Incan Berry Truffles

This sweet and sour little berry makes an awesome base to the decadent truffle that's perfect for Fall!



Drain and rinse the incan berries. Place in a food processor or your Vitamix with the flour, coconut, natural sweetener and water. Blend until the berries are broken down and everything is well combined. The mixture should hold together when pressed between your fingers. Transfer to a bowl and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Once slightly hardened, roll the dough into balls about 1 tsp in size and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Melt the nibs and coconut oil in a dehydrator.
Dip the incan berry balls into the chocolate, return to the parchment paper, and repeat the process until all the balls are dipped. Place in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes until chocolate is hardened.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Raw Brownie Bites

Eat clean and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time - plus get a dose of protein while at it!

Mix all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl until evenly combined.
Add a bit more almond milk if it seems too try (it should be similar to cookie dough).
Roll 1 tablespoon of dough into a smooth ball and place on parchment paper.
Repeat until the dough is gone, then eat or let them chill in the fridge.

Easy Garlic and Herb Cashew Cheese

This super easy to make creamy cashew cheese is soft, spreadable and delicious! This vegan rendition is infused with lemon, garlic, fresh herbs, and nutritional yeast for that extra cheesy flavor.


  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (1 Tbsp or 6 g)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder, plus more to taste
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 2 lemons, juiced with a handheld citrus juicer
  • 3/4 cup  water
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp (8 g) finely minced fresh herbs 

Place cashews in a bowl and cover with cool water. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator to soak for 12 hours. Once soaked, drain cashews thoroughly and add to food processor. Add minced garlic, garlic powder, lemon zest, lemon juice, water, nutritional yeast, salt and olive oil.
Process until very creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Then taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lemon zest for tartness, nutritional yeast for cheesiness, garlic for zing, or salt for balance. Place a fine mesh strainer (or colander) over a large mixing bowl, and lay down two layers of cheesecloth . Use a spatula to scoop all cheese over the cheesecloth, then gather the corners and twist the top gently to form the cheese into a "disc." Secure with a rubber band.
Place in refrigerator to set for 6-12 hours, or until excess moisture has been wicked away, and it holds its form when released from the cheesecloth. To serve, coat with chopped herbs and a bit more lemon zest (handle gently). Enjoy chilled with your favorite raw crackers or vegetables.

Natural Whipped Body Butter Recipe

Natural Whipped Body Butter Recipe

We love making natural beauty products - and they are one of our favorite gift ideas since they can be easily customized and are excellent for relatives, friends, pregnant moms, babies and even those with sensitive skin. Add essential body oils to customize - think citrus and lavender in spring and summer and peppermint in the winter.

In a double boiler or glass bowl, combine all ingredients except essential oils.
Bring to medium heat and stir constantly until all ingredients are melted.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Move to fridge and let cool another 1 hour or until starting to harden but still somewhat soft.
Use a hand mixer to whip for 10 minutes until fluffy.
Return to fridge for 10-15 minutes to set.
Store in a glass jar with a lid and use as you would regular lotion or body butter. If your home stays above 75 degrees, it may soften and need to be kept at the fridge, but it will stay whipped at a temperature lower than that.
