I love tahini, it reminds me of my childhood…breakfast time to be precise. I mixed it with date syrup and spread it on my toast…so yummy! actaully I still do that now. Try it, its very good.

Tahini is a paste made from grounded sesame seeds and it’s one of the best sources of calcium – it truly is a super food.

These tahini fudge slices are a great way to get extra calcium in your diet, if you don’t like eating a teaspoon from the jar, as I do!

You’ll need:

  • Blender
  • Moulds or lined square tin
  • Measuring cups
  • small pan to melt the oil and cream
  • bowl 

Makes 12-16 slices

Ingredients 

  • 1/2 cup coconut cream (the block cream not runny stuff in the tin)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tbsp organic honey
  • 1 tbsp maca powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of pink salt
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil 
  1. Melt the coconut cream over a bain-marie, make sure you do this first since it takes 20 odd minutes to breakdown the large block cream.
  2. Then add the coconut oil to a small pan over a very low heat. This will not take very long so watch over it since you don’t want it to get hot.  
  3. Then pop all the ingredients in to a blender or food processor and pulse until it becomes a creamy paste.
  4. Pour in to the moulds or a lined loaf tin and place in the freezer for a few hours to set. 

I keep mine in the freezer and have them when I fancy since it only takes 2/3 mins until its good to eat.

Satya Yoga was established in London in 2003 by Zena Kidd-May, who taught yoga to private individuals at her London studio for several years.

In this hectic life we all lead, it is easy to live entirely in our heads, but attending Zena's classes over the last couple of years has enabled me to reconnect mind and body. Zena beautifully demonstrates how to move through the poses, whilst keeping an expert eye on us, to maximise what her students receive in each pose. I feel as strong and fit and as connected with my body and its possibilities as I have ever done in my life, and have always felt in such capable and knowledgable hands at Satya Yoga. The guided relaxation at the end of each class is wonderfully restorative, as are Zena's homemade nutritional treats, allowing us to leave class feeling thoroughly nurtured both inside and out! I enjoy Zena's classes so much I have gone from attending one to two a week.
