Mango Sorbet

I love the refreshing sweet tangy flavor of store-bought mango sorbet, and now I’ve discovered it’s super easy to make it at home – and even tastier. I like to make about a pint’s worth because it fills up my used plastic yogurt or hummus containers that are easy for holding home-made ice-creams and sorbets.  Here are the basic proportions: 2 Cups pure water 2/3 Cup Vanilla Agave Nectar 4 Cups Frozen Chopped Mangoes (about 4 Champagne mangoes or 2 larger Kent mangoes) Blend all ingredients until smooth in a high powered blender (like a Vitamix).  You may require dividing […]

Raw Blueberry Scones with Vanilla Lucuma Icing

If you crave bread or muffins or scones, then this recipe is definitely for you!  I’ve adjusted and upgraded one of Ani Phyo’s recipes from her book [amazon-product text=”Anis Raw Food Desserts” tracking_id=”vingsuperfoods-20″ type=”text”]0738213063[/amazon-product] and boy is it yummy! You will require a dehydrator to make the scones (or use your oven in it’s lowest setting with the door cracked open if you want to eat these before investing in a dehydrator). And the Vanilla Lucuma Icing! Wow, you can use that on anything and make it any flavor you like (add fruit juices or blended fruit or cacao powder).  […]

Raw Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I love how light and easy on the digestion raw desserts are, and this carrot cake is no exception! Many thanks to [amazon-product text=”Anis Raw Food Kitchen” type=”text”]1600940005[/amazon-product] recipe book for this recipe – I made only a few small adjustments simply because I like walnut chunks in my carrot cake. This recipe will make a large double-layered carrot cake that will last a couple of weeks in the fridge (maybe longer if you freeze it but you’d need to defrost before eating).  The frosting won’t look as beautiful after the first couple of days, but it will still taste […]

Chocolatey Chocolate Brownies 3

This is my new favorite when I crave chocolate chewyness (sorry chocolate cake recipe, this one wins out).  I’ve taken a recipe from Ani Phyo’s awesome recipe book, [amazon-product text=”Anis Raw Food Kitchen” type=”text”]1600940005[/amazon-product], and I’ve altered ingredients to make it taste like chocolate brownies with chocolate icing on top.  Mmmmm! *** Brownies (fills a 9×12 pan) 3.5 Cups Brazil Nuts 1 tsp Sun Fire Salt 3 Cups Dates 2 Tbsp Vanilla 1.25 Cup Cacao Powder (or use Carob if you prefer) 1/2 Cup Mesquite Powder 1/4 Cup Tocotrienols (also known as “tocos”) 3/4 Cup Pecans or Walnuts – chopped […]

Goji Lemon Bars: Chewable Goji Lemonade 1

If you like lemon bars, or you like Goji Lemonade, I think you’ll really like these Goji Lemon Bars.  This is an adaptation of [amazon-product text=”Ani Phyos” tracking_id=”lovingsuperfoods-20″ type=”text”]1600940005[/amazon-product] Lemon Coconut Bars recipe. I’ve clarified some of her recipe and added in goji berries.  It’s pretty darn yummy.  Try it and taste for yourself! This recipe makes about 12 bars in a 9×9 inch pan. Ingredients: 1 Cup Almonds (soaked 8 hours and rinsed is best) 1 tsp Sun Fire Salt 1.5 Cups Dates 1 Tbsp Vanilla (or 1 vanilla bean – scrape the insides) Zest of 1 Lemon or […]

Raw Mango Blueberry Cobbler

Oh My Goodness this is a good dessert!  OK, so I don’t ever post icky desserts, but wow, this mango blueberry cobbler gets high praise!  The recipe is a slight adaptation from Ani Phyo’s Mango Cobbler in her recipe book Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen. Really, the only thing I did differently was to add blueberries into her recipe … I love mango and blueberries together. Here’s the recipe with my additional notes below on how I would improve or play with it even more: Crust/Topping: 3 Cups Pecans (dry) 3/4 tsp Sun Fire Salt (or other high quality sea salt) 1 Tbsp Vanilla […]
