Raw Sweetheart Chocolate Cheezcake

  Lots of hugs and kisses!


INGREDIENTS:

Crust:

2 cups shredded Coconut
1 1/2 cups Medjool Dates (or other pitted dates)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt

The Cheeseless Cheez Cake Filling:

3 cups Cashews, soaked (you can substitute other soaked nuts such as pine or macadamia nuts)
1 cup Cacao butter, melted
1 cup Water
1/2 cup Maple Syrup, Raw Honey or other sweetener of choice
1/2 cup Cacao powder OR Carob powder
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Chia Gel
pinch of Celtic Sea Salt

Ganache Topping:

1/2 cup raw organic Cacao powder
1/2 cup Cacao Butter, melted
1/4 cup Maple Syrup, Raw Honey or other sweetener of choice
pinch of Celtic Sea Salt

Place your cacao butter in a bowl over hot water to start melting. In food processor, process coconut, dates and salt until it clumps uniformly.  "Grease" a springform pan with some of the  melted cacao butter. Remove the crust mix from the food processor and press it evenly in pan. Place in freezer to set while you make the rest of the cake.

**Alternatively, use a heart-shaped silicone Cake pan or cupcake pan.  You will not need to "grease" it, but follow other directions.
                

Put all the filling ingredients into Vitamix or other high-speed blender. Patiently blend this with much tamping and repositioning of the mass with your spatula! Pour into the spring form pan with the crust and spread evenly. Place in freezer to set.

Put all ingredients for topping into Vitamix or other high-speed blender and blend thoroughly. When done, pour onto your firmed  cheezcake. Put back in freezer for ganache topping to set. Slice and serve when fully set!  This cake will hold its shape if transferred after it is set to the fridge (much easier to serve up than if frozen).  Happy Valentine's Day!

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
