Hello guys, hope you are having a wonderful relaxed Sunday! I’ve had such a lovely extended weekend – being off on Friday was a real treat and turned out to be an almost perfect day, but more on that to come later in the week.

I have been enjoying my kitchen time this weekend and have made some utterly luscious goodies! I am going to tease you with pictures of some raw treats:

Those would be my raw caramel slice and raw fruit and nut chocolate! Incredible, will be sharing the recipe soon! I also made some little raw cacao nib and goji berry chocolates:

Alongside those I had several brown banana’s that needed using up so decided to make something I could share with James and take through for my friends. I made some chocolate banana macaroons and they were gorgeous:

That would be James hand pinching one off the plate while I was taking a pic! These are so so simple and taste surprisingly buttery. They might not look that photogenic but what they lack in looks they make up for in taste. They only have 5 ingredients too!

I took them through to my friends house last night, we had a girls night in which was just brilliant. We ate garlic bread, tortilla chips and salsa, fresh strawberries and chocolate as well as those macaroons. Here’s a quick OOTD:

I adore that jumper and those jeans are fantastic. I got them in the sale and they are just the softest denim. They are the ‘Martha’ straight leg cut and I got them slightly long so I could roll the bottoms up :-)

This morning I went to a kettle bell class for the first time in ages. It was really enjoyable! When I came home I made myself this delicious smoothie:

Vanilla sun warrior protein powder, 1 nectarine, 2 doughnut peaches, 1/4 can of full fat coconut milk, ice, water. Well lush :-) Yesterday morning for brunch I’d made myself a socca pancake topped with my home made vanilla sea salt sunflower seed and cashew butter and some raspberry chia jam:

I’ve seen chia seed jam on several blogs and had been meaning to try it. I just mashed some fresh raspberries with 1/2 tbsp of chia seeds and left overnight to thicken. Delish!

For part of my lunch today I’ve just enjoyed this big bowl of raw kelp noodles with an avocado, tahini and white miso sauce topped with some fresh parsley:

I haven’t had kelp noodles in ages and this was lovely and creamy.

As I got so much fruit at the market on Friday I decided to add some to my usual ‘hard core’ green juice:

This was so good – the usual cucumber, celery and ginger base with added parsley and pineapple. I’ll be having more of that this afternoon!

Are you a fan of raw chocolate or raw desserts?

Well I am going to watch the Men’s Wimbledon Final! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
