In 2012 I founded the Bay Area Spring Water, Wild Food and Vitality Meetup Group. If you’re in Northern California, join us! If elsewhere, start your own spring water/high vibe meetup group! Please SHARE the video below to help your friends up-level their lives with deeply healthful experiences and a supportive nonjudgmental health community!
The greater San Francisco Bay Area has many drinking springs: some flowing and accessible, many hidden and abandoned. Our community seeks to hydrate with these wild healing waters, learn about foraging wild edibles, and motivate each other to live lives rich in passion and vitality.
Join us so that you can enjoy: amazing wilderness adventure, spring water hikes, wild food walks, vitality food demos, cold spring restorations, hot spring pilgrimages, superfood party celebrations, organic potlucks, sustainable farm tours, and expert workshops! All welcome!
The San Francisco Bay Area needs more accessible drinking springs for the purpose of supreme hydration, vitality, ecology and reconnecting wild soul:
Out of the several neglected roadside springs, the Lagunitas spring seems to be the perfect fit for the first spring we restore. It will become the best and closest drinking spring for the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lat: 38° 0’44.81″N
The spring is located on the west side (uphill side) of Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Samuel P. Taylor State Park, 6 miles west of the Fairfax Community Church (Fairfax, CA).
Here’s a video I did in Janurary 2011 about other neglected springs in the Bay Area:
We can do it!

Presenting: My UnCoffee Ice Creme Sundae…drizzled in raw chocolate sauce! This outrageous dessert will nourish your soul’s desire for both nutty coffee-like richness and herbal medicine. Here at ChristianBates.com I combine the satisfying world of gourmet delicacy with the healing world of tonic herbs, superfoods, and wild foods.
1 cup tonic herb tea
1 cup organic pecans, soaked
1/2 cup soaked and spouted black wild rice (soak in spring water for a day, rinsing a couple times)
2 large eggs, de-shelled (Vegans: Use a few dashes of non-GMO soy lecithin and a dash of olive oil instead)
4 Brazil nuts, soaked
1 teaspoon chia seed
Blend on high in a high-speed blender for 45 seconds. Strain through 3 nut mylk bags (1 inside the other to create a 3 layered bag) into a bowl. Pour back into a clean blender and add:
3 tablespoons Dandy Blend (herbal, gluten-free coffee flavoring powder)
2 tablespoons birch xylitol
1 tablespoon cold pressed olive oil
1/4 teaspoon stevia extract powder (KAL and NOW brands have a great non-bitter flavor). Use a dash more to taste.
Few pinches sea salt
Blend well. Pour into a bowl and place in freezer for several hours or pour into an ice cream maker if you have one. Serve in rounded scoops, sprinkle with blue green flakes, vanilla bean powder, and drizzle with warm my low-glycemic chocolate sauce:
LOW-GLY CHOCOLATE SAUCE RECIPE
1/4 cup birch xylitol
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
3 tablespoons tonic herb tea or spring water
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon raw almond butter
1 pinch stevia extract powder
Blend in a blender on medium-low for 5 – 10 minutes or until all the xylitol crystals are dissolved. Pour into jar or bowl and warm in low-temperature oven for a few minutes before serving on ice creme.
Note that my Low-Gly Chocolate Sauce recipe is proportionately high in birch xylitol. Be careful not to have too much at once or the xylitol will make your stomach uncomfortable. My other xylitol-sweetened recipes usually have a low, diluted amount of xylitol where it doesn’t pose this issue, but in this case – to replace typical sugar syrup content of all other chocolate sauce recipes – I used more of the very low glycemic birch xylitol.
My mission is to create recipes and formulae that combine rich flavors, ancient herbs, superfoods and wild foods, in a way that inspires people to take charge of their health and have total joy doing so. The latest pinicle of this mission is my book Superfood Beauty Elixirs. Please purchase a copy today so that you can join me in creating paradise on Earth and in your body one slurp at a time!
My 100% healthful Vanilla Malt & Chocolate Butterscotch Swirl Gelato Fudgsicles will blast your taste buds with rich creamy flavor without spiking your blood sugar. This superfoodized delicacy is designed to nourish your immune system and nervous system with its content of long-chain omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin c, tonic herbs, lecithin, and antioxidants.
Place in a high-speed blender:
1 ½ cups organic pumpkin seeds (soaked and dehydrated rocks!)
1 1/4 cup warm tonic herb tea, gynostemma tea or spring water
½ cup organic walnuts (soaked and dehydrated rocks!) (careful of bulk-bin walnuts as they are notoriously oxidized, moldy or rancid)
4 organic pastured egg yolks or for a vegan option use a couple tablespoons non-gmo soy lecithin and a few dashes of spring water and cold pressed olive oil
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cold-pressed organic 100% olive oil or organic ghee or 1/4 cup raw heavy cream
1 teaspoon organic almond butter
Blend on high for 1 minute and strain through 3 nut mylk bags (1 bag inside the other to create a 3-layered bag) into a large bowl. Pour back into the blender and then add:
2 tablespoons birch xylitol or wholesome sweeteners of choice
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
¼ teaspoon stevia extract powder or ½ teaspoon for full sweetness (KAL brand and NOW brand are great tasting)
Blend on high for 15 seconds and then pour most into a pitcher leaving 1 cup in blender, then add to blender:
¼ cup organic raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon birch xylitol or wholesome sweeteners of choice
¾ teaspoon freshly squeeze organic lemon juice
1/2 – 1 teaspoon Longevity Power LEVITY
Blend lightly. Set up your fudgecicle molds and pour the vanilla malt gelato (in pitcher) and chocolate butterscotch gelato (in blender) into the molds simultaneously to create a swirl of light and dark cream. Freeze for several hours. You may also just pour into a bowl and freeze to make gelato, or use a home ice cream maker if you have one. ENJOY!
Reminiscent of the cream-filed chocolate Cadbury egg – but with a caramel overtone – my superfood-rich, tonic-herb-injected, “non-glycemic” Chocolate Easter Egg will knock your toesocks off! This spring season, stay nostalgic for chocolate while adding in the immune-system modulating tonic herbs while cutting out the sugar.
First, make the cream center:
1/2 cup birch xylitol
1/4 cup tonic herb tea (or spring water)
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon non-gmo soy lecithin powder
1 tablespoon raw cacao butter
1 tablespoon very creamy almond butter
3 pinches kudzu flakes/powder
2 pinches sea salt
2 pinches vanilla bean powder
1 pinch stevia extract powder
Whisk the ingredients together in a pan on simmer (turn the stove top on and off to keep “raw” temperature levels) to melt the ingredients together. Do not overheat. Then pour (and scrape with a silicone spatula) into a blender and blend for 30 seconds to finish homogenizing. Pour into ice cube trays (silicone trays are best) and freeze for 4 – 12 hours until somewhat firm (won’t actually freeze). Meanwhile, make the chocolate coating:
1/2 cup chopped raw cacao paste
2 tablespoons chopped raw cacao butter
1 teaspoon very creamy almond butter
1/2 teaspoon birch xylitol
1 – 2 pinches stevia extract powder
1 – 2 pinches vanilla bean powder
1 pinch sea salt
Place in a small bowl and warm in an oven (or dehydrator) set to 125*F until cacao paste and cacao butter are melted. Spatula into a very well dried blender and blend until creamy. Spatula back into bowl and reheat chocolate in oven (or dehydrator), using a thermometer inserted into the chocolate until it reaches no more than 115*F – 120*F. Keep warm until cream center recipe becomes a cold sticky gel. Pour the chocolate into half-egg molds or ice cube trays, filling each mold about 2/3 to the rim. Then scoop the cream centers out with a spoon, ball up with your fingers and push into the chocolate molds until covered. Let sit in the refrigerator until solidified. Pop out when ready and enjoy a post-Easter treat. Because of the cream center’s water content, keep refrigerated.

WATCH THE ORIGINAL UNREMIXED SUPERFOODS SONG HERE: http://christianbates.com/?p=676
“Superfoods Song” is a spoof on the “Yacco’s Nations of the World” cartoon which is an adaptation of the Mexican Hat Dance song. I knew there was a positive reason I loved cartoons as a kid…to spoof them as an adult!
I did the singing for the original song. In this remixed version above, Bethanne Wanamaker takes the mic while I remix with wicked beats. The remixed song is available on Bethanne’s YouTube channel: EdibleGoddess (you are invited to SUBSCRIBE).
