Green Pudding, Raw Peach Pie, and other Goodies

Years ago I went to Tonya Zavasta's workshop and discovered Green Pudding. She has the Beautiful on Raw website which has a lot of interesting information along with recipes. All she did was fill a powerful blender half full with greens and topped that off with fruit—in this case mango—and blended them together till smooth. It was so delicious! You can experiment with your choice of greens and fruit. It's a terrific way to get kids to eat their veggies.

Raw Peach Pie

My recipe was very similar to this one at Dr. Ritamarie's Vibrant Health blog. My crust was different, and I used a small amt of chia seeds and one mashed banana in the fruit filler. And I did not top mine with coconut (but had some coconut in the crust).

My Raw Nutty Crust: 
  • 2 cups soaked (overnight) raw whole almonds (walnuts or a mixture of nuts works too—you can substitute granola for one of the cups if desired.)
  • 7 large dates (soaked one hour)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • half handful of unsweetened coconut
  • 1 Tbs (or more) honey or maple syrup or fruit juice as needed to get a sticky consistency 
Process all in a food processor then pat this into your pie plate. Top with pie filling, arranging peach slices on top. Refrigerate. I like mine half frozen.

 Raw Strawberry Pie

The simplest raw strawberry pie recipe is this one at Hallelujah Acres. Search their recipe files for great 100% - 85% raw healthy choices. I've made this many times, but forgot to take a picture. (Mine did not look as pretty as the one shown at but it was delicious.)

 Lemon Love Cookies

Made with only FOUR simple ingredients:
  • Cashews
  • Lemon
  • Coconut
  • Dates
Here is the recipe I used: Lemon Love Cookies. But I flattened mine in a cookie shape and did not dip in coconut. I do love these. When you are not eating flour and sugar products, the natural foods are so tasty. The lemony flavor is tangy and it satisfies when I just need a little something. I kept my batch in the freezer to grab on-the-go. Very healthy snack!

Today I'll leave you with a quote from Thomas Edison:  

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”

  1. I tried the lemon cookies using the sun as my dehydrator and they turned out great! Oh, I used half hemp seed and half cashews. I would think these would be great little energy cookies for someone who needs extra calories!
