Raw lemon cupcakes with strawberry frosting

rawlemoncup1174

These would make great treats for a kids birthday celebration! All healthy real food ingredients Adding some chopped strawberries to the cupcake would be really good also! I am trying to start using only dates and stevia for sweeteners because of candida issues. Honey and maple seem to react similar to sugar in my body and create an environment for candida to have a party in my body! I think some my issues with the raw food diet are actually not the raw foods but candida issues. Since I started taking probiotics I have not noticed the weight gain and thinning hair as I did a few weeks ago. I actually feel like my hair has been growing faster since going raw a few weeks ago.

Raw lemon cupcake

1/3 cup +4 tablespoons ground sunflower seeds

4 tablespoons ground sprouted buckwheat groats

1/3 cup + 4 tablespoons ground coconut shreds

1/3 cup ground cashews

lemon juice of 2 lemons

2 1/2 tablespoons of lemon zest

1/3 cup coconut milk

10 soaked medjool dates

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt

strawberry frosting

1 1/2 cups strawberries

1-2 soaked medjool dates

1 tablespoon coconut milk

1 tablespoon cocoa butter or coconut oil melted

3 tablespoons ground cashews

a few drops of stevia (optional)

small pinch of sea salt (optional)

* Mix the cupcake ingredients together and put in cupcake papers ( I use the silicone reusable ones) and put in the dehydrator for a few hours.

* Blend/process the frosting ingredients and put in a pastry bag with decorative pastry tips and put the frosting on the cakes. Make sure the cakes are cooled off because if they are warm the frosting may start to melt. Also if you put the frosting in the refrigerator for an hour or so before using it will be more firm.

* Sprinkle with lemon zest optional. Enjoy! Makes 6 cupcakes.

Try some lemon ginger coconut milk ice cream!

This ice cream turned out really good. My 3 year old daughter and I were scraping the ice cream maker bowl to get every last bite. Ginger and lemons are also digestive aides and will give your body some help digesting the fat from the coconut milk. Enjoy!

Lemon ginger ice cream (Dairy free)

1 1/2 cups coconut cream (or full fat coconut milk)

1/4 cup raw honey

3 teaspoons lemon extract

1 teaspoon lemon zest

3 teaspoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

10 drops vanilla stevia

Use ice cream maker as directed. I put the flavoring ingredients in the last 5 minutes or so to prevent ice chunks from forming. Makes 2 servings
