Yield: 3/4 cup

Did you know you could make homemade almond butter in a food processor? Raw almond butter can be purchased at most natural food stores, but homemade is more
economical and fresh. I like it with celery stalks and raisins (remember Ants on a Log?), smeared on a banana, or sandwiched between two apple slices.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds, unsoaked
  • Dash salt

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • food processor
  • rubber spatula

Put the almonds and salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the almonds are ground into a paste, stopping occasionally to scrape down the work bowl with a rubber spatula. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Almond Butter will keep for 3 months.

Yield: 2 cups, 4 servings

Cashew Milk is especially quick to make, as it does not need to be strained.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • blender
  • rubber spatula

Put the water, cashews, maple syrup, and optional vanilla extract in a blender. Process on high speed until smooth. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Cashew Milk will keep for 5 days. It tends to separate, so shake well before using.

Per serving: calories: 114, protein: 3 g, fat: 8 g, carbohydrate: 8 g, fiber: 1 g, sodium: 2 mg

Cashew Cream: Decrease the water to 1 cup. Cashew cream makes a good substitute for dairy cream in coffee or tea.

Chocolate Cashew Milk: Add 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and an additional 2 1/2 teaspoons of maple syrup.

Yield: 1 serving

Make a large batch (see note) of this cereal so it will be ready when a sweet craving strikes.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons raisins, unsoaked
  • 1 tablespoon chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans, unsoaked
  • 2 teaspoons sunflower or pumpkin seeds, unsoaked
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup, whole cane sugar, or coconut sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk, or 1/4 cup Strawberry Cashew Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • small bowl

Put the oats, raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds, and optional maple syrup in a small bowl. Toss gently to combine. Serve with the Almond Milk and berries.

Per serving: calories: 374, protein: 11 g, fat: 18 g, carbohydrate: 43 g, fiber: 9 g, sodium: 5 mg

Notes
• Stored in a sealed container in the pantry, Muesli will keep for 3 months. If you will be storing it and want to include a sweetener, use whole cane sugar or coconut sugar instead of maple syrup. Alternatively, add the maple syrup just before serving.
• For soft Muesli, soak in 1/4 cup of water for 8 to 12 hours at room temperature. Serve with the Almond Milk and berries.
• For a large batch: Increase the amounts to 3 cups of rolled oats, 1 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of chopped almonds, 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds, and 1/4 cup of optional whole cane sugar. Yield: 4 cups, 8 servings.

“Carpaccio” is an Italian word that refers to ingredients that are sliced paper-thin and arranged attractively on a plate. Try dessert carpaccios made from any fruit you like, such as pineapples, melons, fresh figs, or pears.

  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Pinch ground cinnamon

Equipment

  • measuring cups and spoons
  • citrus juicer or reamer
  • small mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • cutting board
  • paring knife
  • chef’s knife

Arrange the mango slices on a plate. Put the agave nectar, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Drizzle over the mango slices. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, if desired.

Mango Carpaccio with Strawberries and Kiwifruit: Add 1/2 cup (4 ounces) of thinly sliced strawberries and 1 kiwifruit, peeled and thinly sliced, to the plate of sliced mangoes.
