Prune Smoothie

 

Here is another simple smoothie recipe. Prunes added an extra nice taste. My kids loved it, and so did I.

Eating a one-quarter-cup serving of prunes, or about four prunes, provide you with 12 percent of the daily value for fiber, 32 percent of the DV for vitamin K, 9 percent of the DV for potassium and 27 percent of the daily value of vitamin A.

 

 

Prune Smoothie

To make this smoothie, you will need:

1 ripe Mango

10 ripe bananas

6 prunes (soaked in water overnight)

1 cup of water

 

Preparation:

Put all ingredients into your Vitamix. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and slowly increase the speed to 10, then to High.
Use tamper to press the ingredients into the blades if required.
Blend for about 1 minute or until smoothie reaches desired consistency.

Serve and enjoy!

Raw Fruity Cookies

 

Last weekend Ben and I decided to prepare some healthy cookies. We have had a dehydrator for a while now, but we don’t use it very often. So the first time we tried to make sweet raw dehydrated fruit cookies. They turned out very well and were gone within a day.

 

Fruity Cookies

 

To make cookies you will need:

6 apples

2 persimmons (Sharon Fruit, Kaki)

3 bananas

 

For toppings we used : dried coconut, sunflower seeds, bee pollen, and grated apple.

 

Preparation:

Add apples, persimmons and bananas into your food processor and process till you get an even paste.

Pour the paste onto your Teflex Sheet like you would make small pancakes.

Then sprinkle your cookies with different toppings.

Put your dehydrator on 41 degrees and dehydrate for 4 to 6 hours. After 2-3 hours I removed the Teflex sheets to allow more air circulation.

Enjoy!

Today I got a new kitchen tool – Spiralizer. It’s a very nice little machine to instantly get beautiful spaghetti, spirals or ribbons. It can make spiral shapes and spaghetti from all firm-fleshed fruit and vegetables. So my today’s creation is delicious spaghetti salad.

Raw Spaghetti Salad

For this salad you need:

1 zucchini

1 cucumber

Sprouted Alfa Alfa

Sprouted Aduki beans

2 tomatoes

Scallions

Preparation:

Spiralize zucchini, cucumber and tomatoes.Add them to your favorite salad dish. Chop finely scallions , add sprouted Alfa Alfa and sprouted Aduki beans. Season with salt and pepper (optional).

Hello , my beautiful friends this evening I would like to share a recipe for a raw beetroot hummus-its an amazing combination and it looks so bright on a nice summer day.

Hummus makes an ideal dip and its plain form tastes amazing with nearly everything including toast. Its healthy and delicious.

Here is what you need.

  • 1/2 pound dried chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup bean cooking liquid or water
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon+ ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup tahini, stir it well before measuring it out!
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (normally 1 1/2 lemons – use fresh!)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon salt

 

This hummus is also excellent with different spices – chili powder, coriander, a bit of cayenne, some mint – all delicious! Try out different things to see what you like.

 

Also keep in mind that the tahini really adds to the texture and flavor. If you don’t like tahini or don’t have any on hand, add more olive oil and cooking liquid, and a bit more salt.

Once you have made the hummus its very simple to add beetroot to it. Simply peel one small raw beetroot season to taste and blend in the Vitamix if you have one, if not an ordinary blender will do the job. After you have done that add 50 grams of cooked chickpeas and some of the hummus , that you made. Create your preferred texture and enjoy.

Here is an idea to serve it with rye and hemp bread. Its great with green salad and a few olives.

To make an avocado and spring green version of this hummus you would need 1 ripe avocado and the juice from a few leaves of spring greens , you can also use spinach , but the darker the green the better.You can also blend the spring green leaves in the Vitamix or in an ordinary blender and then sieve the liquid for a smooth finish.

Similar to the beetroot hummus. Add the avocado , juice from a ½ lemon and and the spring green in the blender with about 100 gr of cooked chickpeas , season to taste and blend. Then add the remaining of the plain hummus . Serve and enjoy!

Thank you very much for all your love and support,

Lots of love

My intention is to sprout them and enjoy them that way. This is totally optional for anybody who is doing any raw food detox and the main thing is to go with the flow . Listen to your body and intuition , focus on nourishment and health and take every day as it comes.
