RAWesome Good Eats

Breakfast: Banana Blueberry Mint Raw Smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 2-3 handfuls of fresh blueberries
  • a few sprigs of fresh mint
  • water
Mix in the blender until smooth. Add some ice cubes if its a hot morning.

Lunch: Raw Cuke Soup (Again!! Can you tell how much I love this recipe?)
This week I only used 1 cucumber (instead of 2 as recommended in the recipe). It made the soup a bit thicker and creamier. Garnished with parsley and freshly ground black pepper.

Dinner: Raw Cheese Wraps ("cheese" recipe from gone raw)

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 large orange or red bell pepper
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon onion
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • water
Put all the ingredients in a blender. Add enough water to just cover the cashews, and blend. You can vary the thickness by using more or less water.
To assemble the wraps, place a large dollop of the "cheese" in a lettuce leaf. Top with whatever strikes your fancy. I mixed the "cheese" with chopped celery and topped it with sliced tomatoes and freshly ground black pepper. YUM!

Dessert: Raw Chocolate Mousse (recipe from We Like It Raw)

Yes, it's another pie recipe with the pie crust left out. I substituted raw cacao for the carob, and since I didn't make an entire pie, I halved the original recipe.
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup carob (or cacao)
  • 1/4 cup raw sweetener (I used honey)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 cup fresh young coconut
  • pinch of salt
Combine everything in a blender until smooth. Pour into dessert cups and garnish with dried coconut. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
