What do you bring to a pot luck???

You can make a BEAUTIFUL salad... (Easy - just put your lettuce in and layer the crudities in triangles that meet in the middle.  You can use anything you like.  In this case I used chopped celery, strawberries, onions, yellow and green peppers, pecans, apples, carrots, raisins, blueberries and mushrooms.  Frame with sliced tomatoes.

Sweet potato salad

Shred sweet potatoes, pour on the juice of 1 lime, add pecans, raisins and cut pineapple. Sweeten with agave.  Frame with pineapple circles.

Mango Coconut Banana Smoothie

Put 1 mango, 1 banana, 3/4 cup cashew milk, 3/4 cup coconut water, 3 medjool dates, and 1 cup of ice in blender.  Blend until smooth.

Salad topped with carrots, raisins, sliced onions, apples, and avocado.

Raw Vegan Coffee Ice Cream

In blender put: 1 cup of cashews, 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/2 tablespoon vanilla, 1
1 tablespoon instant coffee.  Blend until creamy and smooth.

Put mixture in the freezer for 1 hour or in the refrigerator overnight, until well chilled.

Pour the mixture in an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately or transfer to airtight containers and store in the freezer until ready to serve.

Top with pecans and fresh fruit of your choice.
