Tropical guava with nutty hemp and peppery basil seeds sweetened with dates and citrusy lemon; Guava Basil Dessert.

This recipe will burst any belief that vegan food can’t be simple to make.

Make this:

  • When you’ve got a dinner party and need a quick and easy dessert that’ll give you time back to focus on getting ready
  • When kiddies are running array round the house and giving them a treat will get them savouring on something lush and healthy
  • When it’s summery outside and a tropical dessert that’ll polish off the evening is just the treat

Guava Basil Dessert was inspired when hunting through a local specialty greengrocers and soft guava were lurking within; the thought of creating a dessert wasn’t far behind.

Guava is a tropical fruit native to Mexico, central America and West Indes. Rich in Vitamin B9, it aids fertility and is even a richer source of Vitamin C than oranges. The benefit of this raw dish means all the benefits of the non-heat resistant Vitamins are retained.

Love.
