Raw messy rose cake

This is an desperate I need cake NOW recipe, made from scratch and all my attempts in making the ice-cream balls look nice, failed as you can see. Nevertheless it was a really nice creation that lifted my mood in no time and pleased my taste buds efficiently. The special flavor of rosewater makes the strawberry ice cream really delicious and gives it an oriental touch. For the crust I took my raw flat bread which I had on hand and spread a lot of maple syrup on top of it. If you can’t be bothered to make the bread you could also simply make a crust of almonds and dates.

For the crust:

or:

  • 1 cups of soaked almonds
  • 1/2 cup of pitted dates
  •  

For the cream:

  • 2 cups soaked cashews
  • 3 Tbs cacao powder
  • 3 Tbs Maple sirup

For the Ice cream:

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 2 Tbs rose water
  • 3 Tbs coconut milk
  • 3 Tbs Maple sirup


If you are using the flat bread then stance a round piece out of the bread to build your crust. I used my steel salad bowl for that matter. Spread the maple sirup very generously. If you are making the crust of almonds and dates then blend them in your food processor and form a round base somehow.

Then make the cream of the cashew and the cocoa powder in the food processor, add maple syrup and a little water if you think it’s too thick . Then top your cake base with it. Let it sit in the fridge for the time you need to make the Ice cream.

Throw the ingredients for the ice cream in the food processor and let it blend for a few minutes. As it is too soft after blending you’ll have to freeze it now again for some time. I think I waited for 30-40 min. Now take your base with the cashew cream and decorate with the ice cream. Take a few dried roses if your presenting it to someone special (I’m not mentioning valentines, no no no) and go wild on the decoration. I used dried coconut too. Or just go for it and munch it up for your egoistic self. Bon appétit

About Sarita Chia

Hello and Namaskaram from South India my current home. My name is Sarita and I am originally from Germany. After spending my last 7 years in the big cities Berlin and London I decided to settle for a life in a more peaceful, green and soothing atmosphere. Here I share my passion for raw and vegan food. It's been quite a journey for me after turning vegan in May 2011 and I got to explore so incredibly much in these past years and got quite experienced in food prep, cooking vegan meals and moreover learning to listening to my body and which foods suit me the best. I just adore sweet fruit and love to indulge in raw desserts, cakes, ice creams, cookies, smoothie bowls, you name it. Just can't get over it what magic can be done with simple ingredients being likewise a treat for your taste buds and for your system. Yoga and meditation has become another big part of my life over the years. I feel the benefits from just that little fragment of time which I invest daily. I feel that that’s for me the most significant experience of my life which I want to deepen even more. Apart from that I'm a big nature fan and love love love trees :) and yes I also hug them if I feel like it. I'm a great hippie just like my parents, all up for love and peace. I believe that everyone creates their own world and is responsible for everything happening in their lives, even the bad stuff. I try to keep a happy and positive outlook on things as I find that perception creates reality. I am also a great dreamer: I believe that everyone on this planet will turn vegan someday and that it's possible for humankind to evolve into conscious and loving beings which manage to live without wars, money, hatred and crime. The revolution has already started as everyone starts from their own personal (r)evolution towards truth, compassion, empathy, love, peace and all the good stuff. We are constantly learning how to be better humans that’s what I believe. And dayum I ride my rainbow colored unicorn in my sunshine filled fairy world just because I can. I believe in magic. True every day magic. Good happy magic moments. It happens every day you just have to open your eyes ;) Travelling is my heart and I count it as a great part of education. The most important one actually! I think that by travelling you get to learn the real shit! The real life lessons! Be free and wild. Be a child of wind and sun. With this blog I hope to inspire others to make healthier & happier choices and I hope to show how easy it is to switch and keep up a healthy plantbased diet all around the world.
