Fresh Fruit With Raw Almond Kream Breakfast (Or Dessert) Recipe
Posted Apr 10 2010 5:08am
Now that I’m off the cleanse I get to eat again which is great! Post-cleanse food for seven days is advised to be as raw as possible and alkaline forming which is fine with me because I eat high raw anyway. So I’ve been having fun with my food again and really enjoying the process of preparing and of course eating the food.
The first morning I got to eat again I made the most amazing fruit salad.
So amazing that I had to take a photo for you! I had gone to the organic food store the day before and allowed myself to pick out whatever organic fruits I wanted, regardless of the price. Blueberries and Strawberries were $10 a punnet that day but i didn’t care, I wanted my first meal to be a big reward for my cleansing efforts!
For the remainder of my breakfasts off the cleanse I’ve been keeping up with the fresh fruit in the morning, but adding a huge dallop of almond kream on top. It’s soooo delicious. I look forward to it every day.
It’s creamy and sweet and just divine! Here is the recipe:
1 cup almonds
1 cup water
2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
1 Tbsp of vanilla or the seeds from 1 vanilla bean
Combine all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
This is an Ani Phyo recipe from her book “Ani’s Raw Food Desserts” so check it out if you like the recipe. The only thing I changed from her version was the sweetener because she used agave and I’m trying to stop using agave due to all the controversy around it right now. I also think both maple syrup and honey taste amazing with this mix anyway!
I’ve also used this recipe as a dessert. The almond kream is AMAZING with banana. So I’ve cut up a banana in slices, poured a huge helping of the almond kream on top, then sprinkled coconut flakes, macadamia nuts and a trickle of maple syrup over the almond and kream. It is to die for …one of the tastiest and simplest desserts around. Very easy if you need to make something quickly and impress your friends in a super hurry!
Notice how I found this recipe in a dessert book and I eat it for breakfast? How awesome is that! Raw food is so incredibly amazing that way
