Acai Berry Smoothie

acai smoothie

You can’t find acai berries are your local grocery story but they are the superfruit of berries with high fiber content, low glycemic index, and a high ORAC value. However we’ve brought in a new freeze dried acai powder from Organic Traditions. As the name says the product is organic and has an ORAC value of 2390 per 5g serving.

In this smoothie I also add frozen blueberries, protein powder, pecans, and kale to make for a healthy and tasty morning starter.

To Make Smoothie:

Combine all ingredients in high speed blender or food processor.

  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Organic Traditions Freeze Dried Acai Berry Powder
  • 8-10 pecans
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • Handful of kale
  • 6 oz. almond milk

A Raw Warm Salad by Ani Phyo

A Warm Green Salad Recipe

I like the raw diet and I like Ani Phyo. In fact, her cookbook I think is my favorite raw cookbook. Tomatoes do much better with heat and I think that as they are cooked they are better for you.

When I am practicing the raw diet sometimes, I really want something warm. This is a great recipe to give you just that little bit of warmth

Cashew Cream

Cashew makes the most delicious non-dairy replacement for cream and is so easy and delicious to make. It can be used to replace cream in many recipes or as a replacement for whipped cream in deserts.


  • 2 cups of whole cashews (soak cashews at least for 2 hours or overnight in cold water in the fridge.
  • Almond milk (water, coconut milk) I like coconut often times when making cream for dessert.

Drain the cashews and put in blender (high-speed blender is preferable). Cover with almond milk to top of cashews or a bit higher (the higher the level of milk the thinner the cream will be, it is easier to start with less then add more when needed). The less milk you use the thicker the cream will be. Blend on high for a couple of minutes until cream is very smooth. If not using high-speed blender run the cream through fine strainer to remove larger pieces.
For dessert add honey and vanilla extract to taste and serve in place of whipped cream.
