Raw foods have been the only thing I’ve eaten for a few days, and I must say I’m enjoying the break from cooked foods.

The raw food recipe I’ve listed below, is one of my daughter’s favorite raw fruit puddings. She’s been asking me to share this simple raw food dish on Celebrate Life, enjoy!

Raw foods: Mango, strawberry, and banana pudding

  • 1 medium sized mango – cubed
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 2 overly ripe bananas

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Enjoy

Raw foods: Keeping it simple

I’m a big fan of simplicity; you don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this raw food meal taste great. It’s incredibly simple to make; but it’s delicious and healthy.

The great thing about this, and many dishes I prepare. You can swap the ingredients. Don’t have mango, add an apple, or some other fruit you like. Choose what you like. To add additional nutrients, you could add a one leaf of a dark leafy green (kale or collards). I’ve also added carrots, and other vegetables to my raw fruit puddings.

As an infant, my daughter’s first foods were pureed in my Kitchen Aid food processor. She loved pureed vegetables and fruit. For those who’re not fond of vegetables, adding them to your raw fruit puddings, raw smoothies, or raw juices, is a great way to sneak in the numerous benefits of vegetables, without the taste that some might not like. Because of the sweetness of the fruit, it masks the taste of the vegetables.

The fruit in the raw fruit puddings, masks the taste of vegetables, which is perfect for those who might not like the taste of vegetables.  Vegetables aren’t an issue for my daughter and me since we love numerous varieties; raw and cooked. We also love our raw fruit puddings.
