This healthier version of rocky road looks and tastes incredible! It’s sweetened with natural Medjool dates, is refined-sugar free and full of good fats from the coconut oil, making it a satiating but decadent treat. Get creative with the additions too. Try anything from white mulberries, to goji berries, coconut and your favourite nuts and seeds.
