Pizza & Cookies

First off, the pesto.

1 bunch of Thai sweet basil
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup soaked cashews
sea salt
1/4 an avocado
enough olive oil to process

Throw it all in the food processor until well incorporated.

I used some naan bread for the pizza crust and then covered it with pesto.

Some apple/kale juice while I'm cooking

My Pizza

2 naan
homemade pesto
handful of organic spinach
handful of crimini mushrooms
half a yellow bell pepper
half a tomato
1/4 an organic purple onion
mozzarella daiya cheese
cheddar daiya cheese

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.

This pizza was AWESOME! I was so proud of myself. I had some organic chocolate stout with it and didn't really like it.

Next up, almond milk.

Almond milk is so easy.

Almond milk

3 cups purified water
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 Tbsp agave
pinch sea salt

Blend all ingredients on high for 2 minutes. I didn't have cheesecloth so I had to use my tea strainer to strain it after. Strain the milk through the tea strainer or cheesecloth into a clean glass. Drink! Check out the recipe for raw hemp milk HERE.

Lastly, vegan chocolate cookies.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup white flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raw white sugar
3/4 cup vegan margarine
1/2 cup raw almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup or more vegan chocolate chips

Mix wet ingredients. Mix dry ingredients separate. Mix them all together. Add chocolate chips last. Bake at 300 for 15-20 minutes.
I had a wonderful day, goodnight :)


  1. i want to eat EVERYTHING here!!!! it all looks so so so good. i dont know why i never thought of pesto personal pizzas but i just have to make them now!!! you should be proud cause this all looks amazing!

  2. Mmmmmm... Yummy things u've got here!
    I succeeded in ordering chia seeds in my country finally!!! There's a new shop in the capital called Raw.z Huray!

  3. Jessica- you HAVE to try pizza with pesto! It is so amazing!

    Angi- oh good! I was actually just going to write you again about ordering chia. Let me know how you like it!

  4. How did I ever miss your blog? LOVE IT! Naan pizza rocks, I just made some the other day but with "Sheese" Sadly, Daiya has not really made an appearance where I live (yet). I just added your blog to my blogroll and I'm a follower of yours now :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by and adding me! Glad you like the blog! I love naan pizza! Oh, how is Sheese? I have been DYING to try Sheese! I have emailed three different main health stores in Hawaii requesting them to carry it and nothing so far. It is SO expensive to ship here if I buy it on their site too. Is it worth it? Is it amazing?

  6. that pizza LOOOOOOOOOKS amazing...i want a bite...


  7. That pizza sounds fantastic...and so nutritious too. All of it made me hungry: the almond milk, the cookies too...your photos are great too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog...I'll be keeping up with yours for sure!

  8. Nelly- It was sooo good! Come over and have a bite :) I just made it last night and I am thinking about making some more tonight. Am I crazy?

    Rose- Thanks for stopping by Rose! The pizza was packed with veggies! I have been trying to get better pictures lately, but it is hard because I do not have a camera so all the pictures are taken with my phone :)

  9. No baking soda in the cookies? They look phenomenal w/the glass of milk.

  10. Shen- Nope, and they baked just fine! You could add a teaspoon probably and it might make them rise a little more, but I didn't find it necessary :) Don't they look yummy?
