This mousse is packed with gifts from the jungle. The avocado, coconut, and cocao provide antioxidants such as B vitamins and vitamin C, E, A, and K, minerals like magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron, tons of fiber, healthy mono unsaturated fats, as well as Omega 3s and 6s, and the anti-fungal, metabolism-boosting lauric acid. The cacao even has a chemical called phenylethylamine that is a known mood elevator. Even those who aren't fans of avocado will love it and will never guess that this chocolaty concoction is made without dairy. My husband requests this dessert routinely; I am always happy to accommodate him due to the speediness of the preparation process, ease of clean up, and because I love him.
This recipe has some ingredients you might not expect, but they really do complement one another. If you cannot find coconut butter, you can substitute coconut oil (just be sure to use cold-pressed and not one that is hydrogenated). Coconut butter is solid at room temperature and can get quite hard when it is cold. To make the butter easier to scoop and measure gently warm it by placing the jar in a pot of hot water for a few minutes. I list 2-3 tablespoons of agave because unlike my husband--who has a major sweet tooth--I prefer a little less sweetener. I usually scoop some out of the processor for myself after 1 tablespoon of agave and then add extra sweetener for him.

I have in my hands the most delicious recipe for an amazing pre or post-workout shake. This smoothie works great for a quick burst of long lasting energy, combining the powerful health benefits of superfoods with carbohydrates and protein. The maca helps to temper and balance out your adrenals, the bananas are an excellent source of quickly digestible carbohydrates (40-60 minutes), the lucuma powder gives the shake a nice caramel flavor, and the almond milk makes it super creamy and smooth. Plus, the cinnamon aids in digestion and gives it a nice little send off. What could be better?
These Sweetheart Vanilla Macaroons dipped in Dark Chocolate are the perfect raw vegan Valentine’s Day treat.

Vanilla = a perfect Valentine’s Day!
Hi this is a amazing recipe I yust invented today after my 10 km yogging action.
i strictly recommend to yust use organic fruits first of all it`s all about the frequency BABY...but secondly because I am from time to time really lazy it is the best to deplug the stem of the kiwi and trough it in the high speed blender right away ;-) with out peeling. Sidenote most of the vitamins in fruits are directly underneath the peel. SO ....
