Just because it’s the most romantic day of the year doesn’t mean you need to ditch your wholefoods eating habit, and you’ll have even more fun whipping up something special for someone very special than you would a trip to the shops!

Check out this fantastic lineup of gorgeous wholefood treats for your valentine this year.

 

Easy Vegan Chocolate – The Minimalist Baker

Easy Vegan Chocolate The Minimalist BakerLet’s start simple! I LOVE this recipe from The Minimalist Baker for super simple vegan chocolate. It has just a few ingredients (although I’d swap out the agave syrup for maple or brown rice malt) and it so easy to customize with all your favourite flavours. Add some desiccated coconut to make coconut roughs, fruit and nuts (fig + pistachio is a great combo) or get creative with yummy dried banana and dried mango!

Shop for everything you need here – cacao, cacao nibs, cacao butter, vanilla, Himalayan salt, maple syrup or brown rice syrup.

 

Five Ingredient Avocado Pudding – Easy GF Recipes

Chocolate Avocado puddingCacao powder doesn’t agree with everyone, which is why I think this silky smooth chocolate pudding recipe is absolutely brilliant, using gorgeous organic carob powder instead of cacao or cocoa powders.

The recipe calls for just 5 ingredients and whizzes up in minutes, making it pretty foolproof and perfect for time poor folks.
