Local x Local: Yusra Al Rifai Talks About Living Life Sugar-Free

It’s 2021 and desserts do not have to taste bad if they’re free of all the processed ingredients and know and love (for some unhealthy reason). There is a whole world of substitutes out there that can help us sweet-toothed-folk live our best lives!

On this week’s episode, we sat down with Yusra Al Rifai, owner of Rawkme to talk about her delicious dessert creations

Gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free dessert creations, that is. Yusra moved to Bahrain from the UK back in 2011 as an interior stylist, and decided to pursue baking as a full time career. The result? Delicious, guilt-free desserts.

It’s all about the ingredients

Yusra makes sure that every single ingredient she uses is the freshest and is as close to nature as possible. That means, top quality always. A common ingredient you’ll find to sweeten her desserts: dates! Doesn’t get any more natural that that – aren’t we the land of 1 million palm trees…?

Yusra’s goal is for Rawkme to pave the way of a healthier lifestyle for everyone, without compromising on quality or taste. Sounds impossible at first… but clearly, not if you set your mind to it!!
