Brazil Nut – Vanilla Ice Cream

This is my favorite ice cream! LOVE the taste of brazil nut milk. This recipe is from “Raw For Dessert” of Jennifer Cornbleet.

Ingredients:
2 Cups Brazil Nut Milk (see below)
1/2 Cup Cashews, soaked for 8 to 12 hours
1/2 Cup Agave
2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Vanilla Beans
1/8 Teaspoon Salt

Pour 1/2 cup of the brazil nut milk and all the cashews in a blender and process until very smooth. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups brazil nut milk and all of the agave, vanilla extract, vanilla beans, and salt and process until blended. Transfer to a jar and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days. Put the mixture in a ice-cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.

Believe it or not there are a ton of athletes who thrive on a plant based diet and think it’s important to highlight these people and their accomplishments.  Ill be featuring these individuals from time to time, hoping to inspire and break down any misconceptions about plant based diets and performance. – Priscilla

Words like “ultra” should not be used frivolously, but ultra runner Scott Jurek fully deserves the descriptor. His resume of races is crazy, including 24-hour runs and over-100 miles in length. In 2010, he set a U.S. all-surface record in the 24-Hour Run with 165.7 miles. He was named Ultra-Runner of the Year three times by Ultrarunning Magazine. With the publishing of his acclaimed book “Eat and Run,” Jurek extends his accomplishments off the trail.

What could fuel such feats? For Jurek, a big source of his success has been a wholesome plant-based diet. As a graduate student, Jurek noticed how a diet in high-quality food benefited those living active lifestyles. Adopting a plant-based diet in 1999 was the needed element to spark his astounding career. [Read more...]

My raw workshop in Seattle was a lot of work, but fully worth it!!! Much like an excellent dish, there was plenty of preparation and work, all made worth it by the payoff of sharing good food with friends.

Seattle is such an incredible place for those interested in health, food, and environment, and was such a cool location for my workshop where i was able to share tips for living raw. With the help of Air, Puget Sound Creative, MAKERS, and Bluewater Vodka the workshop was a complete success: inspirational, instructive, social and fun.

I was blown away by MAKERS, where the event was held at. Those new to raw foods were surprised to find a menu that included my raw flat bread pizza, yummy drinks and raw cheesecake. As we ate, the looks on the girls faces said it all! At that point I thought to myself “mission accomplish!” [Read more...]
