Rawlfredo Sauce

Yes, I made that up. I find it fun 🙂 It’s a raw Alfredo Sauce. Because I love creamy delicious sauces but my health cannot afford to indulge in them often, I have created my own. It tastes amazing on zucchini pasta, as a dip or pretty much anything you would normally use a creamy alfredo sauce on. I love coming up with recipes like this because as a french woman, butter and cream are part of my heritage. I do not want to give them up. Nor do I want to give up feeling amazing. So I can eat this kind of sauce anytime I want, and feel like I am staying true to my roots, and indulge in the real stuff on occasion.

Lemon Cashew Rawcoroons

These are a spinoff of macaroons. A wholesome, nutritious spinoff. They are becoming quite a staple of raw treats I like to make for people. This is the first of many rawcoroon recipes I will be sharing. I am having fun experimenting with flavors! Please feel free to ask if you would like to have me try making a specific flavor! I am always up for new ideas!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups shredded coconut

  • 1/2 cashew pieces
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • 2 TBS coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup agave or any liquid sweetener
  • 1/8 cup water

Steps:

  • in a large bowl mix first 4 ingredients
  • in a small bowl or blender mix all the rest
  • combine both mixtures until well incorporated
  • try not to eat all the mixture before it makes its way onto the mesh screen
  • scoop into little balls and put on mesh screen on dehydrator
  • dehydrate for about 8 to 10 hours, or until desired texture. I like mine dry on the outside and moist on the inside.
