Green Pesto – Easy Raw Recipe

 

 

This pesto is super easy to make and delicious. I like to serve it with pasta but feel free to enjoy it the way you want to.

Ingredients

2-3 handful of fresh basil

2-3 handful of fresh parsley

3 garlic cloves, if you don’t like the taste of garlic use less

1/3 cup  ( 5 tbsp) seeds of your choice. I used some ready bought mix of different seeds

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 handful cashews ( soaked over night)

1/8 cup  ( 30 ml) apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup ( 80 ml) extra virgin olive oil

black pepper

 

Put everything in a blender and there you go.

COCONUT CHOCOLATE ENERGY BALLS

Raw & Vegan Energy Balls made with coconut flour and dates. 

I love to come home after work and snack on a couple of energy balls. Usually I am hungry and they fill me up just enough so I don’t feel stuffed before dinner. I created this recipe because  I wanted to use some of my coconut flour that I bought per accident. Sometimes I apparently can not differentiate between coco and cacao when buying stuff 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup or 240 ml coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 10 dates
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup or 120 ml  water,  or as much as necessary so the balls stick together

Put all the ingredients in a blender. Then shape the paste into balls using your hands or a spoon. Refrigerate.

With love,
