Raw Trifle? Seriously?
A Word from The Raw Food Girl
One of my favourite Christmas desserts is TRIFLE. Cream, custard, cake - it's the trifecta for a sweet tooth!
These days, the idea of making a traditional Trifle makes me feel kind of sick. It's an absolute bomb for gluten, dairy and of course - SUGAR.
My raw version contains plenty of healthy fats (hello cashews and coconut!), and natural sweetners (stevia, maple syrup and fruits). A small amount goes along way here - you won't feel the need to keep going back for more.
Frequent consumption of refined sugar and processed foods can mess with our hormone cycles - actively "switching off" our full hormone (leptin), and "switch on" our hungry hormone (gherlin).
Eating foods in their whole food form helps regulate these imbalances - meaning we are satiated when we should be, and not when we've eaten way too much.
Even though this trifle is raw and made with whole foods, it's not what you want to be eating for breakfast. This is a treat - which means it's a perfect addition to your Christmas feast. Enjoy!
