Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Breakfast Parfait
This chocolate porridge is light and healthy without being overly sweet, so it’s something you can enjoy in the morning. You may go with the option of adding a banana for natural sweetness, a couple tablespoons of cacao powder, and a hint of vanilla and maple syrup. The porridge is great all on its own, but if you want to get fancy, go to town with the toppings. I added toasted hazelnuts, toasted flaked coconut, banana and strawberries, strawberry chia seeds.
- Mini Matcha No Bake Ice Box Cake
Move over your traditional baked cake. This cake by someone genius is wickedly delicious and adorable. A dessert which will give your meals an ending you deserve. All it takes is a 15 minutes of your time and then the refrigerator can chill it overnight. With a hand mixer, beat the cream until soft peaks form. Add in the matcha and whip until mixed. On a plate, lay down 3 wafers. Top each wafer with about 2 teaspoons of matcha whipped cream. Add a wafer on top and press down slightly. Repeat until each mini cake has 4 layers. If desired, ice the mini cake all the way around. Place in the fridge overnight – this is when the magic happens. The wafers rehydrate and become cake-like. The next day, enjoy!
