WOWA… WHAT A LUNCH / LAUNCH!


An exclusive cooking class with the v-v-inspiring Teresa Cutter {The Healthy Chef} thanks to Blackmores : )

I created my own salad; watched Teresa make the the most wicked {healthy} chocolate cake with avocado {in the} icing… yes, avocado; and got a brand new product {that sounds amazing} to try! A healthy, heavenly day!! And now what you’ve been waiting for… the recipe:

Teresa’s Raw Chocolate Cake
CHOC-CAKE-down-size-652x9781

what-you-need:
Cake
500g walnuts
3 heaped tablespoons raw cocoa powder or Naked Chocolate
2 heaped tablespoons healthy chef chocolate WPI or organic chocolate maca
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
22 pitted fresh dates
zest from 1 orange + a little juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate frosting
2 ripe avocados, skin and stone removed
6 fresh pitted dates
1/2 cup water or almond milk
1/2 cup Naked Chocolat Dark or raw cacao powder
1/4 cup cold pressed coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
Pinch of sea salt

what-you-do:
* Combine walnuts, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt.
* Process until ground, but not too fine.
* Add dates, orange zest and vanilla.
* Process again. Test and see if the cake starts to come together when pressed, if not add the juice of 1/2-1 orange then process again.
* Press cake into a 15cm small round baking tin – spring form is best. I normally line the cake tin with baking paper first so I can easily remove the cake afterward.
* You don’t bake this chocolate cake. Just place into the fridge for at least 2 hours to chill and set.
* Remove from the tin.
* Combine chocolate frosting together in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy.
* Spread over the cake.
* Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Beyond amazing! : )
