• Creamy Strawberry Vanilla Vegan Ice Cream

    My son's favorite homemade ice cream recipe is Vegan Strawberry Vanilla Ice cream.
    Easy - Super easy to make with a high powered blender. It is so easy that I never have to measure the ingredients, so it is hard to mess up this recipe.
    Blender - This recipe was made in the Dynablend blender (Glass & plastic-free container). Note: Different size blenders might require you to adjust quantities to be able to blend thick substances.
    Ratio - You do not have to stick with my ratio. If you like it sweeter, add more dates, if you like it creamier add more cashews.
    Vanilla - Can be added to taste as much as you like. I have vanilla powder and I shake very generously as I like vanilla.
    Lecithin - in this recipe is optional, but if you can find GMO-free Soy Lecithin I think it is beneficial and it creates a more creamy and almost dairy-like taste. Another option is sunflower lecithin, but I only see it sold online.

  • Melon Seed Milk Recipe - Straight from Melon

    For a long time I wondered what do you do with melon seeds?

    NOT WASTE - Most people usually eat melon and discard melon seeds. And I am totally guilty of that. All my life, I either threw away or composted melon seeds. One day I said to myself, "What a waste of a highly nutritious food!" I tried to eat the seeds them, but it was too much work to get the seeds from their shell, and then I realized that I could just make melon seed milk, in the same way that I was making almond milk.
    EASY & SAFE MONEY
    - Yes! You can make very easily melon milk out of any melon seeds (Honeydew, Cantaloupe, (ect.), and it saves you money at the same time.
    WEIGHT LOSS - Contrary to a popular unscientific belief, that low-fat diets help you to lose weight, scientific studies actually show that including nuts and seeds (high in fat) in your diet can actually help you to lose weight, and even live longer!
    NUTRITION - I was unable to find the nutrition data of melon seeds, but squash and melon are in the same family, so I am guessing they will be similar in nutrients. According to http://nutritiondata.self.com squash seeds, are "a good source of Protein, Vitamin K, Iron and Copper, and a very good source of Magnesium, Phosphorus and Manganese."
    EQUIPMENT

    Blender - You do not need a high-speed blender (such as Vitamix or Blendtec) for making any kind of nut milk. We recommend using a glass jar blender (Dynablend Clean DB-950 or Oster Pro 1200) to avoid toxic chemicals from plastic leaching into your food. Click here to watch our videos for more details
    Nut Milk Bag - To avoid eating synthetic fibers and leaching toxic chemicals from nylon nut milk bag (often just relabeled paint strainers) into your food, I recommend using a 100% organic or natural nut milk bag.
    NOTE: On Amazon.com and Ebay.com there are many fake nut milk bags that claim to be "organic" but are in fact not organic, and not even fully natural. Click here to read our article EXPOSED! Fake Organic Hemp Nut milk Bags sold on Amazon.
    Strainer - If you do not have a nut milk bag, a stainless steel fine mesh strainer will also work well if you are only working with a small amount of seeds (1 cup or less).

    USES - Melon seed milk can be used in any dairy-free recipes to substitute for dairy milk, in carob smoothies, green smoothies, tropical mixed fruit smoothie and on your cereals and muesli.

  • Smooth Cashew Milk Recipe Without Straining - Reasons Not To Buy Cashew Milk

    PACKAGED PLANT-BASED "VEGAN" MILK  ARE NOT TRULY VEGAN 
    When I see vegans and caring people buying cartoned/bottled cashew milk, I get so sad and upset that I want to say something to them (but they might perceive it as rude). Instead, I channel my energy into making educational recipes, articles, and videos! I learned about plastic pollution and how it affects wildlife by watching documentaries like Plastic Planet, Plastic Cow, Tapped, A Plastic Ocean.

    Plastic is a huge problem for wildlife, it kills/harms billions of animals, possibly irreversible environment hazard. Carton boxes are made from layers of virgin wood, plastic, and aluminum that is expensive to recycle and rarely get recycled. " Only 20% of America has access to recycling facilities for Tetra Pak" Even if you are able to recycle a plastic bottle or carton box, plastic caps are not recyclable and plastic recycling just delays/slows down pollution and is a minor reduction! It is nice that cows milk (most live in concentration camp like environments) is being replaced with plant-based milks, but the current packaging is very wasteful of earth resources. If I can help to reduce and eliminate plastic pollution, then I will do whatever I can to promote environment and animal harm reduction (a core principle of veganism)!

    PRICE OF CASHEW IN STORE BOUGHT CASHEW MILK
    Would you pay $40-$75 a pound for cashews? Probably not, especially when you can get cashew pieces as low as $5/lb! But, if you buy a carton/bottle of cashew milk, this is how much you are paying for the few cashews used to make the boxed milk - which is just water with useless (tongue tricking) fillers/thickeners and possibly a bunch of health issues related to consuming plastic packaged food/drinks.

    Cost calculation for cashews in a carton of cashew milk:
    In a commercial store bought cashew milk there are 25 calories per cup, this is based on the ingredient list. Most of the calories come from the cashews. I will be generous and calculate that all of the 25 calories are from the cashews. 25 calories from cashews is only about 0.16 oz of cashews, which is about 2 cashew nuts! Therefore, in one 8oz cup, there is ONLY 2 CASHEWS!
    Based on boxed cashew milk 32 oz (4 cups) - cost ~$3, you pay $75/lb of cashews
    Based on boxed cashew milk 64 oz (8 cups) - cost $3.28. you pay $41/lb of cashews

    EASY - It takes only 1-2 minutes and does not require any straining or special equipment, just a low cost $60 glass blender* will make very smooth cashew milk, so hopefully that will give you no more excuses for buying bottled/boxed cashew milk! If you can add two ingredients into one container and press the buttons on a blender, then you can make a cashew milk!

    EQUIPMENT -  Blender* - You do not need a special high-powered, high-speed blender (such as Vitamix or Blendtec) for making any plant-based milks. 

    NOTE: According to independent studies, "BPA-free" plastic claims have been shown to be untrustworthy!  I recommend the $60  Oster Pro 1200* (glass jar blender without plastic on the bottom) to avoid the many toxic chemicals from plastic leaching into your food and avoid supporting the plastic manufacturing industry.  Click here to watch our videos about "BPA Free" claims & Blenders.

    USES - Homemade cashew milk can be used as any other milk - in

  • White Chocolate with Cacao Nibs Mesquite Smoothie

    I love to make smoothies with local foraged ingredients and hemp seeds, since they are high in omega 3. Sad and unfair that it is illegal to grow hemp seeds in the USA.
    Mesquite is a super food as well as other legumes, which is luckily widely available in many USA desert  cities,  (Nevada, Arizona, mesquite pods so yummy..., see my short video - Mesquite Pods so Yummy that Goats Fight (Butt Heads) over Mesquite!
