Post work out snack

Well now that you’ve completed a work out, don’t you deserve a sweet treat to refuel, speed up recovery, and give an electrolyte kick?

I made some blueberry sauce from 2 cups of blueberries, flaxseed, and a tiny bit of almond milk, and covered with it one banana,then sprinkled coconut on top. Very satisfactory!

Almond-berry coconut frostie

It’s wonderful to be able to come home to a large sunny back yard, play with the pup and, as you are enjoying your brand new running monsters (new shoes–wooohooo!) and planning the route for your evening run, beat the heat with this:

Raw vegan coconut truffles with cranberries and apricot

This recipe is just sinfully delicious. Somehow when you are a raw vegan, people assume you have given up desserts forever, and give you a pitiful look. I agree with the idea that depriving myself from sweets would be a true cause for pity. And so I don’t. Who says a raw vegan couldn’t enjoy an impossibly yummy sweet snack? Today, I am busting one more myth and making some scrumptious coconut cranberry apricot truffles. I am preparing these especially for my dear fellow health and nutrition nut and partner in crime, Josie <3.

Are you hungry?

Here is what you need:

1 cup of raw cashews

1 cup of raw almonds

6 spoons of dried raw cranberries;

1 cup of chopped up dried apricots;

2 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil;

1/2 cup of coconut, shaved;

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract;

4 tablespoons of water (for binding);

Sea salt.

Preparation:

Put the cashews, almonds, and shaved coconut in a food processor and blend until you reach a finely ground consistency.

Add the water, coconut oil, cranberries, apricots, and vanilla extract to the mix, and continue to blend until you have mixed all ingredients into a thick doe.

Roll up the doe into truffle balls, place on a plate and put in the freezer for about 40 minutes.

SCRUMPTIOUS! ❤
