Seriously delicious and decadent. It is kind of like a healthy Turkish Delight rip-off. It is sugar free, gut loving and absolutely nutrient dense. They make the perfect after dinner treat for guests or just yourself, or a quick snack in the morning or afternoons. 


RASPBERRY JELLY

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup thawed organic raspberries (if there is juice from the raspberries from thawing, do not discard and just include it with the mix as it will intensify the flavour) I use the brand oob organic 
  • 2 1/2 cups filtered water 
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence 
  • 3 Tbsp gelatin
  • 1 tbsp of your choice of sweetener, 10-15 drops liquid stevia, or monk fruit or Lakanto added to taste 

METHOD

1. Blend 2 cups of the water with the raspberries on high for at least one minute. If using a granulated sweetener, add to this mix as well and blend with the raspberries. 

2. Using a strainer or a muslin cloth, pour the blended mix through and into another bowl and discard the seeds. Keep the strained mix reserved just for a moment. 

3. Combine the gelatine and the remaining 1/2 cup of water to 'bloom' the gelatine. This means that the gelatine will absorb the water and become a thick mass. 

4. In either your Thermomix or a low heated saucepan, add the gelatine mix and just a splash of the strained raspberry mix to heat through the gelatine so it dissolves/melts. Continue to stir through until well combined which will not take long. We are only adding a splash of the raspberry mix because we want to keep the nutrients in the raspberries in tact, for example heat destroys vitamin C. 

5. Remove from the heat, and pour the gelatine mix into the remaining raspberry mix along with all of the remaining ingredients. Stir until fully combined, have a little taste and decide whether you want to add a little more lemon or sweetness.

6. Pour the mix into a tin or container lined with baking paper, and place in the fridge to set. This will take a couple of hours.


CHOCOLATE

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp ghee (or coconut oil if required, though ghee tastes amazing with this!)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 10 drops of liquid stevia, 1 Tbsp of honey, maple syrup, or Lakanto or monk fruit sweetener to taste

METHOD

1. In a low heated saucepan, combine all ingredients and stir till everything is mixed though well. 

2. Allow to cool just slightly, a little warmth is okay, though we don't want to melt the raspberry jelly!

3. Once the jelly has set, pour the chocolate over the top so it forms a thin layer. 

4. Place in the fridge to set, or the freezer for 10 minutes if you're impatient!  

5. To serve, remove from the fridge and slice carefully to ensure you don't crack the chocolate. Enjoy with a smile!

INGREDIENTS

FILLING

  • 1/2 cup coconut cream or coconut yogurt

  • 1/4 coconut oil 
  • 3 tsp vanilla essence or one vanilla pod
  • 3 Tbsp of Lakanto, stevia, or honey to taste  
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh chopped strawberries (or raspberries are great too, and I use the brand oob organic). 

BASE

  • 3 cups desiccated coconut 
  • 3 tbsp coconut cream (pure, no additives)
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp Lakanto, stevia, or honey to taste  
  • 1 tbsp of your choice of sweetener, 10-15 drops liquid stevia, or monk fruit or Lakanto added to taste 

METHOD

base

1. Place the desiccated coconut into your blender and blend until as fine as you can make it. 

2. Add of the remaining base ingredients into the blender and blend until well combined. 

3. Line a springform cake tin with baking paper at the base, and then press down the base ingredients evenly. 

4. Place in the freezer.

filling

1. Blend all ingredients apart from the strawberries until extra creamy and delicious. Taste the mix to ensure the sweetness is to your liking. 

2. Remove 1.5 cups of the mix and set aside.

3. Add the strawberries and blend until completely smooth, and pour over the base. 

4. Allow to set for roughly 30 minutes, or until only slightly firm. 

5. Pour the vanilla topping over the strawberry mix, and using a small knife, tooth pick, or end of a spoon, swirl the mix around so the strawberry and vanilla mixes somewhat combine and make a swirl effect. Create a pattern you like!

5. Place in the freezer to set, which may take roughly 2 hours. If it is completely solid, allow it to thaw slightly, and using a hot knife (run under hot water for 30 seconds), gently slice a piece. 

6. Enjoy!
