This whole week has been a fight against sugar, my biggest addiction, and I’m happy to say that I’ve been very good. Naturally, I felt the need for a little reward (I don’t want my body to go into shock you see and it’s Friday after all). Foregoing my usual sugar binge by raiding the shop for chocolate or store bought cake, I opted for a raw, vegan delight at Bella Vegan in Muizenberg.
I felt whole again. And a lot less guilty.
The crust is made with nuts, dates and coconut. Jen, the creator of this delight, was so kind to explain the recipe to me even though I think it should be a closely guarded secret passed down to all the future generations of Bella Vegans.
For dessert, I had a lemon and poppy seed muffin, topped with vegan buttercream and lime zest. This is completely egg and dairy free, yet the muffin is as light as a cloud and the buttercream, well, buttercreamy.
No animals were eaten or deprived of their future babies/ mother’s milk during the making of this post. Win!
Have a lovely weekend xx
