The power of the mind is a wonderful assest, you here the saying 'Dream, Believe, Achieve' so often however have you taken the time to put this into action? I must admit that I didn't really see or understand the power of mindset until I had seen changes occuring in my life from the focus I had applied to achieving my dreams and focusing on them daily. No matter how big they are and even if they scare you (they are probably big enough and are really meaningful if they scare you!). Everyday believe you can achieve them, think of them daily and with this shift along with hard work you will figure out how to get there.
Take five minutes and enjoy this clip, this really cements the importance of mindset.
If you are looking for a little treat and don't want to have a large amount sitting around to tempt you later, you will love this one! This reminded me a little of a snickers bar with so much less sugar and preservatives. Unfortunately it was devoured before I thought to take a picture....next time 😊
Ingredients - makes 2 desserts
4 tsp coconut oil
4 tsp raw cacao
4 tsp pure maple syrup
4 tblsp natural peanut butter (100% peanuts nothing else)
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
Sprinkle of rock salt
Strawberries or similar for adding as a topping or omit completely.
Melt coconut oil and then mix in cacao, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Finally add in the peanut butter and mix well till combined. Place in a serving dish if you are going to top with berries or alternatively a small tray if you want to cut and serve as small pieces. Place in the freezer to set for approximately 10min, top with berries, serve and enjoy!
I started making this after I wanted to allow our boys to enjoy a dessert that wasn't sugar ladened. They absolutely love strawberries, we use around 4 punnets of strawberries a week. Luckily for this dessert I can have some on hand all the time with frozen strawberries. I will admit I haven't measured anything in quantities, yet it is so simple I don't think you need to.
Cream (full fat, light, lactose free or coconut) - what ever your taste buds and tummy desire!
Place your frozen strawberries in a blender and pulse till they are broken into little pieces. Poor in a small amount of cream and blend well, taste and add more cream until you are at the flavour you desire.
Experiment and enjoy, you can substitute in any time of fruit or a combination.. A great option for your occasional treat.
