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.

Sundae Sundae Sundae!

RECIPE:

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.

Bit and beginning to melt!

 

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

2 teaspoons Longevity Power Maca Bliss or He Shou Wu or Goji Joy or Mushroom Immunity or Longevity in a Bottle

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!

Twas the night before Christmas, when your kitchen elf self rocked it,

Making Raw Superfood Cookies, covered in chocolate.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a healthy Santa Claus cookie! St. Nick will really be flyin’ tonight after he takes a few bites out of these easy-to-make Superfoodized low-glycemic raw chocolate-striped cookies.

Christmas morning there will be bites out of these...

2 cups Brazil nuts, soaked

1/2 cup coconut shreds

3 tablespoons hazel nut butter (or your nut butter of choice, but hazel has a great “winter flavor” to it)

3 tablespoons birch xylitol (or your favorite sweetener of choice)

1 tablespoon cacao butter

1 1/2 teaspoons goji berries

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 pinch Organic stevia extract powder (NOW brand is the most mellow sweet flavor)

1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg (grate using a fine micro-plane)

1 pinch cinnamon

1 pinch grated fresh ginger

OPTIONAL: a few pinches of medicinal mushroom extract powder

Blend in a food processor until sticky but still mealy. Make lightly pressed (don’t over compress as we want our cookies light and crispy, not too dense) cookie shapes on a dehydrator tray with solid sheet. Dehydrate at about 120*F for 6 to 12 hours, until crispy on the outside but still somewhat moist on the inside.

You can start eating them warm at this point, but to make the chocolate stripes, first place the cookies on a plate in the refrigerator until cool. Then drizzle stripes of melted chocoalte over the cookies using your favorite raw chocolate recipe. Don’t use raw chocolate syrup. Use a chocolate that contains cacao butter or coconut oil in it so that the chocolate solidifies on the chilled cookies.

Serve yourself and serve Santa and his elves,

Just don’t let the dog or cat serve themselves.

Merry Christmas!
