Those who know me would say that I’m a little short on patience. I want to get things done fast, I move fast and I eat fast. It’s something I’m working on – I have to consciously remind myself that there’s no rush to do things.
My lack of patience is also probably why I tend to make things that are either low on fuss, done in a relatively short amount of time, or with few ingredients – which is why this three-ingredient recipe instantly caught my eye. Yep, you read that right: three ingredients! It’s as easy as making a cup of tea. Seriously.
It was a baking kind of weekend last week and instead of making another raw cake or something chocolatey (which I often tend to do), the Sydney winter chill called for something nourishing and baked.
This banoffee pie is creamy and absolutely heavenly. The traditional banoffee pie is full of refined sugar and contains dairy, this recipe is refined sugar free, gluten free and vegan.
If there’s one thing I love about healthy food, it’s being able to recreate naughty desserts with raw, wholefood, delicious ingredients.
Some of my faves include The Farm‘s Healthy Chocolate Ice-Cream, 5-Minute Choc Avocado Mousse and my Very Chocolately “Cherry Ripe” Smoothie. You wouldn’t really want to go back to the regular versions of these treats because they’re all dairy-free, refined sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan, which means you’re more likely to feel satiated and energised, rather than having to go through a sugar roller-coaster.
