This is a tasty smoothie alternative when you really feel like a sweet chocolatey hit. Add a few sneaky greens in there if you're game, and you can say this is 100% good for you. Raw cacao is super high in antioxidants, so don't feel bad about your chocolate addiction with this one! Add more or less greens depending on your greens-skill-level (start small people...)

These deliciously dark and mysterious tarts are just a little bit special, with a secret ingredient. Modestly sweet, with an earthy, nutty flavour- a lovely change from the usual fruity/chocolate affairs - give them a go, and fall in love!
These light and fruity muffins use one of my favourite fruits – feijoas! If you’re a feijoa fan you’ll love these (and if not, come to NZ to try them). Best of all, they have no added sugar – just the natural sweetness of feijoas, coconut, dates, and vanilla.
