Who says a healthy dessert can’t be tasty? This dairy-free sweet-treat is light on naughty, but big on taste.
Young Coconut and Cashew Nut Ice Cream
You could be absolutely anywhere in the world, yet you feel totally disconnected from it … and boy, it’s nice! My enriching experience at The Farm begins before I arrive. Once my booking is confirmed, I receive an email asking me to complete a comprehensive health questionnaire to provide as much information as I can about my current state of health. I am also asked to advise what I would like to achieve in terms of my health and wellbeing during my stay. After I press the ‘submit’ button, I picture The Farm’s health and medical team getting to work devising my program, while I excitedly count down the sleeps until I board the plane to the Philippines and experience one of the most amazing health retreats on the planet.
Stop looking for a destination that suits everyone: families, couples, wellness warriors and the solo traveler…. Yes, it does exist… and I’ve found it! Just a short 25-minute drive south of Hua Hin (which is a great town for shopping and eating 230 kilometres southwest of Bangkok, and the oldest beach town of Thailand) there is a tiny squid-fishing village called Pranburi. And on the coastal outskirts of this village is THE DESTINATION for all.
This delicious eat-any-time dessert is simple to make, looks impressive and is actually loaded with goodness… not bad fats and sugar. Made with coconut butter, soaked cashews, dates, cacao, and berries, it’s full of good healthy fats, protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals, and…. wait for it…. flavour! My tip is to cut into small pieces and store in the freezer. When you need a sweet-but-healthy- snack…. Viola!
The ruby liquid fills the mouth, sliding over the teeth and tongue leaving a taste sensation at the back of the palate. Warm, spicy and liquorice-sweet, or cool, smooth and wholesomely fruity. Ahhhh, wine…the universal pleasure, the great communicator, the drink for any occasion.
