With three gourmet twists, here's a non-alcoholic, splashy combo of margarita and lemonade for a nutrilicious thirst quencher.
From the Dianne's Delectables Kitchen...
I had a hard time finding a pizza crust recipe that didnt call for either seeds or nuts! So I made one! The consistency is a little bit flimsy if you dont cook it as long- perfect for a taco shell ;)
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 calledphenylethylamine 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 gentlywarm 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.

Corn on the cob is amazing raw! This recipe teams it with avocado and a hint of chilli to create a smooth, warming, satisfying salsa. You can eat it on its own, create filled pockets by wrapping it in lettuce leaves, fill ppeppers with (as per my picture) or serve with dehydrated crackers and wraps.
