Just a few days ago it was my twenty-third birthday. This year, I wanted to treat myself to this three-layered chocolate cake. Would you believe that it’s paleo? It’s gluten and grain-free, dairy-free, and white sugar-free which makes this cake compatible for people with those common food allergies.
Growing up, I loved the traditional cookie cake, brownies, Oreo pie, you name it. I haven’t always ate like this. But, since detoxing and eating more clean over the years, those types of desserts give me a tummy-ache, and a headache. Most of the processed treats you find in the grocery store today are full of refined and artificial sweeteners, toxic additives, GMO wheat flour, all of the food-like ingredients that are making us all fat and sick.
This cake is just about as pure as pure gets! Keep in mind it is still high in sugar, so it’s obviously not meant to be eaten on the regular, but be sure to try it out when you’re in the need for an occasional sweet chocolate treat!
The ingredients in this cake are full of anti-aging benefits, including antioxidants, good-healthy fats, and even lots of minerals! (especially from the avocado frosting!)
For the avocado frosting recipe — don’t worry! You can’t taste the avocado! It just makes it creamy and healthy! If you have a food processor, feel free to use it whilst making your frosting. I didn’t bother with it and it came out just fine. There were a few tiny avocado pieces, but not any trouble at all.
