It's not much longer before I'll be serving all kinds of delicious foods to those attending the 3-Day Raw Food Spiritual Ashram Retreat! I've been working on the recipes and taking pictures to include with the bound materials going home with everyone attending the retreat.

I know I won't be able to meet all of you that weekend, and therefore will miss out on serving you these flavor-filled foods. So, I'll share some of the recipes here on the blog with you! Today, I'd like to share with you the organic fruit salad with lemon cream sauce (that will be served with Jim's brownies and apples tossed with cinnamon and walnuts).

Fruit Salad with Lemon Cream Sauce

12 ounces of raspberries

1 pound of strawberries

2 navel oranges

2 kiwi fruits

12 ounces of blueberries

1 banana

Lemon Cream Sauce

1/2 cup cashews (soaked for two hours, is best)

1/2 cup water

3 Tablespoons lemon juice

3 Tablespoons agave

1 1/2 teaspoons shredded coconut

few dashes of salt


Wash and chop fruit, as desired, for the fruit salad (remove peels of oranges, bananas, and kiwi fruit). Blend together all ingredients for the cream sauce. Serve chopped fruit in bowls, topped with lemon cream sauce. This makes four servings.Enjoy!

It is a time that I have too many commitments with the end of the school years events, but I will be there in spirit! I am going to make you recipes here for my hubby.

You mean you don't have a Leer Jet, Yardsnacker? After "selling out" as you said you've done, I'm sure you'll be able to buy one soon. :-P

Thanks for stopping by, Sam!

Lots of love to you,
