EASTER TREATS

www.jeskaalee.com

I cannot believe we are into April today… the days are flying by! As you may have learnt from my recent post here I am slightly addicted to chocolate, especially anything of the dark kind (oh and I definitely never say no to a ferrero rocher, no matter how bad they are for me, they are just so yummy!). I don't go and eat a whole huge packet or anything like that but I do fancy a square or two nearly ever day, usually I crave something sweet to enjoy with my tea of a night time.

Easter is pretty much just around the corner (in a couple of days to be exact) and to a lot of us that means a little indulgence in some chocolate goodness.. yes please! I was recently reading the Move Nourish Believe Blog after I received one of their newsletters and they are always onto it with delicious healthy recipes! So I wanted to share a few I came across and loved from their blog that would be perfect for you to recreate for your easter weekend with fam or friends or when you are craving some chocolate!

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE MOUSSE

Most of us crave something whether it be sweet or savoury am I right? For me I crave chocolate, usually dark chocolate (the good stuff) and if I am presented with chocolate I usually never turn it down.. it's just so good! I even got a little (a lot) excited when I discovered that a square of dark chocolate a day can assist with decreasing stress..score! 

In this post I am introducing a product I recently tried out and I am in love.. D.I.Y chocolate dream mousse that is easy as adding water and stirring.. yep that easy (Oh and I added some crushed almonds because they are delish too). Simply Natural Protein Mousse is a super easy snack, treat or dessert for any time of day I say. A huge plus is the mousse is also non GMO, gluten free, hypo allergenic.

The Simply Natural company formulate, manufacture and provide and innovative range of 100% natural solutions to your health and nutritional problems. They are also 100% Aussie owned and manufactured (Big Plus!) and they demand truth in labelling, quality of product whilst bringing out only innovative products.. have I got you interested? Head to their website to check out their products for yourself and do your taste buds a favour!

I cannot wait to try out the Tiramisu Dream & Choc Coconut mousse next. Oh and nope I didn't share with Baxter but he thought it smelt really good and just wanted to steal some and photobomb because he is a cheeky rat!

HOW TO WRITE A LOVE LETTER


"LET ALL THAT YOU DO BE DONE IN LOVE".


We live in a very digital world nowadays and I feel that can be a good thing & a bad thing depending on how you look at it. I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes in this modern day we aren't expressing ourselves in person nearly as much as in the past before the world wide web came into our lives. We are texting, calling, emailing, tweeting, instagraming (the list goes on) our thoughts & feelings with each other.

Yes there are totally positives to the fact that we are expressing ourselves & this is a wonderful thing to be able to express ourselves freely & so convinently but I think sometimes it is really nice to say, feel or do something in person or in an old fashioned way, in the moment so you have a real understanding of the sentiment or words being expressed to you.

I have decided this Valentine's Day to write a love letter to Jays.. and actually write it pen to paper and express how much he means to me in the ye old fashioned way. I absolutely love receiving letters.. I think back to my high school days and remember writing sneaky notes at school, posting letters to my friends (even though I saw them every day) & even having a pen pal in England.

This coming Valentine's Day or whenever you like I think you should write a letter, speak to someone in person & tell them how you feel about them. Write or speak to a friend, a lover, a family member or for something different write yourself a letter saying everything you love about yourself & open it in a years time.


HOW TO WRITE A LOVE LETTER

A few tips on how to hand write a love letter this Valentine's Day.

Tip #1:
Write your letter on some nice stationary that may suit the person you are writing to. 

Tip #2: Find a quiet, peaceful place to write the letter so you think about all the things you want to include in your letter. You could also write a list of the things you want to express in your letter so you have them in front of you.

Tip #3: The basis of your letter should include reasons why you love the person you are writing to, what makes them so wonderful to you & why you appreciate them. You could bring up when you first felt love for this person, how they affected your life in some way or even a moment that reminds you of why you love them.

Tip #4: Don't be too concerned about what your handwriting looks like if you haven't put pen to paper in a while just remember It's all about the meaning of your words. If you need to write a practice letter or two thats okay too.

Tip #5: Most importantly don't be afraid to write about how you really feel. You want your letter to be meaningful, real & from your heart.

HOMEMADE ICED COFFEE

jeskaalee iced coffee recipe

Good Morning Beautiful & hello Friday ..I know a lot of you have one thing on your minds in the mornings and that is.. Coffee!! Am I right? I don't really drink a whole lot of it but there is a really modern but quirky coffee shop up the coast called Canteen based in Burleigh which I enjoy their oh so delicious iced coffee almost every time I eat there.. I think it's so freakin' good that I always want more (and sometimes do order another) what can I say I'm addicted!

I like it so much that I decide I would try (highlight try) to recreate it at home because sometimes it's fun getting creative in the kitchen! I have no idea of the exact ingredients in the one from Canteen but I used my wing it method and just went for feel & taste when I created this here one and sharing is caring so I wanted to share the recipe with you because I think it turned out quite well, if I do say so myself.


WHAT YOU NEED

You may like to use a fun mason jar or whatever drinking device you prefer.
You will also need: Almond + Milk + Honey + Coffee + Ice Cubes

HOW TO MAKE

You will need to make 1 x shot of coffee (or how ever much you like) using a coffee machine or instant coffee - totally up to your own preference + mix in a teaspoon of honey to the hot coffee, then let it cool. Once the coffee has cooled down slightly fill your jar with ice & pour in almond milk then add in your shot of coffee. Serve with a straw & before enjoying stir everything together with the straw until well blended. 
Most importantly enjoy! x

FRESH FACED

"BEAUTY ISN'T ABOUT HAVING A PRETTY FACE. IT'S ABOUT HAVING A PRETTY MIND, A PRETTY HEART & MOST IMPORTANTLY, A BEAUTIFUL SOUL".


jeskaalee

When we look after ourselves & nourish our mind, body & soul we tend to see the difference inside & out. I for one am totally addicted to natural skincare lately & majority of the products I have tried out are all natural & not tested on animals too which is a major plus! I have stumbled across some really beautiful ones that I am in love with just over the past few months & I have shared some with you on Instagram & I will be sharing more with you here on the blog soon!

I decided I would test out some face masks & review them for you on my vlog channel to let you know my thoughts about the products & whether they worked for my skin or not. I tried out 3 x different brands & types of masks by Sanctuary Spa, Formula 10.0.6 & Premium Spa that I picked up from my local Priceline store & for pretty decent prices too!

I hope you enjoy the video and my weird dance moves filling in time while my masks set! Also if you love my channel I'd love for you to subscribe to keep up to date with new videos or if you just generally like my channel thats awesome too!

Enjoy & let me know if you give the masks a go for yourself in a comment below or email me on my contact page & insta is also a great place to chat too! x

Making your own homemade & healthy banana ice cream couldn't be easier! … yummmmm! 
So Ive been doing a little pinterest-ing of late, as you know it's one of my favorite past times and there
 are definitely some very detailed recipes on how to make your own ice-cream ..but I much prefer to make it this quick & simple way & the biggest plus is it is healthy too!

When it comes to my recipes as some of you would also know I like to call them 'wing it' recipes I am not one to measure things specifically, I just go with what feels right & taste test along the way!


WHAT YOU'LL NEED

A Blender
Almond Milk (or other if you prefer)
4 x Ripe & Frozen bananas
Maver's Peanut Butter (or any nut spread you like)
Ground Cinnamon
Ground Nutmeg
Honey 
+ shaved almonds for topping


HOW TO MAKE

Blend the 4 x Bananas + a tiny bit of almond milk (enough to let the blades glide smoothly) in your blender.
Once banana is smooth add in 2 x Tbsp of Peanut Butter + a sprinkling of the cinnamon, nutmeg & a table spoon of honey (however much you like).
Blend all ingredients until blended well.
Serve immediately for soft-serve ice cream consistency or if you just can't wait! 

If you prefer harder ice cream, place it in a container in your freezer for a few hours & then indulge!


I hope you enjoy this delicious homemade ice-cream recipe, I think it's perfect for an after dinner dessert on these warmer nights!
