'Chocolate Mylk' mustaches are the best

I was craving something chocolate again last night! SOOOOO I made some Brazil Nut Mylk, and whipped in some cocoa and agave and YUM! I remember when I was pregnant with Ali, I drank a glass Of the sugar-filled, liquid plastic every day that it was in the house. The side effects were not my friend and no fun. YAY For being introduced to RAW! Plus it feels so great to finish off a chilled glass and not feel guilty, as if you had just consumed 4 tablespoons of bleached sugar. And... NO FLEM!!!! I know that sounds disgusting but it is one of the many reasons I avoid milk, at all cost.
Want to know what's more fun than a glass of Raw Mylk, or a smoothie? One in a cute to-go cup! I love these things. They are so convenient and no mess. I get them at Cash and Carry in bulk with cute neon straws (hot pink) for under $10. I just wanted to pass that on, stay away from the food in there, I'm not sure it's even digestible, J/K, but they do have LOTS of cute packaging and such!

Chocolate mylk:

1 cup Brazil nuts (or any nuts you like macadamia are wonderful in this) soaked 8 hr and rinsed
3 cup purified water strain through nut bag or cheese cloth.
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/8 cup agave
1/8 cup maple syrup
1 teas vanilla
Blend and enjoy over ice or chilled ;o)

Oh ya, I almost forgot! SUSHI IS YUM! I wasn't wanting to eat rice and have it turn into sugar, as I need a good night's sleep tonight. Still, the craving for wasabi and cucumbers had to be satisfied, so I whipped this up! Try them! They are SO delicious and easy.

You will need:
Nori Sheets
and a variety of chopped and sliced vegi's
I used:
Red pepper
Alfalfa sprouts

To assemble: I first mixed the avocado into a paste with a pinch of sea salt. I then spread it on the nori sheet which was on a piece of wax paper (I can't find my sushi wrap thingy's) and layered the vegis in a small thin line, then rolled them and cut them. Enjoy!

  1. So I have been wanting to try Raw Food, but have to idea which book would be best to start out with. Can you recommend a good one? And with all the coconuts macadamia nuts, etc, did your food bill go up? Thank you so much!
