Easter 2.0, with a Sweet Twist

Who doesn’t love Easter, April, the cooler autumn days and some family time, with a few Easter egg hunts thrown in for good measure?  What we love even more is adding a healthy twist to this annual tradition. With so many unhealthy and unnatural ingredients in sweet treats these days, you’ll definitely appreciate being able to indulge with less guilt.

We’ve rounded up some top HEALTHY Easter treats across the country because we all need some sweetness in our lives. 


With so many healthy eating options across the country, it’s easier (and much tastier!) nowadays to maintain that healthy lifestyle whilst still enjoying sweet treats. It’s also the perfect opportunity to teach your children that eating healthy treats is fun and filled with benefits. Or skip that part and watch them eat it without even realizing as most of these treats are THAT good…


Artisanal Bean to Bar chocolate company, Honest Chocolate, a Chocolate Café based in Cape Town, prides itself on creating quality organically produced ingredients and offers mouthwatering, premium coffees and treats. One of their specialities is the delicious Banana Bread Bunny Chow. All their produce is conveniently available as a takeaway as well.
