Make these snack bites by Stefania D’Alessandro of La Tortoise if you like a little zest and spice in your life. Sticky sweet dates combine with raw almonds, cashews, coconut oil, ginger, lime juice and zest and a dash of heat from chili pepper. Wake up those taste buds while giving the ol’ blood sugar a boost. Enjoy!


150 g dates
1 lime (zest and juice)
50 g almonds
50 g cashew nuts
grated ginger
½ small chili pepper
1 tbsp coconut oil


1) Coarsely blend (without adding any water), shape as you please (I used a muffin tin), let the bites rest in the freezer overnight, then store in the fridge. Wait at least 24 hours before consuming (so that they reach the peak of deliciousness).

I'm Stefania, born in '85, Italian and living in Prague. I've been eating mainly plant-based food for years now, but I've been ispired to delve into raw food only recently, after I met an extraordinary healer from New Zealand and his Czech girlfriend. Witnessing how this philosophy affected their lives has been more eloquent and motivating than a thousand words, thus my current interest is to conciliate the cuisine I love and I'm used to (which has already been almost completely veganized) with raw food. When I don't fail miserably, I love to share some successful attempts on my blog. Besides "cooking", I'm a mathematician at the end of her "career" (willing to switch to food!), I've been practicing tai chi for two years (couldn't love it more), I enjoy learning new languages (or at least: trying to - under way: Czech and French), listening to music and talking to my stuffed toys.
