I can remember exactly when my obsession for raw treats started. I was working as an online health editor at the time and my colleague asked if I’d tried avocado chocolate mousse before. I was like, “Ew, what’s that?” As it turns out, I found it pretty amazing… I even made a 5 minute version of it here and, because I love it so much, I’ve made a paleo cake version here.
I’ve come to realise that I have quite an obsession with raw cakes. Not only because I have a mean sweet tooth, but because raw cakes are like a cross between a traditional cheesecake and an ice-cream cake… so delicious but oh so healthy!
This emerald and ruby red raspberry delight is an anti-inflammatory, metabolism-boosting and antioxidant-rich liquid breakfast. Whip this up in less than 5 minutes and feel satisfied right up until lunchtime.
This is my super easy raw tropical tart that tastes just like mango ice-cream! Play around with your own quantities… you can’t go wrong!
Who needs to buy a chocolate milkshake, thickshake or ice-cream drink concoction when this healthy smoothie tastes SO MUCH better and it’s good for you (you’ll be satisfying your chocolate craving while sneaking in some veggie goodness thanks to the baby spinach. Plus, blending the chia seeds makes them more easily absorbed in the body).
