Acai Smoothie & Roastin’ Veggies
Good Afternoon friends! How’s the humpy day goin’ so far? I am sooooo glad you’re all diggin’ the Raw Vegan Cheesecake I posted earlier. To answer some random questions….cashews I think are best because they are a soft nut and lend well to blending and making a nice creamy filling. Macadamias may also work but almonds…nah, I probably wouldn’t. Not to mention, the dark skin on almonds would make the creamy visual look of the cheesecake have a lil more of a sandpaper look and that’s not quite as perrr-dey.
This is pretty if I do say so myself. Raw Vegan Cheesecake Goodness at it’s Finest.
And I’m also glad my appliance pep talk at the end of the post is helpin’ out. Woot!
This morning I popped a load o’ nanners in the Magic Box. The house smells so yummy. I also tried a few baby carrots cuz as you may recall from last time, my thinly sliced carrots were a shrivel fest.
I also made an Acai Berry Smoothie with some Acai Power Powder I received from Navitas Naturals. I used some TJ’s lowfat vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp Acai Power Powder, dash of agave, dash of stevia, 1/2 of a frozen nanner and blended.
Yumm. I love that I can get in on the Acai Craze without paying for an HFCS-spiked beverage with imitation acai that you find in some of those juice places. TWSS.
Also roasted up some veggies. Used coconut oil today vs. the last time I roasted veggies I used EVOO. Coconut oil also makin’ the house smell yumm.
Here’s 1 sweet potato cut up into fry slivers and a dozen baby carrots. 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, S & P, and a dash of ground ginger…Roasted covered for a half hour at 400F Convection.
And then uncovered for another 20 mins.
Voila. Very fall-like. Yeah, it’s only 90F here so falls a comin’.
What’s your fave thing to do once cooler weather hits?
Stay tuned tomorrow for a banging raw cookie dough kinda dessert….
