The Perfect Healthy Indulgence 

This healthy take on rocky road courtesy of nutrition guru Jessica Sepel looks and tastes incredible! Sweetened with natural medjool dates, it’s refined-sugar free and full of healthy fats, making it a satiating yet decadent treat. Get creative with the additions too – white mulberries, goji berries, coconut or your favourite nuts and seeds will taste deeeeeelish!
