Dessert Freedom: Cookbook on a Mission

Dessert Freedom is a grain-free, vegan dessert cookbook on a mission. Think Tom Selleck, Magnum P.I. style.

It’s a lovingly crafted collection of 20 supreme dessert recipes (concepts that have never been on the blog) and 20 health-promoting techniques to help you embrace your allergies, conquer your cravings and liberate your dessert dilemma.

The recipes and techniques in Dessert Freedom are devised to help you:

  • Crush your sugar cravings
  • Fall in love with your food sensitivities, allergies and restrictions
  • Nourish yourself
  • Overcome your restrictions




Dessert Freedom is a 76-page, full-colour PDF digital/ebook, full of huge photos for each of the 20 recipes, clickable resource links and supreme techniques to help you enjoy many a guilt-free dessert. PDFs can be read on computers, iPads, iPhones, Kindles and Android devices.
