Vegan Avocado Truffles

Standard

So simple, yet so satisfying

Truffles or sushi? I cannot decide. Whatever you choose to call them, they are simply amazing!

Cut an organic avocado in half, remove the stone, and scoop out some of the avocado into a bowl. Mash and then toss in small pieces of fresh mango, coriander, black sesame seeds, and fresh squeezed lime.

After scooping this amazing mixture back into the avocado, put the two halves back together, and peel off the skin.

We then chose to cover our avocado with small pistachio pieces and black sesame seeds.

Then, I sliced the avocado into pieces and added extra pistachios and filling on the side.

Enjoy!

These were so delicious! The little vegans helped quickly devour these. I knew I should have made more! This was the perfect mix for us, but feel free to use any ingredients you have or what sounds best to you. I have had this idea saved to Pinterest and on the top of my “to make list” for a very long time. I cannot believe that we have finally made them, and I can guarantee it will not be the last. So many more organic raw vegan avocado truffles to come!

Circle of Moms Top 25 Vegan & Vegetarian Moms - 2013 - Vote for me! Thank you to everyone who has been voting for us. Definitely harder coming in late and trying to catch up, but I really appreciate all of you voting for us. Great to see that we are sitting at #6 with 61 votes now. Don’t forget that you can continue to vote every 24 hours since your last vote until February 7th 🙂 By making the Top 25, we will be a part of this resource for other Vegan & Vegetarian Mums, or those who are curious. As you can tell, I would love to be a part of this.

Also, I am looking at putting together a link on my site with a favourite post from your blog if anyone is interested. Through this Top 25, I have found so many other blogs that I like, but even keeping up with all the awesome posts from all of our readers seems to be quite difficult. It always amazes me how many awesome and inspiring articles and information is out there, but even some of the best cannot always be quickly found on a Google Search.

Smoothie a Day #20 Mango

Standard

This smoothie was way too yummy! Zaedyn was not that interested in sharing with me so I had to find my own straw, but then he decided that he could drink from two. Cheeky!

We have not had mango for awhile and wanted to make sure that we could taste it. This was a very simple smoothie, but you could easily add greens or a few more ingredients.

Tomorrow’s smoothie a day is nut butter in case you want to join in or see what we decide to make. If you haven’t noticed already, check out the Smoothie a Day quick link page at the top that I added. Oh, and something else really exciting. We received some fluffy mail from the Nappy Lady today! If you want to find out what nappy we have added to Zaedyn’s nappy stash, I will be posting a photo later. I love the print!

Smoothie a Day ~ November

Standard

November

Smoothies are full of goodness! They are packed with lots of nutrients. Fruit, Veggies, and superfoods: there are endless ways to make a different smoothie every day. This actually made it extremely hard in choosing only 30 ideas, but I tried to choose a variety as well as a few that I know will be a bit more challenging. I also tried not to use too many ingredients that not everyone stocks in their pantry, but with only one ingredient listed you can feel free to get creative. I am going to be creating smoothies that I have never made before, and I look forward to seeing everyone else’s creativity.

If you are following us on Pinterest, there is a new Smoothies board which I will be adding lots of pins to as I come across them. I will post this photo so that you can re-pin. Please like and share this photo on Facebook as well so that as many people as possible can be involved in creating and drinking smoothies this month. Each day we welcome any way you wish to contribute whether it is a photo, recipe, or your thoughts. If you post a photo on our wall, you can re-share on your own. Thanks for all of your support, and I look forward to all of the smoothie bliss in November.
