When I was down in Vancouver last week, I went to eat at Gorilla Food (raw food restaurant created by Aaron Ash) and picked up his recipe book.

I looked through it and went out and bought all the ingredients to make wicked raw desserts and smoothies/shakes!

This morning I came up with the recipe for this smoothie on the fly and it turned out awesome! I didn’t get a picture (how could i forget?!) but here it is!


1 large banana
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
2 tbsp raw cashew butter
2 tsp raw maca powder
1 – 2 tsp vanilla powder (you could also use organic vanilla extract, no sugar added)
1-2 cups of water (depending how thin/thick you like it)

Blend everything in blender until smooth!



Only two ingredients, it’s so easy!


1 can coconut milk
1 cup frozen fruit of any kind


Put can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for 20 minutes or so. This will thicken up the coconut milk like cream. In a blender, mix frozen fruit and just the thick coconut milk at the top of the can (about 1/2 – 3/4 cup). Leave the runny stuff on the bottom, and keep for other uses. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately while still cold!

You could also add real organic vanilla extract, cinnamon, cacao powder, or anything you like to make it even more delicious!

I personally enjoyed mango the best, from what I’ve tried!
