This event is available to everyone, and so far has been amazing to listen to.  We are into day three, and this event goes until Monday.  If you are interested in hearing real people talk about this lifestyle and their experiences, this is a great event to check out!

Raspberry Chocolate Ganache Fudge Cake

Raspberries

I recently made Ani Phyo’s Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake, and I have to share! It was SO yummy, and so easy to make, and best of all not full of refined sugars, so kinda healthy 🙂

 
Fudge Cake

  • 3 cups dry walnuts
  • 2⁄3 cup unsweetened cacao powder or carob powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates

Frosting

  • 1⁄3 cup semi-soft pitted Medjool dates
  • 1⁄4 cup agave syrup
  • 1⁄2 cup ripe avocado flesh (from about 1 medium avocado)
  • 1⁄3 cup cacao powder

Filling

  • 1⁄2 cup raspberries
  1. To make the cake, combine the walnuts, cacao powder and salt in the food processor and pulse until coarsely mixed.  Add the dates and pulse until mixed well. Shape into two  same sized cakes of desired shape and set aside.
  2. To make the frosting, combine the dates and agave syrup in the food processor and process until smooth. Add the avocado and process until smooth. Add the cacao powder and process until smooth.
  3. To serve, frost the top of one of the cakes with half the frosting and top with the raspberries. (I like to mashed the raspberries a bit).  Stack the second cake on top and frost the top and sides of the cake.
  4. Add some more raspberry’s on top if you like, to make it look even prettier.
  5. Serve immediately, or place in the refrigerator for a couple hours to firm up.

I divided the dough into six balls and made three mini cakes, which can be handed out as gifts, which is a nice healthy treat for the holidays.

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Almond Cookies

I have so much almond pulp building up from all the almond milk I have made in the last month, so I decided to make something with it, so why not make a delicious cookie.  Mmmmm…

These are so simple to make, and you do not need any equipment for this one, just a bowl to mix everything up in.  Almond flour or meal can be made using your left over dehydrated pulp from almond milk or by crushing up almonds in a food processor.  The mesquite powder gives this cookie a slightly caramel flavour, while the cacao nibs give it a bit of a crunch.

  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 4 tbsp of agave
  • 1/4 cup of cacao nibs
  • 2 tbsp of almond butter
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of mesquite powder
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla powder
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Shape cookies, by rolling into a ball, then flattening them slightly. 
  3. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes, so they can harden up.  Makes about 8-10 cookies.

Unfortunately my camera is broken so I wasn’t able to take an amazing picture for you, but come 2012, you just wait for the amazing photos that will be posted on this blog!

Hurraw!

Okay, so I have recently discovered the best lip balm EVER, and I have to share!!

I have been a lip balm connoisseur since the first time I went to the Body Shop in grade 6, and I feel like I have tried all lip balms out there.  I have found ones that I like, and others that made my lips chapped (?!), and now I have found my very fave.  It’s Hurraw!

Hurraw!

HURRAW!

Hurraw is a all natural organic vegan/raw lip balm company, which uses the finest ingredients in their products.  Their flavours are so much fun, I need to try them all 🙂  Right now I am using their cinnamon flavour, and have also ordered the lime, vanilla and chocolate! Yum! These lip balms glide on your lips like silk, you really don’t wanna stop the application it feels so good! lol Not only are their flavours fun and exciting, the tube is oval shape, which fits the lip better.

If you are looking for an all natural lip balm, or a nice stocking stuffer for x-mas, these will be a real treat for anyone’s lip!
