Raw Halva

Most of us love sweet treats.  The problem with most sweet treats is that they are full of acidifying and toxic ingredients that suppress natural energy and immunity, as well as piling on the pounds.  Unfortunately, even knowing how bad these foods are for us doesn’t stop us craving them, and giving into these cravings provides the perfect opportunity to beat ourselves up about our ‘bad’ food choices and how weak-willed we are.   And this is were raw comes to the rescue!

Are you addicted to sugar?

A refined sugar addiction, often combined with a wheat addiction, is hard to kick.  The way to beat it is to have healthy alternatives, like today’s Halva recipe.  I love halva!  I used to eat the cooked version a lot (usually full of refined sugar!), but luckily for me I LOVE this raw version even more.  It’s sooo simple, literally 3 ingredients, and it really hits the spot when you’re craving something sweet.  You can keep it in your freezer for when you need a little sweet pick-me-up.  Kids and adults both love this halva, so a it’s a winner all round.

It’s so easy!

Watch how easy it is to make in this week’s video, put the ingredients on your shopping list and make it this weekend!

    Saskia – I am not only impressed with the Halva recipe, but (almost more so) the fact that you made them wearing a WHITE top! Nothing could emphasise how easy the recipe is better than THAT, in my opinion!

    I’d also like to thank you for the videos. Although I have your wonderful recipe book (which has this recipe) I don’t think I would actually have chosen to make it before seeing the video. They REALLY show how easy your recipes are and it just gives me a bit of much-needed confidence to know that I can watch the video before actually tackling the recipe.

      Hi Susan. I can’t tell you how pleased I am that you are finding the videos so useful! I’m working my way through the Raw Freedom book, so eventually there will be a recipe video for each recipe 🙂 x
