Can you possibly get all those tags all in one tasty treat? and if you can, will it taste ANY GOOD AT ALL??? I have too many people ask me this and I almost get offended to start. But I calm myself.

I have to remember, not everyone has learnt yet and patience is key when your goal is to ‘teach a new way of life’.

Let me teach you! Its not going to happen over night but I will gradually teach you, everything I know.

So the recipe…. My 3 ABSOLUTE favourite elements!

Strawberries – Oh So sweet, delicate, juicy and  yummy food for the soul. But if you pick em too late an spray them with nasties. You’ll find they can be quiet revolting and off putting and the inside often doesn’t reflect the beautiful image, a real strawberry brings to the senses.

Lemon – Can’t go past that sassy refreshing tang of a lemon. Once it initially hits your tongue with its acidic sensation and explodes through your mouth. You cringe at its sourness but that soon passes. When it does you fall in love with the alkalinity of how it makes you feel from the inside out, clean and nourished. A bit like brutal honesty…hurts to start but then you feel kinda liberated and refreshed after the initial blow.

Dark Chocolate – Every body has a dark side, I totally love mine! and you should absolutely  love your own too.

IMG_2864Sorry the Recipe!!

Combine all wet ingredients in the food processor, transfer to a bowl and combine your dry ingredients.

1/2 punnet of Strawberries – organic and spray free if you can –  you’ll get the sweetest taste ever.

1.5 cups of coconut (shredded finely)

3/4 cup flax meal

1/2 cup lemon juice and zest of those lemons

Dark chocolate; use double boiling method.

1/2 cup cacao butter melted

1/4 cup coconut oil melted

1/2 cup Raw Cacao

1/3 cup Maple Syrup

pinch of salt and a dash of vanilla

blend in a food processor until combined, think and creamy!

Add more coconut if your strawberries are super juicy. But remember flax meal will absorb moisture, so wait a minute or so.

Chuck em in the fridge to chill.

Enjoy!
