Autumn´s-Soup-Supréme!

(Pictures will come here:)!)

Hearty-Sweet-Potato & Pumpkin Soup;

  • 450 grams of organic Sweet Potato (approx.three regular sized potatoes)
  • 1700 grams of Hokkaido Pumpkin (approx.two large Hokkaidos)
  • 4 cloves of Garlic, skin removed
  • 1 can of organic full-fat Coconut Milk
  • cooking water corresponding to the preferred liquid texture (I like this soup a bit on the thick side, and used approx.2-3 deciliter)
  • 1 T powdered Ginger
  • Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Peel the sweet potatoes and the pumpkins, and remove seeds from pumpkin kernels. Cut both the sweet potatoes and the pumpkins into thumb-sized chunks. Place sweet potatoes, pumpkin and garlic cloves in a casserole, and put to boil until they all turn soft. Divide and strain the cooking water from the vegetables (but make sure to keep some of the water!), and pour all ingredients over in a blender. Add the coconut milk, and amount of cooking water of your preference, and blend until smooth. Toss in the powdered ginger. Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Enjoy:)

Raw Licorice Caramel Latte

April 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

So, it`s day 8 of Cleanse America here in Denmark, and although my spirit is strong as ever after 8 days of cleansing, I´ve seriously been in need of something sweet today:) This “Latte” completely cures my sweet-cravings, so if you´re in for something sweet for that sweet tooth of yours today, maybe this´ll do the trick?;)

The recipe yields one large portion, although I think some of you might find the sweetness and fullness of it generous enough for two:) My sweet tooth is at least sufficiently satisfied after about 1/3-1/2 cup!

The recipe is adapted from the Christmas Recipe E-book of raw food chef and naturopath Ida Kirk Foged of http://www.rawfood-livsstil.dk/, but reworked with Raw Licorice, Cinnamon and Ginger; three spices very dear to my heart:)

As for the recipe:

  • 3.5 dl Almond Milk
  • 2.5 T Lucuma Powder
  • 1 T Raw Mulberries
  • 2 small dates or 1 Medjool
  • 1 T Chia Seeds
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Raw Licorice Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 pinch Vanilla Powder
  • 1 pinch Himalayan Salt

Blend all ingredients in a blender, pour into a glass, and let it rest for 10-15 min, allowing the Chia Seeds to soak and the latte to thicken. Enjoy!
