Super Living Magazine: Allergy Free Christmas Menu

I was thrilled when I was approached by SuperLiving (an online magazine in Australia where I contribute a weekly recipe) to create a gluten free Christmas menu modifying traditional Aussie Christmas favourites in order to make them more forgiving for those of us living with a gluten intolerance. I decided to take the challenge one step further, and created some allergy free recipes that are gluten free, dairy free, egg free and peanut free; so that my gorgeous little niece, Alexandra…

Crazy-Amazing Cranberry Sauce

Well, the countdown to Christmas has well and truly begun. I am soaking up every single minute of it; and literally counting the hours until I am reunited with my wonderful family in Australia. I was approached by Super Living Magazine (who feature my recipes every week) to create a "Gluten Free Christmas Menu" modifying traditional Aussie Christmas favorites. I, of course, decided to take the challenge one-step further, making the Christmas menu completely allergy free: gluten free,…

Vegan Lemon Cashew Cream

I am posting this delectable raw vegan lemon cream as a simple adaptation of the raw vanilla cashew cream and honey cream that I posted some time ago. It is so delicious; and is an incredible accompaniment to the "rock-your-world" damp lemon and almond cake I am posting at the end of the week. My mum asked me (with excited anticipation) the other day as she was "uncooking" for a Spring event, "where is that raw vegan lemon cream recipe?" I had an immediate flash-back to her infamous

Raw Chocolate Cinnamon Pudding

Hello, I am The Blender Girl, and I continue my shameless bribes with chocolate. I am a proud raw chocoholic. Or more specifically, a raw chocolate moussaholic. Today, I thought it was time I posted my favorite raw chocolate pudding recipe that can be made in less than five minutes in your blender and is absolutely divine. If the allergy free gluten free brownies didn't do the trick, I feel quite certain that this will. Those of you who joined my chocoholics program with the tofu…

Allergy-Free Vegan Double Chocolate Brownies

I'm posting this allergy-free double chocolate brownie in honor of Ashley from Springfield, MO. We connected online when I wasl living there, but alas, we never met. We were both patients of Dr Elaine Carter, and we boned over our love of whole foods. Ashley sent me a pumpkin chocolate brownie recipe last week and asked if I could modify it to make it gluten-free. The original recipe contained mashed pumpkin and honey. I wasn't really a fan of this combination after my first-round…

Righteous Roasted Beet Dip from The Perfect Blend cookbook

This roasted beet dip is one of the most incredible dips I've ever tasted, and is loaded with cleansing nutrients. I first made a version of this recipe when I was volunteering in my mum's school kitchen. My friend Judy had her eight-year-old students hopping into this like it was hamburgers! Suffice it to say, this dip gets raves from beet skeptics. I've spiced the original recipe up with more garlic, chile, and salt, and added some lemon juice to brighten the flavors. You will need…

Zesty Lime Corn Salad

At the risk of sounding corny – “there is no place like home!” Paul Young says “wherever I lay my hat that’s my home.” But as much as I love that song, I cannot agree. For me “home is where the heart is," and my heart will always be with my family. I almost found myself on a plane back to Australia at the beginning of the week. I woke from a nightmare in a cold sweat, and in a moment of panicked home-sick nostalgia, AKA “I miss my mummy and daddy," my fingers found themselves furiously…

Mango Coconut Cardamom Green Smoothie

Having just moved back to L.A, I'm basking in the extraordinary variety of fresh local produce on offer at the various farmer’s markets in town. I'd forgotten how exquisite the fruits and vegetables are here. And, it is so lovely to be back in the loving embrace of my sacred circle of friends out here. When I lived in L.A while I was a college student at UCLA I scoffed more than my fair share of fresh fruit as I was touring the various markets. I am determined to deliver an encore…

Vegan Maple Pecan Pie Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

Rob and I were in Ojai, California this week and we were baking! Unfortunately not the put-a-pie-in-the-oven kind of baking, rather the it’s-too-hot-for-humans kind where you're sweating in embarrassing places you didn’t know could weep for themselves. OK, so perhaps I'm overstating the heat just a tad, and I shouldn’t be complaining after escaping the slap-you-in-the-face oppressive heat of Arizona. But when you've been standing under the hot sun in a field knee-deep in bushes for two…

Raw Garlic Kale Chips

My litmus test for any of my raw recipes is to feed them to my friend Joann, who proudly professes “I don’t eat healthy!” If she sticks her fork in my recipes without any complaining, and returns for more, I know I have a winner. I am staying with her in Arizona this week, and brought some of my kale chips as a snack. When I woke up the first morning to find half the bag empty, and a note that read “I need this recipe!!!!!” I thought it was worthy of a post! She did insist I attach a…

Vegan Cashew Cream Cheeze

My dad always tells me that happiness is tied up in expectations. If you keep your expectations in a realistic place, you're less likely to be disappointed. I've found this advice to be true in all aspects of life; and I offer it up today when making this cashew cheese. Don’t get me wrong, this spread is absolutely scrumptious. But if you turn on your food processor expecting this to taste exactly like cheese made from cow’s milk, you may be a little disappointed. Conversely, if you…

Avocado Gazpacho

This easy raw gazpacho is like liquid guacamole. This blend kicked me into a pleasure-induced coma and had me ready to coat-check my teeth. I'm now dreaming up a recipe for a taco in a glass. Hmmm... Tweak the onion, lime juice, chile, and salt to taste. I serve this soup as a main meal with lots of veggie toppings. This way, it serves about 4 people. But, this blend is also sensational served in shot glasses for parties. A splash of tabasco is magic, too. Just use avocados that are…
