Strawberry Moon Magic

Saturday, 26th June 2010 is a Full Moon known as the Strawberry Moon

Getting a drink of water from our kitchen around midnight, I had no need to turn on the lights. The large round moon, dressed in a gorgeous creamy yellow was pouring bright shining light through the window, looking so mysterious and magical!

Indulging in my favourite hobby, surfing on the Internet (I'm so glad I live in this age with all the amazing technology) - did you know that the full moon of each month has a name?

June is known as the Strawberry Moon (also Rose or Sun Moon).

The reason for the name is long ago, the Native Americans of North America kept track of the seasons by giving descriptive names to the recurring Full Moons. June was a time to pick ripening strawberries thus - Strawberry Moon. In Europe they named the June Full Moon the Rose Moon. And in India and China and other countries - the visible Full Moon was named according to their climate and culture.

The moon has always been symbolic in Pagan and Wiccan practises; I think we are all drawn, just like the tides of the oceans, to the mystery and wonder of the moon.

Saturday, 26th June 2010 is a Full Moon - Strawberry Moon

Let's celebrate this mysterious lunar wonder and magic up my raw and delicious nutritious Strawberry Moon Magic Smoothie!

Delicious Nutritious Beelicious Smoothie

Wow, Harr and I have just made one of our best RAW Smoothies ever in the quest of a RAW Lifestyle!  

It's so simple - we only used Pineapple and Banana and a few superfoods; but OMG!  What bliss.  It was filling and delicious and wholly satified my sweet tooth almost as much as chocolate. 

Here's the recipe: 

Beelicious Banana Pine Smoothie
1 Pineapple - peeled
  2 Bananas
Maca Powder (1 or 2 teaspoons)
Bee Pollen (1 teaspoon)

  Chop up pineapple into small pieces and put into a blender with a cup water and whizz up.  Add the banana, a teaspoon or two of Bee Pollen and Maca.  Blend till smooth (add more water if you like).

Isn't this the most Beelicious drink - healthy and full of superb superfoods.

I wonder if this would freeze as ice cream?

Read and research EVERYTHING widely and wisely - then decide for yourself what works for YOU!

Maca - tastes very like Horlicks:
  •  Is a great addition to desserts, sweet treats and icecreams.
  • Has an amazing synergistic effect when combined with Raw Cacao Nibs or Powder.  
  • Makes a delicious nutritious addition to home made RAW Cacao Chocolate. 
  • Turns an ordinary green smoothie into a power food.

Are you ready to power up with this sought after, energy boosting Superfood?

 Maca, grows in the Andes mountains, typically at altitudes of over 12,000 feet.  The soils of these high plateaus are extremely rich in minerals which probably accounts for the amazing array of minerals and health benefits of Maca.

Like many Superfoods, Maca  was highly regarded and used in some cases as a currency!

Maca is a root vegetable, has a likeness to a small turnip and is a complete protein, containing high amounts of enzymes,vitamins, amino acids and minerals such as zinc, calcium, iron and potassium.

There are legends that Incan warriors used to eat Maca before going into battle, believing it would give them invincible strength and stamina!

RAW Food Quest leads to delicious Smoothies!

On this RAW Food Quest, we got into Smoothies - I love Smoothies.  It's a super quick way to non-cook and enjoy combinations of different fruits and vegetables that keep hunger at bay, increase your energy levels and health.

I started out in the beginning by having Smoothies when I got indoors after work.  Popping fruit and veg into a blender with a cup or so of water for a delicious sustaining drink, ready in less than five minutes.  But then I noticed I had loads more energy in the evenings.

Life before Smoothies: I would collapse exhausted in front of the TV for the evening and then trundle off to bed. 
Life after a few weeks of Smoothies:   more energy - I'm even doing a Blog! 

Now we have Smoothies in the morning as well as the evenings and it's such fun trying out different combinations of fruit and veg - absolutely delicious (although a few combinations were definitely not moreish!)

This evening Harrington made a smoothie using beetroot which gave the drink the most gorgeous colour and tasted as good as it looked.  Here's our Recipe:

Crimson Blood Infusion

Half a pineapple (peel and cut up into small pieces)
1 Beetroot (peel and slice finely)
1 Passion Fruit
1 Cup of Water
A sprinkle of Bee Pollen

Put into a blender and whizz up the mixture for a minute or so.  Pour into glasses and Enjoy!

We get our excellent quality Bee Pollen from Peter and Beryn Daniel    - their website is
