Holiday VegNog

IMG_5317

Holiday VegNog

OK, I think I have all of my holiday beverages sorted out now. For the past few years I have made different EggNogs but the problem has always been getting the perfect avocado. Considering how far avocados have to travel to get all the way to me, it’s no surprise. If you have a party to host and all the avocados at the store are as hard as rocks then it’s no nog for you. So this year I swapped out the avocado with cashews, blended like crazy, and presto: holiday nog! For better or worse it is very much like the 99 cent cartons of eggnog we used to quaff down when I was a kid (i.e. sweet milk with nutmeg). Works for me.
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup whole, raw cashews soaked in cold water overnight
  • 3 cups plain almond milk, divided
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric (optional)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon – rum to taste
METHOD
  1. Place the soaked cashews and 2 cups of the almond milk in a blender. Blend until very smooth. If you are like me and have a pretty crappy blender, you can pass the mixture through some fine cheesecloth at this point to remove any graininess. Or leave it as is if you don’t mind a little texture.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Chill and reblend right before serving.

Lush Lucuma Smoothie

Lush Lucuma Smoothie

 IMG_5404

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – lucuma is one of my all-time favourite superfoods, second only to cacao. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of its sweet, caramel-esque flavour or the fact that you can make raw fudge with it in minutes. Lucuma –is a Peruvian fruit also known as egg fruit. It’s rich in vitamins (B1, carotene, niacin and B2) iron, fibre and has a really sweet syrup-like taste.

The combination of banana and lucuma is absolutely divine and together they make a perfect smoothie that tastes heavenly and provides the drinker with a burst of nutrients and energy from a natural and wholesome source. Finish it off with your favourite nondairy milk and you’re onto a winner!

Ingredients:

Serves 1 – 2 (makes approximately 500ml)

  • 2 small/medium or 1 large frozen banana(s)
  • 2 tbsp lucuma powder
  • 1 cup non-dair y milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup water (or more milk if you wish)

METHOD

Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend for 20 – 30 seconds, until smooth. If you want the smoothie to be thicker then omit the extra water/milk – if you want a thinner consistency then just add extra liquid.

How to Eat Chayote

How to Eat Chayote

Today Mike Foster is going to show you how to eat chayote—chayote. This is called the vegetable pear. It’s not from the pear family.
It’s really from the gourd family, kind of cucumber-like. He is going to show you how to eat it. You can eat it raw. You can eat it savory. It’s got a little cucumber taste. It doesn’t taste like a pear really.

It’s a little slimier than any of those things he just mentioned.

It was originally from Mexico. It’s grown in warm-weather places like Costa Rica, and in fact, in Australia it’s called choco.

It’s high in fiber, vitamin C—vitamin B. It’s got really good properties that help lower your blood pressure, and they say it works to take care of kidney stones.

You could eat it several ways—raw, savory, and he is going to show you a couple of ways right now in the video.
