Avocado Ice Cream & Strawberry Cheesecake

 
Kyrious Avocado Ice Cream Strawberry Cheesecake

Last week, I had the opportunity to come together for a Women of Weed Collab here in San Francisco. The theme of our dishes were light infusions with a focus on superfoods- right up my alley. The superfoods that I wanted to highlight in this raw vegan cake were goji berries in the strawberry layer and chlorella in the avocado layer. My focus for building this cake with these superfoods were celebrating the idea of having "cake for breakfast" with beautifying superfoods, perfect for a women of weed bruncheon.
