How about this for a wild flavour combination! The creaminess and goodness of natural avocado with the highly nutritious and texture laden chia seeds. A raw and frozen, high healthy fat snack with a natural sugar kick of raw honey. So simple to make in the food processor and completely made of Whole Foods and completely gluten & dairy free.
2 cups nuts (activated almonds or similar)
1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup coconut flakes or shredded coconut
1 large or 2 small avocados
3 tablespoons raw honey
1 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup chia seeds.
Place all ingredients in the blender and process until smooth and creamy.
Return the slice to the freezer and have as desired. The whole process is quick and having these snacks in the freezer is so handy.
I hope you enjoy this raw treat. Eat it mindfully and share the recipe with a friend so that we can spread the wellness message.

A delicious raw and frozen snack bar that will add some sweetness to your day! This is a raw version of one of my most popular recipes ‘Sensational Seed and nut bars’ which are baked in the oven and have a crispier texture. This raw version is equally delicious but has the added benefit of not being baked which preserves the nutrients in ingredients such as raw honey.
Having healthy snacks on hand is vital if you are going to avoid making poor food choices. Being on a restricted diet is hard enough without feeling hungry or as though you are missing out. These bars are healthy, sweet, paleo, gluten, dairy and processed sugar free. They are filled with natural goodness and can be kept in an air tight container in the freezer. All of the ingredients l use are organic and the nuts and larger seeds are activated which means l have soaked them in filtered water and sea salt for a day, rinsed them well and then dehydrated. This process helps to remove the anti-nutrients and support good digestion.
1 cup activated organic sunflower seeds
1 cup activated organic pumpkin seeds
1 cup organic sesame seeds
1 cup black chia seeds
1 cup activated mixed nuts (e.g almond, walnut, and brazil)
A generous 1/2 cup organic shredded coconut
8 Medjool Dates seeded and chopped (roughly chop just to make it easier for the food processor)
A good 1/2 cup raw organic honey (use organic or regular honey if that is what you have)
1 cup of organic coconut oil
Place all ingredients into the food processor and mix until well combined. If your food processor isn’t very strong pulse the nuts and dates first to break them up a bit before adding the other ingredients.
Line a glass baking dish with baking paper and pour the mix in. Now is a good time to have a taste test. The mix should be sweet and delicious. Use a spatula to flatten the mix and make sure it is quite even across the whole dish.

A decadent and delicious healthy raw and frozen treat for the chocolate lovers. A smooth and sweet treat with chunks of nuts, free of gluten, dairy and processed sugar. Filled with healthy fats, this is a snack that can be kept in the freezer and eaten when something sweet is desired. The healthy fats come from avocados, nuts and coconut oil which are whole foods, and this slice is packed with nutritious ingredients including vitamins, minerals, fibre and anti-oxidants.
A food processor is a must to make this delight. Place all of the ingredients in the bowl with the mixer blade and process. Simple. Sometimes the medjool dates can get stuck so it is a good idea to give them a few pulses first to chop them up a bit and then add in the nuts and do the same. This recipe has the addition of a Superfood powder and l like the Loving Earth blend but you can easily replace it with your own favourite.
3 cups of nuts (I like to use the harder nuts being almond, walnut or brazil. For this recipe l used all raw activated almonds but you can use a mixture)
1 1/2 cups of coconut flakes (or use shredded or dessicated coconut)
1/4 cup raw honey
2 tablespoons raw cacao
Have a taste test now and then put the slice into a baking dish lined with baking paper. I made the first batches without the baking paper and just greased the dish but the slice was a but tricky to get out of the pan so l would advise using the paper.
I hope you enjoy this delicious treat which is made with real ingredients and free of so many of the nasty chemicals we are seeing in food today. As a chocolate lover l really enjoyed creating this recipe and hope you share it with your friends and have a great time making and eating it.

A flavour taste sensation filled with so many wonderful nourishing nutrients and making use of ingredients that usually go to waste.
Bone broth is nutrient dense and extremely healing for the digestive system. In addition to this it is filled with an incredible flavour that can be enjoyed on its own as a drink or used in your favourite meals.
To make the stock you need to have the remainders of the turkey after you have cooked it and enjoyed a lovely meal.
To make the broth place your turkey leftovers in a big pot and fill it 3/4 of the way with filtered water. Add to the pot 1/4 cup of organic apple cider vinegar, a few peppercorns, onion, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, a few bay leaves and an assortment of vegetables such as celery ends or carrots.
It is hard to go wrong and the actual quantity of each ingredient doesn’t have to be exact. The apple cider vinegar is important though as it helps to leach the minerals and nutrients from the bones.
Bring the broth to the boil and then let simmer with the lid on for around 24 hours. The house will smell lovely.
When the broth is cool strain it to so you are left with a clear liquid. Let it cool in the fridge and then skim the fat and solids off the top. The broth is now ready to use or can be frozen.
