Having a Moscow Mule says ‘summertime’ to me. This particular drink was popular during the 1950s and has experienced a resurgence in recent years. Like many others, I love the refreshing combination of ginger beer and lime juice. If you want to experiment with our Ginger Beer recipe (pg 288 in our new book, Make It Paleo 2 - available for preorder now on Amazon), this is a great way to fully test it out when the book arrives. My favorite vodka brand to use is Three Hunters Vodka, a Paleo-friendly version of the spirit distilled from grapes and blueberries.
This beloved holiday recipe is a Staley family tradition, passed down from my grandmother to my father, and now we make a grain-free version! Our original version of this recipe dates back to 2010 on our blog, and also was included in our first cookbook, Make it Paleo. Enjoy this updated version at your next gathering!
These Goji Berry and Hazelnut Cacao Truffles are a spin off of the Cacao and Walnut Holiday Truffle recipe I shared a couple of months ago.
That recipe was originally inspired by the "Raw Chocolate Tart" recipe from the lovely Tabatha at Kitchen To Nirvana.
While the holiday truffle recipe was rolled in crushed goji berries, raw cane sugar and crushed pistachios for the colors of the season, these are just rolled in crushed goji berries which makes them perfect for a St. Valentine’s Day treat.
And since I had some crushed hazelnuts left over from my Hazelnut Caramel Clusters recipe, I used them instead of walnuts and added a few other changes like goji berries, maca powder and a little bit of coconut oil.
So here you have a quick and easy, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly, no bake and no refined sugar treat to enjoy!
Our recipe for lasagne avoids conventional wheat-based noodles, using instead some thinly sliced zucchini. This simple substitution makes all the difference in this dish, contributing even more flavor to a favorite of many. For a primal twist, you could even add a little cheese!
Today's recipe, Raw Caramel Macadamia Bliss Balls, is an adaption of my popular Raw Caramel Slice recipe – one of the first recipes I shared on Becomingness, nearly 12 months ago. It is still my favourite dessert recipe and I wondered if it work as a bliss ball. I was really happy with the results – I may even prefer it to the original, as you still get the amazing caramel flavour, but in a easier to make recipe. You can't go wrong with that!
I posted this recipe on my blog a few weeks before Thanksgiving last year, and it has far and away been the most accessed recipe on my site every day since. It's based on the Sunshine Broccoli Salad we used to get from the grocery store deli in a small Iowa town we lived in, though I imagine many delis have their own versions. I prefer my broccoli nice and crisp, but if you don't, you can blanch the broccoli in boiling water for a couple of minutes to soften it first. We prefer it with bacon (of course!), but if you are looking for a completely no-cook side dish, it's great with ham as well.
