Salmon Ceviche Salad

This no-cook method of preparing fish is a great dish for impressing someone! The trick is to buy the best quality and freshest fish that you can, so that it cuts smoothly and easily, allowing you to make it as thin as possible. I’ve used kingfish for this recipe, but you can use any firm, white fish – such as sea bass, or cod – or tuna instead.

Serves 2
Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cocoa, coconut & date balls

With every Balance Box our customers are given daily snacks and our most popular snack is the Bliss Bar. The sweetness of the dates and coconut blend with the bitterness of the cocoa to form an irresistible treat made with natural, healthy ingredients. 

We’ve modified our recipe to make smaller bliss balls which are the perfect treat or gift for Easter. This recipe will make around 15 balls.

Rhubarb and banana crumble in a dish all cooked and ready to eat.

Rhubarb and Banana Crumble

I love fruit crumble, but often find it quite heavy and stodgy.  So I started playing around with the idea of a granola-esque topping, and came up with this. It’s got a wonderful bite and all the flavour and comfort of traditional a crumble.

Serves 2
