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.
1 1/2 cups cashews (dry measure), soaked at least 4 hours
1/8 cup lemon juice
2/3 cup water
1/8 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic ( I would have added more if the kids weren’t eating it)
1 tsp salt
1 TBS nutritional yeast
1 TBS fresh parsley (optional)
Put everything in the blender and blend on high.
Adjust water according to desired consistency. This one came out pretty thick, which I really like.
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!
2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup almond flour (made from whole almonds, blended down into a flour, not the store bought flour)
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
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.
Blow peoples minds away with these tasty wholesome treats!! Or eat them all by yourself 😉
