Oh, these are so good!

I know it looks quite similar to the previous post, but it doesn’t taste anything like it.ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients:

  • 1/2c of chopped parsnip
  • 1/4c of raw cashews
  • ยฝ sheet of (raw)ย ย  nori
  • 1 cucumber
  • ยฝ an avocado

Remove the skin from your cucumber.

Using a vegetable peeler, slice your cucumber into โ€˜ribbonsโ€™ lengthwise. Set aside.

Place the parsnip, cashews and nori into your food processor and process until well combined, kind of resembling rice.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Spread about a tablespoon of the parsnip mixture down the middle of the cucumber ribbon, leaving a bit of room at each end. Roll up like a sushi roll, top it with a piece of avocado and enjoy!

Super simple and super nutritious!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!

Tropical Cocktail

June 14th, 2013 047

HAPPY Friday, friends!

๐Ÿ™‚

We noticed our neighbor working awfully hard in the garden (and the sun) today and thought we would send over a tasty cocktail for him to enjoy… we do love to share!

So simple and SO delish!ย  Grown up version or the version suitable for all ages, either way… it’s fantastically refreshing!

For the grown up version…

  • 2 or 3 pineapple juice cubes
  • 1c of ONE coconut water
  • 1oz (or less) of malibu rum

Give it a light stir and enjoy…responsibly!

All we need now are three more Glass Dharma straws!

๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cantaloupe Smoothie

June 11th, 2013 080

This just might be my new favorite way to get the morning started!

๐Ÿ™‚

Cantaloupe is SO good for our beautiful bodies…it often gets overlooked on our regular trips to the grocery store, but we’re gonna change that.ย  It’s loaded with goodness and we certainly love a nutrition powerhouse!

What we used for two of us…

  • 1/2 a cantaloupe
  • 1 banana
  • 6 rooibos tea ice cubes
  • 1c of ‘So Delicious’ coconut milk

So simple.

Whiz it up in your vitamix or blender until smooth and enjoy.

We enjoy our smoothies even more now that we have the beautiful glass straws from Glass Dharma!

You really should have one!ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚
