Everyone can usually find their ‘sweet tooth’ and enjoy a treat – so why not take advantage of all the wonderful sweet delights that Nature’s whole foods provide.

The Superfood Dessert

It can be a whole new exploration to enjoy some delightful desserts that are guilt-free! That said… go easy on the Honey or Agave syrup. Even though they are natural sugars, they still mean more fructose that you consume – and the body can’t tell the difference between where different sugars come from.

This delicious Superfood Dessert is bursting with sweet natural flavour and has all the benefits of superfoods, antioxidants, fibre, omega-3, protein, vitamins and minerals! It is also free of sugar, gluten and dairy!
