With antioxidant-rich pistachios and raspberries (also a great source of prebiotics) and coconut cream loaded with healthy fats, this is the perfect edible gift to say “thank you” for all the relationships in your life!

Ingredients:

Serves 4

• 2 ounces of coconut butter
• 14 fl oz additive-free coconut cream
• 2 tablespoons rosewater, optional (can be purchased or made, recipe below)
• pinch of Celtic sea salt
• 1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
• handful of raspberries
• handful of pistachio kernels, roughly chopped

Line a baking tray or baking sheet with baking paper. Melt the coconut butter in a bowl sitting over (but not touching) boiling water. Add the coconut cream, rosewater (if using), salt, and vanilla, and stir to combine. Pour onto the prepared tray and scatter over the raspberries and pistachios. Freeze for at least 30 minutes or until solid. Remove from the freezer and break into shards or chop into squares. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.

Rosewater

• 3 cups filtered water
• 3 large unsprayed roses, petals only, white bases removed
• 1/2 teaspoon lime juice

Prepare the rosewater the day before. In a heavy-based saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the rose petals and lime juice, then turn off the heat, cover, and allow to infuse overnight.
 The next day, strain the rosewater into a large jug. Discard the petals.
