Raw Vegan Corn Chowder

This raw corn chowder is simple, fresh, delicious, and takes less than 10 minutes to throw together. This little soup is a lifesaver when you come home and need a quick healthy meal without a lot of fuss. Best of all, it is extremely versatile. It can be served hot or cold in summer or winter, and can be dressed up with all kinds of fresh veggies. I like to serve this soup as a small starter in the summer topped with fresh corn and cilantro. For the best flavor, chill the soup in the…

Raw Chocolate Orange Torte from The Blender Girl cookbook

This raw cake is as easy as blend, freeze, and devour. Chocolate and orange is a classic combo, and this cake is perfectly balanced - it's rich and chocolately with just the right amount of orange. The creamy texture melts in your mouth and the crust is rich and chewy. I've been making this cake for years, and it never gets old. It receives raves at every party I serve it at. When I was allowed to include 10 recipes from the site in my first book, The Blender Girl, this cake was at…

Raw Red Bean-Free Hummus from The Perfect Blend cookbook

This raw no-bean paleo-friendly hummus is full of flavor, loaded with nutrients, is better for digestion, and is alkaline. You will need a high-speed blender in order to get a really smooth creamy consistency. However, if you don't have one, throw this in a food processor and process until as smooth as possible. You'll get a more rustic consistency, but the flavor will be fabulous. I love sun-dried tomatoes and red bell peppers, and they add a slight sweetness and tanginess that…

Vegan Lentil Vegetable Pasta

I thought I would post one of my all-time favorite pasta recipes. I have not made the entire recipe in a blender. I just blended part of the pasta sauce. However, this is a fantastic example of how your blender can help you with all kinds of healthy recipes, whether they are fully blended or not. This recipe utilizes a homemade tomato puree that you can whip up in a few pulses by placing the tomatoes in your blender. If you don't have fresh tomatoes you can use a small tin of crushed…

Vegan Carrot Cake Pudding

This carrot cake pudding is quick, easy, and delicious. I don't want to mislead you and pretend this can replace a delectable piece of gluten free vegan carrot cake. Sadly, it cannot. However, if you are not inclined to bake and want a little taste of some of the notes of a carrot cake, this pudding hits the spot. I decided to try a variation-on-a-theme after the popularity of the orange cranberry pudding and sweet potato pudding. Give these blender desserts a go. They are super quick…

Pineapple Ginger-Aid Green Smoothie

This is a very short post today, as this is my last day with my parents before they fly back to Australia. Boo! But, the good news is that they will be back in 7 weeks. Yipppeeee! So, I will refrain from blubbering all the way home from the airport on the 405 listening to love songs on the coast. I promised to post my mum's favorite green smoothie before she left, so here it is. She loves this pineapple ginger-ade green smoothie. This blend is a delightful sweet and mild introduction…

Vegan Creamy Green Soup

This is a short post today as I just picked up dear friend Kat from the airport. We went to high school together in Singapore, and when her parents moved to Indonesia she remained as a boarding student and my parents were her guardians. She became part of our family, and I think of her as my second sister. She's a Qantas flight attendant and manages to snag the odd trip to L.A. So time is of the essence and I want to soak up every single second with her. This is also my last weekend…

Avocado Face Mask

Your blender is not just for food! You can make amazing natural skincare. I am incredibly particular about what I put on my skin. If I can't put it in my mouth, I don't put it on my skin! I do use some commercially produced organic products for convenience. But I very often make my own homemade scrubs, masks and creams at home using my blender. Check out the amazing almond scrub I make using the leftover almond pulp from making almond milk! Also, don't miss my all-time favorite organic…

Vegan Cherry Pie Smoothie

I'm posting this vegan cherry pie smoothie in honor of my dad, who's been visiting from Australia for a month. Dad absolutely loves cherries, and this is his favorite smoothie. For those of you in Australia, fresh cherries are in season! Dad and I have been known at Christmas to devour bowls of cherries in one sitting and not come up for air. For those of you in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, or other places where frozen cherries are not widely available at the grocery store, you can…

Raw Paleo Pasta Alfredo

This healthy raw vegan alfredo pasta is quick, easy, and absolutely delicious. Just throw all of the ingredients in your high-speed blender and devour. To get the smoothest consistency with a conventional blender soak your nuts and seeds. This alfredo sauce has a lovely flavor that complements the raw zucchini noodles. To make zoodles, use a vegetable spiralizer (which is what I did) to make quick easy spaghetti-style noodles, or just use a vegetable peeler to shave off thick…

Epic Edamame Dip from The Blender Girl cookbook

This recipe is addictive. Not only because it tastes so darn good, but because it only takes minutes to blend and devour. You will need a high-speed blender or food processor. A blender will give you a super smooth creamy dip. A food processor yields a more rustic consistency. Either way, tweak the lemon juice, cumin, red pepper flakes, and salt to get it just right. If you're serving this to children, omit the red pepper flakes. Serve this dip with raw vegetables and crackers, or…

Spicy Wake Up Green Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

In honor of the new year, I'm posting this alkaline spicy wake up green smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app and book. This tasty gazpacho-style blend serves up your daily quota of veggies. I drink this healthy veggie-packed blend almost every week. It's a fantastic meal replacement for energy, detox, and inflammation, and hangovers. Yep, that cayenne will wake you up and get you going! I like this blend a bit more salty than I've specified. But the quantities I've specified…
