This is one of my favourite raw desserts to whip together for a shared lunch or dinner. I love to have something sweet like this in the freezer at all times, to have for dessert with a cup of herbal camomile/sleep tea. Plate them up with a side of my Coconut Cashew Chia Cream or your favourite coconut or plant-based yoghurt, a few berries, and dessert is sorted! Or try it with my Vanilla Bean Ice Cream - just gorgeous. 100% raw, vegan, dairy free, plant-based whole foods, that just happens to also be gluten free and paleo friendly too... it doesn't get much better than this! Good for your body and good for your soul too.

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.
