Dragonfruit Mangosteen Raw “Cheesecake”

Layers of Delicious-ness

 

Another creation from the raw-side!  I used the limited ingredients I had, the single speed blender, and a little elbow grease to whip up something delicious.  Dragonfruit and Mangosteen are also prominent fruits in Bali with great health benefits so I figured I would try to combine to two for a tasty treat.

This faux cheesecake is super refreshing and great to devour on a hot day.  Enjoy! Continue reading “From Our Kitchen”

Chocolate Dipped No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

If you don’t already know, I own a gluten free bakery back home Apricus Bake Shoppe and have been seriously missing baking and cooking while traveling.  Unfortunately, our kitchen in Bali is pretty basic… I’m talking one stove top burner, a sink, a fridge, and that’s it.  Without an oven there definitely won’t be any traditional baking going on, but it’s time to explore a version of this “raw” craze going.

Here’s the first recipe, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.  Enjoy!
