Two of her favorite desserts are (healthy) Chocolate Mousse and Peach Cobbler. For dinner she recommends Garlic Burgers with Cheese & Guacamole, which her son Jude likes!
- 1/4 C pitted medjool dates, soaked
- 1/4 C agave nectar or maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 C mashed avocado (1 1/2 avocado)
- 1/4 C plus 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/4 C water (I had to add a bit more)
Add all ingredients to vita-mix and viola! We added some fresh strawberries and then I decided to get creative and layer the mousse with Vanilla Creme Sauce (see recipe below)
Vanilla Creme Sauce
- 1 C soaked raw cashews
- 1/4 C plus 2 Tbsp water
- 2 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
Place all ingredients in blender and process on high until smooth. Chill for 30 min before serving.
- 3 C pecans (soaked and dried)*
- 1/2 C coconut flakes
- 1 tsp alcohol free vanilla
- couple sprinkles of salt
- 5 dates
- 5 dates
- 3 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 C water
5-7 peaches depending on size (about 6 Cups)
To make the crust process pecans, vanilla and salt until coarsely ground. Add dates and process until the mixture starts to crumble together. Use half of mixture to press into the the bottom of a pie dish, set the other half aside.
To make the syrup, process all “syrup” ingredients and then mix in with the peaches. Spoon the peach/syrup mixture onto the crust. Top with remaining pecan mixture, and eat it up, it will go fast!
4 C pecans
1 1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
enough water to fully cover the nuts in a large bowl
Soak overnight and then dehydrate for 12-24 hours or place on a cookie sheet and leave in the oven on warm for 6-8 hours.
Garlic Burgers with Pepper Cheese & Guacamole
Garlic and beef (haha…it really is that easy!) We normally use 3-4 cloves and mix in with 1 pound grass feed beef and then grill to your liking with sea salt and black pepper.
You can get fancy with this, but we were going for a fast and easy supper. I used 1 and half avocados, fresh lime juice and garlic salt to taste.
Black Pepper Cheese
- 1 C cashews (soaked mine for a few hours)
- Juice of 1 lemon (~2 Tbsp)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/8 C water
Blend in vita-mix until smooth and creamy.
Place on top of a some mixed greens and veggies and enjoy! I used some guac and cheese as baby food for Jude and he loved it!
