What I ate Wednesday and raw black forest mousse cake and ice cream bars


For breakfast I snacked on some almonds and a few bites of my kids gluten free toast with pumpkin seed butter before my work out at the gym then had some goji berries when I got back.


For lunch I ate a huge salad with kale,cashews, sun dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, GF pesto pasta from my kid’s dinner from last night, onions, and a little sheep cheese on top. I think that salad was too heavy because it did not sit well-but it was tasty. I also made some fresh veggie juice also with: carrots, apples, lemon, ginger, parsley, celery, cucumber, beets, and pineapple=Fabuloussss! Makes a beautiful pinkish colored juice.

For dinner I had a lighter salad with romaine, sun dried tomatoes, raspberries, pesto seed crackers crumbled up, and some chia seeds. I usually use lemon and olive oil for my salad dressing with  little garlic and salt. I made up for the light salad with the black forest ice cream bars that I made with the left over mousse from my mousse cake I made earlier. Recipe below!



Black forest mousse cake (mini -with leftovers)


2 cups cashews soaked

1/4 cup coconut oil melted

5 soaked medjool dates

1 cup black cherries

2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

10 drops vanilla stevia (optional)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

chocolate cake crust:

1 cup ground cashews

2 soaked dates

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

5 drops vanilla stevia (optional)

* Blend mousse ingredients until smooth

* Make crust ingredients and form to bottom of 4″springform pan ( I line the bottom in parchment paper and grease the sides with coconut oil)

*For the top melt 1/4 cup coconut oil with 3 tablespoons of cocoa and 10 drops of stevia to make the chocolate for the top ( or melt chocolate chips) You can pour some on parchment paper and put in the refrigerator to make the chocolate chunks for the sides of the cake.

  1. You won me over with raw black forest mousse cake. I have to confess the rest of your eats (wonderful as they are) fade in comparison 😉

  2. I agree with Kari. Bring on the raw black forest mousse cake! I can’t decide if I like the mousse or the cake better, so I guess I’ll have to try them together! 🙂

  3. This sounds really delicious! Thanks for sharing it at Raw Foods Thursdays.

  4. That juice is gorgeous! And I am totally trying the mousse cake.
