Alkalizing Lemon & Lemon Mousse Parfait

Alkalizing Lemon- Lime Mousse Parfait                                      Serves 4-6

¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (key limes are best)

¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 large ripe avocado

¼ cup honey or to taste (or powdered stevia for non-sugar version)

dash sea salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavoring

1 cup homemade coconut whipped cream or Truwhip, divided (see below)*

1 cup fresh blueberries or blackberries

Garnish with mint leaves, lime or lemon wheels or just a little zest

In standard food processor pulse avocados a few times to cream, then blend in lime and lemon juices, honey, vanilla and salt until very smooth and creamy.  Add 1/2 cup whipped cream and pulse a few times just until incorporated.  This can all be done with an electric mixer as well, just cream the avocado first and fold in cream last.  Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

When ready to serve, layer berries, mousse, and whipped cream anyway you want into pretty parfait glasses and garnish.

This is an amazing, taste bud tantalizing experience!  The best part – It is actually helps to balance the body’s pH!

Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream                                                      Serves 4 – 6

1 cup coconut cream*

2 teaspoon honey (or 1 teaspoon powdered stevia for a “no sugar” version)

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon lemon zest

Large chilled stainless bowl

Remove coconut cream from 1 can of chilled full fat coconut milk. (*Note:  Allow can to sit undisturbed for at least 48 hours to allow the water and cream to separate. I keep a can on hand in the fridge at all times). Open can and scoop the cream off the top into your cold stainless bowl, (water will be at the bottom of the can – save for a smoothie). Add honey, vanilla and zest. With a hand held mixer or stand mixer, whip the cream until light and fluffy.  Keep cold until ready to serve.

Truwhip is a packaged coconut whipped cream (like cool whip).  It can be found in the freezer section of your whole foods store.  It’s really delicious, but does contain a little sugar.  After detox, this is a convenient alternative to homemade.

Man Made Vs Nature Made..

Is it possible this genetically modified version of our “symbol of health” will not be fully recognized by our bodies?  It makes sense to me that nature supplies what the natural, organic human body needs for health and maintenance.  Nature and the human animal are co-dependent.   I’m not convinced man can duplicate this natural, complimentary process.  Does science really understand the miracle of life and nature? Science says the nutrients in the GMO products and organic products are the same, but that doesn’t mean our bodies can use them. Can science really decode the conversation between our natural food source and our natural bodies?  We’ve seen what happens to synthetic vitamins – They end up the sewer system, undigested.  We know our bodies are so unique, they are not compatible with foreign substances placed in the body and will even reject a perfectly good organ.  Our bodies rebel against bacteria, viruses, bugs. etc.  I for one, believe all the chemicals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, modified and processed foods are taking their toll on public health simply because they are NOT compatible to the miracle that is our natural, organic body.  Food For Thought….
