Volleyball in the Garden! April 29

This afternoon we enjoyed the lovely, sunny weather out in the garden with a friendly game of volleyball.

Fourteen students joined in the match at different times, playing over two 12-minute halves.

The competition was tough with the scores even for almost the whole game, making it a great game to watch for the many spectators on the sidelines!

At full time, the scores were tied 36-36! An extra point was played, with the team who wins that point wins the game. The players on both sides were determined , but at the end of the day there can only be one winning team. Congratulations to Natsumi, Inola, Floriant, Abel, Marco and Estelle! Enjoy the well deserved beer! 🙂

Graduation! April 29

Today we have just two students graduating from Lexis Byron Bay – Ryoma and Ravi.

Ryoma  is from Japan and is graduating from Kristy and Kathleen’s Pre-Intermediate class. He has been an active student in class and has improved his English during his time here. Ryoma’s lovely nature and sense of humour were valued both in the classroom and out. His plans for the future are unknown (even for tomorrow!) but we wish him the very best with wherever the waves take him!

Ravi is from Brazil and graduates from Kristy and Kathleen’s Pre-Intermediate class. He made excellent progress with his English and is able to communicate very well with people from all different backgrounds. He was a positive, outgoing and compassionate student in class. All the best, Ravi!

We also had the final draw for attending the FREE English Classes this week. Yuki was the lucky winner of the 6-pack of Coopers beer and a packet of TimTams!

Making Raw Desserts! April 27

Today we spent some time in the kitchen preparing possibly the most delicious raw dessert  ever made in the Lexis kitchen!

IMG_3307

Eleven Lexis students helped prepare the ingredients to make a base with layers of coconut and chocolate, topped off with another layer of chocolate . YUMMY! ❤

The hardest part of making raw dessert – being patient. The mini tarts are sitting in the freezer (safe from thrifty fingers – I’m looking at you, Santi!) overnight for an excellent morning break snack tomorrow!

IMG_3275

If you want to try this yourself, here is the recipe:

RAW LAYERED CHOCOLATE AND COCONUT TART

INGREDIENTS:

For the Base

1 cup Almond Meal

½ cup Peanut Butter

3/4 cup Coconut Oil

1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut

½  cup Sweetener

1 tsp Vanilla

¼ tsp Salt

 

For the Layers
2 Tbsp Cocoa

1 cup Tbsp Sweetener

2 cups Peanut Butter

1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut

1/2 cup Coconut Oil

1½ tsp Vanilla

½ tsp Salt

 

For the Topping

1 block Chocolate

3 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Handful of Desiccated Coconut

 

METHOD:

  • Prepare a cake or muffin pan lined with baking paper. Place in the freezer while preparing base.

For the Base

  • Put all ingredients in a bowl, mixing until well combined. The mixture should be slightly sticky and hold its shape easily. Add more almond meal if it is too sticky or more oil if it is too dry.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan and press down, covering the bottom of the pan evenly. Return pan to the freezer while preparing the layers.

For the Layers

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl, except the cocoa. The mixture should be thick like a paste. Add more peanut butter if it is too runny or more oil if it is too dry.
  • Split the mixture in two, putting one half in a separate bowl.
  • From one bowl, spoon about 1/3 of the mixture into the pan, spreading it across the base until it is covered in an even layer.
  • Return pan to the freezer to allow that layer to set.
  • Meanwhile, add cocoa and the extra sweetener to the other bowl of mixture, stirring until well combined. Spoon about 1/3 of this chocolate mixture into the pan over the first layer.
  • Return pan to the freezer until firm, then repeat the process alternating the layers, allowing some time in between each layer for the layers to firm up in the freezer.

For the Topping

  • Gently melt the chocolate and oil together in a pan over low heat, stirring to combine.
  • Pour over the top of the layers then sprinkle with coconut.
  • Return to the freezer until the topping has hardened (at least 3 hours or overnight).
  • Slice and enjoy! 🙂
