Wild Blueberry Coconut Pudding

Wild blueberries are significantly more nutrient dense than their cultivated cousins and unlike other fruits, maintain their magnificence even frozen.  This pudding took minutes to make and is one of my favorite dishes. This was breakfast today.

Add some bananas and dried coconut for a decadent, delicious, and nutritious treat. As each coconut varies in volume and ratio, meat:water, you’ll have to play it by ear with regard to chia, cashews and additional water, if needed.

Please comment if you made and enjoyed this recipe!

Fabulous Living Oatmeal

This is the BEST oatmeal we've ever tasted. It's nothing like cooked, mushy oatmeal. The texture and flavor are fantastic. Delicious and nutritious!!!! A nice hearty breakfast when you are craving something more than a smoothie. Sticks to your ribs AND energizes! Great way to send your kids off to school!

Mocha Almond Fudge Crunch - Breakfast Cereal

I LOVE sprouted quinoa. Once it's sprouted (which is very simple and only takes a day or so), this recipe is quick and easy! See below for sprouting instructions.

Note- don't like mocha? Eliminate coffee extract. Want to avoid cacao? Replace it with carob powder.

Apple Walnut Muffins - Gluten-Free

Served warm from the dehydrator, these muffins are very reminiscent of the SAD (Standard American Diet - aka BAKED) version. I didn't make them too sweet, and sunflower seeds can have a little bite, so sweeten according to your taste. I love the "Autumn Spiciness." Drizzle with raw honey, cashew cream, or your favorite fruit "syrup"...oh, and some raw ice cream - HEAVEN!

Muesli Breakfast Mix - "Cream of NO-Wheat"

I'm in LOVE with this delicious blend. Just so you know, some of these ingredients are not raw. Feel free to substitute with a sprouted/dehydrated version. It's Winter on the East Coast, and popped Amaranth and toasted sesame seeds bring out the flavor in this mix! This is one of the tastiest mixes I've made and a favorite in our home.

Persimmon Pudding/ No-Pumpkin Pie

NOT a fan of pumpkin pie! Sorry, it goes back to my childhood when one of my Aunties, prepared a pumpkin pie. I had never tasted one, but was willing to give it a shot, and said I would "try" a taste. My cousin said she would "have" a taste. Apparently, my Aunt saw a huge difference between "trying" and "having", and when my nose curled, and I almost gagged, I was excused from eating my slice. My cousin, however, was told she couldn't leave the table until she finished hers. I will never forget the look on her face. For years no one in my family could stand to eat pumpkin pie. So....this is about as close as I'm ever going to get, and honestly, this was DELISH!

Deep Cleanse Smoothie

For some reason, I've only juiced parsley, and never thought to use it in a smoothie, until I was at a friend's house the other night, and she prepared one for us. It was great and super refreshing. Parsley is one of the most popular herbs and so often used for seasoning or garnish, that people overlook the amazing healing properties of this vibrant ingredient.

Chocolate-Raspberry-Vanilla Pudding Parfait (Raw Vegan)

It is 85 degrees F and I'm not feeling very hungry for dinner, so I created this fabulous triple pudding parfait. By using either fruit (fresh or frozen), or dried fruit powder, you can prepare this in almost any flavor. I chose Chocolate, Raspberry and Vanilla.

This is not an exact science. If you don't have young Thai coconuts, you can use a combo of dried coconut, cashews and chia. Adjust water as needed too. Don't be afraid to experiment until you get the consistency you desire. My parfait is chillin' in the fridge and I can't wait to dig in...

Green Mint Coffee Choco Chip Smoothie

I love the flavor of coffee, chocolate and mint, so why not put them all together in a smoothie? Oh yeah! Delightful! I happen to have fresh mint growing all over my garden, so why not use it? Just a touch of mint adds a remarkable, light tone to this fabulous breakfast!

Glazed Cinnamon & Spice Cake/Donuts

Hold onto your hats ladies and gents, and hear me out on this one. No curling up your noses...promise? Sprouted chickpeas work wonders in living brownies, cookies and cakes. The texture is fantastic! Yes, their flavor can be a bit overwhelming,  so you have to get creative and find ways to bring out the yummy flavor tones. Something spicy like cinnamon and nutmeg work quite well. I recently posted my RT's Deep Chocolate Decadencealso made with sprouts....do I hear an OINK?

Papaya-Banana Swirl Ice Cream

OHhhhhhhhhh HEAVENLY GOODNESS! A friend of mine blessed me with her old Champion Juicer. Just prior to giving it to me, it was accidentally dropped (and survived), but needed a few replacement parts that had cracked. I managed to find a really good deal on some of the parts, including a BLANK PLATE (for under $3.00) at Amazon.

I had NO idea what I was missing!!!! Such creamy deliciousness

"Fruit Loops" Smoothie

I created a green smoothie for W, but did not tell him what was in it...the first words out of his mouth were "Fruit Loops!" I took a sip...and he was right on! What started out as a "creamsicle" flavor, turned into a smoothie that is reminiscent of Fruit Loops. While I used Medicine Flower concentrated extracts to jazz up my smoothie, feel free to use fresh fruit or other extracts. I have fun with the variety that flavors offer, but you can substitute any of these ingredients with your favorites.

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

I've posted a Mint Chocolate Chip smoothie previously using almond milk and real mint. Today, I created a similar smoothie with a few different ingredients. This is why I love Medicine Flower extracts so much! You can create an amazing variety of flavors that titillate your taste buds. The flavors are SUPER concentrated, so you only need a couple of drops!

Award Winning - Chewy Chocolate Coco-Nutty Super Puffs

I was traveling to visit my kids and granddaughter, and grabbed a bunch of ingredients, blended them up, and dehydrated them so I'd have a healthy snack to munch on while away. My daughter ended up eating most of them after her rigorous work-outs. I ended up leaving them behind for her to finish up. We stored them in the freezer, and found they tasted even better that way! As always, many of the ingredients can be eliminated or replaced. Let your creative juices flow...Update: So excited to be awarded a gift certificate by Nutiva for this recipe.

Super Green Ginger Snap Smoothie

For something a little different, I created this Ginger Snap Smoothie.

I honestly can't say its my all time favorite, but it's very tasty and W seemed to REALLY liked it a lot, and it was a nice change.

Green Chocolate N' Cherry Smoothie

Gotta love smoothies - The variety, texture, and endless possibilities never cease to amaze me. As I continue to learn more about ingredients, my raw food palette grows, right along with my raw food palate!!! This recipe can be made with fresh or frozen cherries, but if you don't have them (I didn't), you can use my favorite concentrated ingredient - Medicine Flower Extracts. I added a whopping THREE drops of MorelloCherry extract, and it was absolutely PERFECT!

Green Smoothie Mish Mash

I've been juicing the past few days and W wanted a smoothie today, so I literally threw this together. I was surprised at how yummy it tasted. After creating this, I added some cacao powder to a bit of the mixture and layered it and roughly mixed it by hand, creating a camouflage smoothie..see below. This was really good, but I can't believe how heavy it felt after several days of juicing..wow!

Chocolate Peanutbutter(less) Smoothie

Sometimes you feel like a nut...sometimes you don't. Enhancing this recipe with a drop or two of my favorite Medicine Flower flavor extracts, makes all the difference in the world. Create a "peanut" smoothie without the nuts!!! When I'm in the mood for something different, I'm just so grateful for the amazing concentrated flavors created by Medicine Flower.

Living Apple Pancakes

I saw these on The Chew as a cooked recipe a few weeks ago and decided to make a raw version. They came out fabulous and could be served as either a breakfast or dessert (topped with raw ice cream). YUMMMMERS!

Red Raspberry Smoothie - Got Raspberries? NOPE!


No Raspberries? That's okay! While running around trying to find a dress for my daughter's wedding...oops, we ran out of greens and fruit for our morning smoothies. I decided to try something new and where I normally use coconut water and meat as a smoothie base, I set the coconut meat aside for another recipe by freezing it, and just using the coconut water.
