These vegan treats are great for little ones and adults alike. Yum! I love making these rockmelons for my girls with Coyo, maple-toasted granola, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut shreds, raspberries and a drizzle of maple.

Since switching to a vegan lifestyle, I’m calmer, my absent periods came back (no more #PCOS), I’m fitter and more energised, and my skin is clear.
