Raw Vegan Treats from Wise Cicada
Hidden away downstairs from the hustle and bustle of Broadway, Newmarket, you'll find the cafe and whole foods super-store, Wise Cicada. The food is all organic and vegan, including a salad bar, juice bar and desserts. After a day of walking around the shops with my Mum, we needed a pick-me-up and Wise Cicada was the perfect spot.
We chose the Protein Bar, the Crème Caramel & Tiramisu. The protein bar looks pretty with raspberry on top, and is a powerhouse of nutrients including almonds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, protein powder & flaxseed. This one really keeps you satisfied.
The crème caramel was my favourite (no surprise since I am a caramel fiend), and is made up of cashews, almonds, dates & agave. All the taste and richness of caramel, while still being nourishing for your body. I could seriously eat this every day.
The tiramisu contains almonds, dates, cashews, cacao & espresso and was a delicious end to our dessert sitting. Just the right balance of sweet and bitter. I don't drink coffee at all (never have) but I enjoyed this dessert.
I'm looking forward to returning to Wise Cicada soon, to check out their savoury menu which includes matcha pancakes, mushroom stroganoff & a kimchi beet burger.
