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 made 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!

Spirulina Wraps – Healthy On The Go Snacks!

Spirulina Wraps

I keep posting lately recipes with Spirulina as it is considered a Superfood and if you google the health benefits of spirulina you will see why!!  Just look at the dark green color –  loaded with nutrients and chlorphyll just to name a couple of things.

Not always pleasant tasting on it’s own but when you can mix it into things, you are only increasing the nutritional value and eating healthier which is cool by the way 🙂

This recipe looks a little funky, but makes a great snack and one you can carry for on the go! Totally raw and vegan, unless you need to use an oven – again still better than many other options when one is trying to eat healthy.  This recipe makes approx 8 – 10 rolls so you can always double it and put in sealed container (once they are dehydrated).

Spirulina Wraps

–         1 small Onion chopped

–         1 cup raw Sunflower seeds (soaked or unsoaked)

–         ½ cup raw Sesame seeds

–         ½ cup fresh Cilantro

–         ¼ cup Nutritional Yeast

–         juice of 1 Lemon

–         pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

–         1 tsp Spirulina (Purium’s Spirulina)

–         Spices (optional)

Throw all ingredients in a processor and process until desired consistency (either a little chunky or rather smooth)

Spirulina Wraps

Approximately 5 Raw Nori sheets – yes you can buy Nori sheets raw – it will say right on the package, a little harder to find and if you can’t then of course you can use regular Nori sheets (not raw but still healthy).

Cut into 3 pieces as even ½ a sheet will be too much.

Put a line of the mixture on each piece and roll up (I used a Sushi mat to help with the rolling).

Spirulina Wraps

Put in dehydrator and dehydrate for approximately 12 – 14 hours.

Keep in a sealed container and it will keep for a couple of weeks.

Great for a quick on the go snack and loaded with nutrition!!

Enjoy and please feel free to share – thanks for stopping by!!
