Raw Coconut and Cherry Treats


  1. Place the cherries into a small saucepan and slowly heat, until they simmer for a few minutes. They will soften and become mushy. Allow to cool. Line a 7 inch square pan with baking paper.
  2. In a different sauce pan, slowly melt the coconut butter with the coconut oil. Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla.
  3. In a bowl add the desiccated coconut, pour the melted coconut mixture over the coconut and mix very well.
  4. Using 2/3 of this mixture spread it evenly over the base of the pan and press down firmly. (aprox 1 cup). With the remaining coconut mixture add the cooled cherries and mix well.
  5. Spread the cherry mixture evenly over the base layer and press down firmly. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. In a microwave or double boiler gently melt the chocolate.
  7. Once the slice is set, drizzle with the melted chocolate. Allow to set for another 15 minutes in the fridge.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. * Notes: You can buy coconut butter at healthfood shops or you can make your own in a high speed food processor. To make it you just need 200 grams of desiccated non sweetened coconut. Place it in the food processor and blend on high for aprox 10 minutes in total. You will need to do it in intervals and scrape down the sides as well as give your machine a rest. It will get very hot. The heat from the motor will help with coconut to process. You will know when you have the desired consistence of a thick butter. Make sure your chocolate is dark and has a high cocoa content.

Have used them about 3 months, feeling better!

The Happy Hormones totally stopped my night sweats and hot flushes during the day also, I have never experienced a product working so well. It took a couple of weeks so hang in there.

Happy Hormone customer

I have been using HH for about 14mths now and couldn't imagine not taking it daily. I also take HH with Happy Greens and have had great success with this product also. Nothing better than taking a natural product and knowing it works. Thank you

To capsule or powder, that is the question.

So many ladies ask that question on the facebook page and my advice is Powder for economy Capsules for travel. You cant go wrong with either. Love this product, when I am asked about it by friends who are going through menopause I say the same thing, I can deal with everything except lack of sleep and Happy Hormones has given me back my sleep. Which of course gives you back your life. Thank you.
