Okay, I have to say, I am impressed that I created a dessert that I can have while I am on my cleanse. It's pretty darn good and great for diabetics.
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup shredded coconut
1 tbsp xylitol
Process the macadamia nuts, shredded coconut and xylitol in a food processor
Press in a pie plate or a spring form pan. Place in the freezer while you make
the filling so the crust will firm up.
1 cup young coconut meat
1/4 cup lemon juice
2-3 tbsp xylitol (you can add a little more if you want it sweeter)
1 tbsp lemon zest
1/2 t. turmeric- optional (for that lemony yellow color only)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2-3 tbsp coconut concentrate
2-3 tbsp Irish moss, soaked (optional)
In a Vita Mix or high speed blender, blend all of the filling ingredients until
smooth. Pour the filling into the tart or pie pan. Chill in the fridge until
set, 3-6 hours.
1 young coconut meat, thick
2 tbsp lemon juice
1-2 drops lemon essential oil
1-2 tbsp xylitol
Blend in a high power blender until creamy. Spread on top of the lemon pie.

If you love coffee but not the addictive side effects then you will love this new product we just got in. If you are looking for a real energy boost and the yummy flavor of coffee you have met your match. I made the most amazing lattes the other night for my sugar cleansers and we all loved it! Here is the recipe:
Brew in a regular coffee pot:
I use 1/2 maca, 1/2 teccino. I like the Cafe or Java flavor. I usually brew 6 cups and use 2 tbsp each.
For the milk:
1 cup cashews
2 cups water
1-2 tbsp xylitol
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt
Blend well in a high speed blender. Mix a little cashew milk with the Maca coffee in a coffee mug and sprinkle with cinnamon. It is delicious!!

Scientists have studied
sprouts for centuries to better understand their high levels of
disease-preventing phytochemicals, and how they contribute to better
health, from prevention to treatment of life-threatening diseases.
Major organizations including the National Institutes of Health,
American Cancer Society and Johns Hopkins University have reinforced
the benefits of sprouts with ongoing studies that explore various
sprout varieties for their nutritional properties and to validate
According to Paul Talalay,
MD, in the American Cancer Society NEWS, "broccoli sprouts
are better for you than full-grown broccoli, and contain more
of the enzyme sulforaphane which helps protect cells and prevents
their genes from turning into cancer." His findings are
consistent with several epidemiologic studies that have shown
that sprouts contain significant amounts of vitamins A, C and
D. Sprouts are widely recognized by nutrition conscious consumers
and health care professionals as a "wonder food."
