The power of Raw vs. fantasized pizzaPosted: March 9, 2011
Not only is my grocery store out of sweet potatoes, they also stopped selling my favorite brand of cocoa powder. Sad face! Since the other ones looked rather fishy to me, I decided to pass on the cocoa. But I really, really wanted chocomole… so I went for the next best thing and made avocarob. The boyfriend loved it and declared it tasted a bit like tiramisu. I’m not sure what creates this peculiar taste — the mix or carob and vanilla, maybe? I like the original, plain ol’ chocolate version better, but this one’s worth a try for any chocolate-meets-coffee lover out there!
Vegan mocha pudding — serves two
2 small ripe avocado
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp carob
1 tbsp agave syrup
Blend, baby, blend! If, like me, you’re using an immersion blender, you may need to add a little water to smooth things up. Keep in the fridge until just before serving.
I’m done reading Crazy Sexy Diet. Boo! But I feel like reading it all over again already… and trying the 21-day cleanse, perhaps. But first… clean the damn juicer that’s been sitting on my shelves for so long.
Today’s breakfast included banana chards wraps, and some reading: Kristen’s introduction to Raw Foods. I was really interested, and curious to give raw foods a real go, but as the weather got darker, I got this craving for pizza and thought how bad I would miss the crunchy feeling of cooked dough. (Not drooling as I’m typing this… nope.) I know the dehydrator makes it possible to create raw crusts and crackers, but this option sounds a little scary right now, not to mention pricey… We’ll see.
