Raw Holiday: Mock Whip Cream

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 creamy.  Add psyllium powder and blend until mixed.  Pour into a container and chill for a couple of hours for best taste and thickness.

Enjoy!

Raw Holiday: Pumpkin Pie Without the Pumpkin

Pumpkin PieThis 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 as necessary to help mold the crust into place without sticking to your fingers.

Raw Key Lime Pie

Key Lime PreparationsI love key lime pie and now that I found this raw version I love it even more.  Regular key lime pie tastes so sweet and processed to my tastebuds now that I’m used to eating more raw, pristine, live foods.  I found a raw key lime pie recipe online and have adjusted it to taste even more like the key lime I remember and better.

This raw dessert takes a bit longer than our yummy raw apple pie, but it’s worth it when you’ve got a key lime craving.  I make suggestions for simplifying below, and I highly suggest you take the time to zest and juice those tiny key limes at least once so you taste how really yummy, key limey they are. :)

Here’s the recipe …

For the Crust:
1/2 Cup Almonds
1 Cup Walnuts
1/2 Cup Dates
1/4 Cup Raisins
2 Tbsp orange juice (or water if no orange juice available)

Raw Apple Pie … The Quickest, Yummiest Pie!

raw apple pieIn addition to the Raw Cheesecake, we’ve got a new favorite raw dessert that takes even less time to prepare and is super yummy.

This apple pie works best with Granny Smith Apples since their tartness balances out the very sweet sauce.  I also love that the pie looks baked with the extra-special crumbly topping.  Oh, and if you want it even quicker, try it without the crust – it’s just as good and yummy.

Crust Ingredients
1 Cup Walnuts (or pecans) – dried!  (soak, rinse and dehydrate them or just use them dry)
1/8 tsp Sun Fire Salt
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 Cup Dates (soaked and pitted)

Blend the nuts and salt in your food processor (ideal) or Vitamix blender until crumbly.  Add the dates and vanilla and process until a dough is formed. (Note, if you’re doing this in a Vitamix, you may want to process the dates and vanilla on their own and then hand mix the nuts and date mix together).

In a pie pan (9 inches), press the crust into the bottom until evenly distributed.  Put this in the fridge or freezer until ready to add the apples.
