Superfood Cheesecake

INGREDIENTS Filling: 3½ cups raw cashews (soaked overnight or in hot water for 20 minutes) 1 cup alkaline water 1/4 cup raw honey 1/2 cup maple syrup ½ cup coconut oil ½ cup lemon juice 2 vanilla beans, seeds scraped from the pods Crust: 2 cups raw walnuts 1/2 cup shredded coconut 10 Medjool dates, pitted ¼ tsp salt Topping: 1 cup raspberries 2 cup blueberries 2 Tablespoons raw honey 1 teaspoon Core Greens INSTRUCTIONS Place all of the crust ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the ingredients are mixed into a fine texture. Using a 9" spring form pan, cut parchment paper to line the bottom of the pan so the  cheesecake does not to stick to the bottom. Place the crust mixture on top and gently flatten it with your fingers or use the bottom of a measuring cup till smooth. For the main cheesecake filling, place all ingredients in a high-powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec. This will ensure that the filling becomes silky smooth, but you can also use your food processor. Blend for a minute or two, until thick and creamy. Pour your filling on top of the crust. Shake the pan gently to remove any air bubbles. Then, place your pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. While your cheesecake is hardening in the freezer, you can make your topping. Place all of the topping ingredients in your food processor (after you've cleaned it), and pulse it for 30 seconds. Then set aside until your cheesecake has hardened. After 30 minutes, your cheesecake should have hardened enough to place the topping. Gently spoon the berry mixture on top and place back in the freezer. Freeze your cheesecake for at least 4 hours before serving. OR, reserve the berry topping and pour over a slice of cheesecake. When you're ready to serve the cheesecake, take it out of the freezer at least 20 minutes before eating. It will be much easier to slice after it's softened. Top with additional raspberries and enjoy!

Cookie Inspired Superfood Smoothies

"Don't make eye contact...Don't make eye contact...Don't make eye contact" Are you like me this time of the year when walking into the grocery store? Those sweet smiles and cute informed girls with their mounds of cookie boxes and homemade signs are hard to avoid these days. Do you fall prey to their mesmerizing marketing? I don't blame you- their cookies are darn right delicious and addicting! I have fond memories of devouring Samoas and Thin Mints as a kid. But now I've grown up, became educated on food and have realized that my body literally rebuilds itself by the foods I chose to eat so therefore, I want the best and healthiest foods going in my mouth. Once you understand the ingredients that make up your favorite Girl Scout cookies, you may think twice about polishing off those boxes that are calling your name right now. To understand and dig deeper into these ingredients and why you shouldn't be consuming them, head HERE! I've found a way to enjoy my favorite cookie flavors with zero guilt and tons of benefits! SUPERFOOD SAMOA SMOOTHIE 1 cup Coconut Milk 1/2 Banana, frozen (if not frozen, add ice) 2 teaspoons Raw Cacao Powder 3 Large Dates, pitted 2 Tablespoons Hemp Seeds* 1 teaspoon Core Greens 2 teaspoons Coconut Extract (found HERE) 1/2 teaspoon Stevia (more or less to taste) Blend all the ingredients in a high powered blender and enjoy your Girl Scout cookie in a cup!   THIN MINT SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE 1 cup Nut Milk 1/2 Banana, frozen (if not frozen, add ice) 2 teaspoons Raw Cacao Powder 2 Tablespoons Hemp Seeds* 1 teaspoon Core Greens 1 teaspoon Peppermint Extract-found HERE 1/2 teaspoon Stevia (more or less to taste)   Blend all the ingredients in a high powered blender and enjoy your Girl Scout cookie in a cup!   *Feel free to sub the Hemp seeds for your favorite protein powder although Hemp seeds are my go to for raw protein. Two tablespoons equals 20 grams of protein that is full of enzymes, fiber and good omega fats. They blend beautifully and provide a creamy consistency without the chalky, grit that protein powders can leave behind.   Support your favorite Scout by a donation instead of a box! It's much easier to make a donation instead of detoxifying those harmful ingredients out of your body. By all means, support your favorite Girl Scout with a monetary donation but don't fall into the peer pressure of having to buy and consume their cookies. Your health is more important!   Cheers! Liz

Easy Elderberry Syrup

2 Cups Dried Elderberries (Great source found HERE) 4 Cups of Kangen 9.5 pH water 2 Cinnamon Sticks 1 Nub of Fresh Ginger, peeled 1 Cup Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother) 2 Cups Raw Honey (Local is best) Bring elderberries, water, cinnamon sticks and ginger to a boil. Reduce and simmer on low for 1 hour then let the mixture thoroughly cool. Take a potato masher and press the elderberries to release all their liquid goodness. Then, strain the liquid and set aside. In another bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar and raw honey together until combined. Add the vinegar/ honey mixture to the elderberry syrup and Voila, you have a wonderful immune boosting syrup rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and gut healing nutrients! Recipe yields approximately 4-5 cups of Elderberry Syrup. Stores for up to 8 months in the refrigerator. Dosage recommendations: Children- 1 teaspoon Adults- 1 Tablespoon To shorten the duration of cold or illness, take every 2 hours when symptoms arise. Our friends at Bulk Herb Store have an amazing selection of organic herbs, spices, teas, honey, accessories and more! They have a wealth of information on their website and are an excellent resource- Shop Bulk Herb Store. Excerpts from The ABC Herbal Both elderflowers and dried Elderberries contain substances which ease inflammation and pain. Dried Elderberries soothe the intestines and have been used for all inflammatory bowel diseases. They have a very gentle laxative action, which may explain their decongestant properties. They also have a mild tonic action to help arrest diarrhea. Many other herbalists besides myself have observed a strong connection between bowel problems and respiratory congestion. There also appears to be a strong connection between bowel obstructions and fevers in children. From Bulk Herb Store's Reading and/or Experience... Dried Elderberries are a food, and thus we keep it in the kitchen. Though they are not as moist or as sweet as raisins, we add them to many food recipes as we do raisins (hot cereals, vegetable dishes, stir-fry, waffles and pancakes and granola). It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing) and children. It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose. As is the case with most dried fruit, Dried Elderberries should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. These suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.
