The weekend is a great time to get together with family and friends, perhaps with a BBQ on the beach or a
picnic at the park. And a cake is always the perfect item to share at these gatherings.

Today we’d love to introduce you to a deliciously creamy and smoothMatcha and Lime Cake with Strawberry and Coconutfrom the super talented Ida Ginman from @mymessyeatery.

Ida is a 21-year old girl who was born and raised in Finland. She lives in Sydney where she has a big interest in vegetarian and vegan foods. She loves to get creative in the kitchen whenever she has time to spare - check out her creations:

Ida’s recipe creates a sugar free and dairy free cake using nothing but raw and vegan ingredients. This means it doesn’t need to be baked, making it easy to prepare for a party.

The secret ingredient - avocados - are an excellent source of vitamin E, omega-3 and other nutrients that also gives the cake a creamy, smooth texture.

Ok, let’s just get down to business.

Quali-tea

Best matcha I've ever had.

Authentic & High-Quality

I've tried many other brands of Matcha tea and Kenko – Premium Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea is the best. The taste of Kenko Matcha is so uplifting and pure, just like what it says 'delicate sweetness, grassy overtones, and very light astringency' – LOVE IT!

Love this tea

I have been buying this product from Kenko for a number of years now and absolutely love it.
Wouldn't buy from anyone else
Thanks Kenko :-)
