Lime and Rose Dessert Raw and Vegan

20150412183303(2)

This Lime and Rose dessert is so good!
I love love love to use rose in puddings, well in actually  everything I can get away with.
This is also the perfect way to hide avocados for the kids as they think (well the little one does) that the green colour comes from the limes.

– 3 avocados

– 6 majool dates

Hi everyone!
Don’t Italiens make the best tasting food ever?
This is my raw vegan Marinara recipe so delicious and comforting, perfect as a family meal!
I know some kids put their noses up when they see the spiralizer being used but then you can just make them the sauce which is full of vitality.
And since it’s raw it will take you no time to whip up, especially if you are quick with a knife!

20150207185630(1)

Getting kids to eat a health-inducing warming soup is not always easy!
Especially if you got several kids who like really different types of foods and are fussy in different ways.
Add some food allergies into the mix and it’s easy to throw in the towel.
In this video I show you what I did to get my kids used to and later liking this healthy vegan vegetable soup.

Not just great as a salad dressing, It’s also fab as a dipping sauce.
Soak your nuts.
Put all the ingredients in your blender and it’s done.
Easy-peasy, with a bit of lemon squesy.

Healthy Guilt-free Frappuccino (vegan)

20140705163824(3)I absolutely adore Coffee Frappuccino’s ever since I had my very first Ice-blended coffee at The Coffe Bean in Beverly Hills 1994.
I was working on a documentary with a less than uplifting subject, and sipping on this in the early morning sunshine as I watched the city come to life just made my time in LA very special.
Ice cream have always been my comfort food of choice , I guess I need to cool down…
The above recipe is my healthy version of  an ice-blended drink and It’s super yummy!!
I use dandelion as a coffee substitute, it’s good for the digestion it supports important liver function.
Hope you like it!

Breakfast: Nut-Free Overnight Strawberry Bircher (vegan)

20140615193100(2)

There’s nothing better than to start the day with something super delicious and filling that is also hugely healthy!
My morning are always frantic with trying to get the kids ready for school and this bircher works really well for time-strapped mornings, as I just mix it all together the night before, put it in the fridge and dish out in the morning.
(Bish bash bosh! And it gives me time to shower/brush my hair, yay!)
This bircher is nut-free as one of my kids, together with so many others nowadays, are allergic to certain nuts, and because I use sunflower seeds it’s still crunchy and lovely.
I hope you like it!
