wpid-20150330_142508.jpgDIVINE DELICIOUSNESS VERSION-above, but don’t add almonds, I used this product I chanced upon with mulberries, macadamia. cashews and other great gems… and I added another tablespoon of raw cacao nibs, hemp seeds and nutty, trace mineral rich powder called mesquite.  Try it!  It complements the cacao blissfully!  haha.. get it?  Bliss Mix…

PEANUTTY VERSIONS -put in 1/4 cup of peanut butter, peanuts (instead of almonds and walnuts), ..and bit more salt to give a more satisfying taste and mouth feel for his heartier palate.) and then

MACA BERRY POPwpid-20150402_112552.jpg -do the peanutty version and then add maca powder while mixing ingredients and place freeze dried raspberries onto the batter after spreading the mixture onto your teflex sheets.

NANA LOVES CACAO -back to the peanutty version, but instead of using dates, mix in mashed banana to sweeten.  I would recommend at least one large, ripe banana so the flavor is present and not too subtle… Cacao nibs are great in this as well as the mesquite powder.  I laid this down thick to make it in a brick-like granola for specific use in a yogurt.

Then I got into chia puddings… and am kinda hooked! The two you here are my carob-date-naner and berry loving parfaits

wpid-20150328_211029.jpgChia seeds, preferably white, soaked in coconut cream with added cinnamon layered between sliced berries or between dates, nuts, and more banana… I also let the chia soak in carob powder as well as dates for the decadent “chocolate-y” version. Feel free to use real cacao powder and nibs for extra pow!  Having the pudding around also makes a great thickening agent for your superfood smoothies!

Lastly, I love sprouted and dehydrated nuts.  Nut butters from sprouted, then dehydrated nuts truly make my tummy and taste buds grin…  My two fav almond butters for you to check out 🙂
