    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!

    Acai Berry recipe collection - 1 for each day of the week!

    Acai Berry recipe collection - 1 for each day of the week!

    I love Acai. It’s a berry from the jungles of South America, which is usually picked where ever it grows wild, freeze-dried near by, blended and sent to us around the world in a powdered form. It doesn’t have much of a taste or sweetness but it packs a massive punch of antioxidants and Vitamin C and that’s good enough for me!

    You can get Acai (as a frozen block of blended whole berry plus water) in freezers of select health stores nowadays, but the below recipes are for this Superfood in a powdered form.

    I love working with superfood powders and this one is right at the top of my list. Let me know which recipe you like the best!

     

    Hot Sesame Milk Acai Berry Latte

    Dairy free Acai latte recipe

    💗

    1 tbsp tahini (raw or lightly toasted)

    2 medjool dates, pitted

    1 heaped tbsp Acai powder

    1 cup hot water

    💗

    Pop all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds. If your blender isn't very powerful, blend for longer to break down the dates fully. Transfer to a mug and enjoy.

    No Dehydrator Choc Chip Acai Berry Cookies

    No dehydrator raw food cookie recipe

    💗

    For the cookies:
    1 cup dry cashews
    1 cup raisins
    1/2 cup desiccated coconut
    3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
    2 tbsp acai powder
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

    💗

    For the chocolate chips:
    ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
    ¼ cup cacao powder
    1½ tbsp agave or maple syrup
    ⅓ tsp Himalayan salt

    💗

    Process all the cookie ingredients except coconut oil, in a food processor until broken down. Add the oil and process again. Divide up the mixture into 5 equal portions, form them into balls and press flat greaseproof paper. Use your fingers or a spatula to smooth out the edges of each cookie.
    -Prepare the chocolate chips by melting the coconut oil in a dehydrator or a double boiler, add the remaining chocolate ingredients, and stir until all the clumps are eliminated. Pour this over a clean teflex sheet or tin foil and transfer to the freezer to set for 10 minutes. Chop up the chocolate into desired sized chips. Press them into cookies and transfer the cookies to either the fridge or freezer to set. They can be stored in either and will keep for months.

    Blend all the cheesecake pop ingredients on high. Open blender and scrape down the sides of the jug, blend again until creamy. Transfer to the fridge and let it set for a minimum of 3 hours, ideally overnight. Using a small ice cream scoop, form half spheres and insert a lollipop stick or straw into the middle of each. Transfer to a freezer for a minimum of 3 hours. Mix all the chocolate ingredients with a hand whisk till there are no lumps. Take a Cheesecake pop and dip it into chocolate sauce, one at a time. Turn it upside down and twist it around till you see the chocolate set, then place on a clean cold plate.
