New Product: Lucuma Cookie Bites!
I have a delicious new superfood product I call Lucuma Cookie Bites, filled with creamy coconut, lucuma fruit powder, maca root, raw honey, wild brazil nuts and spices. These taste just like little cake doughnuts, I am told :) Sweet and buttery, the perfect snack.
There are also some new recipes and a video recipe on my blog that are there to inspire the creative forces within. The video, if you have yet to see, is a recipe for Strawberry & Cacao Caramel Layer Bars, truly a treat. This easy recipe can be done quickly, and is great to serve those new to raw foods, since it has familiar flavors and nice layered textures.
One more note, I would love if you share my website/videos/recipes with the people you know. My goal is to share delicious, nutritious and fun food with those that love being healthy and want to make it themselves. So if you could take a moment to help inspire others around you, whether you make a recipe yourself and share it with a friend, or you send my information along to those that want to make this kind of food, I really would appreciate the community spirit that this kind of superfood, whole foods lifestyle needs :)
Love & Blessings,

Cherimoya Cream Tartlets
I love a sweet treat that is bite sized and full of bold flavors. This recipe is versatile and can be adapted to fit the season. Cherimoyas are ripe in California right now, and I had my first since being in Hawaii this week! This exotic fruit tastes like bubblegum and is very sweet. I recommend eating a cherimoya fresh, then using one to incorporate into a recipe if you have extra, since they are so delicious on their own. The Cherimoya cream is simple and highlights tropical flavors, to mingle into a delicate cream that is fit for a bright sunny day. You may use any crust/cookie recipe you wish to pair with the cherimoya cream, but this cacao recipe works well. The crust is an easy place to add herbs and superfoods, since the fats from the nuts and coconut can stand up to the strong and bitter flavors of herbs, and balance them with the right combinations.
I am also adding a raw dairy recipe here, as a filling, and the same crust can be used as the base. The star ingredient here is raw cream. If you can't find raw cream, but raw milk is available, just let the raw milk sit for 12-24 hours and let the cream rise to the top of your bowl or cream separator. Then you can skim off the cream. You may need to separate the cream a few times to get a thick whipped cream texture for the end product. You could potentially use young coconut meat or your favorite yogurt in this recipe as well, for a simple, creamy and smooth filling.

� cup brazil nuts
3 T cacao powder

Real Whipped Cream

Mix all ingredients in a food processor for 30-45 seconds, or until whipped cream is forming soft peaks. Scrape down sides and lightly pulse until the peaks are stiff. Pour into Chocolate dough cups.
