Chocolate Mousse Tart

Chocolate Mousse Tart

After our last post 6 Ways to Self Care in Isolation what could be more fitting than a beautifully grounding, delicious tart that is ALSO full of goodness?

 

We've taken the delicious raw cacao blend "Grounding" from Little Alchemy and turned it into a fluffy, light mousse tart with very little effort. Although it did take a couple of times to get it right.

Easter Celebration Tart

Easter Celebration Tart

There are so many celebrations throughout the year. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, housewarming, engagements, weddings....And that's before we even get started on the set holidays such as Easter, Mothers and Fathers Days and Christmas. It doesn't matter what nationality you are, celebrations always revolve around food. And we all have our own traditions. 

Which is wonderful. Except if you are digestively challenged

I've lost count of how many cakes I have gazed upon longingly, trifles I have winked at, tarts I have drooled over, all in the hope that the gluten would magically disappear. There have been many a person...

Raw Bounty Donuts

If you read my interview last month, you will know I have had a life long love affair with donuts. Cinnamon ones have always been my favourite, I will take those over iced ones any day.

As it is National Donut Day today, what better way to celebrate than with some healthy donuts! I think...

The lid on my food processor broke. Completely. I picked it up after being washed and it fell apart.

I checked my receipt and yes I am in warranty! I rang the company and no I don't have to go back to where I bought it from, since the photos I sent showed the lid would be covered under warranty and if I check my emails in about 15 minutes I will have all the details I need to return the broken lid and a new one will be sent out to me. Great! How long does this...

Raw cheesecakes are a constant in my house. Different flavours, some on repeat and some on demand.

When I started making raw cheesecakes I made a large cake. Now I always make mini ones - they are much easier to serve, to store and to eat. Sometimes I go through a phase of making cheesecakes so with the mini ones you can keep a variety of flavours in the freezer and they ready for serving at a moment’s notice – well, I do like mine defrosted and straight from the fridge but I know some who prefer them frozen.
