Mandy Ingber shares a recipe from one of her closest friends who has embraced and truly lives a lifestyle of joy. Laura Harrelson, wife of main yogi Woody Harrelson, is one of my besties, she says. And she feeds her very well. This dessert or breakfast dish will knock your socks off.
Painted Fruit 1 heaping tablespoon raw almond butter
1 heaping tablespoon raw tahini
1 teaspoon agave nectar
1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon hempseed oil
3 tablespoons spirulina powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
½ cup coconut water
In a small bowl, mix almond butter, tahini, agave, lemon juice, cinnamon, and hempseed oil together until creamy. Slowly stir in spirulina powder. If mix starts to get too thick, start stirring in the juice and then add the remaining spirulina. Mix to desired consistency.You may forego the juice, depending on desired thickness.
Pour or spoon the mix over freshly cut fruit (banana, mango, papaya, heaps of berries). Garnish with more cinnamon and dried coconut shavings.The paint doesn’t last very long, so consume immediately, share with friends, or store in the fridge! May be served with chopped almonds for added crunch.
