Raw Coconut Milk It all started with a craving for raw Pad Thai. I haven’t made it yet, and have been wanting to for quite a while. Knowing that coconut milk is an important ingredient that I want in my Pad Thai sauce, I set out to make fresh, raw coconut milk for my raw Pad Thai raw food recipe. I use young Thai coconuts all the time. I open them with ease (see here) and am very familiar with how to use them. I have memories, as a very little girl, of my mother trying to open a coconut. Well, here is the thing. To open the coconut, simply tap (ok…whack) the coconut around the midline with the back of a cleaver. After a couple of good whacks, you will hear a crack. You can then either pry out the flesh with a table knife or my favorite, turn it over, give the outside shell a good whack with a hammer and the flesh will just pop right out (this does require breaking the shell). Once you pop the flesh out, peel off the brown skin with a vegetable peeler. Raw Coconut Flour Fresh Coconut Milk 2. 3. 1.

Raw Fruit & Chia Jam: My Grown-up PB&J | Every school day from 1st grade through graduation, I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch, and I couldn’t get enough. I would spread on copious amounts of Peter Pan creamy peanut butter with just a little grape jelly, which was smashed between two slices of Iron Kids bread. As a child, I quickly learned that if the peanut butter did not go on both sides of the bread, the grape jelly would seep through and make the bread gross and soggy (I was a smart kid). I could still probably eat a PB&J every day, but gone are the days of the sugar and hydrogenated oil-filled peanut butter and the gelatinous ‘where’s the fruit’ jelly. Now the only thing missing to my perfect, nutritious PB&J sandwich is some healthy jelly. An easy, heat-free method of making all natural jam.
