Cacao Rawcoroon

When it comes to my taste buds, I can never go wrong with chocolate, well… except for that one time…. but I learned 😉  

My husband is the same. If I present him with something chocolatey, I know he will devour it happily. So I created this rawcoroon after the lemon one. Because, well I love lemon too. And I was actually inspired to start making rawcoroons when I had an expensive store bought lemon one. So here is my chocolate indulgence for today.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond flour (made from whole almonds blended down into a flour, not the store bought kind)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 raw cacao powder
  • salt
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 1/8 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 TBS coconut oil

Steps:

  • in a large bowl mix first 4 ingredients
  • in a small bowl or blender mix remaining ingredients
  • combine everything until well incorporated
  • don’t let husband come in and eat everything out of the bowl
  • scoop into little balls on the mesh screen of the dehydrator
  • dehydrate for about 8 to 10 hours, depending on what consistency you want and also what size balls you made. I like mine crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. 

Makes about 12 golf size balls. 

 

 

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!

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

Steps:

  • in a small bowl or blender mix all the rest

Blow peoples minds away with these tasty wholesome treats!! Or eat them all by yourself 😉 

Mango Sorbet with Strawberry Coulis

We just had a fun day in the sun and it seemed like the perfect way to end a great day was with ice cream. Although I do love ice cream and frozen yogurt, I try to limit the frequency of which I have them. Thankfully I had a bunch of frozen mangoes in my freezer ready to be made into sorbet!! This sorbet is so creamy and rich you wouldn’t believe it’s just mangoes!! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did 🙂

Ingredients for sorbet:

  • Frozen MANGOES!!! I had three small ziploc bags filled. That’s what I used. If it were all chopped up I would say maybe 2 or 3 cups? 

Ingredients for coulis:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 1/8 cup coconut oil
  • 1 TBS raw honey

Steps:

  • make coulis first by blending all the ingredients on high until very well incorporated. Set aside.
  • run mangoes through champion juicer with the blank attachment. 
  • Put in bowls and enjoy!!!

This made barely enough for 4 of us. Next time I will add another ziploc bag of mangoes (or two 😉 )

I haven’t tried making this in the food processor like I do my banana ice cream, if anyone tries it, let me know how it turns out!!

Mango Coconut Pudding

I love Mangoes. I love coconuts. I love pudding. I really love guiltless treats. So here it is.

Steps:

  • Put in blender and blast on high until smooth!
  • Top with anything you like
  • Enjoy!!
