What is something new that you recommend us trying in the kitchen that many of us might not think of?
Rice flakes! Perfect for easy, quick and super sticky rice pudding! It only takes 15 minutes!
The magic of coconut oil:
It is pretty much the most magical thing on earth. I use it for bulletproof coffee, roasting veggies or raw vegan treats, or for my skin and hair! Since I started using coconut oil, my skin is so much better and my hair gets softer, more voluminous, bouncier and longer. IT’S MAGIC!
What does wellness mean to you?
Meditation, yoga, love and food for body and soul.
What truth do you know for sure?
Whole foods are the best medicine and better when shared with the ones you love.
Aquafaba! It’s a great egg white replacement and my secret ingredient in my super fluffy chocolate mousse.
Raw Raspberry Cheesecake
70 g dried soft apricots
40 g shredded coconut
70 g almonds
Coconut oil for baking form
230 g cashews (soaked for at least 8 hours)
200 g coconut cream
50 g coconut oil
60 g sweetener (such as agave nectar)
Pinch of salt
¼ tsp vanilla
200 g fresh or frozen raspberries, plus more for topping
Lightly grease an 18 cm round springform tin with coconut oil and line the base with baking paper. For the crust, place almonds, shredded coconut and dried soft apricots in a food processor and mix until you get the texture of crumbs. Press the mixture into the base of your baking form and pop into the freezer while you prepare the filling. For the filling, blend soaked cashews, coconut cream, coconut oil, sweetener, pinch of salt and vanilla at high speed until smooth (about 10-20 minutes). Pour half of the mixture on top of the crust and place it in the freezer for 30-40 minutes. Meanwhile, place the raspberries in the other half of the cream and blend until smooth. Pour it on top of the cheesecake layer and return to the freezer for 45 minutes. Serve with fresh raspberries.
