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.
This recipe tastes like a refreshing lemon yogurt drink and makes the perfect light breakfast or even dessert on a warm summers evening. Young Thai coconut meat blends with a fresh burst of citrusy flavor from lemon juice and lemon flavored stevia. Also included in the recipe is fresh coconut water for hydration and electrolytes as well as ice to create the ultimate refreshment that is also nourishing for the body. This delicious drink is also very low glycemic!
Yep, that's right, it's mango season and it's easier than ever to find the creme de la creme of all mangoes, the champagne mango. These delicious vitamin c and beta carotene rich gems are not at all stringy and have a very sweet flavor and silky texture when left to ripen. A simple Thai coconut cream with vanilla and a touch of stevia is the perfect accompaniment for the luscious mango in this recipe. For this recipe, Heather Pace recommends you either chill the coconut cream before layering with your mango or at least make sure the young coconut has been kept in the fridge beforehand. This will ensure a delightfully cool dessert experience as we head into warming weather!
Gone are the days when enjoying a tasty salad dressing also means enjoying loads of fat, salt, and processed ingredients. You will love this creamy rich caesar salad dressing by Young and Raw. It works very well as a dip for veggie crudités and of course as a healthy and vegan alternative to the traditional caesar dressing found in many restaurants and stores. Sheleana from Young and Raw states that, "A good caesar dressing should be creamy, tangy, and bold in flavour." and this particular dressing hits the mark on all 3 fronts. Don't be afraid to share this dressing with non-vegan friends, they will love it just the same.
Sheleana from Young and Raw asks, "Do you suffer from inflammation, sore joins, menstrual cramps or even want to repair your muscles faster after yoga or a really good workout? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, boy do we have a cocktail for you!" This recipe utilizes fresh coconut water or a blend of green vegetable juices as a carrier for one of the most potent and renowned herbs to reduce inflammation: Tumeric! Because coconut water is so similar in composition to our own blood it makes it the perfect delivery system for this powerful healer. However, this recipe can also be made with green juice as the base. Try it and enjoy the many benefits of tumeric!
Simplicity at it's finest! This chocolate mylk recipe combines fresh coconut milk with ice, a few drops of stevia, and of course a few tbs of Rawtella for a rich cacao hazelnut experience. Rawtella is sweetened only with coconut sugar crystals, which are low glycemic. Stevia is NO glycemic which makes this recipe very easy on the blood sugar. Sip on it's own, as a mylk over a raw cereal or porridge, or as a base for smoothies. Or leave out the ice, add a bit more water, and gently warm on the stove top and sprinkle with a little extra cocoa powder and coconut crystals for a warm drinking chocolate. Mmmm
This soup has been coined by chef Gena Hemshaw as "sinlessly indulgent" and was inspired by a trip to Bonobos in New York City. It is easy to make and is rich, sweet, and satisfying yet light enough to eat a whole bowl (or 2!) Coconut meat is a fantastic source of healthy fats, calcium and potassium and the coconut water will supply you with your daily dose of electrolytes. Use stevia to sweeten for a super low glycemic meal or use a combination of stevia and agave or dates if stevia alone is too strong for your tastes.
Summer is right around the corner and what's every raw foodie's favorite part of the season? The abundance of fresh summer produce of course! This smoothie is packed full of antioxidants from dark cherries and makes for an equally pleasing dessert or breakfast. Add a vegan protein powder like Epic Protein (Lucuma Vanilla flavor would be amazing) Or turn it into a green smoothie by throwing in a handful or two of greens. This treat is based on Kristen's Chocolate Cherry Bomb recipe.
