IMG_0235 I'm a little cherry crazy these days. Near my area, in the Okanagan, we grow incredible cherries this time of year and they become a regular part of my diet. Besides daily cherry smoothies for breakfast, they make a great snack, and find their way into desserts. Of course they pair well with chocol...

IMG_0098 The other day I had a craving for raspberries. Actually, Ive been eating a lot of berries in general lately. Gotta go with those healthy cravings right?! I figure there must be something in the berries that my body needs. Besides loading up my daily smoothies with berries, I thought it would be fun...

IMG_0032 I think its pretty obvious that I love maca. I use it in recipes often, and its always a great addition to smoothies! The nutritional benefits are high, and as an adaptogen it has the ability to give your body what it needs. Pretty amazing considering we all have different needs and it can deliver ...

IMG_0560 It's only a few days until Valentines Day. If you're anything like me, that means an abundance of chocolate to celebrate the occasion along with a loved one. Healthy, raw, vegan chocolate though! My recipe today combines cacao with libido enhancing superfood, maca!!! A rich dark chocolate cup gets ...

IMG_0529 I used to love granola for breakfast when I was a child. It was a special treat that my mom only bought occasionally and only let me have a small bowl of it - maybe because she knew how unhealthy it is. Regular granola is filled with sugar and unhealthy oils. I don't know about you but that's not e...

Image The other day I had just enough extra young coconut pulp on hand from making another recipe that I decided to throw it into a blueberry smoothie. It was SO good! Smooth, creamy, flavourful, and full of nutrition. You could replace the blueberries with any other berry that you have on hand. Strawber...

This cake is really rich and quite intensive to play around with while making it, but the end product is worth it! This uses a smaller spring form to save on cost and time. You really only need a small slice anyways to satisfy, however that didn't stop my roommate from eating half of it for breakfas...

Bananas, Coconuts, and Mulberries, what a combination! While I love a 20+ ingredient super-food smoothie as much as anyone, there can be such beauty in food that is simple yet elegant. I find this to be even more true when it comes to the right combination of flavors that balance out each other. The...

This recipe is so simple and really satisfying! Why I never thought to make it in the past 2 years since I've been doing this raw food thing is really quite astonishing considering how much I enjoy chocolate and apples! The recipe below will make between 3-6 covered apples depending on the size. Be ...

When deciding to take on a 40 day raw vegan challenge one of my first thoughts is pasta and more accurately rawsta! I have had several raw pastas before, but had never had one of my all time favorites--Puttanesca. With access to our Really Raw Olives-Moroccan Spice and access to Google to find a rec...

With St. Patrick's Day recently passed, I couldn't help but think of something green. Mint was the first thing that came to mind...and if you are familiar with my posts, I'm sure you can guess what followed. Chocolate! Yes, mint chocolate- a classic flavor combination for a reason. As an added benef...

Valentine's Day is around the corner and you know what that means- chocolate! Well ok, I suppose it can mean a lot of other things as well: love, flowers, excitement, romance, joy ...or maybe even nothing. But you're probably not here for relationship reflefctions so let's talk about chocolate ;-)...

Oh, how I love a simple recipe that yields incredible results. This recipe is so simple to make (yes, there's a bit of prep time involved but it's really just blending) and I promise you will get rave reviews. While the combination of ingredients may seem a bit odd at first, the resulting flavor is ...

So Thanksgiving is now over and I'm sure you've had your fill of pumpkin pies (raw or otherwise)...or at least I hope so. But I for one can never get enough of pumpkin this time of year. The funny thing is that it's actually not pumpkin I crave but the sweet, spicy blend of spices that create the di...

Revealing our best selling Salad Sprinkles recipe? You bet! Depending on how long you've been following Vivapura, you may know that we used to sell a product called Salad Sprinkles. It was literally one of our best sellers, people were so upset when we removed it from the line. And as much as we lov...

Now this is truly a treat for everyone (even if you have glycemic issues). Being in Patagonia near the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, one gets quite familiar with the low glycemic lifestyle and the potentially harmful effects of eating a high glycemic diet. The Tree has made such an impact heali...

Mint chocolate fudge as a health food? Oh yes! This fudge is ridiculously decadent AND ridiculously good for you. Why? Because it features our new green hemp butter. Our new butter is stone-ground from our green hemp seed meal which is higher in fiber and chlorophyll than traditional hemp seeds an...

I absolutely love this dessert. So many raw desserts try to mimic their non-raw butter and sugar based counterparts (raw brownies, raw cakes, etc). This one is a true celebration of it's exquisite Superfood ingredients and not trying to be anything other than it's glorious self...who knew a dessert ...
