Watermelon Goji Living Juice from Julie Morris

Believe it or not, basil actually enhances the natural flavor of watermelon.You can choose to either blend the soaked and plumped goji berries into the final drink, or leave them whole as juicy little morsels. Reprinted with permission from Superfood Juices: 100 Delicious, Energizing & Nutrient-Dense Recipes* © 2014 by Julie Morris, Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.

Quinoa, kale, and artichoke salad recipe

Any time you put kale and quinoa together, it’s a winning duo. Not only are they both nutritional powerhouses, they taste and look fantastic together. Cook quinoa ahead of time, and this salad can be made in a snap. For an easy meal, serve with Sweet and Savory Sautéed Tofu, and corn on the cob or baked sweet potatoes. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.

Raw Squash “Noodles” with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Raw zucchini noodles

Making raw spaghetti-like “noodles” with a spiral slicer (I got the one made by World Cuisine* and enjoy it quite a bit) is all the rage among those who have adopted raw food diets. It’s also a boon to those who’ve gone gluten-free, as well as gardeners who have more squash than they know what to do with. For anyone else who just wants to eat lighter and fresher during the summer, it’s just plain fun. more→

Chocolate Cherry Bomb Smoothie

Chocolate cherry bomb smoothie

Healthy? Chocolate? Yes, please! This smoothie uses homemade walnut milk and even adds two cups of frozen broccoli whose flavor or color cannot be detected at all. This is the perfect smoothie for kids (or significant others) whom you might just not want to tell them that it’s healthy. Recipe and photo contributed by Carrie Forrest, from Carrie on Vegan. more→

Luscious Pistachio Smoothie

Pistachio smoothie

This smoothie brings back happy memories of eating gobs of pistachio ice cream with my cousins at Jones Beach. Pistachio was always one of my favorite flavors. The texture is smooth and thick like an old-fashioned milk shake. Pistachios contain large amounts of antioxidants, beta-carotene, vitamin E and lutein compared to other nuts. They are also lower in calories than other nuts and are loaded with flavor and healthy fats. Contributed by Helyn Dunn, from  Helyn’s Healthy Kitchen.

Velvety Chocolate Mousse

velvety chocolate mousse from practically raw desserts by amber shea crawley

For some of you, avocado pudding is probably old news, but for others of you, this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Avocado creates a silken texture that you have to taste to believe (and I promise you won’t notice any avocado flavor). From Practically Raw Desserts * ©2013 by Amber Shea Crawley.
