Raspberry Bavarois With A Biscoff & Chocolate Biscuit Base And Raspberry Coulis
This recipe for raspberry bavarois with a Biscoff & chocolate biscuit base and a raspberry coulis on top was inspired by the Keeling’s Great Rewilding campaign, an initiative which aims to reverse the decline in pollinator populations. You can redeem the code from the packaging of their berries to get free Irish wildflower seeds. Each seed pack is full of 30 different Irish wildflower species and will be sure to brighten up gardens across the country as summer approaches.
There’s no denying that bees are important to the ecosystem. “Bees are by far the most important pollinators in Ireland; most pollination on the island is carried out by bees. This is because bees feed their young exclusively on pollen, so they are entirely focused on collecting it from flowers to bring back to their nests. In Ireland, we have 98 different types of bee: the honeybee, 20 different bumblebees and 77 different solitary bees (“solitary” meaning they work alone and do not form colonies). The variety in bees and other pollinators is important, as it helps to maximise pollination.
At Keelings, we love to grow, but that wouldn’t be possible without the help of our pollinator friends. Join us in The Great Rewilding as we embark on a journey to reverse the declining population of bees and other pollinators in Ireland. By encouraging wildflowers to grow locally, our small changes can make a big difference. Whether you have just a few window boxes, a full garden, or are involved in a community garden, there are loads of actions you can take to help us on our rewilding journey. So, join in and grow wild with us!”
I wanted to support the campaign and decided to create this raspberry bavarois recipe that you can make using Keeling’s raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries which should give you the maximum amount of redemption codes allowed per household. Helping the bees and eating a delicious cake? Win-win!
