Nature’s Charm – Banoffee Tapioca Pudding

Difficulty: Easy - Medium Serves Four I'm a huge fan of coconut stuff and jackfruit stuff, so when Nature's Charm asked if I'd like to team up with them to create a series of recipes using their products I was like "hell yes!" Over the coming months I'm going to hit you with a few dope recipes to give you some #inspo for how to use your Nature's Charm products. I don't mess with tapioca pudding often, but when I was sent Nature's Charm Condensed Coconut Milk to try I just knew that's what I had to make with it!

Conversation Candy Hearts

Difficulty: Medium Makes about 200 depending on size   You might think Valentine's Day is a lame excuse for big companies to rake it in and for sappy lovers to buy each other ugly red satin pillows but I actually think it's kinda sweet. V Day is a good excuse to show your bitchin' pals how much you care about them and if your bitchin' pals are like mine, they like lollies. The dope thing about these guys is that you can personalise them however you want to and bring back my all time favourite candy heart slogan 'Fax Me', because that's what people used to do in the olden days to ask people on dates. If you're wondering where to pick up a...
