Raw Carrot Avocado Soup

Raw food can be time-consuming to prepare, but it can also be made in 3 minute like this soup from last week.  And, in case my husband is reading (which is highly unlikely), I still love, love, love my VitaMix!

Before:

After:

Raw Carrot Avocado Soup

  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 – 1 avocado
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • sprinkle of cayenne (to taste)
  • 1/2 in ginger
  • 1/2-1 c water (as needed to blend)

Add all ingredients and blend to smooth.  Add more water if needed.

Pumpkin-esque Pie-esque

Not actually pumpkin and not really pie, but not sure what else to call it?  Read on and see if you have any suggestions…

Pumpkin Pie-Like Dessert (inspired by a recipe in Everyday Raw)
(makes 3-4 mini desserts)

  • 1/4 c cashews, soaked at least 4 hours
  • 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1/4 c coconut oil
  • 1/4 c + 1 Tbsp carrot juic
  • 1/4 t vanilla
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • Blend all until very smooth and freeze

I put mine atop a really basic ground almonds+honey ‘crust’, but may look to make a more official raw crust next time.

The whole family liked this, as it ends up tasting like a pumpkin pie ice cream cake.  Hey, maybe that should be the name….
