Intro: Raw Cranberry, Banana, Apricot, Spread
In the middle 80's my family and I became vegetarians. I am not a vegetarian now but I am thinking about trying to do it again. I need to do a little more research because one must consider the needs of the family. It is important to have a well rounded diet. I have been studying the raw diet. I had to chuckle because I came across a website that mentioned the 555 plan. The man mentioned if it included more than 5 ingredients and took more than 5 minutes to make it was not a true raw food diet. I must say all of my recipes took longer than 5 minutes. I suppose it was because I am still learning. Anyway this is what I came up with for a spread. We really liked it. This is what I made from the pecan pulp from the pecan milk. You use this spread in the place of butter or cheese. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Raw-Pecan-Milk/ . The wonderful thing about the base is you can make just about any flavor you want just by adding different spices.
Here is the original recipe :
1 C Base
1 T Agave
1/2 C Dried Cranberries
1/2 C Chopped Walnuts I used pecans because I did not have raw walnuts.
I added a carrot, pecan, parsley, and cranberry garnish.
For the cranberry spread I made it as listed except I used pecans.
For the apricot I used the base, apricots, and added bananas.
Here is the site where I found it: http://www.squidoo.com/pecanmilk .
