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.

I was worried about joining a yoga class as I see myself as a tight, stiff person. I had had bad experiences of classes before that were too fast and not well explained and they had left me feeling I’d ‘failed’. Zena’s classes are completely different – they are calm and mindful and each new pose is well explained. We are given the space to work at our own pace and the time to take something personal from each pose. My body is still pretty tight, but I love the yoga classes and at each lesson appreciate what I am able to do with the right encouragement. Zena creates a very productive and calm atmosphere, where I feel I am free to do what works for me without having to be in competition with others.
