Raw Foods Thursdays: 4/25/13

Strawberry season is upon us! I do believe it’s my favorite eating season of the year. Strawberry tarts, smoothies, shortcakes, pies, salads…I love them all. Last week you shared so many mouthwatering strawberry recipes that I’m even more excited for that first Saturday when our Farmer’s Market features flats of strawberries. It can’t be long now! Until then, I’m saving these StRAWberry Creations. 

Raw Strawberry Tart by Carrie On Vegan
Strawberry Coco-Banana Ice Cream by Katja of The Savory Lotus
Watermelon Strawberry Pops with Fresh Mint by Laureen of Fox in the Kitchen
Strawberry Banana Split Balls by Dana of Celiac Kiddo
Pink Pear Smoothie by Joann of Woman in Real Life
Chocolate Raspberry Fudge Bites by Oatmeal with a Fork (I just couldn’t resist sharing these too!)

This week I just had to share an old raw strawberry pudding. But I’m also sharing my Raw Chocolate Walnut Cookies.

What do you have to share?

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Simply link up a raw foods recipe (see What is Raw Food?), mention Raw Foods Thursdays, and link back to this post so your readers can join in the fun!
  • Please link to the recipe, not to a blog’s home page, so we can all find your raw foods recipe.
  • You may link up a recipe that you’ve made in the past. Just make sure to share something different each time you participate.
  • Be sure to leave a comment letting us know who you are and what you’re sharing.
  • Feel free to use the Raw Foods Thursdays blog badge created by the lovely, talented Heather Peters!

What are Raw Foods Meals?

  • Plant-based meals that are not cooked.  Dehydrators may be used no higher than 118 degrees.  (The raw foods community has differing views on temperature, but the range is between 104 and 118 degrees.)
  • Raw Ingredients: vegetables, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, gluten-free sprouted grains, beans, and oils.

What isn’t raw?

  • Anything cooked above 118.
  • Anything processed.  If it comes from a can or a package that lists more than one ingredient, chances are it’s not raw!

  1. I love that round up of strawberry recipes :) Delicious!

  2. Thanks for featuring my pink pear smoothie! We won’t have strawberry season here for a few more months unfortunately. Everything looks so tasty, I’m yearning for strawberry season. :)

    Hi Heather,
    Thanks for highlighting my Watermelon Strawberry Pops with Fresh Mint. Love all the strawberry features (and the raspberry fudge one too)!
    Have a great week!

  4. Oooh fun recipes – I love strawberries and was so very happy to see them back in season =)
    I’ll be linking up tomorrow with a fun, raw recipe. It’s not with strawberries though… ah well ;p

    Hi Heather,

    I am sharing two recipes this week. But I always get confused about coconut milk. I am pretty sure it’s raw. Feel free to remove the ice cream recipe if it’s not. No worries. :-)

    I am also sharing a VERY simple sugar free strawberry and cantaloupe recipe. It’s toward the bottom of the post. The post is about our trip to an organic strawberry farm last year. So much fun. I was going ka-razy with the strawberries though.

    Have a great rest of your week.


  6. Look at all the pink in that collage! Spring/summer colors and goodness for sure. 😉


  7. Hello :-)

    no smoothie this week, I’m afraid…

    Instead I have posted a step by step photo guide How to Make Kefir.

    Including some information regarding the health benefits and possible side effects of drinking Kefir (especially in relation to Candida).

    Have a great weekend,

    P.S. the strawbs collage looks yummy – pinned!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
