Do you juice? Or Blend? Or both? For now, we blend. Getting an extra-large dose of fruit and vegetables in your day gives you a natural source of vitamins and minerals and juicing or blending is a great way to do this!
Enjoy a sacred smoothie bowl with wholesome ingredients to start your day off in an enjoyable way.
With the new year, I find myself naturally leaning towards bright vibrant fruits and vegetables. I recently bought a pound of kale, tons of herbs, fresh fruit and veggies. My husband and I have been naturally eating a bit lighter and moving more. Have you found yourself drawn to fresh foods and more movement?
Oranges, strawberries, a few raspberries and some bonus super-foods create an unforgettable smoothie that may become your new favorite!
A chocolate crust supports a rich and creamy white chocolate cashew cream with swirls of peanut butter, and fresh chocolate sauce. This gourmet dessert is easy to make, yet you would never know it if you looked at it. Made in a food processor, blender and frozen, it makes the perfect treat to "wow" others with little effort. I think this would be a superb dessert to make for Father's Day coming up!

A creamy cheesecake with a hint of lemon and sweet agave has hidden blueberry gems inside to greet you as you bite in. The cheesecake is adorned with a healthy blueberry sauce and fresh blueberries. It rests on a bed that is sweet yet salty. As you bite in you taste a fusion of flavors and a hint of vanilla.
I made this beautiful cheesecake for my recently celebrated 30th birthday. Ever since I was a little girl I desired cheesecake for any celebratory occasion. I dreamed of what I'd make for my special day and thought of cakes and cupcakes but knew I truly wanted a really delicious piece of cheesecake with sauce and berries, my favorite.
Growing up cherry cheesecake was my absolute favorite but since I had a generous helping of blueberries I thought I'd try something different. The results? Heavenly. Plus - it is vegan, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free and raw. Hooray!
If vegan cheesecake weren't good enough I also have some exciting news for the Artistic Vegan Community! My husband's book "The Anunnaki of Nibiru" was recently picked up by Editions Oeil Critik - http://oeilcritik.com/. When he was working with them, my recent book came up. It was decided that the "The Artistic Vegan Cookbook: An Alchemical Transformation" is going to be published in French! I am so excited and had to share! It is with special thanks and warm love to my sweet husband Gerald Clark who speaks highly of me. If it weren't for him I wouldn't have this opportunity! Please check out the new French section of my blog: http://www.artisticvegan.com/en-franccedilais. Thank you all for your continued love and support, I wouldn't be here without you! With love, Christa
Coconut, peanut butter and banana create a creamy almost fudge like treat resting on a bed of berries, topped with shredded coconut. I served ours with a flower made of coconut flakes and blueberries to celebrate the sunshine and spring ahead. With minimal effort these treats can be yours! Plus it is only an added bonus that they are raw, vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free and oil-free! They are "excellent" says my sweet husband and would be unbelievable with a little coconut whipped frosting for a raw cupcake or chocolate...both? ;) Enjoy - Love, Christa
