I am so happy to say that I won the Coffee Extract Giveaway- Week #7 at Rawfully Tempting.
Here are the details:
Rawfully Tempting

I decided to use it in my ultimate favorite breakfast. My raw carob/cacao breakfast pudding. I have written several times how much I LOVE this morning meal. The other day I made such a nutrient dense, power packed pudding that when dinner time rolled around I still wasn't hungry! I'm telling you, this is the most satisfying raw meal I have had thus far. Here is that recipe:
Raw Power Pudding
by Elizabeth

11/2 large bananas
11/2 Haas avocados
1 T Lucuma powder
1 tsp Nutritional yeast powder
1 T Lecithin powder
1 T Nutiva Hemp Seeds
1 t raw honey
2-4 T of a mixture of raw carob and raw cacao powders
1 capful of vanilla
pinch of sea salt
1 T Gogi berries, soaked (reserve for topping)
1 T buckwheat krispies (reserve for topping)

Process till ,in a small-sized food processor. Top pudding with the buckwheat krispies and Gogi berries. Enjoy!

Well, since I had my new bottle of Coffee Extract from Medicine Flower, I decided to make a Raw Mocha Pudding today. I kept the ingredients simple in this one because I really wanted to experience the flavor of the extract.
I was so excited when my package arrived. It had my extract and a tiny sample bar of soap. The soap is wonderful by the way. I have been using it in the shower. That tiny bar of soap really lasts a long time!! It smells so good, makes me hungry...has the smell of oregano almost. Too funny!!

My Wonderful Prizes!!

For this pudding I used the following recipe:

You want to talk about amazing!! This was absolutely wonderful. I am so thrilled that I have this wonderful extract in my pantry. Next month I will be using it in my Raw Cacao Birthday Cake. I can't wait. But until then, I will be making several batches of my Raw Power Puddings using this extract.
~JMJ~ Today I am grateful for the evening I had last night, floating around on my raft watching our three youngest swim. Oh how I love summer evenings. I am going to enjoy each and every last one. Our new homeschool year starts soon and I am not ready to give up our "vacation time" just yet. :) But, I am not worried because any time we need a break, Mom says we can and we do it!! Oh the freedoms of schooling your own children. It is a beautiful thing!
