Making raw cinnamon rolls~ 

We've been capturing my parents house out in the countryside for a while now (I have been loosing track of the days, which indeed is a result of the nature taking over my mind... aaaah!) They are out traveling so we couldn't miss the opportunity to escape the city for a week of working, chilling and reconnecting. We still have sauna bathing on our schedule :) And making a bonfire out in the forrest. Connecting with the elements is vital for my wellbeing. 

Earlier this week we had the Day of the Cinnamon roll in Sweden, so I figured I could try make some in a raw version. I've been wanting to try to roll a raw dough in the making of different desserts and it wasn't as tricky as I imagined. Though not like rolling a non raw dough. You could do it with nut flour as you would roll a non raw dough (but with wheat flour), or use plastic film. I rolled these buns using plastic film. I made a fatty, salty, sweet and spicy filling and sprinkled with bee pollen. You will see more of these babies later.  

This is a very nutritious smoothie with immune boosting ingredients such as the raw coconut butter/oil, the berries and purple corn. Antioxidants and a good quality fat is just what you need when it's getting chilly and dark.

Back to summer berry~smoothie, serves 2
• 2 bananas
• 1/2 - 0,8 cups strawberries
• 1/2 cup raspberries

Kokosfett, menar du kokosolja då, eller är det något annat? Jag kan inte tänka mig att det är den processade kokosfettet i blått och silver man hittar i mataffären, eller?

Elenore: hihi, ja vad gjorde man utan mossa lixom? :)

Gab: Yes, it's been really energizing, and have given new perspectives on things. Im grateful of this week. Hugs!

Tess: Ja kokosfett, kokosolja är samma. Jag menar det kallpressade, ekologiska kokosfettet. Hihi det kokosfettet man hittar i mataffärer duger nog mest att göra tvål av :D Men tänk om det kom en dag där man kunde köpa bra kokosfett i en vanlig mataffär. Det vore nått!
