Salted Caramel Milkshake

A little bit sweet, a little bit salty. Anything caramel flavoured I am drawn to. In my early 20’s I would go through the McDonald’s drive thru and ask for a cup of caramel sauce and devour the whole thing in a sitting. Long gone are those days, it’s not worth the sugar hangover! If you are a caramel lover, try this homemade milkshake. The combination of dates and cashews make it ultra creamy! Enjoy!

Ferrero Rocher Truffle Balls

Ferrero Rochers are one of my favourite sweet treats so it was only was a matter of time until I decided to make a more wholesome version. This recipe is for 8 Ferrero Rocher Truffle Balls that are raw, indulgent and guilt free. The balls are sweetened with dates and maple syrup and the topping is made of coconut oil and cacao to sub out dairy. The centre has a smooth hazelnut like flavour that literally melts in your mouth. Whip up a batch of these Ferrero Rocher Balls and keep them in the freezer for when you are feeling peckish and needing a sweet treat.

Creamy Chocolate Mousse

Lib and I first made this recipe a few years ago with the inclusion of peanut butter.  It’s hard to believe that the main ingredient is avocado! The mousse is a perfect substitute for traditional dairy mousse, it is so creamy, thick and rich in chocolate flavour.  A great topping for cakes instead of frosting, spoon onto slices of banana or have by itself after dinner. This recipe we have not used a lot of cacao as it can be quite biter and everyone has a different taste preference, so adjust with extra rice malt (any liquid sweeter will do) or add extra cacao if you like its strong taste. Serves 2-4 Ingredients 2 ripe avocados ½ cup coconut cream ¼ cup cacao powder ¼ cup rice malt syrup 1 pinch of salt Method Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth and creamy. Serve straight away…

Vegan Mud Cake with Cashew Icing

Everyone loves a good chocolate cake recipe so I thought I would experiment and make a chocolate cake that is vegan, therefore free of egg and dairy.  This cake is so beautifully moist, gooey and decadent. I have used the cashew icing recipe in a few of my previous desserts but I wanted to make a vibrant pink icing for Valentines Day. I initially tried using raspberries but the icing was lumpy and didn’t have a good consistency, I tried again using beetroot and it blended so well and the colour came out so beautiful. This delectable mud cake is the perfect dessert and it is unbelievably easy to make. I made this for Valentines Day but it would be a hit for any celebration. Cake Ingredients: 2 1/4 cups of unbleached all-purpose gluten free flour 1 cup of coconut oil, melted. 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil. 1.5 tsp of baking powder…

Weet-Bix Energy Bars

Energy bars are the perfect handy and nutritious treat to have when on the go. Most days I will have one in my hand bag so I know I have something sustainable with me, whenever I am feeling peckish.  Majority of the energy and muesli bars found in supermarkets are full of refined sugar, additives, colourings and other harmful preservatives, which makes them anything but energising. It is super easy to make your own that taste just as great without having a sugar crash or ingesting un natural, processed food substitutes. These energy bars contain the new Gluten free Sanitarium Weet-Bix – they are low in sugar, high in vitamins B1, B2 and B3, a great source of iron, fibre and magnesium, and are 96% wholegrain. Made from Sorghum, an ancient grain. Make these bars for the kids lunch boxes, pre or post workout snack or for a guilt free, after…

Coconut Dream Pie

You don’t need to be a trend spotter to know coconuts are so hot right now.  We love using coconuts, whether it is Coconut Water or cooking with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Our appetite for nut and plant milks is on the up and we have a new “nut” on the block.  Move over almond milk! Vitasoy is one of the first major companies to bring Coconut Milk to Australian & New Zealand food lovers keen to try out new flavours.  This excites me as I love coconut anything so now that I have the option of using Vitasoy’s Coconut Milk in smoothies, chia seed puddings and in vegan treat making this my new pantry staple. Why coconut milk?  Vitasoy’s Coconut Milk is made from real coconut cream.  It is low in sugar and has at least 1/3 less calories than lite milk*, contains the goodness of calcium and…

Coconut Ice

With the silly season just around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to share a recipe that is delicious, easy to make, and can be taken to upcoming summer BBQ’s and parties.  I wanted to make a healthier version of the classic coconut ice recipe by replacing the original recipes refined sugar with coconut sugar and red food colouring with beetroot juice. The beetroot juice gives the slice a beautiful, vibrant pink colour. This is a chewy treat that is quick to make and super moreish. It is perfect for a sweet afternoon treat served with a herbal tea or wrapped up as a Christmas gift. * Vegan * Raw * Gluten Free * Dairy Free Ingredients 4 cups of desiccated coconut 1/2 cup of coconut sugar 1 small beetroot or 1 tsp of beetroot powder 400 grams of coconut milk 3/4 cup of coconut oil 1…

Peanut Butter Fudge

Since I can remember I have loved fudge, usually the kind with half a kilo of white or brown sugar in it, usually caramel flavoured (condensed milk, yum) and more often than not I am unable to just have one piece.  Fudge is my vice.  In my ongoing quest to create clean vegan sweets it has lead me to what I would say is my favourite recipe to date.  Just 3 ingredients, how simple can you get? While this fudge contains no dairy, gluten, refined sugar or additives and a whole lot of good fats,  please don’t eat it all at once. Recently I was gifted 5 jars of peanut butter, it was a good day when that delivery arrived.  Lib and I are huge fans of PB, we have used it here and here and here.  If you are allergic, do not worry, you can replace the PB in…

Raspberry Raw Cheesecake

Fan of traditional cheesecake but want to steer clear of all the empty calories, refined sugar and dairy?  If you are a raw food skeptic and have been avoiding raw desserts as you do not think they will have any flavour then I can promise you that this will be the cake to change your mind.  A friend of mine passed this recipe on and since then I have made the cake for a dinner party, birthday and with my 8 year old niece who said “Aunty Juls this cake is yummy are you sure it’s healthy?”. As this cake is raw there will be no oven needed! All you will need is a food processor/blender and some measuring spoons and cups.  Raw cakes tend to be more expensive due to the ingredients used so save this for a special occasion OR put what you don’t eat in the freezer.…

Cookie Dough Truffles

These cookie dough truffles are the perfect little snack to have when on the go.  I usually make a batch of these on a Sunday night to keep in the fridge to have for the following week. Whenever I feel like a sweet treat I will have one. There are only 5 ingredients needed to make these and they take around 5 minutes to make. * Raw * Vegan * Gluten free * Refined sugar free Ingredients 1.5 cups of raw cashew nuts 1.5 cups of pitted dates 1/4 cup of desiccated coconut 1 teaspoon of coconut oil (melted) 1/3 cup cacao nibs Directions 1.
