Oh my sweet tooth, my sweet tooth! I have deprived it too long! We have been following Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live program for almost 7 weeks now, and we (my husband and I) FEEL TERRIFIC!! I ran across this “recipe” on my facebook feed and thought I would modify it a bit. Here is my modified recipe:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 Tlbs unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla
16 ice cubes
2 Tlbs. agave syrup
Put this in the blender (we use our Blendtec) and mix as if it were a smoothie. I originally began eating this as a “milkshake” but became too much for me. So, I pulled down my Popsicle molds, washed them out, and voila! YUMMY!!!
1 jalapeno pepper
2 cloves garlic, roasted
1 bunch of cilantro (washed and dried)
I place these ingredients into a food processor before adding the rest.
1 quart tomatoes (these were from my garden last summer)
1 16 oz can tomato sauce
juice from 1 lemon
salt to taste
I put the rest of the ingredients into the food processor and viola! Perfect!
Next, I made some homemade guacamole. It’s really quite simple and so delicious!
1 sliver of onion, finely minced
1/4 jalapeno, finely minced
1 small handful of cilatro leaves (I remove the stems for the guac), finely chopped
juice from 1 lemon
It’s easy from here! First you smash the avocado meat with a fork, then add the rest of the ingredients. Be sure to stir it well to mix in the flavors together. I add a little salt for taste as well. My daughter Amber tells me that if you store the excess guacamole with the seed from the avocado, then it lasts a little longer.
Now for the taco salad. I put about 1/2 cup brown rice on the bottom, then place about 3/4 cup black bean on top of that. Next, romaine lettuce that has been cleaned and torn. I like to add chopped green onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes. Finally, I top this with a generous portion of homemade salsa, and a big spoonful of guacamole. For garnish, I put the chopped cilantro leaves on top.
Oh my my my! I thought I had died and gone to heaven! This was DELICIOUS!!!
