Mega Mango and Turmeric Cheesecake

So I made this on the last retreat and it was possibly the most awesome desert EVER! I thought I had invited it but a quick search of the interweb reveals many others have had a similar moment of genesis. So here is a recipe that is a lot like mine only with measurements that…

Zingy ZOOM Bliss Balls

I was recently running a retreat in the New Forest and I like to treat my fellow yogis to a few treats, of the non-bending kind every so often. This is the offering that went down with a bang. Makes lots (enough for 18 people to have one each) 2 large carrots 250grams Almonds fine…
