Tip

Rolled oats can be substituted for pumpkin seeds in the Cinnamon crunch.

 

For a simpler dessert, the lychee granite is sensational on its own!

The Cinnamon Crunch is amazing sprinkled over yoghurt for a healthy breakfast or snack.

 

Pour the Chocolate Mint Ganache over ice-cream for a decadent dessert or use it to ice your favourite chocolate cake.
