Coconut Bark with Rosewater, Pistachios and Raspberries

This coconut bark recipe is from Lee Holmes Supercharged Food cookbook, ‘Eat Right For Your Shape’. The book contains deliciously healthy Ayurvedic recipes for a brand new you.

In her book, Lee categorised this recipe as a treat best enjoyed in summer, and notes it to be particularly complimentary to Vatas and Pittas (you can find out which dosha you are at the start of the book). Also note, if you’re just after a quick and easy coconut bark recipe, you can actually skip making the rosewater from scratch.

  1. Well we’re not in summer anymore but I’m going to try making this for guests over the weekend because it looks delectable and I love bark recipes. Will report back!

  2. I am now OBSESSED with this coconut bark recipe after making it a few months ago. I used to make a popular coconut oil chocolate bark recipe, but this one is better. It melts in your mouth much nicer and sits better in my tummy. Thanks ladies x
