Enjoy some of the best almond recipes on the internet. From simple almond milk to almond pate.
This is definitely more of a summer favorite, but it’s a nice change of pace from pumpkin everything. This easily makes enough for two people (aww) or one person if you are selfish and very hungry.
When it comes to using food for artistic spiritual expression, nothing beats raw dessert creation. Marlie Centawer says, "to me, this raw creation is a living mandala, an Organic Blueberry Soul Mandala Pie to be shared with those you love most." Don't forget to put some soul into your recipes, it's the most important ingredient.
It's an awesome experience making your own cookies knowing exactly what you put in it - no flour, no preservatives only wholesome healthy ingredients made with lots of love! :) These are so easy that you can have your kids make them.
Whose craving something deliciously savory, spicy, filling and richly flavorful tonight for dinner? Love your thyroid with some naturally iodine-rich kelp noodles while the spicy almond miso sauce warms your insides.
More fall flavors to share today! Who doesn't love the caramel apple combo?! It's a classic and even more perfect for this time of year. For literally years I've wanted to create this recipe. I'm so glad I finally did because it's a keeper. I'm going to make it again for Christmas.
This raw dessert is packed with apples all the way around. Dried apples in the crust, fresh apples in the filling, and both fresh and dried apples in the topping. Hey, I'm just trying to take advantage of Autumn's freshness! Mmmm....
When it comes to desserts, rich and decadent doesn’t have to mean unhealthy, at least not in the raw food world. While they are not nearly fat-free, desserts in the raw contain a number of benefits that most baked desserts don’t–one of the most important being that raw food ingredients are minimally processed and in their natural, nutrient-rich state. They are ideal for anyone looking for healthier dessert choices without refined sugars, or for people with special dietary needs, such as allergies to dairy or gluten.
Many raw desserts share similar building blocks: succulent dried fruit (usually dates); ground nuts (usually almonds, cashews and walnuts); a dash of sweetener (usually raw agave nectar); coconut meat, oil or butter; and sometimes a tablespoon or two of cacao powder. Delicious miracles occur when these ingredients are blended, soaked, strained, dehydrated or whipped into delicious pies, cakes, cookies or tarts. A food processor makes putting together raw desserts a cinch (I couldn’t imagine life without one!) and chilling the desserts is a must to help them hold their shape.
My latest raw treat has become one of my all-time favourites: a rich, fudgy brownie that will definitely delight your taste buds. It will likely convince even the most die-hard dessert lover that raw treats can be just as indulgent and decadent as any sugar-laden baked brownie. These raw brownies are dense and chewy just like real brownies, with a top layer that is a thick, silky, chocolate heaven with a hint of coconut. These freeze well, so feel free to make them ahead of time and store them in the freezer until ready to serve.
Kelp noodles and veggies galore drenched in a spicy Asian inspired almond ginger sauce. 100% raw and health promoting! Let the sauce sit with your kelp noodles for at least 8-10 minutes or so before devouring, as this will soften the noodles giving them an absolutely delightful texture! Dinner is coming right up....
Just made a batch of Ulyana's fresh almond milk and are unsure what to do with the leftover pulp? Shes got the answer for you with this lovely almond and rosewater facial mask that will help soothe and hydrate dry or dehydrated skin. Raw honey acts as a mild anti-bacterial as well as water binding humectant, while rose acts to calm inflammation. The almond pulp helps gently soften and exfoliate away any dead skin cells. Leave on for 10-15 minutes until slightly dry, re-moisten and use as a gentle scrub before rinsing away with slightly warm water. Your food is organic, and your skin care should be as well!
Fresh nut milk is a staple on the raw food diet, and sometimes the ease and joy of making this tasty and healthy beverage can easily be forgotten. Well, we're here to remind you just how wonderful it is to blend up your own creamy nut milks from scratch. Make a large enough batch and you'll be all set for at least 4 or 5 days. Make sure to keep your nut milks in an airtight container, preferably glass. Masson jars work great! Serve a dash of milk in your coffee or tea, use over raw cereals, or use as the base of fresh smoothies. Make a flavored milk by blending in a few handfuls of blueberries or a tbs of raw cocoa powder. And don't forget the magic of sun dried vanilla beans, or a drizzle of honey to sweeten.
Need an energy boost in the morning? Chia is known for its energy giving and sustaining properties. In fact it was used by the messenger runners of ancient Native American cultures of the southwest for prolonged endurance. If carrying a small sachet of seeds with you throughout the day doesn't appeal, try out this delicious chia pudding bowl recipe instead topped with almond slivers and juicy berries.
These truffles may or may not give you Peruvian super powers! Inca berries (also known as golden berries) are both sweet and tart, taste similar to cranberries, but are far richer in nutrients. They are a great source of beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, and have 16% protein believe it or not! Adapt this recipe to your tastes by adding a bit more sweetener if you prefer. Either dust with coconut sugar to finish or for even more super powers dunk in a batch of melted raw chocolate.
Christina says that this is "a recipe for the wild souls who live creatively, curiously and sweetly!" This is a beautiful milkshake: sweet, creamy, and nourishing in every way. Anise is a naturally sweet spice with a similar taste to licorice. It is uplifting to the senses and also helps improve digestion.
This a truly gourmet recipe by Laura Dawn that incorporates the vibrant flavors and textures of Mexican themed food, all without dairy, rice, corn, or anything cooked for that matter! Once your tortillas, sour cream, and vegan taco meat are prepared simply whip up a quick salsa or guacamole, pull together a few fresh toppings like cilantro leaves or sprouts, and you'll have a delicious, healthy meal that the whole family will enjoy!
If you've got 5 minutes to spare you have more than enough time to make this refreshingly easy cinnamon nut ice cream by Brandi Rollins. All you need are some pre-frozen bananas, dates, some sweet spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, and your choice of raw nuts on hand. Combine these ingredients into a sweet frozen flurry of goodness! Choose chopped brazil nuts, pecans, or even pistachios for a delightful chunky crunch consistency
If your trying to decide on the perfect raw treat for a special celebration look no further than this recipe by Heather Pace. A dense chocolate almond cake surrounds a light cashew cream filling flavored with real mint essence and maple syrup. Finish your recipe by pouring over the cake a rich, warm chocolate ganache. Serve it up at the next birthday party and watch the smiles cascade around you!
This apricot lavender tart has quite the charisma! Layers of honeyed lavender apricots and vanilla cream filling merge atop a gooey date and nut crust. A nectar-like orange and honey glaze gives this tart the perfect finishing touch. Delicate, sweet, and oh so delicious!
This recipe makes the ultimate quick on the fly raw meal. Throw a fresh green salad onto your plate to accompany this noodle dish and you will be very happy and satisfied! Kelp noodles have a texture that can be a bit odd if you don't prepare them properly. If your kelp noodles are crunchy this is a good indication that they haven't soaked long enough in your sauce. You can also speed up the process a bit by pre-soaking them in an acid like lemon juice or vinegar, which will soften them right now! This recipe really has that spicy Thai flavor and the kelp noodles are the perfect raw substitute for white rice noodles.
