Make a ‘Raspberry Bliss Cup’ with Wise Cicada Raw Chef Azusa
Thurs 20 April – 10am -11.30am @ Wise Cicada

Our chef Azusa will guide your child as they put together two Raspberry Chia Bliss Cups (a favourite from our raw cake cabinet). They will take home one for themselves and one to share. $5 Material Fee Email shelley@wisecicada.co.nz to book

Please Note: Here is the Recipe – It contains Peanut Butter – If you want us to switch to a cashew or almond butter for all attending please let us know – we will do so happily. It may just increase the material fee a little.

Raspberry Bliss Cups – Simple to Make and Delicious!

Ingredients:
Organic Vegan Chocolate ( We Like Lubeca)
Organic Peanut Butter
3 Tbsp White Chia Seeds
1.5 Cup Lemon Juice
3 Cups Frozen Organic Raspberries

Melt chocolate gently and pour into small cupcake or chocolate moulds, allow to set and release from moulds.

Spoon a little organic peanut butter into the base of each chocolate vessel.

Create a raspberry chia jam by blending the defrosted berries, lemon juice and chia. Leave to set for at least an hour. If the texture is too runny, add more chia seeds.

Spoon chia raspberry jam into the moulds and garnish with seasonal fruit.

Enjoy!

Thanks so much for coming along last Sunday to clean Okahu Bay guys and working so hard.

Let’s do it again soon. Suggestions on time, place, day?……. we just need to pick a day when the tide is low for maximum rubbish collecting impact.

You and your friends can join the face book group and make sure you are on the email list too.

Join us in a small effort to sweep the Eastern beaches, plus any others suggested, and ‘do our bit’ to help reduce the litter washed up on the shore lines.

The duo have performed in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Netherlands, Germany, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Portugal

The River Roots Band are a powerful mixture of roots and alternative acoustic, with hints of folk and reggae beats, bringing diverse sounds and a playful uplifting vibe. Conscious, mind opening music delivered from the heart. Delivering surprisingly danceable sounds from just an acoustic guitar. Lyrically each song has a spiritual meaning or a positive message to enlighten people through their daily lives.
