The ingredients! Spinach, Jicama, Sweet Onion, Cucumber, FENNEL, an Orange + the dressing ingredients, lemon juice, EVOO & Mrs. Dash!
I was surprised by the taste of the fennel. I had no idea what it would taste like, but it has almost a minty-sweet taste to it. Pretty good.
This one was made with Spinach, Jicama, Apples, Cranberries and chopped Almonds. The dressing was made with a bit of Orange Juice, salt & pepper, and EVOO.
Not sure which one I liked best, they were both pretty darn good though. :)
I have enough fennel for tomorrow. I'm going to marinate it. Curious if it will make it softer. I will let you know!!
Strawberry Pudding with "make it yourself" Almond Milk
4-5 raw almonds
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
4-5 medium organic strawberries
1 pitted date
2 Tbsp chia seeds
about 1/4 cup filtered water
Combine your water, raw almonds & vanilla extract. Blend! For about 5 minutes. I used one of these mini blenders.
Voila, raw almond milk ;)
I finally found some organic strawberries. I've been looking for them for weeks... I have absolutely no clue why it's so difficult to find them here.
Yum. That guy to the right is my date! :)
Combine the rest of your ingredients and blend.
Would you like a bite??
