Does it feel like Christmas was only just last week? I can’t believe Easter is here already. This year is flying by! How is 2015 treating you so far?
I’ve had a productive week sprucing up things around here. Virtual spring cleaning, you could say. Firstly, I now have a logo for Vie De La Vegan!
I am so pleased with it! I had a lovely freelance graphic designer create it for me over on Elance.
Secondly, I have released a FREE mini ebook with delicious chocolate recipes! If you subscribe to my newsletter you get access to this ebook instantly. Which is handy as Easter is in a week now, so if you are looking for healthy, refined-sugar-free, mostly raw, all vegan chocolate recipes – LOOK NO FURTHER THAN MY FREE EBOOK! I am so excited about these chocolate recipes – my husband (junk food extraordinaire) now eats these instead of lollies or chocolate from the confectionery aisle. They taste sinful, but the ingredients are angelic ;)
Thirdly, I’m working on a vegan clean-eating program. This is still in the early stages but I’ll soon be looking for recipe testers. I’m really excited to be creating this clean-eating program, as many of the other clean-eating programs out there just don’t cater to vegans (or the vegan options are pretty dismal). More about this during the week though…
Now onto these vegan “milk” chocolate Easter eggs! I love making healthier chocolates at home, so it’s no surprise that I make a few vegan Easter eggs for my children at Easter time too. I used to make dark chocolate eggs but they were too rich for my kids, and I’d end up eating most of them (not that I can complain about that!).
But these Easter eggs are creamy and not so bitter and rich. My children love these! They were lucky they even got to sample them before Easter ;)
This year I am making an Easter hunt for my children (as I have done most years) but I don’t like hiding a bunch of Easter eggs for them. Mainly because they will melt by the time they are found, and also, my kids don’t need to be overloaded with chocolate (no matter how healthy it is!).
Here are some Easter “treasures” I have hidden (or will be hiding this year) on our hunts:
- Easter themed stickers
- Little notebooks and crayons/pencils
- Easter crafts (I picked up a few cheap Easter craft kits after Easter last year!)
- “Charlie & The Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl
- Dinosaur fossil eggs
What are your plans for Easter this year? Do you like making Easter hunts for your kids?
- 4 medjool dates, pitted
- 4 tbs coconut oil, melted
- 3 tbs coconut cream
- 5 tbs cacao powder
- Blend all ingredients until smooth.
- Pour into silicone Easter egg molds.
- Freeze for 30 minutes or until set.
- Store in the fridge or the freezer.
