While I would love to gorge myself on a packet of Jaffa Cakes (the king of UK treats – look them up!), I would hate to know the list of ingredients. Living healthily means finding a balance of whole foods, while enjoying the taste of things you love, so here’s my replacement for the Jaffa Cake, and a fine one at that. Jaffa Protein Balls at the ready…
Clean Chocolates & Candy
Sometimes it’s not easy to stomach a green smoothie first thing in a morning. While it’s awesome to have high-quality nutrients flood your body, it can be an unenjoyable taste experience when you’ve just risen. This recipe is offer a much more fun experience – and helps to get your kids to eat their greens too! Enjoy alone as a snack any time, or cube and add to breakfast bowls and salads. Can also be used as a jelly spread for your wholemeal toast! Move over refined sugar-laden marmalade.
These are real grown-up dessert cups. Deliciously rich, totally guilt free. Theres nothing quite like the delicious mix of dark chocolate with fresh sweet cherries. Throw in some caramel superfood powder with gooey tahini, and you have one melt-in-the-mouth dessert. Long day at work? You can whip these up in under 20 minutes.
This Clean Cookie Fudge recipe is too amazing for words. Its creamy, rich and smooth like real dairy fudge, but without all the nasties like sugar, butter and cream. Delightfully filling too – chickpeas are full of fiber so you only need a few squares to kick that craving all night!
Everybody gets a sweet tooth now and again. I’ll admit that mine rears its head more than most, which is why I like to find healthy ways of satisfying it, so that I don’t pile on the pounds. We all know that sugar makes us fat, so portion control and relying on natural sugars is a must when it comes to the sweet stuff. These little guys are a perfect balance of good fats and carbs – awesome post workout with a shake to help your body synthesise the protein, but also a fantastic little dessert for when you need a quick sweet hit.
This is one delicious super-food treat. Soft, chocolatey and crunchy, it really doesn’t get any better than this. Oh, did I mention it’s made with only healthy ingredients? Uh-huh.
You’ve spent 45 minutes working hard to define those muscles, so don’t undo all your work with a stop at the vending machine. Grab a cup of green tea and whip up a batch of these babies in under 30 minutes.
