Purple Yam Chia Pudding

I have always found purple yams interesting. You know the yams that actually have purple flesh. They are a bit sweeter and are great as a dessert. The picture of this pudding isn’t the best. This is another recipe that I made a few months ago, but never bothered to photo or post. So here it is now. I think you will really enjoy it.  Let me know what you think?

Purple Yam Chia Pudding

2 Tb chia seeds (soak in 1/4 cup + 2 Tb water until gelled)
4 pitted Medjool dates (soak in 1/4 cup water, more or less to cover)
2 cups shredded purple yam
1 cup coconut milk (raw)
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tb Lucuma powder
Cinnamon to taste
pinch Pink Himalayan salt

Place all ingredients including chia and date water into a food processor or high speed blender. Mix on high until super smooth and thick like pudding. This makes enough to fill a standard size jar, and will keep in the fridge for about 3 to 4 days. Enjoy!

My "thankful" Thanksgiving day!

This year my Thanksgiving Day had to be one of the best Thanksgiving Day’s I have had in a very long time. It was a super nice day, spent with family and friends. Although the traditional roasted turkey, bread stuffing, and mashed potatoes, with “processed” pies were served, I took the time to make several raw food dishes to bring and share.

I prepared the following dishes, which were all a great hit! In fact, most of the dinner guests did not even realize they were eating “raw food” until after they were half way done and asked. There were no leftovers – unbelievable! It was super exciting. Although I took pictures, they didn’t come out that great. I’m in dire need of a new camera, amongst other things…who knows, maybe Santa will surprise me this year with some new goodies!

Anyway, this is what I served:

  • Corn, Heirloom Tomatoes, and Basil Salad
  • Arugula, Crimini Mushrooms, Pine Nuts, and Cranberries Salad
  • Pecan and Cranberry “Raw” Stuffing
  • Mock Turkey (Nut Pate)
  • Raw Cranberry relish with Orange Juice
  • Green Bean Casserole – all raw (raw cream of mushroom soup, raw onion rings, raw beans with raw shitake mushrooms, grated pine nuts)
  • Raw Sweet Potatoes with Agave, Vanilla, and Pecans
  • Raw Pumpking Chocolate Swirl Pie
  • Raw Chocolate-Vanilla Swirl Ice Cream, with Raw Cacao Sauce
  • Cashew Cream Topping
  • Raw Eggnog

Yes, I made all this stuff for the dinner. I was up till 3am in the morning the night before getting things ready, and then finishing up on Thanksgiving day before we went over to my mother-in-laws to celebrate. It was a lot of work for one person (me), but well worth it! Everyone enjoyed it, including me!!! =)

A few days before I made raw sweet rolls with cinnamon date pudding, and my own version of manna bread – nanamana bread. I also made some delicious and simple banana pancakes with cinnamon and blueberries, and a drizzle of organic maple syrup Grade B on top. Yummo!

I feel like I’ve pack on the pounds in just a few days from eating all this glorious raw food! Lol! =)

You can get some of the recipes from my holiday cooking at my raw food recipe blog, www.RawRifficFood.WordPress.com.

Well, thank you for letting me share my fun and raw food with you. Till next time, I bid you peace and happiness, and good health! =)

Here are a few “yukky” pics from this past holiday season. Again, sorry for the poor quality. It will have to do for now!

Check out my recipe blog!

I decided that although I like posting my raw recipes on My Raw Life blog, I feel like they get lost when I start posting other blogs unrelated to raw food preparing. So, I decided to create a blog specifically for my raw food recipes. It’s called, Raw-Riffic Food Recipe Blog (https://rawrifficfood.wordpress.com/).

I have done my best to post (or will be posting) all the raw recipes I have shared so far, and of course new ones too. The blog is actually a part of my raw food website, Raw-Riffic Food (http//www.rawrifficfood.com/) so that visitors can link to it from my site as well.

Eventually I plan to add additional topics to the raw food recipe blog, such as posts related to raw food products, raw food recipe books, and raw food chefs. They will all be organized in an easy-to-follow way so that the recipes don’t get lost. So I hope you take time to check it out, and maybe even sign-up to get updates. Also, your comments are always welcome!

For now, that’s it. Hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend! I’m so happy I don’t have to work tomorrow! It will be a very nice “at home” Memorial day for me! Until next time!


Debbie 🙂
