Cherry Ripe Chunks

cherries, chunks, cherry ripe

This recipe is amazing if you’re a recovering Cherry Ripe addict – just like the ‘real’ bars…only they taste way better cos they’re made from real food! So easy, the perfect GF vegan dessert or just to have in the freezer for treats!

Ingredients

1x 750g Vegan BallBag
90g coconut oil
3 tsp vanilla essence
2.5 cups of fresh cherries, chopped

3. Press the BallBag mixture firmly into a paper-lined baking tray or container (about 5-7mm thickness is good).

4. Spoon the choc-cherry mixture on top & spread evenly, pressing down firmly & into the edges of your baking tray/s.

SNEAKY SNICKERS PIE- GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, GUILT FREE

This healthy version of a snickers pie has a chocolate ballbag base, a decadent caramel layer topped with a coconutty mouse. Super tasty, super easy and super healthy (well…kinda anyway). Feel free to melt some organic or vegan chocolate and pour on top for a perfect finish!

Ingredients

Crust
1 375g Vegan ballbag
45g Coconut oil

Caramel Layer
10 Medjool dates, pitted, soaked in boiling water for 10 min and then drained
3 tsp coconut oil or ghee
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp unsalted almond butter

Peanut Butter Mousse
2 cans full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
3/4 c peanut butter(smooth)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt

Additions
1/2 cup dark/organic/vegan chocolate of choice, for drizzling (optional)
Method
Crust
Mix Ballbags in with the coconut oil and then press into a baking paper lined 8″ round pie pan. The baking paper lining is really important – you won’t be able to get the pie out if you don’t use it and no one wants to deal with that raw dessert drama. Place in freezer to set while you make caramel ingredients.

Caramel
Add all the CARAMEL ingredients to the food processor (no need to clean between making this and the crust) and process until very smooth. Spread an even layer atop pie crust and return

Peanut Butter Mousse
Open the coconut milk cans and scoop out solid white coconut cream (save the remaining coconut water for a smoothie). Add to food processor with remaining MOUSSE ingredients, then process until smooth. Spread evenly atop of caramel layer, then return to freezer.

If desired, top with an additional drizzle of dark chocolate, melted in a double boiler or microwave.

Freeze overnight, and store in freezer but let de-thaw on counter for about 10 min before serving your very own healthy snickers pie

Serves approx –


10-12

Sweetheart Strawberry Cheesecake

Dairy free, Gluten Free, Raw and Ridiculously Tasty!

OMG- so I have tasted and attempted many raw cheesecakes over the years but this one is seriously ridiculous!! The secret to the real cheesecake taste is the tang from the lemon juice! Not only is it gluten free and dairy free but the good fats and fibre from the cashews stops the insulin spike and the sugar coma like from a traditional cheesecake. WARNING- this cheesecake is highly addictive so hide it from your partner and kids.

Ingredients


Base:
1 375g bag of Vegan BallBags
45g coconut oil

Filling:
2 cups cashews, soaked overnight
2 cups fresh strawberries
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup coconut oil
1-2tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla essence

Topping
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries (or other fruit of choice)

Method


1. Grease a 20cm heart shaped (or round) cake tin with baking paper
2. Prepare BallBags mix as per packet instructions and press into base of tin. Freeze for 20 minutes
3. Blend all ‘filling’ ingredients in food processor and blend until extra smooth layer over base. Tap tin to ensure there are no air pockets and filling is level. Refrigerate overnight
4. When ready to serve, decorate with your favourite fruits or sprinkle with cacao or coconut flakes.

Serves approx


8-10
