Greens & Fruit Soup

Greens and Fruit Soup
A lovely, thick soup this makes. So refreshing it is to eat this here in Bahia, Brazil.
If you want it to be a smoothie, just add more liquid.

for two servings:
1/2 medium papaya
1 medium mango
6 strawberries

greens of any kind

I used 2 leaves of lettuce, some arugula, 1 leaf of kale, small amount of cilantro

2-3 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
1 tablespoon of coconut butter/oil

pinch of sea salt
coconut water

blend, serve in bowls and decorate with cut up fruit

Oatmeal Cookie Biscotti at Raw Test Kitchen

I made this Oatmeal Cookie Biscotti using Raw Test Kitchen recipe.
Definitely soooo yummy.

2 c almonds
1 c oat groats, soaked, divided
1/2 c dried cranberries, soaked
1/4 c agave nectar
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t sea salt

In food processor, pulse almonds into a flour. Remove from processor. Add half of oat groats to food processor and process until smooth. Place mixture in a bowl. Combine oat groat mixture with almond flour, seasoning, agave nectar and cranberries. Spread mixture on Teflex sheet. Dehydrate at 110 degrees overnight or 6-8 hours. Flip over and score into bars about 4 hours into the dehydrating time.
