Sugar Kissed Pecan Mylk

sugar kissed pecan milk 005Once upon a time I was known to make pecan pies and butter tarts and consume way too many of them! I had to stop myself from making them because I didn’t have any self control!

One quick trick I learned was to have a (maybe three) pitted date with a pecan inside and believe it or not, without all the pecan filling and pastry this did the trick!

I’ve always loved the creamy caramel taste and have found another recipe that is delicious, nutritious and satisfies the caramel craving. This recipe comes from The Simply Raw Kitchen by Natasha Kyssa.

 

 

Ingredients (buy organic where possible):

  • 1 cup pecans soaked for 8 hours and rinsed
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup or a few drops of stevia (or even a pitted date or two)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or powder
  • ½- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Blend in your vitamix or blender until smooth. You can use mylk bag to strain the mixture if you like a silkier texture.

Enjoy it slightly warmed if you wish.

Pecans are a good source of vitamins A,B, and C, iron, calcium, potassium and phosphorous.

 

 

 

coconutWhy add Coconut Oil?

Healthy fat that is a highly efficient fuel that helps your body burn fat and create instant energy.  Can raise your HDL (good cholesterol) and help to protect you against heart disease. Coconut oil will boost your immune system, plus it’s a natural antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, making it very effective at combating yeast and parasites.1

Coconut Oil is ideal for dry, rough and wrinkled skin because it contains MCFA’s (medium chained fatty acids) and is easily absorbed by the skin. It prevents stretch marks and lightens existing ones.  Its antiseptic elements keep the skin young, healthy and free from infections.  It’s also an excellent lip balm2.

I keep it in my bathroom, kitchen and a little jar in my purse. I also use it for cooking, baking, in my smoothies and have a tsp-tbsp before meals.

Consuming coconut oil regularly restores thyroid function, often relieves hypothyroidism and actually increase the metabolic rate, leading to weight loss2
