    Flaxseed Tea

    You Need: Two heaped tablespoons of organic flaxseeds. One litre of clean water. You may use more water to end up with a thinner tea. A large pan. Making It: Put the seeds and water in the pan, bring it to a slight simmer. Do not allow to overflow onto your cooker - very messy! As soon as it has come to a simmer turn it off straight away and leave it to stand overnight. Next morning bring the tea to a slight simmer again, put the pan on the smallest ring or element and turn the heat down to the lowest setting. Leave the tea to cook for about an hour by which time you will have perfect flax tea. Strain off the seeds and discard them. Put some into a mug and enjoy “Hug in a Mug”. The tea can be allowed to cool and put in a glass jug in the fridge. You can take out a mugful at a time and reheat it in a pan whenever you want some more. It will last for a couple of days as long as you keep it in the fridge. To use in an enema; about half a pint of tea in one and a half pints of warm water. Hold for between 15 – 20 mins. The purpose of a linseed tea enema is to offer reassurance and a strong message of hydration & soothing via the bowel itself, which will pass that message on to the liver.

      Vanilla Almond Milk

      1 cup soaked almonds 
(Soak in a bowl in the refrigerator overnight and rinse before using) 
3 cups water 
1 Vanilla bean, seeds scooped out 
3-5 soft pitted dates (or soak hard dates in water for 1/2 hour) or other sweetener to taste such as honey or stevia Measure 1 cup almonds and pour into sprout bag. Close the sprout bag and soak the almonds in water overnight or for at least 6 hrs. Rinse the soaked almonds with water and put the almonds into the blender with three cups of water. Blend the almonds and water until smooth. Pour the puree into the sprout bag over a big bowl.
Squeeze the almond pulp through the sprout bag to extract the milk.
Drink as is, or put the almond milk back into the blender and blend in vanilla, dates, or other sweeteners such as honey or stevia. Save the almond pulp for cookie or cracker recipes that require almond pulp or almonds. For More Recipes, Sprout Bags, and Vanilla Beans please go to www.rawglow.com

        Cacao Mylkshake

        1-2 cups of almond mylk – chilled 1 tbsp cacao powder 1 dsp maca 2 frozen bananas 1 small avocado 2 tsp lecithin The result is a thick, smooth and creamy shake which can be enjoyed for breakfast or as a dessert. The quantities given make a shake which fills a pint glass. Remarks: The thick texture is achieved using frozen bananas. The avocado is used to provide the creaminess. Maca provides a slightly malty taste and balances out any stimulating effects of the cacao by supporting the adrenals. However, the recipes works without it. Variations For a more chocolaty shake, add more cacao If not sweet enough, add more frozen banana, agave/honey or a couple of mejool dates To obtain a praline flavour, add more cacao and use hazelnuts to make the mylk instead of almonds The recipe works without the avocado but the texture is not as creamy.
