Raw Chocolate Orange Cake

My aunt is displaying her graduation art show on Saturday, she is three years into her studies and it is well worth celebrating so  on Saturday a bunch of people are coming over for dinner and so I am making a cake…

This one is NUT FREE – RAW – VEGAN – GLUTEN FREE But it is creamier than cream and it is abolutey delicious and oh, super simple. I use all organic products in my recepies.

This easy base is nut free and can be used as a base for any type of cake, this creamy chocolate orange one is my favourite.

The Bottom Layer is based on –

‹› 1 cup Sunflower Seeds

‹› 0.75 cup Pumpkin Seeds

‹› 1 cup Dates

The Topping is –

‹› 4 Avocados

‹› 125 g Agave Syrup

‹› 190 g melted Coconut Oil

‹› 120 g Cacao

‹› 1 tsp Vanilla Powder

‹› 1 tbsp Orange Oil ( make sure the one you get is not a cleaning product and to get it as pure as you can, preferably ORGANIC )

So Process the three ingedients for the base until fine and smooth.

Place on the bottom of a cake platter, on top of baking paper.

Not  Blend the ingredients for the top until smooth and then spread out evenly on top of the base, out is freezer over night and take them out to de-frost in the fridge about an hour before you serve them.

If you want to decorate it I would suggest keeping it simple since the cake itself is full of flavour and just sere it the a little bit of orange or raspberry jam on the side.

Quick Heart Check-In

heart

When you wake up in the morning still lying in bed snoozing, when you feel over whelmed, when you feel heavy, down or when you are feeling happy, when you want to connect.

Close your eyes, start breathing in and out of your nose, come to pay total attention to your breath until you feel completely relaxed. Then bring your attention to your heart center. Breath into this area and when you feel ready, place your left hand over your heart center. Now just observe what this area feels like, without judgement without wanting to change whatever you are feeling. Is it feeling Warm? Tense? Open? Vibrating? Just observe, acknowledge and accept.

Try to just inject some heart connection in your daily routine, for it is easy to forget about our loving & limitless heart space.

Teaching Update

I have been teaching more classes with the gym now, about eight in just one week, and today I  could for the first time step into the class without being scared of what the participants would think of me or of how my voice sounded. I felt connected and comfortable with being in the front, wearing a mic, and I even injected a little guided meditation. The response I got from the participants was overwhelming, absolute stillness and gratitude we filled the room with.

Much love
