Almond Butter Caramels & Getting Fit For Free







Confession time: I have such a sweet tooth. My sensible brain tries to repress my sugar cravings while my indulgent brain battles for desserts. Since this happens fairly frequently, I love finding more nutritious recipes and alternatives for classic sweet treats that aren't quite to bad for the body or conscience. Throughout September Sweaty Betty has once again performed a fantastic "Get Fit For Free" Campaign; this time in the shape of Body By Simone. An energetic, intense dance and body weight workout.  (The last session is tonight, so see if you can gab yourself a last minute place at your closest boutique!)  Book Here

To accompany the 4 week class, dancer turned drop-dead-amazing-foodie-blogger- Naturally Sassy came up with 3 totally delicious plant based recipes that were easy to try at home, and just as satisfying and tasty as the traditional versions. This recipe is therefore perfect post workout for nourishing and energising yourself ready for the next one! Little indulgences are good for body, mind and soul after all. 

I tried it out to see for myself if it was worth recommending. It totally is, so if you fancy giving these a go, just follow the recipe I've popped in below. Thanks Saskia and Team SB!


Ingredients

1/3 cup almond butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup pure maple syrup, agave or raw honey
 
Method
 
1. Start by melting the coconut oil. Once melted, add the almond butter, natural sweetener of choice and vanilla extract. Mix until totally smooth.
 
2. Pour the mix into some some chocolate moulds (or ice cube moulds if you don’t have any) and leave in the freezer to set for about half an hour. Pop out and enjoy. (Store in the freezer to keep cold and firm!)
