This nutrient-dense dessert jar will make you smile
This chocolate treat isn’t only divinely decadent, but boasts a host of superfood ingredients such as honey from The True Honey Co., who make a high-quality manuka honey that has wonderful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It’s also New Zealand-made and ethically harvested. Chia seeds are a hero ingredient, as well as being on-trend right now. These little powerhouses are a great source of protein, fibre and omega 3, just to name some benefits. However, the ultimate hero will be you, if you whip this recipe up for a loved one.
Refreshing and delicious, treat yourself to our sin-free, all-natural iced dessert.
With summer is in sight, there’s nothing quite like a refreshing bowl of Blackberry Whip. This super quick and easy recipe, packed full of natural ingredients, is perfect for a mid-afternoon snack.
A deliciously filling berry drink to celebrate summer.
I sometimes make double the amount of this pretty pink drink and put the extra into a big glass jar in the fridge for another day. Often the kids get to it before I can, of course. The strawberry moustache can be a giveaway with my youngest son, Finn. The coconut milk will keep you full for a while by the way – so that’s why it’s satisfying. Did I mention it is mouth-wateringly delicious too? I know this because my kids – who I dub ‘the chief taste-testers’ – love it too. I love berries and it’s so much fun to find a farm where you can pick your own. Check out pickyourown.org to find a farm to visit when the fruit is in season. Take the family on the weekend and pick strawberries to eat and get lots for the freezer too. That way, you can make this recipe with the freshest produce while supporting a local business.
