Healthy Vegan Rocky Road


A healthier take on delicious Rocky Road complete with crunch, chewiness and nutty decadence. Without the extra sugar, dairy- and gluten-free, and vegan friendly.

This healthier version of Rocky Road is the ultimate indulgence. Sweetened naturally with dried fruits, lots of textural crunch with puffed rice, healthy fats from coconut and nuts, and a flavorsome kick from the chewy glazé ginger.

Don’t like the combo? No problem. Sub in or add in different nuts and dried fruit. Get creative – you could try some dried blueberries, chopped dates, cashews, dried mulberries, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, acai powder, and even add some protein powder! 😉
