Raw Vegan Date Energy Bites

Dates can be used in so many ways. Raw desserts, drinks, smoothies, cookies. I love the dense texture and the hint of sweetness they have. They make a great snack for pre or post workout, or even a quick pick me up in the afternoon. These little bites are loaded with goodies like whole oats, peanut butter, and walnuts.

Yield: 22 bites using a 1/2” scoop

Ingredients:

6 dates pitted

1/2 cup warm water

3/4 cup whole rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup walnuts

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preparation:

Pitt the dates and add to the food processor with water, oats, walnuts, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Pulse or run on low, scrape down sides and continue to pulse until well blended.

Have a plate or baking tray lined with parchment paper ready.

Using a baking scoop or spoon make small balls and place onto the plate or tray and put in the fridge to firm up for 1 hour and enjoy. These will last in the fridge for about a week.

Raw Vegan Carrot Sushi

Sushi is one of my favorite foods in the whole world. This is such a flavor punch full of raw veggies and it’s a great way to use leftover juice pulp! This raw vegan recipe is one of my favorites. If you do use juice pulp it is best to make this the same day.

Note: If you don’t have pulp, you can also puree vegetables in a food processor, just make sure to squeeze out all the water and use a cheesecloth bag.

Yield: 2 rolls

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups carrot juice pulp (squeezed dry in a cheesecloth bag to get water out)

1/2 cup mixed greens

1/3 cup avocado salsa (a mix of avocados and tomatillos)

1 tbsp. chia seeds

sesame oil

2 nori sheets

IMG_20190220_111308070.jpg

Preparation:

In a bowl mix the pulp and chia seeds together.

Get a sushi mat and wrap in plastic wrap. Lay one sheet of nori on top.

Spread carrot mix on top of the nori in a thin layer. Spread some avocado salsa in the middle, and top with half the mixed lettuce. From the bottom, carefully cup your hands to press the roll while you roll up the sushi.

Slice the sushi with a sharp knife. I find it helps to wet the knife first.  Repeat this process for the second roll.

Top the sushi with a little avocado salsa and drizzle some sesame oil over the top. Grab your chopsticks and enjoy!

2 Ingredient Homemade Oat Milk

I love making my own non-dairy milks. Making your own milk at home is so much cheaper than buying at the store. You can make this recipe for literally pennies versus the $3+ to buy a quart at the supermarket. Grab your oats and let’s get started!

Note: I found its best to use cold filtered water and only blend for 1-2 minutes. If you use water that is too warm or blend too long it can warm up the oats and in a couple of days you’ll have slimy milk.

Yield: 4 cups of oat milk

Ingredients:

1 cup of whole rolled oats (not the instant quick oats)

4 cups cold filtered water

Preparation:

IMG_20190103_085144233.jpg

IMG_20190110_130548275.jpg

Place 1 cup of whole rolled oats and 4 cups of water into your blender.

Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes. If you have a french press this is perfect for straining out the oats, or use a fine mesh strainer and pour milk into a glass jar or pitcher and enjoy.

The small bits of oat can settle so shake before each use. This will last in the fridge for 3-5 days.

Raw Banana Ice Cream

If you want a fast sweet treat bananas are the perfect option! Frozen bananas lend the perfect consistency similar to real ice cream, without the extra fat and sugar. Add in any toppings you like and you’ve got the perfect dessert. I love to add in dark chocolate chips, fresh blueberries, strawberries, walnuts, cashews, and top it all off with  dairy-free whipped cream and chocolate sauce. The combination possibilities are endless!

Note: The less ripe the bananas are the less sweet the ice cream will be. For the best ripeness, choose bananas that are slightly green, but not overly ripe where its mushy and is browning. Try to get ones that are firm and somewhere in the middle ground.

Note: Cashew milk makes a creamy ice cream and a richer flavor, while almond milk is less rich. Try coconut, rice, or hemp milk. They all lend different sweetness and richness to the dish. Store bought nut milks are cooked, so if you make your own at home this stays raw!

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients:

2-3 frozen bananas

1/3 cup non-dairy milk.

toppings of your choice

Preparation:

First you need to peel the bananas, cut them up into 1 inch slices and place them in to a tupperware container and freeze them at least for 2 hours, or overnight.

Using a food processor, add the frozen banana slices and milk. Blend well until creamy in consistency. You can add more milk slowly if needed. Add in any extras you want in the mix and blend. Serve and garnish with your choice of extra toppings and enjoy.

Pineapple and Parsley Detox Smoothie

This smoothie is so refreshing! The combination of fresh parsley and pineapple juice is so cleansing, and cool. This has become a new favorite of mine to make in the mornings.

Note: Always peel your bananas before freezing, and chop your cucumbers, and fruits up into chunks so its easier and faster to blend.
