Berry and Apple Shortcake

Our Mum is an amazing baker and at family dinners this berry and apple shortcake is always served for dessert.

Instead of using regular cane sugar in this recipe which is nothing more than empty calories our Mum has used coconut sugar.  The reason being that during processing coconut sugar does retain nutrients found in the coconut palm.  Some of these nutrients are potassium, magnesium and others.  Coconut Sugar also has a GI of 35 which can help to maintain lower blood sugar and insulin levels.  Compared with cane sugar that has a GI of 68 (anything over 70 -100 is considered high).

Raw Chocolate Mousse Tarts

These tarts are such a beautiful desert and can be served to anyone who is vegan, dairy free, gluten free or refined sugar free.  They are best stored in the freezer so that the mousse filling is nice and hard.  I topped mine with flaked almonds and a bit of coconut but anything can be used.  Fresh fruit, cacao nibs or bickinis would also be delicious.

Lemon and Coconut Slice

This is a recipe for vegan, lemon and coconut slice.  The slice is nut free and refined sugar free, making it the perfect guilt free dessert or snack. The topping tastes beautiful, sweet and creamy and it has a burst of citrus.  This slice is so delicious and satisfying, you would never know its sugar free. I have made this slice twice and I usually double the recipe as it gets eaten so fast! The slice can be kept in the fridge for around a week.
