Holy Guacamole, did someone say Nutty Dark Chocolate + Strawberry Chia Jam Cheesecake?  Yep, I did and this cake is entirely inspired by my childhood addiction. I know what you're thinking, Maria was healthy when she was young... HAHA  NOPE!  I wasn't addicted to vegetable recipes and vegetarian recipes, I was a full on CAKE ADDICT!   I'm not kidding guys I would eat DQ Ice Cream Cake at any opportunity and half the time it wasn't even my damn birthday *sigh* - poor parents .
rootandbones Did someone say Ice Cream?!? Yep, I did! Made using natural food like cacao, fruit (banana) and maple syrup.  All you need to do in blend up all the gorgeous ingredients and you have yourself the most delicious and nutritious recipe, ever! This raw food recipe is a super simple raw food diet idea too - so add it to your favourites! Should I also mention that this recipe is extremely high in plant based protein (from the nut butters) and antioxidants (from the Reishi).
