My Favorite Easy Raw Treats

I thought I'd post a couple of my favorite recipes. I love treats and goodies, so in order to maintain a certain amount of raw foods in my diet and get nutrition and not just calories, I have a few tricks up my sleeve *U*
*With all these recipes I don't measure much. You just add or subtract to adjust for taste and textures.
Double D Raw Detox Breakfast Smoothie~
(This is what Doug and I have for breakfast in the mornings)
I use the Vita Mix for this recipe
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1 cup mixed berries- any will do, I use the purples, reds, and blues
1 cup very cold water
1/4 cup flax seeds
Blend until smooth and pour into glasses to enjoy.

Coco Nutty Halvah~

I use a coffee grinder for this recipe

2 grinders full of pureed raw (the white) sesame seeds

1 grinder full of pureed coconut (I use the bags of shaved I get from the health food store)

1/2 cup almond butter (or coconut spread)

1/2 cup carob powder

1/2 cup unprocessed coconut oil

3 TB of raw honey (or more, to taste)

* you can also add cocao nibs

mix this all up by hand or food processor. It's thick. Spread into a pan and make "brownies" or roll into balls. Put tem in the fridge or even freeze if you like. These are super yummy and kick the candy/chocolate cravings. Besides, they are chock full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

*Don't worry about measurements so much. Just get the consistency and flavor you like.


Raw Ice cream~

I use a food processor for this recipe~

3 Frozen bananas

1/2 cup raw goat milk or coconut milk, or even almond milk

This is the base- mix until smooth. Now, you can add all sorts of goodies!

Mix in cocoa powder or carob powder for chocolate icecream.


cocao nibs

almonds or other nuts

nut butter

frozen fruits like berries, sliced peaches, etc.

This is the most satisfying treat. I LOVE it!

If you like it sweet, add stevia powder or raw honey


Kefir Smoothie~

(I use the Vita-Mix for this)

(For 2)

2 cups raw goat milk kefir

1/4 cup flax seeds

1/4 cup cocnut oil

1 cup mixed berries

2 frozen bananas

Blend until smooth

*If you like, add carob powder, coao nibs, or nut butter

* You can use any kind of frozen fruit- in season we enjoy cherries, peaches, apricots, etc.
