Have you ever started to cook one thing, and it ends up becoming something totally different? Well, that’s what happened with this vegan, gluten-free Sweet Potato, Red Lentil and Leek Soup.

The raw cacao adds a hint of chocolate aftertaste, but is not too strong,… Continue reading Vanilla Strawberry Mint Raw Cacao Smoothie
