Raw Persimmon Cheesecake with Pomegranate Coulis

I am really proud of this cheesecake – I think it might be the first raw persimmon cheesecake to hit the interwebs! I couldn’t find a recipe for raw persimmon cheesecake so I made my own based on Sweetly Raw’s Mandarin Orange Cheesecake on a Pecan Ginger Crust with a Cranberry Pomegranate Compote, and Candied Pecans. I give it a 4/5 Happy Monkeys.  The texture is spot on and it makes a nice, healthy treat.

More Pizza! Raw Pizza Margherita

This raw pizza margherita is an easy follow-on to my last pizza recipe (Raw “Pizza Supreme”).  I used the same crust and cheese and just added some fresh tomatoes, dill and basil.  What could be easier?  Also for this one, I didn’t dehydrate it because I wanted that fresh flavor.  Instead, I just took the crust and cheese out of the fridge a little early so they could warm up to room temperature.  This recipe get a 4/5 Happy Monkeys, only because it is simpler and is missing the complexity that the sausage brings to the Pizza Supreme.  Still very delicious though! Unfortunately, the buckwheat bothered my stomach, but this could easily be done with an almond-based crust, or even just some raw crackers.

Yum Yum! Raw “Pizza Supreme”

Raw Pizza Supreme

I love this recipe for Raw Pizza Supreme from naomipoe in the Raw Freedom Community forums!  It was my first time attempting any raw food with buckwheat and it was much easier than I expected.  After reading all the posts and links in this thread, I found out that you only have to soak the buckwheat for 30 minutes! No sprouting required!  Thus, buckwheat is actually easier, not to mention cheaper, than using nuts as a base.  The only unfortunate part is that my tummy didn’t react well to the buckwheat.  I am learning more and more that it is just not gluten that I react too, but most grains too.  Even though buckwheat isn’t officially a grain, it still set me off 😦 It’s too bad because I really liked both making and eating this crust.

This recipe would have gotten a 5/5 Happy Monkeys but I had to downgrade it since it upset my stomach.  It still gets a 4/5 Happy Monkeys because of how tasty it is but next time I will try it with a buckwheat-free almond-based crust.

Wow! Delicious Vegan Fettucini Alfredo.. and Super Healthy too!

I just made cupcakes and kale’s  high protein cauliflower alfredo sauce recipe that I found on Diet Dessert and Dog’s Wellness Weekend.  I love this new carnival that Ricki has implemented – with her healthy guidelines, it makes it easy to find recipes that fit into my “No Food Diet.”  Anyway, I am so glad I found this Fettucini Alfredo recipe because it is PHENOMENAL! I was shocked and amazed by how good this is, not to mention how easy to make it is. I have made many a “fake” alfredo and they are almost always awful, but not this one! It is fantastic! I can’t recommend it highly enough – it is delicious and extremely healthy.

Raw Blueberry Smoothie

I just had to post this blueberry smoothie recipe because it is freaking delicious.  My usual blueberry smoothie recipe is a banana, frozen blueberries, lots of soymilk, water and ice.  But I thought it would be good to try to cut down on the massive amount of soy I’m eating these days, so I tried a new smoothie recipe based on the one in Ani Phyo’s Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen Cookbook.  And I like this one even better than my usual smoothie.  I threw the strawberries in at the last minute because they were just hanging around in the fridge, but I think they totally made this smoothie.  Before I put them in, it was a bit too sweet from the dates.

Ani’s Raw Garden Scramble

I was listening to Ani Phyo on Raw Mom, Cooked Dad today (which has been awesome, by the way) and was inspired to pull out her Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen Cookbook and make her garden scramble.  It’s a recipe I’ve only made once before last year but I made the full recipe and was really sick of it by the time I finished multiple meals of it.  This time, I only made a half recipe, which still makes a lot.  I ate two bowls and still have just as much left over.  Maybe next time I’ll only make a quarter recipe.  It’s good but it has a strong tumeric, almost mustardy taste, so a little goes a long way. I give this 3/5 happy monkeys.

Raw Pumpkin Pie With Vanilla Cream – OMG!

Another recipe culled from EachPeachPearPlum’s Thanksgiving 101 thread.  Oh my god, is this good.  Wow, wow, wow.  This was the highlight of our Thanksgiving dinner.  All my cooked friends loved it and you’d never know it was raw. It also freezes well so you can enjoy it later.  No question 5/5 happy monkeys.  This freakishly delicious recipe was also submitted to The Nourishing Gourmet’s awesome Pennywise Platter Thursday.
