With only 5 ingredients no one has an excuse not to make this ice cream! And why would you need one anyways, the photo alone is enough to inspire it's creation. Dreamy, rich, naturally sweet coconut milk combines with fresh organic berries, maple syrup, a touch of lemon juice and a bit of xanthum gum (it's a seaweed thickening agent- don't be afraid!) If you don't like using organic coconut milk from a can you can make your own by blending coconut meat and water until it is smooth, thick, and creamy. Remember, if you don't have an ice cream maker simply freeze mixture in ice cube trays until semi-solid and blend in a blender or food processor!
Ice cream season is in full swing and what better way to welcome in the heat than with a totally simple (yet amped up in flavor) banana soft serve recipe complete with fresh succulent strawberry sauce.

These added ingredients bring a summery, refreshing flavor and the poppy seeds add a fun crunch.
A fabulously delicious, versatile and filling raw breakfast that will definitely give you the nutritional oomph to get through the day until lunch time. By soaking the oats we enhance their digestibility and nutrition, and also create a soft texture without the use of heat. Once you combine the soaked oats with chia, brazil nut milk, and a dash of lemon juice you can layer this mixture with this luscious, sweetly spiced strawberry sauce for a unique breakfast treat! Use the leftover sauce with pancakes, yogurt, ice cream, or layered with raw almond or cashew butter on sprouted spread. Sarah Britton shares with us a lot of wonderful information about the importance of soaking grains on her amazing blog My New Roots. Here is a little excerpt:
"Soaking allows enzymes, lactobacilli and other helpful organisms to break down and neutralize phytic acid. As little as seven hours of soaking in acidulated water will neutralize a large portion of phytic acid in grains. The simple practice of soaking cracked or rolled cereal grains overnight will vastly improve their nutritional benefits."
Get ready for berry season! It's definitely on its way and let's keep our fingers crossed for an abundantly juicy, sugary year with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries abound!

Add more fresh berries, a generous sprinkling of goji berries, and maybe even some raw granola on top and enjoy a breakfast fit for royalty.
Sheleana of Young and Raw decided to create a raw vegan strawberry milkshake after a Facebook fan requested a recipe. This milkshake is definitely thick, creamy and sweet but actually contains no sugar, instead it relies on the natural sweetness of a single date, frozen banana, and the inherent sweetness of strawberries. Using frozen strawberries and banana for this recipe is crucial as it will add to that chilled milkshake effect. You could even freeze the nut/coconut milk in ice cube trays if you want an even more frozen style shake. Adding hemp seeds, vanilla protein powder, maca, and tocotrienols will bump this tasty dessert into super nutrition status.
Sun cured vanilla bean make everything better. This sweet cream recipe is so easy to prepare and makes an amazing cream layer in a berry parfait, or drizzled over fresh cut fruit like in this particular recipe. A touch of fresh lemon juice gives this recipe juuuust the right amount of tang without detracting from the sweet vanilla flavor and richness of the cashew nuts.

This springtime inspired tart recipe is the creation of raw vegan chef extraordinaire Lisa Pitman, and is the absolute perfect mix of flavors to induce that comforting feeling that Summer is right around the corner.

Creamy, sweet, frosty, fruity, and zingy are just a few words Hannah used to described her elegant and fun strawberry rose smoothie recipe. "My Strawberry Rose Smoothie was everything I wanted and imagined it to be. The small scoop of dried sour cherries nicely balanced the sweetness of the strawberries, and the rosewater and vanilla were subtle enough to create a taste that was not so much floral as queen-like and ethereal." Sunshine and Happiness in a glass!
A note from Chef Gena Hemshaw about her bold and energizing superfood smoothie: "The following recipe is every bit as tasty as it is vibrant, and it’s packed with nutrition. It’s also not overly sweet, which makes it a good afternoon snack: I personally find that super sweet smoothies make me crash in the afternoon. This was exactly the right amount of sweetness, and it fueled me well for the long day and night of study ahead."
Now make this recipe, enjoy slowly, and proceed to go save the world!
You can't go wrong with the 3 simple ingredients of strawberries, coconut and raw organic honey. This frozen treat is a rich, creamy delight! Just be prepared to loose the desire to eat anything else once you try a bite. It is that good! The coconut in this recipe comes from canned coconut milk.

Karolina claims she "Must have her Granola" on her blog http://loveraw.blogspot.com, she goes and and states that Granola is great, because you can throw together pretty much what you have in the kitchen and use the granola to snack on, form them into bars, eat them with almond milk or as a topping on a cake. You can keep some in your purse for those moments when you need to fuel yourself when you're out. Look in your cupboards, jars and drawers. And bring your biggest bowl and start to create your own mix!!

A good peanut butter and jelly sandwich always sounds good. Not so good on the body, but wow were they tasty! Making fresh almond butter and jam was a reminder of how good sandwiches are. So many times with raw food, instead of trying to replicate “normal” food, you just make new kinds of food. However, a good sandwich can be duplicated.
