Happy Earth Day!!! For my raw dessert submission I made a Chocolate-Mint cheesecake, the chocolate resembling “dirt” and the Mint resembling “grass”. The food coloring I used to dye the mint topping green with is actually liquid mint-flavored chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is our #1 source of oxygen. Without oxygen, humans could not exist. So what better way to say “Happy Birthday” to Mother Earth than with a chlorophyll-rich cake?

I’m a big fan of chia, no secret there. For those of you that have only heard of chia because of the novelty “chia pet” you’re missing out. Chia seeds are a powerhouse of protein, fiber and antioxidants. They are a strength and endurance food that was a traditional food of the Aztecs. They are also a great source of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
These little bundles of chocolate goodness are simply heaven on a spoon. The combination of chocolate and hazelnut liqueur will have you hanging on by your fingertips.
