Something different! Awatapu year 12s really enjoyed making a dessert this week – the raw mint slice. Base made from medjool dates, carob powder, almonds, coconut. Filling from coconut that you blend at high speed until to turns into a paste! Amazing. Coloured with organic greens powder. Flavoured with organic essential peppermint oil. Sweetened with a little rice syrup. Icing topping made with 100% pure organic maple syrup mixed with carob powder, and cocoa butter – then sprinkled with a little sea salt.
The class was split into two, each half making one recipe each. They both turned out really well – and we all agreed they tasted delicious! Ka pai.
