Easy DIY Rocky Road

ROCKY-ROAD-3

 

Who doesn’t love Rocky Road? But what we don’t love is all the refined sugar that lurks beneath its delicious surface. But fear not, because we dreamed and schemed up a way you can have your Rocky Road, and eat it too! Say hello to our easy DIY Rocky Road, that will be a sure-fire crowd favourite, wherever (and IF ever) you choose to share it. Nourishing your body isn’t about deprivation, it’s just about creative adaptation and we’ve replaced the marshmellow, jelly and milk chocolate with dried cranberries, cacao and coconut oil to seriously up its nutrient quota.
