  • 2 C. hot water
  • 1 C. Dates, pitted
  • 2/3 C. raw cashews
  • 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 tsp. Orange rind


Mix the 2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder with a small amount of water to dissolve it. Then pour it into a blender along with all the other ingredients. Blend on high for approximately 5 minutes. Pour mixture from the blender into a medium sized pot. Cook mixture (stir constantly) over low to medium heat for approximately 3-5 minutes. Eat either hot or cold. If you would like to eat it cold, pour it into a storage container and then store overnight or for at least an hour or two. Garnish with banana slices (or any other cut up fruit) and add milk if desired.

Recipe from Jessica Jackowski, Eastern Michigan Dietetic Student

This pudding is yummy and very soothing. It would look beautiful with a few fresh raspberries or pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top.


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
