Frankston Foodie’s Unique Vegan Desserts
Hi, I’m Samantha – a passion foodie from Frankston, Victoria, gateway to the Mornington Peninsula.
I am a mental health nurse and a dietetic student who recently founded a vegan dessert business, currently specialising in truffles.
I have always wanted to do something like this, which has been my passion for a long time.
I am not a vegan, but I eat healthy as much as I can. I started making truffles because my husband has IBS and leaky gut syndrome, and he can’t eat much of anything available in the shops unless it’s homemade from scratch. As a result, it was so hard for us to go out and have a meal together due to his food intolerances.
My husband loves desserts. So, I decided to start making raw truffles for him. Then I started giving out to my family and friends, and that’s how I started my business.
Ever since my husband became a vegan lot of his food intolerances have started to disappear. He’s now enjoying my homemade raw vegan cheesecakes and truffles.
I am only doing truffles presently and my next project is to start making raw vegan slices. People can order through Facebook or send me an email: email@example.com.
My truffles currently sell for $3.00 each, and all are 100 % vegan and gluten-free. They have no refined sugar and no preservatives either!
Christmas Specials – Available Now!
Currently, I am offering variety packs for Christmas. A 15-variety pack is $45 and 10-variety pack is $30.
I cater to customers specific dietary needs so if you have any food allergy or food intolerances please let me know.

Finding My True Passion
After 5 years working for a Fortune Global 500 Corporation in the Oil & Gas industry, I had a chance to take a pause in my career after the birth of my first child, and at the same time to figure out my true passion.
I realized my passion now is all about fostering a better environment for my children to grow and being a role model to show them what’s possible in life. Now I’m working in the Higher Education Sector in Australia, and at the same time carrying on my own international business with Arbonne.
Arbonne is a highly respectable network marketing company striving for providing not only PURE, SAFE & BENEFICIAL cosmetics and nutrition products, but also life-changing opportunities to everyone who wants to live their dream life.

The idea to provide skincare products that are unparalleled in quality and effectiveness was developed in Switzerland in 1975, when one man, Petter Mørck, together with a group of leading biochemists, biologists and herbalists, set out to fulfill his vision and founded Arbonne.
Arbonne skincare products, based on botanical principles, came to fruition in the United States in 1980 and are now shared throughout the world by a growing network of Arbonne Independent Consultants. Building on these same founding principles, the product line has since grown to include both inner and outer health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits, and results.
The wonderful thing about Arbonne is that it’s not just about great products — it’s also about great people. The Arbonne family is made up of thousands of individuals working to make their dreams come true. Through sales incentives and rewards, travel opportunities, a competitive SuccessPlan and great products, Arbonne offers a unique opportunity that can help make anyone’s vision for the future a reality.
At Arbonne, we have been on a green journey for 37 years and always will be.
Arbonne is Proud to be Cruelty-free
Cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals, including testing. Products tested on animals are not considered cruelty-free, since these tests are often painful and cause the suffering of millions of animals every year.
Arbonne is Carbon Neutral
Carbon neutrality refers to achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing a measured amount of carbon that’s released with an equivalent amount that’s offset or buying enough carbon credits to make up the difference.
People, Planet, Products
It is a core part of Arbonne’s mission to continue to evolve our sustainability commitment.
We are dedicated to helping create a more sustainable future and making a positive difference and leaving a lighter footprint on the planet.
Arbonne is nearing Zero Waste
Zero Waste is the practice of emulating sustainable natural cycles, where all discarded materials are designed to become resources for others to use. It means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.
Our green commitment accomplishments:
- Vegan certified
- Cruelty-free formulas
- Soy inks, FSC-certified renewable resources
- Recyclable product packaging
- Recycled and recyclable shipping boxes
- Carbon neutral shipments
- Water conservation
Our Sustainable Path Ahead:
Arbonne became a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in 2016 to further demonstrate our commitment to sourcing sustainable palm oil. Also, we are sourcing and incorporating other, more sustainable ingredients (for example, the incorporation of sustainable shea butter) and other ongoing efforts.
Arbonne has offset its emissions in the volumes required to achieve Carbon Neutrality in December of 2016 and continues to do so primarily via:
- Amazon Rainforest offset projects in Peru that protect key ingredients like Brazil nuts, which are produced in the area where the project is based and directly help prevent the devastating effects of deforestation and land degradation.
- Additional vital ingredients such as palm, cocoa and other crops are also produced in the wider region where the project is located and Arbonne continues to support an initiative that protects the sustainability of ingredients that are aligned with key ingredients we formulate with.
- Additionally, this is a program that includes tangible social sustainability benefits for regional inhabitants via education about the risk of deforestation and the positive impact of sustainably harvested ingredients. It also provides legitimate sources of work to forest-dependent communities and their families.
In addition to recycling more waste and diverting it from landfills on the back end of our operations, Arbonne is making progress toward reducing emissions on the front end, too, including minimizing packaging, incorporating more sustainable packaging and reducing the amount of waste we produced, to begin with.
The company goal of 90% reduction in waste sent to landfills and incinerators is considered an achievable goal by Zero Waste-focused organizations. Each incremental step toward becoming a Zero Waste company requires systematic changes, improvements, and collaboration. Most importantly, Arbonne is committed to continued progress toward reducing and recycling waste.
