Mmmm. Hot green tea.
Started off drinking a cup a day because I really wanted the health benefits. Now I am drinking it because weirdly, it turns out I actually like it!
Off to see Deadpool 2 🕺🏻💪🏿🏋️♂️ #greentea
MATCHA SWEET POTATO CAKE
FOR THE CAKES:
2 cups steamed peeled sweet potatoes
1/3 cup peeled pears, steamed (or 3 tablespoon pear or applesauce)
1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon flax powder
1/4 cup shelled hazelnuts, measured then milled/crushed finely
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla essence/extract
2 teaspoon caramel essence (optional)
1 medium-small banana
Cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste
Gluten-free flour, for dusting
FOR THE MATCHA FROSTING:
1/3 cup cannellini/white beans or 1 steamed sweet potato
1/4 cup non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon matcha powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cinnamon, to taste
3 tablespoon sweetener/confectioners’ sugar (increase to taste)
1 teaspoon agave nectar (optional)
FOR THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
2 teaspoon cacao powder
4 teaspoon tahini oil (the stuff that floats on top of a jar of tahini) or coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1-2 teaspoon agave nectar
FOR THE TOPPINGS:
Berries of choice
Steam your pear and sweet potatoes and let cool.
Preheat the oven to 355°F and spray either an 8-inch pie pan or 2 smaller bundt-style tins. If using the latter, spray and then sprinkle some flour on the inside.
Blend your pear, sweet potatoes, and milk until smooth, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
Pour into tin/pan and bake for 40 minutes.
Let it cool for 15 minutes minimum before attempting to remove from tin, if using bundt-style.
Meanwhile, blend your matcha frosting and adjust sweetener to taste. If using a large 8-inch pan, then increase ingredients to 3/4 cup beans, 1/8 cup sweetener, 1/8 cup, plus 4 tablespoon soy milk, 1 teaspoon matcha, and 1 teaspoon agave to cover the entire top surface.
When your cake is cooled spread the matcha frosting on top or blob it on top of your mini bundt-style cakes.
In a small bowl, mix together your chocolate sauce and drizzle liberally.
Top with nuts and berries and serve.

Time for Spring Cleaning!
It can be really hard to part with something. Other times it is really easy. I have been spring cleaning both home and business. As I unpack boxes and find new homes for things, I realize that things I thought I wanted to bring with me on our new chapter do not fit our lifestyle or home now. Back in the box they go! That's the easy spring cleaning.
The harder one was to spring clean my #teas . Citrus Joy is in its final run. This fresh blend of green tea, orange peel and lemon balm is leaving the @leafandtwig product line. Be sure to pick up your tins today as limited quantities are available.
