Lately I’ve been experimenting a lot with superfoods and cakes and I also like to use dried fruit powders. Powders other than fresh fruits makes the cakes stick together better and also the color is much more intensive. Another fact especially in winter is, that fresh fruits like strawberries and raspberries are expensive and are imported here in Switzerland.
It is autumn now so I am using my last frozen berries for the decoration of my Raw Wheatgras Lime Cake. Besides of looking so fancy it is actually a pretty easy cake to make and you can be sure that people will be delighted by the color. I agree that this might be more a “summer cake” but I thought why not bringing summer back one last time and share it with you! So enjoy and don’t forget to scroll down until the end as a little surprise is waiting there.
makes a 8-inch/9-inch springform pan
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
6 big medjool dates or 8 regular ones
2 tbsp agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of fine sea salt
(Optional: Strawberries, halved)
Process the almonds, oats and coconut to a coarse meal in a food processor. Add the dates, agave syrup, vanilla and salt and process until well combined.
Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the pan.
(If you like you can place halved strawberries on the side of the pan on the crust.)
1 1/2 cups cashews (soaked overnight)
1/4 cup coconut cream (full-fat coconut milk works as well but cream makes the cake thicker)
4 tbsp lime juice and the zest of 2 limes
1 heaped tbsp wheatgrass powder (got mine from Organicburst)
4 tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
1/4 cup agave syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Place the cashews, coconut oil, vanilla extract, agave syrup, wheatgrass powder, coconut cream and lime juice into your food processor and process until mixture is smooth and creamy. Add the avocado and mix again for about 20 seconds or until combined. Last add the zest of one lime and combine with a spatula.
Scrape the filling from the food processor into the pan with the crust, and smooth out on top.
Decorate with the zest of the other lime and freeze for about 3 hours or overnight.
