You’ve heard the buzz about raw meals, but would you — or your kids — ever catch on to this trend? Raw food is rich in nutrients, living enzymes, typically high in fiber, and pretty to look at to boot! Whole, healthy foods like grains, fruits, nuts, seeds and veggies are some of the best ingredients you can feed your kids. So besides salad, what are some raw, kid-friendly recipes? Well how about cashew dip, chia pudding, and raw, no-bake granola bars for starters? You will notice that many of these raw recipes involve using your blender (high-speed blenders work best, but are not necessary for all the recipes). Blended recipes (like raw almond milk) are some of the most basic components of raw food cuisine that are very easy to get your family to try. Here are 11 of my favorite kid-friendly raw, vegan recipes!
Note: You don’t have to go 100% raw to get raw food benefits. If you serve up raw cashew spread on non-raw toast, that’s still a pretty good partially raw snack! Infuse your menu with mostly raw foods (rich in nutrients, enzymes, and fiber) and you will taste and feel the difference.
