Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

I have been perusing RFR for a while now, but haven't posted a blog yet.  What made me decide to write one?  My new favorite thing!

After getting in from grocery shopping I started setting up all these things I got to soak.  Some wheatberries for rejuvelac, flax seeds for crackers, buckwheat for crunchies, and a few more things.  I got so caught up in all the prep work that  I didn't realize until just now I was starving!  My juice from this morning was long gone and my stomach was rumbling.

As I said, I just went shopping so I had a vast array of choices, too many in fact.   I had no idea what to eat, I had too many options to decide on just one thing.

Enter Raw Food Rehab.

I came on and hopped around the kitchen a bit when I came across an avocado yogurt.   It had two ingredients and took as long to make as it would to blend it up.   Sold.

Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone so I changed it a bit, but what resulted tastes so good I had to share!

What I used:

1 avocado

2 medium bananas

1/2 cup mixed berries (i used a frozen blend)

2 tsp ground flax seed mixed with two Tspn fresh water

drizzle of honey if needed

What I did:

In the food processor blend the avocado and bananas until smooth.  Taste.   Get super excited.

Add berries and blend again.  Realize all that liquid thinned out your yogurt a bit.  Take another bite while you decide what to do.

Add flax seed and water as a thickener, and the tiniest drizzle of honey to sweeten it.

Pour in your favorite bowl.

You could probably garnish it with any number of things: nuts, fresh berries, some fresh grated coconut would be good.

I had no time for such things, and gobbled it all down.

Maybe I licked the bowl.

 

I'm really glad avocados were on sale and that there's a few more in my fruit bowl.  I feel like with the avocado/banana base this could be such a versitile recipie, and I'm sure I'll play around with it some more!

 

Happy not cooking!

@ Raven, I ground the flax seeds and then let them sit in the water for maybe two minutes before adding it in.  They soak up the water pretty quickly.

@veganforlife, it was your post I saw that inspired this deliciousness.  I did get to throw in  a few frozen strawberries, but just avocado and fresh strawberries sounds ha-mazing!

@Ayn,  it is!  try it!
