I am trying to really cut down on the amount of nuts and oils in my diet, especially since I can tell I have gained weight with all the nut-based Christmas goodies I was eating. So since I couldn't find a salad dressing in any of my recipe books without either a bunch of nuts or a cup of olive oil, I came up with this one tonight and it was a hit! The only fat is from the avocado and one Tbsp of coconut oil, so it's a great low-fat option. Plus coconut oil is a medium-chain triglyceride which actually helps burn fat! Enjoy!
Well, after 2 weeks of slaving away at school, I’m finally catching a break. To enjoy this little break, I decided to make myself one of the treats that I’ve been missing most after coming back from India. It’s a dessert called rasmalai (literally meaning the “juice of cream”). Traditionally, rasmalai is a pretty labor intensive dish to make, but you all know how much disdain I have for long preparation times. So this is pretty much as simple as it gets. No muss, no fuss, just a delicious dessert for everybody to enjoy. Even my dad (a general anti-raw guy), gave me a wide-eyes “Wow” when he ate these. So try it out, and tell me what you think!

I discovered this while on a detox diet and couldn't use any type of fat, salt or seasoning.
You'll find it hard to believe there is no salt or sugar, and the screaming red-orange color adds a lot of excitement!
Note: I may never have discovered this had I not had an old bag of Goji Berries in my fridge drawer, which I'd tried some time ago and abandoned!
