Raw Cacao Cake – a healthy sweet alternative

IMG_8646You won’t believe how great it tastes


Base: Combine 1 cup of hazelnuts and 1 cup of good quality dates in hot water for 30 minutes, then drain the water and mix the 2 ingredients with 2 tablespoons of Raw Cacao in a food processor, leaving some crunchy bits

Press the base into a base (it doesn’t get cooked, of course) and refrigerate.

Topping: Combine 2 good-size avocadoes with 1 – 2 tbsp of raw honey and 1-2 tbsp on raw cacao (I only combined it with a fork) and before spreading it onto the base, I put down a layer of organic frozen raspberries (defrosted). On top of it you can add whatever you like: I added more raspberries, blueberries and shredded coconut.

It kept in the fridge for several days.

The recipe didn’t ask for lemon, but I pressed the juice of one small lemon into the topping, which was nice.
