Acai Smoothie & Roastin' Veggies

Posted Nov 11 2009 10:03pm
Good Afternoon friends!  How's the humpy day goin' so far?  I am sooooo glad you're all diggin' theRaw Vegan Cheesecake I posted earlier.  To answer some random questions... .cashews I think are best because they are a soft nut and lend well to blending and making a nice creamy filling.  Macadamias may also work but almonds...nah, I probably wouldn't.   Not to mention, the dark skin on almonds would make the creamy visual look of the cheesecake have a lil more of a sandpaper look and that's not quite as perrr-dey.   

This is pretty if I do say so myself.  Raw Vegan Cheesecake Goodness at it's Finest.

And I'm also glad my appliance pep talk at the end of the post is helpin' out.  Woot!

This morning I popped a load o' nanners in the Magic Box.  The house smells so yummy.   I also tried a few baby carrots cuz as you may recall from last time, my thinly sliced carrots were a shrivel fes t.


I also made an Acai Berry Smoothie with some Acai Power Powder I received from Navitas Naturals.  I used some TJ's lowfat vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp Acai Power Powder, dash of agave, dash of stevia, 1/2 of a frozen nanner and blended.


Yumm.  I love that I can get in on the Acai Craze without paying for an HFCS-spiked beverage with imitation acai that you find in some of those juice places.  TWSS.


Also roasted up some veggies.  Used coconut oil today vs. the last time I roasted veggies I used EVOO.  Coconut oil also makin' the house smell yumm.

Here's 1 sweet potato cut up into fry slivers and a dozen baby carrots.  2 Tbsp Coconut Oil, S & P, and a dash of ground ginger...Roasted covered for a half hour at 400F Convection.

 And then uncovered for another 20 mins.


Voila.  Very fall-like.  Yeah, it's only 90F here so falls a comin'.

What's your fave thing to do once cooler weather hits?

Stay tuned tomorrow for a banging raw cookie dough kinda dessert....
