How is everyone’s Sunday going?
Ours started with some fresh grapefruit juice mixed with some coconut water and spirulina and stevia. I know it may sound weird but it was actually really good.
Later we enjoyed our green smoothie before we went for our run today.
Filled with mint, parsley, ginger, water, chia seeds, and papaya drizzled with yacon syrup
Well we are finally starting to get our workout groove back. It turned out to be a beautiful day here in south Florida so we took advantage of getting our Vitamin D
- 4 mile run outside
Both felt great, so happy to get a good workout in finally!
So as promised we are going to share one our favorite raw desserts.
Raw Cheesecakes or as we call it Cream Cakes
This recipe might sound daunting, but it is so easy and delicious.
1 cup pecans, unsoaked
1/3 cup, medjool dates (pitted), roughly chopped
1 cups coconut flakes
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
Place all ingredients into food processor.
Pulse till combined, it will be light and fluffy.
Press into bottom of pan. We used a 8in spring board pan.
First line bottom of pan with parchment or wax paper
1 1/2 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup agave
1/2 cup water
pinch sea salt (optional)
1 tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup cacao powder (raw chocolate powder)
Place cashew butter, agave, water, sea salt and vanilla to blender. Blend till smooth.
Add in the coconut oil and blend.
Then end with cacao powder.
Blend till combined.
Pour into pan on top of crust, we sprinkled some cacao nibs (optional), you may use chocolate chips if you want.
Then place in freezer…that is it. No baking required. : )
Pull from freezer and let come to room temperature for about 20-30 minutes.
Slice and enjoy : )
Keep remaining slices, if any, in the freezer!!
Everyone loved it!!!!
Loved that it was not too sweet.
Texture was perfect.
Easy on the tummy to digest.
Full of antioxidants and vitamins (gotta love chocolate)
One of the healthiest cheesecakes you could ever have!!! See you can still eat healthy and enjoy desserts too with no guilt!!
Hope everyone has a great evening. Ours will be filled with lots of desserts : )
TIll next time,
