Raw & Vegan Double Cacao Pudding

I doubled this recipe and I am so glad I did 🙂 It was deeelish! Super chocolatey and smooth pudding. MMMM! 2 young thai coconuts gave me about 2 cups of coconut meat. This is one of those raw dishes that anyone would love (except if they did not like chocolate!). This also left me with delicious coconut water leftovers that we happily used in our smoothies. So refreshing and good!

Cucumber-White Grape Gazpacho

gazpacho

This is a really great summer soup. Simple, fast and so refreshing! It is lighter and fresher than a traditional tomato based gazpacho, plus it is always fun to mix things up. As I have said before, I love raw soups and how simple they are. This involves dicing and blending and that is it! I love having some of the mixture whole since it adds such a nice texture to this soup.

I love tomatillos with their texture and surprising flavor! They are so gorgeous! If you have never cooked with tomatillos before, they are a treat! They have a papery husk that you peel off and they look similar to green tomatoes. But the taste is the surprising part as they are tart and almost citrus-like.

Cucumber-White Grape Gazpacho

2 cups peeled, seeded, and diced cucumbers
2 cups seeded and diced tomatillos
2 cups diced white grapes
1/4 cup ginger juice
salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste

Dice all the ingredients. Set aside 1/4 of the diced mixture and blend the rest. Pour the blended mixture over the rest and Enjoy!
