Happy St. Patricks Day everyone! Here is my favorite Irish treat reinvented to be tastier and healthier than ever. Based on Nigella Lawson’s famous cake, but with a tan/mocha cream cheese icing instead of white because… the foam on a Guinness cake should match the foam on a beautiful pint of Guinness Beer.

Do not underestimate the power of this treat. Organic oranges are in season right NOW and in a week or two you’ll have missed the opportunity to experience this delight until February 2018!┬áIn season oranges are unlike oranges at any other time of year. They are bright, sweet, and bursting with flavor. Combine that with a bite of pecan and you have one of the simplest healthiest treats on the planet.

I got this recipe from my dear friend Susan when the boys were small and I’ve served it to countless people over the years, they’ve all loved it. It’s easy to make and I often double it because it goes so quickly. I just sent 4 jars home with the boys’ friends when they spent the night after a concert. This makes a great quick breakfast, a snack, or after dinner dessert with milk. Let me know what you think.

As a rule I don’t juice, it seems to me a huge waste of perfectly good vegetables. Instead I blend up some veggies in my high speed blender with a little apple and fresh lime. It’s easier than juicing, faster and you get the benefit of the whole plant! If my veggies are washed and in my bin in the fridge it takes about 1 minute to whip this up.

These treats are easy to make and all the ingredients are easy to have on hand. Just nuts, raisins, nut butter! Even better, they are vegan, paleo, whole30, and vegetarian friendly.
