RAW Key Lime Pie

March 7, 2015

Ok, I know what you’re thinking…avocados = key lime pie????  Yes, its true, it can be done.   But you have to get GOOD avocados.  If they are brown and mushy, this recipe will not work.  You will also need a food processor for this – but if you’re into making raw foods, you have one anyway.  This dessert is SO easy to make and I recommend using single-serving pie tins and wrapping them with plastic after you make them rather than making one big pie (unless you’re making it for a group of people to eat at once), that way you aren’t exposing the pie to air every time you take a piece…because we all know that avocados turn brown after a few days.  But something tells me this won’t last a few days once you realize how good it is.

If you’re new to the concept of raw foods, check the home page for links to really great raw sites and I’ve even got some info posted on there as well!  You can always email me for answers to questions, too!  This is the best recipe for someone who trying to cut sweets but can’t seem to do it.  There is no bad fat in this recipe, so you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it!  Avocado and coconut oil are GREAT for you and this will leave you feeling satisfied and guilt-free!

Raw “sour cream” dip

March 7, 2015

Here’s another great raw foods recipe! This is an amazing twist on the traditional sour cream and herb dip for fresh veggies. Tastes similar to ranch dressing, but as you can see, its not only vegan, but raw too! You can use it as a spread as well – its great with all sorts of things. Make a double batch and keep it in the fridge – it will last about 7 days before it starts to get funky.
