Yay! I like the month of May.
This is a cacao mint chip smoothie I made one morning.
Bright green from the chlorella tablets and filled
with raw protein and happy tummy mint.
- Almond milk
- Mint leaves
- Chlorella or Spirulina tablets
- protein powder
- cacao chips
- (optional) 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
For dessert one night I made coconut frozen yogurt.
blend ingredients and freeze.
simple and easy ice cream-like treat!
- homemade coconut yogurt
- coconut water
- frozen mango
- frozen bananas
I served it with fresh organic pineapple skewers
Banana soft serve is about the easiest and fastest raw dessert you could make.
Blend frozen bananas with a little touch of almond milk and whatever fruit you would like. A touch of vanilla won't hurt either! Blend until a yogurt-like consistency. I love making strawberry flavor.
This is a strawberry cashew cheesecake I made from this recipe. Instead of rolling into cake pops (which was a disaster in the making) I made it into a sheet cake (so much easier!) I keep this in the freezer and defrost a slice whenever the craving hits. The strawberry coating (top layer) is so yummy.
It may seem like I've been eating all sweets, but I promise you that is not true...here are some more savory items I've enjoyed.
I have been making a lot of bowl dinners lately - it's just so easy when you are short on time! Pick a grain --> quinoa, rice or millet. Top it with massaged raw kale and lots of veggies and top with a yummy dressing. Here I made black quinoa, avocado, butternut squash, tofu, kale, green onions and slivered almonds.
I've been trying to steer my boyfriend away from bacon and eggs in the morning, so I've been incorporating more veggies and nutritious elements into the mix. One morning I made a hash from shredded sweet potatoes, tomatoes, vegan breakfast Sunshine burger and diced peppers. I smeared fresh avocado onto a sprouted tortilla and topped with green onions.
Another morning I made him a layered parfait of homemade coconut yogurt,
tropical granola and fresh strawberries.
I found an organic bakery near my office that has Brooklyn Kombucha on Tap. How cool, right? They change up flavors often, so I will be visiting a lot to try them out. I don't know why, but it tastes so much better and more fresh from the tap rather then from the bottle. I wish I could have a tap in my house ;)
I had a colonoscopy last Friday (more about that in next post) so a few days before I did a juice cleanse to help clean out more naturally. I wish my fridge always had this many fresh juices in it!
After a few days of not eating I was HUNGRY!
I got takeout from my favorite raw restaurant.
They had a special appetizer of live lettuce tacos with cashew chive jalepeno cheese, guacamole, jicama, salsa and sunflower crumble. So, so divine!!!
I also ordered a raw kale salad with cilantro dressing, crunchy veggies, hemp seeds, nutritional yeast and sunflower seeds.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
