When I arrived in the island of Djerba, Tunisia, I tasted the best mandarins ever. However, bananas do not grow in Djerba. For the first time in many years, I spend several days without eating any bananas. I have to admit I was quite hungry during these first days. I did not have any avocado either. After a quick trip to Houmt Souk, I came back with more than twenty delicious bananas and a generous quantity of Tunisian dates. Oh boy did it made a difference to my well-being! Suddenly, my digestion was back to normal, I had more energy and my mood lifted.
Bananas are not only absolutely delicious and sweet, but our body benefits greatly from their nutritional gems. One is lutein, an antioxidant which protect our eyes. The second is potassium, which helps magnesium to be better absorbed by the body.
After two nice green smoothies, I make an avocado and dill dip with the blender. Then, I cut slices of pumpkin and fennel, even apple, and simply dip them. If such a quick meal does not require food preparation time, I nevertheless take the time to enjoy it.
My friend, my sister, even on the days you do not have fresh greens available, you can still enjoy a delicious green smoothie. Mix beautiful bananas, pears, pineapple, carob and green powder, like Raw Reserve.
Loaded with minerals, celery juice is easy to do. Taken first thing in the morning, it is the best secret for a clear and smooth skin.
I recorded a video to show you how a mylk bag is so easy to use here.
Today, let’s use carob powder instead of raw cacao. Carob is rich is calcium while raw chocolate is rich in magnesium so both are great. This recipe is as original as it is delicious:
- 2 bananas,
- some thin pumpkin slices,
- rosemary leaves,
- 1 table spoon of coconut yoghurt if you have (it is optional),
- 1 or 2 table spoons of carob power (raw carob powder is on Raw Living),
- water or vegan milk, and most of all
- lots of gratitude.
Who said celery was only for savoury dishes? Add pears, bananas, raw chocolate and maca powder and you cannot help but smile.

For this salad, simply mix together:

For the amazing dressing, add to your blender:

- sea salt,
- apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice), and
- coconut yoghurt (or water).
