Snowball sweets

imageMany years ago I spent a lot of time in the kitchen perfecting raw food desserts.  They are so easy to make and so delicious.

As winter closes in, we find ourselves indoors more often, thinking of comforting memories that revolve around feel-good foods.  It is therefore only natural that making desserts with children is a popular pastime at this time of year.

It’s not all celery and hummus in a healthy diet :-)  Even though this recipe contain mineral-rich green powder, the balls do not taste and are not green, but look a  delicious chocolate-y colour.

Carrot slices/ rainbow slices

Rainbow slices: with beetroot, carrot, red and white cabbageThis is a recipe I have been meaning to write up for ages.

I make it for almost every weekend, or for long journeys.  So that where ever we go we have a healthy snack. breakfast/ lunch/ dinner that everyone loves.

Oats are full of B vitamins, so great for post-natal depression.

This is also quite a grounding, nourishing and fulfilling food to take on flights.

Whenever anyone has smelled it cooking, or tasted some, they have asked for the recipe.  I have not yet met someone who hasn’t enjoyed it, so hope you will too!
