    Free Cake for all - Save the Date - Monday 4th September

    Free Cake for all - Save the Date - Monday 4th September

    Today I learned/ realised three things:

    1. Earth Angel to millions, my publisher Louise Hay, has been promoted to Angel to trillions. On this very day of her transition, I got a crazy urge to run again. I haven't been for a run in a long loooong time and today I ran like I did in my years of Cross Country before I broke my back in a car crash. And I didn't just run either, I ran with affirmations flowing through my mind while rain drops were soaking my clothes. I thought of Louise Hay because she introduced me to the power of affirmation. Then I got home and learned of her passing. With a heavy heart, I reached for her Power Thought Cards and this is what I pulled out: "The Past is Over. This is a new day, one that I have never lived before. I stay in the Now and enjoy each and every moment". Thank you for this message dear Angel Louise -this time and for the first time- from above.

    louise hay passed at age 90

    2. This year my birthday falls on my favourite day of the year. Monday. I've always loved Mondays, I believed Monday to be lucky and it has always brought me luck. And this year I'll be turning 33. For anyone not in the know- 33 is the Jesus Year/ Year of Christ. It is the age he was risen so this year is significant to many (me included) as it's all about reinvention, rebirth and setting new benchmarks. How dear this all feels to me knowing that this is also the 1 Universal Year. Wow. (It also marks the beginning of a long 9 year journey towards my Elvis Year at 42, so I best be making the most of Jesus Year then 😜)

    Need cake within 1 hour? Here's how you can get yours delivered in London...

    A little bit excited over here, because while I continue to struggle with building a whole new website on my own, I'm pretty sure you'd agree that I have my priorities straight!...

    You already know that my cake isn't just ANY cake!

    You do, don't you? :-P

    It's Creamy, Delicious, Organic & made entirely from Plants. 

    Cashews give it the creamy texture & because they've been activated (soaked), they are actually good for your gut. Plus since what holds it together is Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (or unrefined Cacao Butter), it makes Dessert good for your Digestion! 

    There’s no gluten, dairy, preservatives or refined sugar inside & best of all- there’s no chemicals! Every seed and fruit used is Organic Certified, so it's even gentler on your body, making all the other nutrients & vitamins more readily available, energising & nourishing at the same time.

    But you’ll never be able to tell any of that when indulging in the taste!

    We have 2 sizes and 5 flavours available.

    Pick up, take away, dine in or get it delivered within London, within one hour, any day of the week!

    Happy Monday!


    Raw Dairy-free Banoffee Cheesecake

    Raw Dairy-free Banoffee Cheesecake

    The Banoffee Pie was possibly my favourite dessert growing up in NZ.

    I’m a self confessed caramel addict so anything like Sticky Toffee Pudding or Salted Caramel Slice or Banoffee and my name is all over it!

    I literally thought that if I picked a restaurant based on its availability of Banoffee Pie, then it had to be the most popular dessert and therefore an iconic one. So can you imagine my surprise when I made it in Ecuador (for Americans and Europeans btw) and they thought I couldn’t spell or say Coffee properly ?

    Let’s settle this once and for all… Banoffee is a combo of two words: Banana and Toffee. Kinda like Brangelina or Bennifer or even Tomkat, where they make a stupidly good genetically gifted union, but are just as delicious, individually.

    Here’s my raw, unprocessed, dairy-free, gluten-free, cheezecake version of the ‘classic’ Banoffee Pie…


    Tanya's cafe raw food recipe Banoffee pie

    For the crust:
    1 cup dry walnuts
    1 cup pitted dates
    2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, melted
    1 teaspoon vanilla powder
    1/3 teaspoon Himalayan salt

    For the banana cream:
    2 cups soaked cashews (from 1.5 dry)
    3 medium bananas, peeled
    1 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
    1/8 cup maple syrup
    Juice of 1 lemon

    For the toffee top:
    2 cups pitted dates, soaked
    1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
    2 tablespoons almond butter
    2 tablespoons maple syrup
    1/3 teaspoon Himalayan salt

    Chocolate drizzle, melt store bought or use this recipe>>

    -Transfer all the crust ingredients except coconut oil into a food processor and process till broken down enough to resemble rice. Add the coconut oil and process again till you have a sticky ball. Transfer onto a 9 inch cake tin (make sure the base can be removed or line the dish with cling film to pull it out later). Distribute the mixture evenly using your hands and press it firmly down using your fist.

    -After soaking the cashews overnight, transfer all cream ingredients into a blender and blend on high. (TIP: if you don’t have time, soak cashews in hot water for 2 hours). Scrape down the sides of blender jug and blend again until creamy. Pour the mixture over crust and transfer to the fridge for 2 hours or freezer for 1 hour.

    -Make sure the dates are nice and soft before blending. (If they are already gooey and sticky, you might not need to soak overnight. If they are quite dry or you don’t have ‘overnight’, try soaking in hot water for 2 hours.) Transfer all the toffee ingredients into blender or food processor and blitz on high till creamy. Scoop this mixture onto the semi-set banana layer and spread as evenly as you prefer. Transfer to the fridge for a minimum of 1 hour, preferably 3.

    -If you’re drizzling with chocolate, slice the cake into 12-16 portions first, separate the slices by a few millimetres and drizzle away. Store in the fridge at all times.
