Avocado and banana pudding is the best and super healthy raw treat. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, delicious and borrowed from my friend Karinka. All you need is banana, avocado, cacao powder and 15 minutes. Btw, did you know that banana itself is considered a berry? Interesting, isn't it?

2 avocados

2 bananas

1/3 cup cacao powder

Combine avocados, bananas and cacao in blender and blend on high until thoroughly blended and smooth. Feel free to sprinkle it with nuts or garnish with fresh fruit.

BLACK & STRAWBERRY SMOOTHIE

Blackberries are rich in dietary fiber and antioxidants. Blending with handful of strawberries, bananas and honey can be yummy and refreshing post workout snack or meal replacement. I also used plant based protein powder that is gluten, soy and dairy free to suit all dietary needs.

2 bananas

1.5 cups strawberries

1.5 cups blackberries

21 g raw protein powder

honey

4 ice cubes

SPINACH & STRAWBERRY SALAD

Spinach and strawberries are a perfect combination as weather warms, especially if you’ re craving something sweet & savory. You can make satisfying lunch or simple dinner. And if you decide to “go nuts” by adding pecans, they are an excellent source of calcium and other important minerals; you'll surely get a bowl full of vitamins.

serves 3

1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced

5 cups baby spinach leaves

½ cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese

1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or cranberry dressing

½ cup pecans (based on your calorie output, you can reward yourself with candied pecans)

Wash and dry spinach leaves, then place them into a medium-sized bowl. Drizzle a bit of dressing over the leaves. Gently toss spinach leaves with strawberries, gorgonzola cheese and top with pecans. Taste the salad and if needed, drizzle on a little bit more dressing.
