In this way, I would like to thank Gusti for the award, this wonderful tray from silicone (that's how I got acquainted with "silicones" and I really liked it), then I want to thank my friend Gaby_d for convincing me to share my little knowledge about "cooking". Then I want to I thank my mother who introduced me to the secrets of the kitchen, always telling me that a woman is good at knowing how to cook, so it would be easier for her to reach a man's heart (it turned out to be very fake, so don't be like me ). Last but not least I want to thank the chefs who encouraged me, praised me even when there was not much praise, but they are people with a big heart and appreciate that if I do not cook too much or too well, at least they bring some smiles, so they find inspiration and desire for cooking. I hope I didn't forget to thank you I don't tell anyone, so I'm going to tell you about this cake, nobody will read the novel foileton anyway.

Another story says that it was invented by a skinny pastry chef from Lombardy who cut it out of some leftover biscuits and cream that he never dared to throw away.
The Piedmontese claim that the desert appeared during the First World War. It was prepared by women in northern Italy for wives who went to war, reminding them of their homes and giving them energy to fight, due to their high caffeine content.
Others say that it was prepared for the first time in Siena, on the occasion of the visit that Grand Duke Cosimo III of Medici made to that area. He seems to have been so pleased with the delicious cake that he wanted to recite with him at home, Floren.

Spirulina Ice Cream Recipe
Mint and spirulina ice cream - recipe
This time I chose an ice cream with a refreshing mint flavor. Spirulina powder gives this ice cream an intense green color to match the taste, and comes with many health benefits. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-allergic (allergic rhinitis), anti-anemic, energizing properties, lowering blood pressure and triglycerides and regulating blood sugar levels.
One teaspoon of spirulina powder contains:
& # 8211 Protein (4 g)
& # 8211 Copper (21% of RDA)
& # 8211 Vitamin B1 (11% of RDA)
& # 8211 Vitamin B2 (15% of RDA))
& # 8211 Vitamin B3 (4% of RDA)
& # 8211 Iron (11% of RDA)
Spirulina also contains good amounts of magnesium, potassium and manganese, and small amounts of almost all the nutrients our body needs.
• 200 g of cashews
• 1 banana
• ½ teaspoon of spirulina powder
• mint essence or finely chopped mint leaves
• 2 tablespoons coconut oil
• 1 tablespoon of alcohol (rum, liqueur, vodka, sour cherry, etc.)
• 2 tablespoons of honey
Put the cashew nuts and soak them in a bowl of water (enough to cover them) and leave them in the fridge for 4-6 hours (or overnight).
If the coconut oil is solid (from the fridge), you can melt it on the steam bath. (it should not boil, but just become liquid). After you give the ice cream to cold, the coconut oil will harden and will "coagulate" the whole composition.
Put the puffed cashews (drained water), sliced banana, coconut oil, mint essence and spirulina powder in a blender and mix until you get a creamy and homogeneous composition. Finally add the alcohol and honey, to taste.
Pour the composition into pans, glasses or cups and leave it in the freezer for 3 hours. Alcohol has the role of preventing the formation of ice needles. However, to make it finer, remove the ice cream after 30 minutes of freezing and mix it vigorously with the spoon. Do this twice.
Remove the ice cream from the freezer at least half an hour before consuming it.
You can also add small pieces of dark chocolate (high in cocoa), grated chocolate or a few tablespoons of cocoa powder to this recipe.
