I've been drinking quite a few chocolate shakes lately. So many that I've been going through my ingredients fast! This vegan shake is the (very) happy result of me running out of my usual chocolate and peanut butter smoothie ingredients…
To me, what sets this shake apart from other popular vegan peanut butter shakes is the fact that it's sweetened with dates, instead of banana. Don't get me wrong - I love bananas in smoothies, but I don't always love the “banana flavour” that comes along with them.
Dates add sweetness without distracting flavour, making this shake downright decadent! It really is like a liquid peanut butter cup!... ››› Read more

A cancer diagnosis is a life-altering event, and the news—let alone making decisions about how to manage treatment—is already challenging enough.
But with a terminal diagnosis, those choices become even more fraught. At some point, say ethicists, doctors and patient advocates, enough is enough. Meaning you have to weigh the potential for benefit against the quality of what life is likely to be left.
But where is that line? And how does each patient find it?
A study published in JAMA Oncology highlights just how agonising those choices can get. Read on to find out more - it will send a chill down your spine.... ››› Read more
