Vegan Mofo!

What is Vegan Mofo? Click ME!

That's right, a whole month of Vegan awesomeness (but when isn't vegan awesome you ask... well. I don't know. But still) I shall be sharing my yummiest and most make-worthy vegan cooking adventures with you for a whole month. 
To start, I'll be sharing some of my favourite raw vegan foods since I'm on a raw detox, but then there's going to be heaps of photos, recipes and adaptations of all my favourite vegan/ adapted to vegan creations, all which will be throughly tested on my {veg-friendly to complete omnivorous} family of testers that I have going on to test it's perfectness.

Stick around with me for the whole month and as my final post I think I might share my ultimate Veg Burger. The one that I serve at dinner-parties, my most requested meal; my "This is better than McDonalds" Big-Mac.

Raw Pumpkin Smoothie

Okay, it's spring now where I live, and we definitely don't have the same sort of love for sweet pumpkin dishes as in other parts of the world (No pumpkin in a can or pumpkin pie here) but I'm looking to incorporate as many different foods in my raw detox, so here's my pumpkin hit. Inspired by This Recipe from In the Raw, I adapted it as I'm not allowed nut milk or sweetener, and I like to be able to taste the spice.

Pumpkin Smoothie  raw, vegan, gluten free

1 Tbs Chia seeds
1 Cup Water
1 cup diced pumpkin (I used kent variety that was easy to cut)
1 1/2 frozen bananas
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice

Soak chia seeds in water for about 20 mints. Add to blender and blend smithereens (into a milk). 
Slowly add the pumpkin and banana, then add the spices. Blend until completely smooth, add ice if too warm.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve, Delish!
