Gift a friend, or yourself delicious, raw vegan treats, cake and more.


These edible works of art are all handmade by Dr Joanna Helcke, a health enthusiast and specialist in pregnancy and postnatal fitness. She’s been helping mums all over Leicestershire for the past 12 years and recently branched out her, already very successful business, by creating healthy, raw, vegan food and so zestEAT was born.

Pretty as a picture her Letterbox Treats are available as a one-off box or as an ongoing subscription. They include velvety soft vegan truffles, fruity nutty chocolate and even Joanna’s own take on the healthier, vegan version of ‘After Eights’ featuring raw, natural mint chocolate fudge. Tempting – right?

Joanna also offers a weekend, vegan takeout menu (that’s had rave reviews from customers) as well as delicious, raw vegan cakes and brownies with all the gooeyness you’d expect, but none of the nasties – all available for collection.

All her food is made using natural ingredients such as cacao, therapeutic grade essential oils, nuts, superfoods and no refined sugar. The raw ingredients helps preserve nutrients making for healthier treats, so you can enjoy them guilt-free plus, all packaging she uses is 100% recyclable with no plastic used, so it’s great for the environment too.
