I am on a lovely path this week, eating a very ‘simple raw’ diet. This includes lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs and green leafies, with minimal spices, and no seeds or nuts for this week. My system is feeling very satisfied with this, and I started a gentle cleanse by Garden of Life. This morning, I made a beautiful strawberries and cream dish for myself and a friend I’m staying with in LA.
1 container Sliced Organic Strawberries
1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
mint, maybe ten leaves
Cream: 1 young coconut, meat and 1 cup of the water (1 coco will do if the meat is plentiful. If the meat is sparse, use the meat of two cocos and still use only 1 cup of the water. 1/2 tsp. organic vanilla
Place sliced strawberries in a pretty bowl. Blend the cup of coco water with the meat, and add the vanilla. Blend until very smooth and creamy. If it seems to thick, add more coco water. If it seems too thin, add more meat. Pour cream over strawberries. Sprinkle with ginger shavings and mint leaves.
