New ingredient...and a recipe...

So When we were visiting my brother a while ago and were at a farmers market (yup he lives in CA, hence the markets are still open this time of year) we stumbled upon a dessert that was 'sugar free' without artificial sweeteners and seemed to get along with Jareds BG :) It involved Raw coconut, pure unsweetened cocoa, pure shredded coconut dried, and agave for a bit of sweet.

I was looking for the recipe for raw coconut haystacks... and in my searching found this other interesting recipe which would be a great to try...

The Raw Food Frosting Recipe I got was from a post on the Raw Freedom Community. While this recipe features lemon juice, you could make the same recipe with most fruits. I have reprinted it below with the bloggers modifications. (

1 C coconut oil
1/4 C agave nectar
rind from 1 large lemon
1/4 C lemon juice

Beat the coconut oil until creamy.
Mix in the agave nectar.
Mix in the lemon rind and lemon juice.
The frosting will spread well. However, it will not be thick enough to pipe. After you put it in the refrigerator, it will harden.

I liked it much better cold and would strongly recommend serving it that way.

I have heard that both raw organic (if possible) coconut oil and agave are both low glycemic and pretty balanced overall for blood sugar responses..

This is the time of year when sweets come out and it is always a good idea to have some good 'D'Friendly recipies up your sleeve.

If i find the one for the haystacks.. or experiment and succeed... Iwill post it too.
