RAW CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY CAKE

This is so delicious that it’s suitable for dessert and for breakfast. Plus you can even use these powders mixed in water or the milk of your choice or even sprinkled on cereal and muesli.

I know it sounds complicated but it’s actually pretty easy because since this cake is raw, all you need is a springform tin, space in your freezer, blender and food processor.

Also, this cake will keep in the fridge for up to three days. Otherwise slice it into individual servings and put them in a sealed container in the freezer for up to three months. Simply pull a slice or two out 10-20 minutes before you need it.
