More Raw Vegan Sattvic Recipes

No chit-chat today, just raw vegan sattvic recipes. Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather and pranic sunshine! :)

Raw Vegan Sattvic Green Monster Smoothie

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 2-3 leaves of romaine lettuce
  • handful of fresh cilantro
  • 2 bananas
  • 1-2 handfuls of frozen fruit
  • 1 cup of water (to make everything blend)
Whiz everything together in the blender until smooth. I was hesitant to use cilantro in my smoothies ... until now. It gave the smoothie a pleasant flavour.

Raw Vegan Sattvic Breakfast Oats (adapted from Love Veggies and Yoga's recipe)

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/3 cup dry oats
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
Combine everything in a covered bowl and refrigerate overnight. I've made this recipe before with chocolate brown rice protein powder (therefore not sattvic as it's processed, not to mention the chocolate). But I like this version even more. It tastes more pure and I didn't even need any sweetener this time - the banana was sweet enough. YUM!

Raw Vegan Sattvic Peachy Chia Seed Puddin'

Remember the raw nut "milk" I made for my Crunch n' Munch cereal? Well this recipe uses that same "milk" to soak the chia seeds (looooOoove that "milk"). Here is the recipe again if you missed that post:

Soak a handful of raisins in 1 cup filtered water. Let soak for a few hours or until the raisins are plump. In a blender combine the soaking water with 2 teaspoons of raw nut butter (I used almond butter). Blend until well combined. Strain if necessary.
  • 1 cup raw nut "milk"
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • few dashes of vanilla extract (alcohol free of course!)
  • fresh peaches, sliced
Combine everything (except the peaches) in a large bowl and mix until all the chia seeds are incorporated. Store in the fridge. After about 10 minutes stir again, making sure the chia seeds didn't lump together. If the mixture seems too thick for your liking, you can add some water to thin it out. Refrigerate for another 2-3 hours or overnight. When ready to eat stir in the peaches. So refreshing and filling!!

Raw Vegan Sattvic Blueberry Cardamom Pudding

  • 1 banana
  • 1 pint of blueberries
  • 4-5 dates, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cardamom
  • water (if needed to blend)
Combine everything in a food processor and blend. Save a few blueberries for garnish. Irresistible, quick and easy!

Raw Vegan Sattvic Lemon Chiffon Pudding (recipe from Choosing Raw)

Yes, another pudding recipe! This one looks suspiciously like the key lime pudding I've made before, but it's actually lemon - the avocado gives it it's greenish colour).
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • honey (sweeten to taste)
You can either combine everything by hand (which is what I did - came out a little lumpy though) or use a food processor or blender. Choosing Raw suggests to let the pudding chill & thicken in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Oops! I didn't see that until just now.
