I have a major sweet tooth and it shows, I’m never going to be a supermodel with a six pack and hey that’s okay.
Sometimes I do try keep it ‘clean’ though so that I can have a delicious treat without feeling too guilty.
One thing I love about any vegan or ‘healthy’ treats is that they are so dam easy to make. This one is no exception, create your layers and store them in the fridge to enjoy.
For the Ice cream
2 tins coconut milk
2 tbs agave
1 tsp vanilla essence
½ cup almond milk
For the caramel
3 tbs almond butter
For the magic shell
1 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs cocoa powder
1 tsp agave
Nakd salted caramel nibbles ( Dischem stock these )
Be sure to set these in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before devouring them. It may seem like allot of ingredients but its super quick and simple and you won’t regret making these.

The best part of Valentine’s day is all the yummy chocolates you get. It’s a great excuse to indulge a little. However, for those of you that don’t want to go too far I’ve got the perfect ‘good for you’ snack.
These are chocolates which have a seriously yummy peanut butter layer.Not only is this vegan but it’s also full of healthy fatty acids. If you prefer a healthier sweetener, then go for maple syrup or honey.
½ mug coconut oil
Peanut butter layer
¼ cup unsweetened peanut butter
1 ½tbs coconut oil
Try use silicone moulds as they are super easy to get out.

Christmas can be hectic and we often run around last minute trying to get everyone a gift. Today I’m sharing with you quick last minute Christmas gifts which are super easy and won’t cost you allot of money.
Make your own hot chocolate
You will need:
2 sachets of hot chocolate (I add a white and chocolate)
Handful of mini marshmallows
1 candy cane
Put your marshmallows in a small sandwich bag and tie up with a red ribbon then add all other items in the cup and you’re done.
This is a cute, quick and easy gift which is sure to impress anyone who gets it.
These are the perfect treat for all your friends and family and don’t take up too much of your time. I made a batch of ginger cookies as well as my sugar cookies .
350g self-rising flour
1 tbs ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
175g musgovado sugar
I buy the pre-packaged icing sugar for cookies from Woolies. All you need to do is add water and your desired colours. It includes dried egg whites which is hard to find on its own. This helps the icing set hard and prevents smudging. For both batches of my normal sugar cookies and the ginger cookies, I only used half the icing sugar bag.
Once everything is dried, fill up brown paper bags with cookies and finish them off with a bright red ribbon.
This is such a simple and delicious gift that you cannot go wrong with.
