Making the rents eat raw
Making the rents eat raw
Well, I will be seeing my folks this weekend for the first since eating a mostly raw diet. I told them I was going to bring a big salad and they sounded pretty excited. Then I told them I was going to make a raw desert and my mom about flipped out and said how gross that had to be. I’m going to surprise them though. I am currently planning on making Cinnamon Girls from RAWvolution. Does anybody else have any suggestions for an amazing desert I can make that is simple and quick to make? I think they will be shocked when the see how good the desert is and how tasty the salad is without SAD dressings.
If you have any Avocados, I suggest a healing avocado pie.
Yes yes yes…
All you need is about 3-4 medium avos, cacao powder, honey, and optional – 2 stalks of fresh aloe vera (peel aloe, and remove the gel), vanilla bean, maca powder, coconut oil / cacao butter is exquisite.
Directions: in a food processor, whip up the avos and add fresh aloe ( if you wish ) – if you do not have any aloe, perhaps 1/4-1/2C water will make it less dense, then add cacao powder & sweetener and any of the other extras…. Then put this extraordinary mouse into a pie crust or straight into a bowl – then chill in the refrigerator.
This is a most incredible pudding , or pie ( a simple great crust is 1c shredded coconut – ground in processor into a fine consistency , 1c of nuts – 1/2 almonds and 1/2 mac nuts is incredible, a little honey and a pinch of salt! yes yes yes…
You will not regret this one.
Caleb, this dessert is SO easy. It takes minutes to make:
It’s actually more of a topping, but is awesome on a simple fruit salad of bananas, strawberries, blueberries & apples. Mmmm..Or you could put it on top of chocolate mouse made with 1 avocado + 2 tablespoons of cacao powder (or more for desired chocolately flavour) + sweetener to taste, blend and serve.
Just posted Matthew Kenney’s Pumpkin pie recipe for the Thanksgiving recipes thread about 2 minutes ago. My mom ate half the pie! I would top it with some nut cream, served on the side.
Raw â€œPumkinâ€ Pie
For the Crust
1 Â¼ c Pecans
2T agave nectar
1T coconut oilâ€”this is a white solid at natural food stores.
Â¼ t. sea salt
It all goes in the FP-Pulse first. If you want to dehydrate this crust for a â€œcandiedâ€ taste line the pie plate w/ parchment and dehydrate for 48 hrs!!!
For the Filling
Â½ C really raw cashews, soaked
Â¼ C agave nectar
1/3 c coconut oil
Â½ C + 2T carrot juice if you have a juicer or use 2-3 carrots and 1/3C coconut water or some other raw liquid-water is fine-in the food processor.
3/4 t vanilla extract
1/4t sea salt
1 Â½ t cinnamon
1 1/2t nutmeg
1/2T fresh thyme, chopped
Blend everything in the vitamix except the thyme, stir in thyme. Fill the candied or raw tart shell, chill in the freezer overnight. Any extra slices (doubt it) should be wrapped and individually frozen.
Thanks for the suggestions guys. I got so busy I forgot to check back. I ended up making a huge salad with guacamole and Cinnamon Girls from RawVolution. They loved it. Although my dad didn’t like how I made the guac, but mom liked it.
