Raw Lime, Pistachio and Coconut Truffles

Guys! These raw truffles are like ‘whoa’! If you are a fan of anything with that citrus tang, you will absolutely love these! Lime and coconut were always best pals, and it is no different here. Yes, they taste fantastic, but do you know what? They are also green! Green food, just in time for…

Kiwifruit, Lime and Coconut Slice {gf}

It’s July already and I’m just now thinking about St Patrick’s Day. Typical. Significant dates, events or holidays always seem to catch me off guard. I even forgot our wedding anniversary last year! And yet these dates are annual reminders to us of the beliefs, traditions, and relationships that are important to us, and are worth celebrating!…

Vegan Lime and Coconut cupcakes {gf}

It was time to celebrate … My sister-in-law had just completed the very last exam of many in the long years of training to become a medical doctor, now general practitioner.

Rules surrounding what one can consume at school are getting so rigid these days, but never fear! This baby is nut-free. It is…

Raspberry & Coconut Icy Poles

I made my first ever batch of homemade coconut ice cream the other day. It was creamy, sweet and refreshing, but I couldn’t help wondering why it tasted so familiar. Then I remembered. My mother had made coconut ice cream regularly when we were children, growing up in the steamy tropical lowlands of Papua New…
