It's my Mum's birthday today, and since she has to follow a special restricted diet to seize control of her thyroid disease at the moment, I decided to surprise her with a proper fancy cake she can actually enjoy. The outcome: a creamy, super-healthy and super-yummy mango "cheesecake" ! (and a happy momma :))

Preparation time: 30 mins + 7-8 hours cooling time
Main ingredients: cashews, mangoes, dates 
difficulty level: easy, fool-proof
makes: 1 cake
suitable for: vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free, paleo, raw food, and delicious "even so"  : )

What?! A Cheesecake without cheese? No flour, no milk, no eggs and no baking at all? And that's supposed to be yummy? Yep, you've heard right. If you are interested in a raw vegan and 100% healthy piece of pure delight, then stay tuned for this delicious mango nut cream cake!

[scroll down for dwarves]

Hello there, beautiful! (too soon?)

Yes, I have been browsing through The Tumblr again. Shame on me. No idea what I was actually looking for, but I happened to stumble - tumble - upon this tag that said: REBLOG AND ANSWER. So that's what I'm gonna do.

Since you don't know me, you probably don't really care too much about my answers, but personally I enjoy reading tags like that and wondering what my own answers would be, so maybe you take pleasure in answering the following questions yourself!

As to the rest, take this as a kind of profile or personal introduction of myself. 

1. Last kiss: exactly two and a half weeks ago 
(why is this the very first question? is that really the most important thing you wanna know about a person? #justsayin)

2. Last phone call: one of my closest friends Emily

3. Last text message: my friend David

4. Last song you listened to: I Hate Everyone – Get Set Go (such a cheerful song! Or at least, it cheers me up)

5. Last time you cried: huh. Now that you mention it: I don't even remember. Usually I cry quite frequently, just as an emotional outlet or something, but the last time I really cried was early in May, I think
