I was in the middle of making carrot cake when I was overcome with the desire to create a pineapple cake instead. So, this is essentially carrot cake icing with a bunch of stuff added. It was so easy, and it turned out wonderful! A great tropical breakfast or dessert! Very sweet!
A smooth, frothy, exotic golden smoothie !
Orange brings out the shy flavour of the honeydew melon, a perfect foil for the strong frothy pinapple. Kaki adds a touch of the exotic.
Incidentally, this is the first smoothie liked by my very picky home-chef husband, even though I gave him lots of delicious smoothies to taste. So, ItÂ´ got to be delicious ! ;-)
My non-raw husband made this as a birthday surprise for me :-)
He wanted to make something a bit exotic and middle-eastern, something sweet and tangy at the same time. The honeydew melon and dates give a sweet touch, while the chives give a bit of spice.
This recipe was a filling and delicious surprise for me !
Who knew you can make something that so resembles the classic? And without the use of nut milk too! And yet, the first time I tasted this with cinnamon, I thought, “Hmmm… tastes like Christmas.” And my grandmother said, “Hmmm… if a person didn’t know better, they would think this is watered down cow milk.” To which I replied, “Like skim milk?!”
tahiti is an awesome place to be raw… i think its made for the raw life style. i drank fresh coconut water straight of the tree everyday, bliss!
anyway, this recipe is adapted from something i remember reading on the blog that jinjie (of the garden diet) wrote…
