New York "Egg Cream" - Rawfully Tempting Style

Who remembers New  York style Egg Cream? My mom prepared these for us when we were younger using seltzer, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, and milk.  I think the original recipe was made with egg, but ours never had egg in them. This was just a quick and  yummy beverage Mom whipped up! Well, I'm so excited because I created a HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE that is so very reminiscent of this childhood elixir!!!  When I took my first sip there was an instant recognition...and flashback.  I gave a sip to W and asked, "What does this remind you of?" Not being from NY, he sensed it was familiar, but did not grow up with it.  If you lived on the East Coast in the 60's...when the soda man actually delivered the seltzer bottles to your home, then you know what an Egg Cream is...

Rawfully Tempting Raw Chocolate Fruit and Nut Bark


This was gone gone gone before I could get a good photo. Tempering raw chocolate is possible, but challenging. I'm not a greatchocolatier as I don't have the patience or the equipment, however, I try to attempt manually tempering whenever possible. For a quick..."I don't care about fussing" treat...simple - DO NOT temper. Throw this tastiness together, and store in the refrigerator or freezer. WARNING: It will melt in your hands..so EAT it quickly, or break into smaller, bite-sized pieces. This will cure any junk food craving for sweets!  There are several optional ingredients. I hope you use this blog for educational purposes, so even if you don't choose to use all of the suggested ingredients, you may at least become aware they exist.

"Root Beer Float" Smoothie

As a little girl I'd get utterly giddy at the thought of a Root Beer Float, and to this day, it's connected to many happy childhood memories. As a recipe developer, my goal is to RE-create comfort foods, replacing processed ingredients with healthy ingredients. While visiting a local spice shop, I came across this Root Beer Extract and could not resist. The aroma alone, sent me down memory lane. I was inspired to create! While not an actual "soda" the flavor is quite reminiscent of Root Beer Floats. Just thinking about some raw vegan vanilla ice cream wiht this..YUM!  But for now, this smoothies, inspired by childhood memories, please this little girls' taste buds..I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Living Tree Smoothie Spectacular

One of my favorite online stores, Living Tree Community sent me a lovely sample pack of their vibrant living butters. Yesteday, although it's really easy, I wasn't in the mood to cut open a coconut, and opted to create a spectacular blend of these delicious ingredients without having to make a nut milk or coconut milk base. I have to say, everything from this store vibrates with LOVE...and this smoothie, was indeed SPECTACULAR. Turmeric Butter, Mesquite, Maca and extracts are always optional, but take some time to read about them. The added flavors are great, but they are also super nutritious!  I suggest you try some of these products...but if you don't have them available, improvise with almond butter, or any combination of nut butters that seem to go well together. This is one of my quick and easy smoothies..sort of a "cheater" smoothie..making nut milk using butters and water..no straining, no mess.

Dairy-Free, Raw Ice Cream


Ok! Bad picture! It was evening, and it was metling. I had very little lighting, but wanted to capture it. You'll have to trust me..It was GREAT! Some time back, I did a post on  how to prepare ice cream using a juicer and blank plate. It's been awhile since I pulled out the old Champion...but I'm sooooo glad I did. Last night I literally threw together some Blueberry Banana Coconut Ice Cream. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Apple Walnut Muffins - Gluten-Free

Served warm from the dehydrator, these muffins are very reminiscent of the SAD (Standard American Diet - aka BAKED) version. I didn't make them too sweet, and sunflower seeds can have a little bite, so sweeten according to your taste. I love the "Autumn Spiciness." Drizzle with raw honey, cashew cream, or your favorite fruit "syrup"...oh, and some raw ice cream - HEAVEN!

Muesli Breakfast Mix - "Cream of NO-Wheat"

I'm in LOVE with this delicious blend. Just so you know, some of these ingredients are not raw. Feel free to substitute with a sprouted/dehydrated version. It's Winter on the East Coast, and popped Amaranth and toasted sesame seeds bring out the flavor in this mix! This is one of the tastiest mixes I've made and a favorite in our home.

Fig Halvah (Sesame) Smoothie


"Open sesame"—the famous phrase from the Arabian Nights—reflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity. 

Growing up, Halvah, (a ground sesame paste, fudge-like snack), was a huge treat in our household, and I've always loved the flavor and consistency. This smoothie is very reminiscent of  my favorite childhood treat.
