The other day we went to a crystal shop and bought a couple of new stones to our collection. Oh dear, how strong are they not! We have honestly felt a bit strange these last days. Many emotions flowing through us and we need some time to find our way through it all. We know we should never fight any emotions. Never try to ignore them. It might be easier to distract ourselves and go on in our lives finding pleasure from external satisfaction. In the end, we all know that is not the way to go. We need to take our time to remove old blockages and set ourselves free and to be able to see clearly. It can hurt quite some but it will be worth it, eventhough it might not feel like that at the moment! 😉 You dear friend, do you have any thoughts? Have you felt like an emotional roller coaster after purchasing some crystals? Or any other thoughts. Please feel free to share! Love to hear from you.
As you already know we had a birthday weekend and a couple of delicious Raw Vegan recipes to share with you. So the first recipe out today is a super yummie creation from our beautiful friend Ragnhild. We made her Heavenly Fudgy Raw Vegan Brownie and seriously it was beyond this world. DELICIOUS! Please have a look at her site for more amazing recipes and lovely blog. She has written the recipe in Norwegian so we have translated it into English.
Fudgy Raw Brownies (hellooo Choco Heaven)
– 250 g firm raw almond butter
– 2 tbl coconut oil
– 4 tbl agave syryp (or any other sweetener works probably perfectly)
– a pinch of pink Himalaya salt
– Sprinkle vanilla
– 4 big tbl raw cacao
– 2 handful of chopped macadamia nuts or hazel nuts (we used hazel nuts)
Put all the ingredients in a big bowl and mix it well. Place it on a form and put it in the freezer. Keep it in the freezer until it is time to serve.
Seriously. Beyond delicious! Our pics donnot make it fair so it is definitely worth a try. We actually made a new version right now! 😉 So give it a go! Here is the link to Ragnhild´s recipe.
We also made a delicious Vanilla Spread that we covered our brownies and some other cakes with. It works perfectly as a normal dip for your fruits if you want to make it more sweet and serve as a dessert.
– 1 1/2 cups of cashews
– 1/4 cup of water
– 3 tbl coconut oil
– 2 tbl agave syryp
– 1 tbl of vanilla / 1 vanilla bean
– a pinch of salt
Put all the ingredients except water in your blender. Start mixing it and add as little water as needed until it gets smooth enough. Voilá you have the perfect Vanilla Dip. Spread it over your cake or dip your fruit in it!
Today´s powerful words by Carl Jung suits perfectly how we are feeling today at least 😉 So here we go:
“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
With our hearts,
