I lent the I Quit Sugar book by Sarah Wilson to our marketing co-ordinator Lucy over the weekend to have a read and this morning she turned up to the office with a sugar-free sweet treat for all of us to enjoy!
I Quit Sugar Recipe Test: Raspberry Ripple
Hi, Lucy here.
After reading through an incredibly interesting and informative load of eye-opening truths, science facts and compassionate motivation, I was feeling inspired to make one of the 108 sugar free recipes that Sarah Wilson includes in the book.
My first inclination was to head straight to the 'Sweet Treats' section (of course!). I'm not much of a baker (or a maker of any sorts for that matter) so I was happy to find that these recipes looked incredibly easy and quick to make. I knew what I'd be making when I came across the beautiful photograph of the enticing chocolate, berry and coconut oil creation 'Raspberry Ripple' and the affirmation from Sarah Wilson that this is one of her most popular recipes.
Having all the ingredients in my pantry and freezer, within ten minutes of choosing this recipe I was done (clean up included!). The worst part was the thirty-minute wait for the ripple to be ready to eat!
Here is my end result of the recipe (inspired by all that Valentines love in the air from last week!). This is such a delicious and beautiful oh so simple sugar free way to get my beloved chocolate fix. A great thing about this recipe is the possibility for putting a personal touch to the mix. I decided to chuck in some blueberries alongside the raspberries and shredded coconut but I think that next time I'll get creative with some walnuts, pistachios and maybe even some fresh mint leaves. Or if wanting to make this for someone special you could even add a gorgeous touch with some rose petals!
You'll find the recipe on page 186 of the book or you can check it out online here.
