This is my own version of the traditional “Eggnog”, except it’s dairy free, 100% RAW and tastes absolutely amazing! I have been experimenting with new recipes using my favorite Vanilla Warrior Blend Raw Protein Powder by Sun Warrior, and the blend of spices and flavors in this smoothie, combined with the delicious creaminess of the vanilla protein powder resulted in — well — your traditional Eggnog. So yummy. Continue reading
This is the first grain-free porridge I’ve made since giving up the grain, and contrary to what you may think – it’s actually packed with flavor. I use the Sun Warrior Vanilla RAW Protein powder in this recipe, which almost makes it taste like a vanilla custard or pudding…and the texture of the chia seeds are pretty awesome.
It’s about time I post this recipe… I had been thinking about making my own almond milk for some time, and finally last week I decided to give it a try. The result? Spectacular. Amazing. Creamy. A Creamy-Vanilla-Caramel dream (did I mention there’s no caramel added?). This recipe makes about one and a half litres or 7 cups which I was sure would last me a week or so…boy was I wrong. This milk is so much creamier than any other almond milk I’ve bought… it’s a treat just on it’s own! This week I’ve had it on top of my “The Farmer’s Grain-Free Muesli“, I’ve used it in my RAW “Chocolate Sun Warrior Fudge Brownies“, and I’ve mixed it in my daily protein shakes (which make them taste more like a dessert)… yes, it’s time to make another batch!
These protein bars were a total experiment, and I have to say – I wasn’t expecting much out of them. I threw a batch together last night, in hopes that by preparing these a day a head it would give me one less thing to worry about when my mid-afternoon hunger came around. And let’s just say – I was pleasantly surprised.
I woke up this morning feeling like smoothie for breakfast. I know, I finished my cleanse/detox less than two days ago, so you’d think 2-3+ smoothies/day during those two weeks would’ve changed that, but no. One thing that I discovered during my cleanse, is how little I actually eat of RAW foods. I always try to cook my veggies ‘al dente’ so there’s still plenty of nutrients in them, but it’s not the same as getting 100% raw foods in your body. Wanna know if there’s a difference between eating cooked calories and raw calories?
