Basics of Raw/ Sweet

Spicy Green Smoothie Bowl

I haven´t found better way how to break fast. Either if it´s just directly after I wake up or after intermittent fasting, this smoothie bowl works wonders for me! And if I add my Hazelnutt Chocolate Buckwheat Granola, haleluuuuyaaaah, I´m in heaven! ;D But, maybe I´m the only one who goes this far with spiciness ;D. Cause there´s a proper mix of hot hot hot ingredients. So this one is for sure not for everyone, I´m pretty aware of that :D. So if you are not a fan of chilli, kurkuma&pepper in the smoothies (actually, who really is? :D) you can just drop that and leave it only with ginger, aaand that´s pretty safe I guess ;).

But why I actually incorporated more spices into my meals is, and now the girly talk, it´s supposed to boost your metabolism. And who doesn´t wanna boost their metabolism, right ;D. So especially after you are fasting and you are lowering down the pace of it, this comes pretty handy ;). So cheers and give it a try!

What I also love about this smoothie is it´s exotic taste. And that´s because of the combination of kardamon, kurkuma and ginger. So if you are into asian, indian cousine and spices, this could suit you :).

Chocolate Peppermint Mousse

Another day, another raw vegan chocolate recipe! ;D Well. We love chocolate, don´t we? I love basic recipes, cause it shows people that they don´t need to go crazy with equipment and ingredients. You can leave this totally plain or add different ess. oil. What I can deffinitelly recommend is orange essential oil. In combination with chocolate it´s totally devine!

For this recipe you just need a mixer. And it can be the basic one. I also love this recipe cause it´s super quick and it can be easily made just for 4 people or for 30 in a few minutes. So if you are home cook hosting dinner party or chef in a busy restaurant or hotel, you can all benefit from this easy deliciousness!

When I say basic, it´s really basic. There are so many variations and how to make chocolate mousse. Avocado-raw cacao-coconut oil and agave is also an option. Some people like to use aquafaba = legumes tinned water. Well. Your mousse, your choice ;D. But I would say that for people with liquid sugar sensitivity – dates are gonna be good option. But! I like it really sweet, so if you will make it and you will be like: „Wooooah, what is this!“ ;D (it can happen, I´m a sweet girl!) – Next time use avocado instead of part of dates. Or you can still fix it with adding more water and avocado (and cacao if needed). It needs to be creamy and fluffy, not watery, not super stiff. Perfectly in balance.

If you would like to go all-in, use few decagrams of both melted cacao butter and 100% chocolate. I would say, 20-30g of each plus a bit more water. It´s gonna taste like chocolate truffles!
