Oh My! Superfood Sweet Potato Pie

When we think of comforting winter foods, sweet potatoes are always high on the list, as they are inexpensive, readily available, and delicious!  Sweet potatoes are a good source of mag­nesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral…something we can all use during the holidays.   The crust for this sweet potato pie could easily be used for other pie recipes.

What could be better than pumpkin pie at the holidays?  Raw Pumpkin Cheesecake of course!

Raw Pumpkin Cheesecake Crust 3 Cups Walnuts (soaked and re-dehydrated is best) 3/4 Cup Medjool Dates (pitted) ¼ tsp Sun Fire Salt 1 tsp Ground Vanilla Bean Make the crust by grinding the nuts in a food processor and pulsing until you have small crumbles.

Holiday Raw: Turkey Balls

No Thanksgiving table is complete without turkey!   With all the yummy Thanksgiving spices in here, you may not even desire any stuffing on the side.  Just plenty of mushroom gravy and fresh raw cranberry sauce. You’ll need a dehydrator to make the turkey balls.  If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can try using your oven on low or saute the turkey “meat” on low with a little water added to the pan to make a “ground turkey meat” effect (works great for turkey tacos). Here’s the recipe – let me know how you choose to play with it and if you […]

If you’re going to have pumpkin pie, in my world, whip cream is a necessity!  Enjoy this whip cream anywhere else you would use regular whip cream, only without the dairy and just as quick and easy to make as old-fashioned whip cream. *** ½ Cup Macadamia Nuts ½ Cup Cashews (or substitute all macadamia nuts) ½ Cup Almond Milk 2 Tbsp Agave Nectar 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract 1 tsp Psyllium Seed Powder If you’re using cashews, soak them for ~4 hours (macadamia nuts do not require soaking).  Blend almond milk, agave, nuts, and vanilla in high powered blender until […]

Raw Holiday: Pumpkin Pie Without the Pumpkin

This is the Best Pumpkin Pie EVER! And it doesn’t even have any pumpkin in it, so it’s easy for your body to digest (raw pumpkin: not so easy). Tastes best with the Raw Mock Whip Cream (of course!) *** Crust: ½ Cup Dates 1 Cup Almonds (not soaked) ½ tsp Sun Fire Salt Grind almonds and salt until a rough flour consistency (in food processor or high-powered blender).  Food process dates.  Mix all ingredients together in bowl (or in the food processor) until evenly sticking together.  Mold crust into a pie plate, starting with edges first.  Use wax paper […]

Raw Holiday: Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

I didn’t make this recipe this year simply because it’s one of those raw food recipes that’s best enjoyed immediately or at least the next day.  It doesn’t store well in the fridge or freezer.  Nevertheless, it tastes good, especially with the Raw Mushroom Gravy on top! *** ½ Cup Cashews and/or Macadamias 1 Cup Cauliflower, chopped ¼ Cup Water ½ Garlic clove, minced ¼ Cup Lemon juice ½ Tbsp Sun Fire Salt Soak cashews for ~4 hours (macadamias do not require soaking).  Blend nuts, cauliflower, garlic, lemon juice and water until a creamy consistency.  Add all ingredients into a […]

Raw Holiday: Real Cranberry Sauce 2

I love cranberry sauce and now I will not eat any kind of cranberry sauce but this raw version.  It’s so much more alive and flavorful than the cooked options.  Many thanks to Yemiah’s DVD’s (sadly no longer published) for the simple and awesome recipe! *** 12oz package of fresh Cranberries (rinsed) ½ Cup Honey (or ¾ Cup Agave Nectar) 2 Oranges (organic) *** Zest both oranges and reserve for later.  Juice both oranges and add juice, cranberries and sweetener to blender.  Blend on high until smooth.  Transfer to bowl and mix in orange zest.  Enjoy immediately or freeze/refrigerate for […]
