One of the great things with summer is all the fresh foods and the wonderful friends that share with you!!  I had a dear friend share a bunch of plums with me this past week and after eating some I had to create something different – I was pleasantly surprised and got good feedback from the friends that tried it.

RAw Chocolate Mousse Parfait

 

Finishing up another Transformation Cleanse and feeling fantastic – I wanted to stay with eating light, raw and healthy – especially since the weather is so hot – it’s easier to do this at this time of the year.

Another raw and vegan recipe that is easy to make, tasty and can be loaded with lots of nutrition making eating healthy much easier, so much so I had it for breakfast :)

 

Raw Chocolate Mousse Parfait

 

-  2 large Avocados

-  1/4 cup Raw Cacao Powder

-  1/4 cup Agave

-  1 tsp Vanilla

Optional ingredients (and only suggestions but these can really increase nutritional value since these foods are very nutrient dense and therefore will stay with you much longer as in not getting hungry soon after) 1 tsp Spirulina,  1 tbsp Rice Bran Solubles, 2 tbsp Hemp, 1 tbsp Maca – you could  use all of them together and it would still taste amazing and really be filling!!

 

Throw all ingredients into a processor and process until smooth – adjust for taste.

Choc Mousse-3

 

Nut Crunch

-  1 tbsp Coconut Oil

-  1/4 cup Coconut sugar

-  1 tbsp Hemp

-  1 tsp Chia seeds

-  2 tbsp chopped Walnuts

In a frying pan, on medium heat, melt the coconut oil then add in the coconut sugar and stir until it thickens.

Then add in the rest of the ingredients to well mixed and continue to stir for about a min.

Remove from heat and spread on a cookie sheet. I like to keep my in the fridge but you don’t have to, once cool break it up into smaller pieces.

(this can be eaten on it’s own, add into salads, as topping on deserts or mixed into this chocolate mousse parfait)

 

Take some of the Chocolate Mousse mixture and put into a glass or bowl, then some nut crunch, then some fruit and keep layering 2 or 3 times.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

This will make two good servings or 4 smaller ones.

Please feel free to share this and let me know if you make it how it went!!

Raw Tacos

 

Love the summer months when everything is fresh and easy to eat more raw foods, more vegan foods and it tastes even better as most of it can be grown in your area – yummy!!

I love this recipe – and it can be changed up a few different ways, but here is one to get you started. This recipe is pretty quick and easy and of course tasty too – don’t be afraid to adjust amounts of things for your taste or add in some different herbs or spices.

 

Taco Filling

-    1 cup raw Walnuts

-    ½ cup fresh Parsley

-    1 tbsp Braggs or Tamari

-     1/2 cup fresh Cilantro (if you really don’t like Cilantro use Parsley)

-      juice of 1/2 Lemon

-       1 minced Garlic clove

Raw Tacos

 

Throw all ingredients into a food processor and process until desired consistency (you can leave it rather chunky or more smooth which just needs more processing – I usually go in the middle somewhere so there is a little bit of chunks of nut)

 

For these tacos I used the outer (as they are usually bigger) of Green Cabbage leaves

 

I chopped up some extra Cilantro, chopped Tomatoes, sliced Avocados, added a little Hot Sauce and topped with Alfalfa Sprouts and rolled it up.

Healthy eating doesn’t get much easier - enjoy!
