@Marinakristensensah has a real talent for using chocolate alongside the best in seasonal produce and making it look so beautiful at the same time. Today's recipe features a combination of our chocolate, with yummy green veg, pumpkin seeds and kaki-sharon fruit.
Kaki-Sharon Fruit (from the persimmon tree) are actually one of the oldest known fruits and have been quoted as being amongst the fastest-selling exotic fruit in the UK. Persimmons are high in beta carotine and minerals such as sodium, magnesium, calcium and iron, and research has shown they contain twice as much dietary fibre per 100g as apples, plus vital compounds thought to ward off heart disease. Vegan, gluten-free and suuuuper healthy. What's not to love?
