Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie

June 26, 2014

Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie

Ok so...WHO doesn't like KEY LIME PIE???? But who doesn't want to DIE because of eating some???
Here's a recipe that will make you think you HAVE died and gone to 
"It's actually healthy for me Heaven!!" Hehe..

Pie Filling
In a good blender add:

4 LARGE or 5 medium RIPE avocados
Zest of 8 limes (do first)
1 c. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (use limes you zested.)
1 1/2 - 2 c. Raw Honey (add to taste)
1 T. Vanilla
1 t. Sea salt

Blend until completely smooth and creamy.


In a food processor add:

3 c. Raw Organic Almonds
10 Large Medjool Dates
1 t. Sea Salt
1 T. Vanilla 


Press into a pie dish.  

Add filling.

I like to put mine into a plastic cake carrier to freeze. 

Wait until it's firm enough to slice.
If it's frozen solid use a warm knife to slice & then let thaw out a smidge before eating (if you can wait that long..Popsicle pie slices are awesome too!) 

If you don't LOVE this something's wrong with you... J/K! ;) No seriously...

I'll add some pics after it's frozen...

Berries & Kreme

June 15, 2014

This recipe is BERRY good! Hahaha!
Ok...I know....
It's Fathers Day and I didn't have a lot of time to make something in advance so I just whipped this up in like 10 minutes!

Berries & Kreme

Use any berries you want!
Or any fruits for that matter!

I used all organic:

2 c. Raw Cashews
2 oranges, juiced
1/4- 1/2 c raw honey 
1 T. Vanilla
1/2 t. Sea salt

Blend well until creamy.
Pour over berries and refrigerate until ready to eat.

This stuff reminds me of sweetened condensed milk that I used to eat by the spoonful straight from the can and poured over bananas! 

For sure add bananas when you are going to eat this salad. You can't put
them in until you are ready to eat them because they will turn yucky and brown.
Just make sure to add them! You'll understand what I mean...

Oh so good!

Happy Father's Day!!

Vegan French Toast

June 8, 2014

Hi Everyone!

On Sundays we have a tradition of eating a typical breakfast meal after church for lunch or dinner depending on our church block. If it's 9:00-12:00 or 11:00-2:00 then for lunch and it it's 1:00-4:00 then for dinner.
Today the kids asked for French Toast.

The original recipe came from the Fit For Life Cookbook. I have adapted it through the years.


Preheat a non stick griddle on medium heat.

In a good blender blend 1 c. raw almonds into flour

Then add:

3 c. Non dairy milk. Organic non gmo Soy Milk is great!
1 T. Cinnamon
1-2 t. Vanilla
3 T. Ground Flax Meal

Blend well.

1 loaf of a good organic whole wheat bread 
(with no more than like 5 ingredients) or Sprouted Organic Ezekiel Bread. Frozen bread works really good!

Pour mixture onto a plate and dip each piece of bread until well coated then 
Place on griddle. About 3 minutes per side.

Top with desired fruit (bananas & strawberries are our favorites) and Real Grade B Organic Maple Syrup.

Your kids will absolutely LOVE these! 

RMM ❤️
