Do you like sweet breakfast? I always crave sweet fruits in the mornings after I wake up. Bananas are great energy filled food, perfect for the start of a new day. Paired with blackberries and figs, they bring the morning to another level. A sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and a beautiful raw creation is served.

Bananas are great energy filled food, perfect for the start of a new day.
Paired with blackberries and figs, they bring the morning to another level.

When I was little, my grandmother had all kinds of fruits, berries and vegetables in her garden. I remember feeding our dog with blackberries and he enjoyed them as much as I! Fresh blackberries were always my favourite kind of berries.

Sometimes I really miss the times spent in my grandmother’s garden eating real, organic food without realizing how important and nourishing it is for my body. Now I live in an apartment, thousands of miles away from my grandparent’s place and getting organic produce is really not that easy anymore. I still enjoy eating fresh fruits and vegetables as much as before though, if not even more.

En grön smoothie är det enklaste sättet att få kvalitativ näring i systemet. Lägg till lite rå veganskt protein och det blir perfekt! Jag använde Sprout Living protein. Jag börjar seriöst bli beroende av dehär grejerna. Jag älskar alla deras smaker och använder dem i smoothies och fruktsallader. De inte bara smakar bra, det innehåller de bästa kvalitets ingredienserna. Jag kan verkligen rekommendera dessa produkterna.

Green Kingdom smaken är bäst för grön smoothie. Den innehåller en blandning av de mest näringsrika ingredienser. Tillsammans med risprotein kan du utforska den näringsmässiga kraften i spirulina och chlorella. Allt packat i en smak som påminner lite om grönt te! Jag älskade speciellt detta i denna tropiska gröna smoothie.

Green Kingdom Power Smoothie

2 skopor (30g) Sprout Living protein pulver, Green Kingdom
1 mogen banan, skalad
1 kopp ananas, skalad och hackad
½ mango, skalad
3 färska fikon
1 koppar grönkål eller spenat
1 tsk citrongräs, hackad

Lägg alla ingredienser i en höghastighetsmixer och mixa tills det är jämnt. Garnera med extra blad av grönkål och skivor av frukt.
Drick och njut av kraften av frukt kombinerat med grönt!
//A green smoothie is the easiest way of getting quality nutrition into your system. Add some raw vegan protein and it’s perfect! I used Sprout Living protein. I’m seriously getting addicted to this stuff. I love all their flavors and use them in smoothies or fruit salads. They don’t only taste great, but they contain the best quality ingredients. I highly recommend these products.

Green Kingdom flavor is the best choice for a green smoothie. It contains a blend of the most nutritious ingredients. Along with sprouted rice protein you will explore the nutritional power of spirulina and chlorella. All packaged in a taste reminding of iced green tea! I loved it especially in this tropical green smoothie.

The Smell of fresh ground coffee is smell of sunny mornings to me. I didn’t use to drink much coffee in my old days, but I always loved candy and cakes with coffee taste. I wanted to create some healthy raw dessert with mocca taste and I found out that the mesquite powder adds to deserts a taste similar to the mocca taste.

Have you ever tried mesquite powder? Mesquite, also known as algorroba, is a leguminous plant found in arid parts of South America. Mesquite is high in protein, low on the glycemic index, and a good source of soluble fiber, meaning it digests relatively slowly and does not cause spikes in blood sugar. This gluten free powder is also a good source of calcium, iron, lysine, manganese, zinc and potassium.

I hope you will like this recipe as much as I did!

Raw Mocca Mousse Cake

 Crust:
1 1/2 cup pulp from hemp seed milk or almond milk (can be substituted with almond flour)
1 cup dates, pitted
1/3 cup raw cocoa powder
1 tsp pure vanilla powder
1 tsp coffee extract (or 2 Tbsp black coffee)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp raw mesquite powder

Mousse cream:
2 cups dates, pitted
3 Tbs raw cocoa powder
4 Tbsp raw mesquite powder
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
5 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
2 tsp coffee extract (or 4 Tbsp black coffee)

Garnish:
2 Tbsp raw cocoa powder
2 Tbsp coffee beans

1 spring form, coated with coconut oil or rapeseed oil

To make the crust: Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until you get formable mass. Press the mass into your spring form to get flat crust on the bottom.
To make the mousse cream: Place all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until you get a smooth cream. Stir in to the spring form. Place in freezer for at least 6 hours until set. When serving, use a knife to release the cake from the form before getting off the ring. Sprinkle with raw cocoa powder and decorate with coffee beans.

 

//Doften av färsktmalet kaffe är lukten av soliga mornar för mig. Jag brukade inte dricka mycket kaffe förr, men jag har alltid älskat godis och kakor med kaffesmak. Jag ville skapa någon typ av nyttig raw food dessert med moccasmak och jag hörde att mesquitepulver ger desserter en smak som liknar mocca.

Har du någonsin provat mesquitepulver? Mesquite, även känd som algorroba, är en baljväxt som finns i torra delar av Sydamerika. Mesquite innehåller mycket protein, lågt glykemiskt index, och en bra källa till lösliga fibrer, vilket betyder att den smälter relativt långsamt och inte orsaka blodsockertoppar. Detta glutenfria pulver är också en bra källa till kalcium, järn, lysin, mangan, zink och kalium.

Jag hoppas att ni kommer att gilla detta recept lika mycket som jag gjorde!

//Raw Mocca Mousse Cake

Moussekräm:
2 koppar dadlar, urkärnade
3 msk rå kakaopulver
4 msk raw mesquite-pulver
2 tsk rent vaniljextrakt
5 mogna bananer, skalade och skivade
2 tsk kaffeextrakt (eller 4 msk svart kaffe)

garnering:
2 msk raw kakaopulver
2 msk kaffebönor

1 kakform, smord med kokosolja eller rapsolja

För att göra botten: Lägg alla ingredienser i en matberedare och mixa tills du får formbar deg. Pressa ut degen i kakformen så den täcker botten i ett jämt lager
För att göra mousse-grädden: Lägg alla ingredienser till en höghastighets mixer och mixa tills du får en slät smet. Rör ned den i kakformen. Ställ i frysen i minst 6 timmar tills den satt sig. Vid servering, använd en kniv för att frigöra kakan ur formen innan du tar av sargen. Strö med rå kakao och dekorera med kaffebönor.

It’s time for some savory recipe! Sushi is one of my favorite dishes, but since I started with raw vegan diet I stopped liking rice so much. I eat it if there is no other option, for example vegan sushi in a sushi restaurant. But when I make it at home, I want it to be raw, light and juicy, made only of vegetables. I tried many raw vegan rice  alternatives, but parsnip rice is my absolute best! You have to try it to experience the taste of guilt free, light deliciousness. It’s low fat and contains very little calories, so it’s perfect for those that are trying to lose weight and got tired of their every day salad. I absolutely love and adore this recipe, must try!

Raw Vegan Parsnip Rice Sushi
Parsnip rice:
2 cups parsnip, chopped
1/3 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup zucchini, peeled and chopped
1/3 cup water
squeeze of lime juice

Filling:
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 carrot, sliced longways
1 bunch of arugula
1 big portabello mushroom, sliced longways

Side dish:
1/2 cup shoyu or tamari
Fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

Raw wasabi:
1/2 avocado
3 Tbsp finely shredded horseradish

about 3 nori sheets

To make the parsnip rice: Place chopped parsnips in a food processor and shred by using shredding disc. Place zucchini, pine nuts, lime juice and water in a high speed blender and blend until smooth, use more water if needed. You want to get creamy mixture. Place your pine cream and shredded parsnips in a bowl and blend together.

Place a nori sheet on your bamboo mat and spread your parsnip rice to cover the bigger half with thin (not too much) layer. Place avocado slices, carrots, arugula and portabellos in the middle longways and roll up firmly. Use your fingers to press the filling in while rolling. Tap some drops of water on the edge of nori sheet to glue it together. Using sharp knife create sushi bites.

To make the raw wasabi: Blend all ingredients together using hand blender or high speed blender to make creamy mixture.

Serve your sushi bites with raw wasabi, ginger slices and shoyu or tamari.

My all time favorite recipe! It requires a dehydrator, but it’s worth the effort. I was always a pancake/crêpe lover and as vegan, I wanted to try all kinds of milk/egg/gluten free alternatives for this dish, but dehydrated pancakes are definitely the best and healthiest one. If you work out, you can add some vegan protein powder in this recipe. I’m using vanilla protein powder now and I’m sure it would make the crepes even more delicious. I will try it next time and share the recipe with you!

Raw Blueberry Crêpes

makes about 5 crêpes

5 ripe organic bananas
1 cup blueberries
pinch of pure vanilla powder

Filling:
Fruits of your choice, chopped (I used mangoes, kiwi, bananas and blueberries)
Raw coconut cream, recipe HERE

To make the crêpes: Place bananas, blueberries and vanilla powder in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Spread the mixture on a nonstick teflex sheet and place in your dehydrator. Dehydrate for about 8 hours at 41°C until you can safely remove the crêpes. Fill with raw coconut cream and garnish with fruits.

Fresh and easy dinner idea. Raw zucchini pasta is one the best you can eat on raw vegan diet. It’s easy to make and it tastes just like pasta, although it contains very little calories so it’s perfect if you’re trying to keep your weight or lose a few pounds. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use julienne peeler and create long stripes of zucchini, carrots or other veggies. Top it with nut cheese sauce and vegetables of your choice. You can also try one of my favorite recipes for this dish, hope you’ll like it!

// Tip pre jednoduchú, ľahkú večeru. Raw cuketové cestoviny sú jedným z toho najlepšieho čo raw food strava ponúka. Sú jednoduché na prípravu a chutia úplne ako cestoviny, obsahujú ale omnoho menej kalórií a sú tak vhodné v prípade že sa snažíte udržať si postavu či zhodit nejaké to kilo. Ak nevlastníte špirálovač, môžte použiť obyčajnú škrabku na zemiaky a vytvoriť tak dlhé rezance z cukety, mrkvy či inej zeleniny. Polejte ich omáčkou z namočených orieškov a ozdobte zeleninou podľa vlastnej chuti. Môžte vyskúšat aj môj obľúbený recept pre túto dobrotu, snáď vám bude chutiť!
