Carrot Cake Smoothie

Last night I completed my Landmark Forum! What an amazing journey it was. It was well worth every tear I shed! I learned a whole new way of communicating and thinking! So, now it's back to work!

Today I thought I'd give you a recipe for a dessert smoothie from the ebook I released this summer with Dr Ariel Policano called the Avocado Smoothie book. This is the yummiest smoothie, just like a dessert! I had fun creating this recipe. (See link below)

When you add a bit of fat to your smoothies it keeps you feeling full longer, stabilizes blood sugar and assists absorption of nutrients. The nice thing about the avocado is that it takes on the flavor of what it's mixed with.

I also would like to start featuring some of the amazing raw people in the raw and high raw community! There are so many cool people doing awesome things! We need to hear from you! So if you have a story to share or a recipe, book or other rawkin' thing you'd like to share, email me! We need to hear from YOU!

As a community we share and heal. Your story may very well help or inspire someone out there! This Friday I'm going to kick it off with Heather Scott! So tune in every Friday for some inspiration!
