guilt free sweet treat

We love chocolate as much as the next girl, but don’t like all the artificial stuff in store bought treats. As we always say, everything homemade is better so here is a quick, healthy and delicious treat that you can whip up next time you have a craving. It is gluten free, raw, vegan, oil free and sugar free – perfect for everyone.

4. Use a tablespoon to scoop out balls to place on a lined tray. Place in the freezer for 1 hour or until firm. You can store them in an airtight container in the freezer so you have a treat to grab anytime you need it.
