Book Launch Party

 

Last Saturday we had a rawkin good time at the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Raw Food Detox book launch party. About 25 people showed up for a eat, meet and greet event. There was a tasty sampling of recipes from my new book and some delicious “mocktails” that I made up as well. Since mint is growing in abundance I created a Mojito style “mocktail”, then of course there are the berries that are in abundance in these parts. That inspired a Very Berry Lemonade and finally we had to bring in the chocolate with Maca Mudslide. The recipes below are for a 1/2 gallon or one full vitamix worth of mocktail.
