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.Read More
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.Read More
Iced tea has proven to be one of the healthiest drinks available. Not only does it revive you on a hot day, but also adds nutrients to keep you healthy.
Improving health is a multifaceted process. Many of us are already aware of the steps which one needs to take to maintain a healthy life like quit smoking, keeping a check on the level of alcohol consumed, avoiding fried food, and including a lot of fruits and veggies in our everyday diet.Read More

After hearing lots of talk about a Yonana machine I decided to purchase one and have to say I'm pretty happy I did. For anyone who is unsure of what a Yonana is, it is a machine that makes it possible for vegans, any one who is dairy free or lactose intolerant and those of us who are more health conscious to enjoy frozen desserts similar to ice cream/sorbet/frozen yoghurt. All you need is frozen fruit as a base, along with your favourite topping, mine is dark chocolate and pistachios. Other fruits that process well through this machine are frozen berries, peaches, apricots, mangoes apples and cranberries.Read More
During Summer there is nothing better then enjoying a frozen treat on a hot day and even better if it is guilt free.

It is sweet and creamy with a burst of rich chocolate and hazelnut flavour.

Using cashews in desserts gives a beautiful creamy texture especially when accompanied with coconut milk or cream. Cashews are a rich source of copper, good fats and tryptophan. Your body uses tryptophan to make proteins, the B-vitamin niacin and the neurotransmitters serotonin. Cashews are a great guilt free snack and are also great to make a nut milk with. This mousse is dairy free, refined sugar free, vegan and gluten free.Read More
Blueberries remind me of Summer and there is nothing better then being able to use fresh berries in baking.
I got inspiration from Julia's Raw Chocolate Mousse Tarts and made a tart using fresh blueberries, topped with a delicious coconut whip. The berries have been roasted with balsamic vinegar which tastes amazing combined with coconut sugar. The coconut whip is so easy to make and can be used in so many different recipes and meals!Read More
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.Read More
This recipe is a healthy version of the usual unhealthy highly refined biscuits from the supermarket.
