Day 20

Lemons, when consumed through food or beverage, contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that support immunity, digestion, detoxification, blood circulation and even ensures the health of the skin, hair, nails and teeth. Lemon is also valuable outside its culinary use and health benefits, it is a great cleaning and disinfecting agent, and even an insect repellant.

Luscious Lemon Cream Cake

Ingredients:
crust
½ cup almonds
½ cup macadamia nuts
¼ cup Medjool dates
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted at low temperatures
a pinch of vanilla powder
a pinch of pink salt

filling
1 ½ cups cashews, soaked and rinsed
½ cup fresh lemon juice
zest of one lemon
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted at low temperatures
½ cup coconut milk or young Thai coconut meat
3 tbsp liquid sweetener
a pinch of pink salt
fresh berries for garnish

Procedure:
For the crust, pulse the nuts then add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor, pulse until well combined.
For the filling, blend in a high-speed blender – don’t be afraid to get tough with it. This is the secret to the creamy consistency.
Sprinkle a few loose coconut flakes on the bottom of a springform pan (about 6 inches in diametre) then press the crust mixture into the pan. While preparing the filling, place pan with crust into the freezer to set. Once the filling reaches a creamy texture, pour into pan using a spatula to smooth the surface. Place entire cake in the freezer to set (at least 3 hours). Take out of the freezer half an hour before serving to thaw slightly. Garnish with lemon zest and fresh berries.
