There are 4 different types of mask in the collection & and I’m gonna explain why you need them in your life.
Now brownies in my house always go down well, mainly because 1 they’re really quick to make, and 2 because they taste absolutely delicious. Don’t mean to brag haha.

Ready for this yummy recipe?

Halloween Sweet Treats
With Halloween coming up I was thinking it would be a wonderful idea to create some delicious and tasty vegan alternatives to what is in the stores. There is so much variety out there, but sometimes you like a little more control over what you’re eating, and if you’re having a Halloween party then these recipes will be perfect!
A Chocolate Extravaganza
This is how my delicious vegan chocolate bark came out, want to know I made this thing of absolute beauty? Well, of course you do, so shall we get started?
- 2 cups vegan chocolate (make sure you’re able to melt it! )
- 1/4 cup Cacao Powder from The Raw Chocolate Company
- 1 cup of your favourite sweet treats
When I first transitioned to vegan I fell in love with the Great Food Company, I know that might sound silly, but I absolutely adored everything that they had, I’d buy it all of the time, and when I saw that they were at the Just V Show, I of course had to stop buy and make a purchase, I mean it was the law.
about the company
The Great Food Company are 100% vegan & gluten free, they offer a wide variety of products from falafel (I am addicted) to veg cakes, to dips, to koftas, these are all incredible products that will fit right into your diet for fabulous food that is healthy and tastes absolutely fabulous. Do you know the best bit? When you’re trying to eat healthy, sometimes you don’t feel full, but with these fabulous foods, I’ve found that I feel full all of the time, I can last until it is dinner time!
just v show find
This fabulous chocolate is something very new, it tastes absolutely amazing, I have sometimes struggled with the taste and the difference between non vegan chocolate and vegan chocolate, I am getting used to it, but this one, you’d never know the difference, it is light, creamy, and delicious, the kind of chocolate that is dangerous like you have a square, and then you want more, and then you want more.
a little info about the product
Lots Of This, None Of That is a fabulous dairy free ‘milky’ chocolate bar, and what Plamil Foods have done with this product is reduced the amount of sugar that is in the product, but also made it so it is gluten and nut free. Another fabulous thing about the chocolate is that is is 30g and the amount of sugar that is in this product is still less than 20g of a similar product.
I have had the other ranges before and I have found that there is so much variety which is another reason why I love their chocolate. Lots Of This None Of That is very similar to the other ranges, there are 8 fabulous chunks of heaven which mean they’re perfect for snaking, or even sharing a little with smaller hands i.e your children, not much but a little and you won’t have to worry too much about there being lots and lots of sugar in them.
As most people will know I am currently working with Sativa Shakes, and I am working on posting some new recipes for them by using their protein powder. That review will be coming on Saturday with the down low on the 2 fabulous flavours I received, however instead I’ve been playing around with different combinations, and this has to be one of my favourites.
Hey presto, here is one I made earlier. I basically use a very basic vegan muffin recipe which can make it a little easier, because then you can adapt the recipe the way you want it to, depending on the different combinations.
- 192g/ 1½ cups of flour (I used plain flour)
- 110g/ ½ a cup of brown sugar
- ½ a teaspoon of salt
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 175ml / ¾ cup of milk, I used almond milk but you can use any vegan milk you would like, oat milk would go perfectly
- 60ml/ ¼ of coconut oil melted
- 1 ¼ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup/130g of frozen raspberries
- 30g of Sativa Shakes Chocolate and Caramel protein powder (Optional)
