The month of August is almost to an end. The avocado trees are producing more avo’s than can be enjoyed. With choke avocados, Verda and I can produce an abundance of pies. We have been experimenting with our sublime creme pie, chocolate creme pies, banana creme pies, a mint chocolate ganache over coconut creme meringue, banana fig creme pies…..and much more. Many beautiful, delicious items have come out of the kitchen this month.
This was a yummy smoothie consists of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherrys, coco meat, coco water, vitamineral greens, maca, cinnamon, and topped with gRAWnola and coco shreds and LOVE!
I’ve been putting the dehydrator to use creating an abundance of FLAX CRAX, in a variety of flavors. The most recent flavor is similar to an onion bread recipe.
I created an amazing gRAWnola, which has become best friends with this week’s smoothies.
This past week I experimented with some extra coco milk by mixing it with frozen mixed berries to create a cocoberry ‘icecream’. I added the coconut meringue and crumbles of the pie crust (dates, coco shreds, fig, cashew, love), and topped with cinnamon! Breakfast or Dessert?
Where do I get all the coco’s?! Well, I haven’t yet mastered climbing the coco tree, so I use a ladder. I’m cheating! Once I collect the coco’s I get busy in w/ the machete! Daily routine….chop away!
I’ve also made a brazil nut/pumpkin seed pate, a sunflower seed cheese, guacamole w/ all the avos, salsa w/ tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers from the garden! It all just comes together. Begin from scratch…create a masterpiece!
Creating beauty in the kitchen is fun and exciting. Utilize what’s in the refrigerator and in the pantry……and WHA LA! You create something new and different every time! Life is full of surprises. You take each surprise and embrace it, whether it is a rain storm while driving or a lost puppy at your door step! Stop! Smile! Embrace your life, your health, your well being!
LIVE & LOVE
