Raw Raspberry Chocolate Delights

These small raw chocolate delights are so delicious that I take no responsibility of you eating more than one. I still have an abundance of raspberries in the garden and as I was in the patch the other day having a sweet snack the idea of putting one raspberry in the centre of raw chocolate came to me.  I picked a big handful and into the kitchen I went.  

Raspberry Raw Chocolate Delights
Write a review
  1. 4 cups Shredded organic coconut
  2. 1/2 Raw cacao butter (optional)
  3. 2-3 tbsp raw cacao (depending on our rich you like your raw chocolate)
  4. 2 tbsp raw organic honey
  5. 1 cup fresh Raspberries
  1. In a blender (I used my Breville) process the coconut until it turns into butter. This can take between 5-10 minutes, depending on the power of your food processor. Whilst the coconut is blending add in the raw cacao butter and combine both the shredded coconut and the butter well
  2. You will need to stop and push the sides down
  3. Once you have a smooth butter, add in the honey and also the raw cacao and combine well.
  4. You will need a small muffin tin or small muffin cups. If you're using a tin, line each hole with baking paper which comes up the sides of the tin.
  5. In each hole or each muffin cup add in mixture to only cover half. Smooth over.
  6. Add in one fresh raspberry and slightly squash it, so it covers the centre. Cover the raspberry with more mixture to the top of your case. Smooth over.
  7. Store in freezer until firm
  8. Enjoy
  1. You could add gojo berries, dates, or any other type of fresh berry. The raw cacao butter is optional. I love adding it in as it gives it a bit more richness. You can find it at your local health food store.

Burn Body Fat and Feel Great with Jo's (1)

Not Your Typical Cardio Workout – Build Strength, Burn Body Fat and Feel Great

I remember the days when I was pounding the treadmill for an hour a day and counting down the time I had left. Or I would jump on the cross trainer and count down every minute of the exercise.  It was a real struggle for me to enjoy cardio.  Now I love my cardio because it is short, effective and each session is different. I always walk out of my cardio session feeling super pumped and happy.  No more dreading the hour workouts.

So if you want to build strength, burn body fat and feel super amazing give my cardio session a go.  Swap it out for the cross trainer or the treadmill and watch your body shape transform.

Download the app Tabata Pro from the app store.
Work hard for 20 seconds with each exercsie and after the buzzer has gone off, move straight onto the next exercise.
Once you have completed one round (5 exercises) rest for 1 minute before completing the next round.
Beginners start with 3 rounds.  Experienced – aim between 5-10 rounds

The movements
Squat Press – you can do this with a medicine ball, dumbells, barbell or if you have two heavy items at home that you can lift, you can use that.

Jump squats – Beginners you can squat and as you stand up reach high with a small jump.
Experienced – squat down and jump as high as you can go

Body weight rows – You can use dumbells, barbells or two heavy items you have at home.

Pushups – Beginners start on Knees.  Experienced – toes.

Step ups – Beginners start with a step that is slightly higher than a normal step.  Experienced – aim for a knee high step.  Weights to be used.


3 rounds for beginners
5 rounds for experienced

Please use google images to see how to do each exercise.

Squat Press

Have fun with your new way of doing cardio.

Living Healthy and Happy – That Sugar Film Giveaway

Are you ready for our  Living Healthy and Happy Autumn giveaway? On Tuesday 10th March I will be drawing the winner of this amazing prize.

THAT SUGAR FILM is touring Australia at the moment and it is one film that everyone will benefit from seeing. Hidden sugars are everywhere and if we can educate ourselves where they’re hidden we can start to question if this food will benefit us or not. Taking refined sugars out of your diet is a HUGE positive step into taking control of your health and wellbeing.  You will feel amazing, you will start to lose those unwanted kilos and you will see so many other great benefits.

THAT SUGAR FILM is one man’s journey to discover the bitter truth about sugar. Damon Gameau embarks on a unique experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Through this entertaining and informative journey, Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves. THAT SUGAR FILM will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food.
