  • Have you ever had to say NO to dessert as it was unhealthy, or had one or more ingredients that didn't agree with you?

  • Have you ever had to cater for a guest with a dietary allergy or intolerance, and not known what to make?

  • Do you desperately want to eat healthier food, but can't find recipes that are as delicious as their traditional alternatives?

  • Do you want to feel better about your sweet tooth?


I can totally relate...

Since being lactose intolerant and gluten sensitive, I've had to say no to many desserts. When we had guests over, I would usually make them a dessert that I could not eat. Missing out sucks, and making two desserts when you only need one sucks too!

So in 2013, I started adapting classic dessert recipes into healthier versions. Desserts that have nourishing real food ingredients, loads of flavour and you won't regret eating afterwards. I had such a big catalogue of desserts, that I decided to create an eCookbook to share them with you. There are 50+ desserts in BecomingSweet with many of them not available on my blog Becomingness.
