It's been a while since I made a raw cake but do you blame me! I feel like the past 1.5 years has almost been a ride off! As most of you might already know I had a baby 6 months ago. For 6 months of my pregnancy I was pretty much bed ridden with severe morning sickness, had the baby and have been non stop since! If I'm not chasing my 4 year around, I'm nursing Bub.. It's been quite a challenge getting in the kitchen to make all my favourite treats. I feel that's slowly changing now having scheduled the husbo to daddy day care.. ;)
Anyhoo.. more about this cake! As the title states, it's RAW, VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, SUPER CREAMY, full of amazing SUPERFOOD goodness and is the perfect healthy alternative to dairy & sugary Laden Icecream.
Macqui Berry is one of my absolute favourite superfoods for the following reasons;
- Antioxidants - Macqiu berries are super potent in antioxidants
- Skin Food - The ultimate skin food! Due to the high levels of Antioxidants (several times higher than Acai), This superfood is a great anti ageing supplement and can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age blemishes
- Lung Health - Can help with Lung health and respiratory damage caused by inflammation and oxidative stress
- Weight Loss - Macqui berries help flush the toxins from your system and have an overall positive impact on your metabolism and the digestive system. They may also help with food absorption thus making it easier for your body to metaboilse fat rather store it!
Now onto the most important part, the recipe!
