March 17th marks World Cakes Day, a day dedicated to celebrating one of life's greatest pleasures - cake!
While indulging in a slice of cake may not seem like the most athletic pursuit, it's important to remember that not all cakes are created equal. With the right ingredients and balance of nutrients, cake can actually be a great addition to an active lifestyle.
In this post, we'll explore how to create a cake that is not only delicious but also compatible with your fitness goals.
So, whether you're a seasoned athlete or just looking to lead a healthier lifestyle, read on for a recipe that is sure to satisfy both your sweet tooth and your fitness needs.
1 cup dates
1 cup walnuts or almonds, raw
1 1/2 cup cashews, raw
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup coconut oil
juice of 1 large lemon
1/2 cup sugar, or other organic sweetener
1/2 cup blueberries
lavender to garnish
Soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes, drain. Add to a food processer and blend until dates form into a ball. Remove and set aside.
Add raw walnuts or almonds to food processor and process into a meal. Add the dates back into the mixture and blend until a loose dough forms. Add a pinch of salt to taste.
Lightly grease a 12 slot muffin tin. Scoop in heaping 1 tbsp. amounts of mixture and press down with fingers. Pack tightly using a spoon or small glass, use wax paper as a barrier if the mix is too sticky. Set in freezer to firm.
Add remaining ingredients to a blender and process until very smooth. Divide filling among the muffin tin. Add fresh blueberries or lavender as desired. Cover with plastic and place in freezer until hard, about 4 to 6 hours. Set out for a few minutes to soften, or serve frozen.
In conclusion, enjoying a slice of cake doesn't have to mean sacrificing your fitness goals! With the right recipe and balance of nutrients, cake can be a tasty and healthy addition to your diet. And remember, indulging in a treat every once in a while is part of a balanced lifestyle.
