Guest recipe: raw vegan cake! »
Wow, raw vegan cake! Just in time for my roommate Ivory’s birthday! You may know Ivory as the woman from the “vegan myths debunked” video. This cake takes minutes to make and can be enjoyed on any occasion! Feature in this photo is a member of the Spinto Band, Thomas, who enjoyed the cake! He is currently recording with vegan Jonathan Mann, also of “vegan myths debunked” fame. Yay vegans. Yay raw vegan cake!
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
8 to 10 dates
2/3 cup raspberries
1 cup walnuts
Stevia to taste
Blend walnuts with Stevia in a food processor or high-powered blender. Mold into a pie dish or pan. Blend chia, water, dates, cacao, salt. More chia will make more of a pudding texture. Add to top of walnut crust. Place raspberries on top. Keep in fridge until ready to enjoy!
Vegan sushi, why what a delightful brunch! These little gems come from Pepper Tree in Houston, Texas, and I do believe a person could eat 50 of them in one sitting, they look so light and fresh and tasty. Now what would you drink at fruit-and-vegetable-sushi brunch: shōchū cocktails? Um, yes. OK, field trip to Houston!
