My sister and I have been trading recipes for a while now. Last year, she got serious about loosing weight and becoming fit (I think she has lost over 40 pounds to date! Congrats!). Someone introduced her to a cookbook on raw food, which she then also gifted to me. We have made quite a few recipes from that book. I was actually going to share one today, but my sister just sent me this recipe in an email. So. I am posting that instead.
This makes an excellent breakfast or mid day snack.
Take 2 small beets or 1 large one, tip and tail (so to speak), peel, cut it into 1″ to 2″ cubes and place in a food processor.
Add 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into workable pieces.
Add 1 granny smith apple, cored and cut into workable pieces.
Add 1/4 cup of walnuts or almonds.
Blend together. If your processor is large enough, then all the ingredients can be added at once. Mine is a wee thing and I do them all separately.
Dump into a bowl and add 1 Tbsp of oil (olive or flax or safflower, etc) and 1 Tbsp of lemon juice or Apple cider vinegar (I use the vinegar).
Mix well. Enjoy.
I’ve also found it very nice if you add some cinnamon.
This has a remarkable taste and is even better the next day after it has sat for a wee bit.
I will make it today for tomorrow’s breakfast as I happen to have an unused beet in my refridgerator.
