WARM date & gingerbread cake

WARM date & gingerbread cake

This cake is a veganised version of my mum’s gingerbread. It is so dense and decadent. I have no self control, so when I make this cake I do so knowing that I will be eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner…! However, obviously great for sharing, and if you bake in a more shallow...
RAW peppermint creams

RAW peppermint creams

In this recipe, coconut oil, desiccated coconut, peppermint oil and stevia are blitzed to create a creamy centre akin to the creamy fillings of after dinner mints. Depending on the desired texture, add more or less coconut oil to the mixture, and blitz until you are happy with the texture. For this recipe you can...
RAW coconut yoghurt

RAW coconut yoghurt

  Healing ingredients: Coconut: a truly amazing food, coconuts provide the body with a range of nutrients including bacteria, magnesium, calcium and potassium. As a food source, cultured coconut forms an alkalising and anti-fungal yoghurt that soothes the stomach and repairs minor damage to the intestinal lining by rebalancing the pH state of the gut...
RAW himalayan salt & cacao nib glittery chocolate

RAW himalayan salt & cacao nib glittery chocolate

All that glitters… and this raw chocolate totally does! The salt in this recipe gives the chocolate a beautiful dark glittery density, and the cacao nibs provide a crunchy texture – but if salted sweets aren’t your thing, try some of the alternatives listed below the recipe. Healing Ingredients: Cacao: high in magnesium, an important...
RAW coconut, lime & kiwi 'cheesecake'

RAW coconut, lime & kiwi ‘cheesecake’

This raw dessert uses coconut, (rather than nuts) to bind the cake ingredients. I find many raw desserts very ‘nut heavy’ – nut bases with nut creme fillings – so I wanted to try something a bit lighter. I didn’t think that the shredded coconut and coconut milk would bind, but it worked beautifully! The...
BAKED matcha & red bean marbled cupcakes

BAKED matcha & red bean marbled cupcakes

Matcha! Matcha! Matcha! It’s a push to call any cupcakes healthy, but I think these ones come pretty close. With a matcha green tea base, red bean swirl and a sprinkle of pistachios they are also gluten free -and of course, vegan. So, close enough really! I used a recipe from Eat Drink and Be...
RAW easy chili & cacao mousse

RAW easy chili & cacao mousse

This mousse is inspired by a chilli hot chocolate recipe, and is so easy to make – just throw everything in the blender, or use a hand-held blender, and combine until soft and smooth. I freeze mine to make chocolate ice cream – it maintains the same consistency frozen – I recommend trying it! Healing Ingredients:...
BAKED lemon, coconut, sesame & cranberry cookies

BAKED lemon, coconut, sesame & cranberry cookies

These cookies are sweet and zesty all at once , and for optimum flavour, try to use organic options for all ingredients. You will need a blender to blitz the ground flaxseeds and water – a handheld mixer will do the job fine. The use of ground flaxseeds was inspired by a recipe here from...

RAW vegan cherry ripe

RAW vegan cherry ripe

I am biased, but I think this might be my favourite home-style raw dessert yet! As always, really simple ingredients and easy to make. I am having a bit of a love affair with rosewater at the moment, and having just returned with a beautiful new bottle from India, I had to include it in...
RAW banana parfait with salted pecan brittle and caramel swirls

RAW banana parfait with salted pecan brittle and caramel swirls

  This is a bit indulgent….! Refrigerates well for a day or two, so if you have any left over it will be fine in the fridge. Just the usual blending business, but you will need to allocate some time for soaking your cashews (3-4 hours) before making the banana cream. You will only need...
