It seems to me like the year 2013 was the year of vegan & raw cheese cakes. I must admit, they do look yummy. But I like a bit of fruit to go with them, so I started experimenting. The first creations that I did need a bit more fine tuning before I can share them here with you.
But on Christmas Day it happened: after receiving a box of fresh cherries from a friend I tried to make a cake using them. I worked with the Personal Blender and didn’t blend all the cherries at once, since they simply wouldn’t fit. But then I had the idea to leave the other half of the cherries as they were. This created an amazing effect, as you have some real fruit to chew on. It just turned out amazing! Everything was perfect: size of cake and the amount of fruit and coconut oil. And the vanilla cashew cream topping suited so perfectly!
Last winter I planted some brussel sprout plants, even though a friend said that it might a bit too late. Well, he was right about that, he he.
The minus: the plants went to flower before I could harvest any sprouts.
The plus: bees love the flowers. AND you have lots of green leaves for smoothies. Yum!
