Raw raspberry rose and white chocolate mousse cake

raspberryrosecake

I am trying not to eat too many deserts that contain much fat but there is something about this combination I just couldn’t resist! We have a huge raspberry bush in our back yard that is starting to produce raspberries every day now so I will be eating tons of them in the next few weeks-Yum! I fell of my raw food wagon a few days ago because I’m starting to put on some weight and it seemed like my hair was starting to thin so I panicked and started eating some black beans and fish. I have always noticed my hair seems to get really healthy, shiny and thicker when I am eating a lot of black beans. I think it may be because it is high is the amino acid L-lysine which is good for hair growth and beans are a great protein source. I think I will go back on the raw but still include some black beans and some digestive aides like more probiotics to make sure I am absorbing my protein better. And also I will be increasing my fresh veggie juice intake. Any readers with some raw advice on these issues are appreciated! Leave comments below! I just did my first mud run yesterday and I had a BLAST! Who knew playing in the mud could be so much fun!!

This is a healthy yummy treat for the family! I am loving raspberries lately. They are high in vitamin C and not overly sweet.

1 cup of frozen raspberries

1 avocado

2 soaked dates

1 cup of coconut milk( or just enough to blend the ingredients)

a few drops of vanilla stevia to taste
