Vegan and Delicious Chocolate Ganache Tart by Niki Angelopoulos from Alkaline Superfoods. Rich, creamy and better than any other chocolate tart you will ever have!

Chocolate Ganache Tart

This rich, smooth and creamy and crumbly Chocolate Tart is the perfect way to finish up a dinner party, any celebration or have just devour into because it's that good! It is all plant based and full of the richest chocolate flavour!

It is super simple to make and can be made ahead of time. You can decorate and garnish as you wish, but you can't go past the perfect pairing of chocolate and berries with a hint of peppermint.

I have made this a few times and it is always a hit. I have explored a few flavours, but I am and always have been a dedicated Peppermint fan so it is hands down my favourite. I infuse the flavour using the Young Living Essential oils, The Best Essential oils on the planet!

10 Day Juice Cleanse - Day 6

10 Day Juice Cleanse - Day 6

Day 6 on our juice cleanse and we are going strong on Green Alkaline fuel. No cravings in sight and we have adapted to the routine of juice and water easily. This is the best feeling, sleeping more peacefully and noticing no eye-strain or tension headaches anymore after using the computer or driving. 

Each day is getting better and better and things feel clearer. Today I also noticed a transformation in my digestion and how quickly my body is taking up the nutrients from the juice. Any 'hunger' is quickly dissipated by some juice.
