This recipe is ridiculously easy to make and it tastes amazing. It’s berry and ice-cream season (ok ice-cream is an every season food I know) so I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by marrying the two into a delicious blend of blackberry super-food ice-cream – raw vegan style.
What makes this smoothie so darn pretty? Those in the know, know! Can you guess? It’s pretty obvious once you’ve figured it out.
That’s right! It’s a little bit of beet. And a little beet goes a long way. Not only are they nutritious and delicious, but they make for a wonderful natural and healthy food coloring. Whip up a strawberry coconut cream smoothie right now, and feel the beet!

Vanilla has a bit of a reputation. And not a very exciting one.
We say that’s unfair! Vanilla can be just as thrilling as those other spices. Vanilla can get down, too! And to prove it, here’s a sensuous dessert in which vanilla isn’t just providing the ambiance: vanilla is front and center! These perfect little squares are all about vanilla.
How you choose to use with them is up to you. But I bet they’d make for an awesome date-night snack! Move over chocolate, it’s vanilla’s turn to shine!
Playing a supporting role is another delicious thing: coconut! Coconut and vanilla, what could be better?
Chia can be a wonderful addition to your diet just for fiber content alone and chia pudding is a great way to eat this wonderful and healthy seed.
Chia is high in fiber… The dietary fiber content is approximately 56.5 g per 100 g of seeds — 14.1 g being soluble. Unlike dietary fiber from cereal grains, the soluble fiber content of chia seeds takes more time to travel through the intestinal tract, which helps add bulk to the stool and provides a slower rate of glucose absorption. MayoClinic.com recommends men 50 and younger to consume 38 g of fiber a day; women, 25 g. So, as you can see, chia can be a wonderful addition to your diet just for fiber content alone.
The sweetness of the strawberries in this chia pudding balances the tartness of the rhubarb. The healthy fats found in the coconut cream helps to mellow out the tartness just a tad as well as giving it a wonderful smooth and creamy mouth-feel.
This chia pudding is cooling, refreshing and filling, Enjoy!
