Coconut Rough was one of my favourite sweet treats when I was younger – so I just had to make you guys a healthy version! Coconut is incredible for hair growth and strength, increasing your skin’s natural glow, reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol as well as encouraging proper digestion and a speedy metabolism! Talk about a nutritional powerhouse! This satiating yet decadent treat is refined sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free – perfect for a healthy indulgence on your day off!
