We promised to get weird right? How about 3 fabulous luncheon recipes to knock your friend's socks off followed by a backyard brunch that'll keep you wondering what was actually in those cocktails...

Crepes with cashew cream and mixed berries

Ingredients

  • 2 very ripe bananas

  • 1/2 cup flax meal (ground flax seeds)

  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup water

  • Vanilla Cream: 1 cup cashews (soaked overnight), 1 cup coconut meat, 1 cup water, 1/2 cup agave nectar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and pinch sea salt​

Instructions

  1. CREPES: Combine everything in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Spread out onto your Teflex liner in your dehydrator and dehydrate at 105 for 8-10 hours. Check on it frequently. At about 3-4 hours, when it is mostly dried on the top, you can flip the tray onto another mesh tray and peel the liner off. Score the layer into whatever shapes you'd like (I did 4 squares) and continue to dehydrate until completely dried, though not crispy.

  2. VANILLA CREAM: Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender - if it's too thick add more water​.

  3. Serve with mixed berries.

  • 2 ounces rosé wine

  • 1 ounce gin

  • 1 teaspoon rose simple syrup (recipe below)

  • 3 mint leaves

  1. Combine the strawberries, mint, syrup and bitters in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and muddle thoroughly until everything is well combined.

  2. Add gin and ice, stirring vigorously for 15 seconds.

  3. Pour into a glass and top with rosé.

Rose simple syrup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water​

  • 1 cup honey

  • Petals from 1 small, very perfume-y organic rose

- Oh, well, hello there, today I'm having a Ladies Luncheon. What's the difference between lunch and a luncheon? I have no idea but I'm inviting only ladies. I'm gonna show you how to make some appropriate dishes for a luncheon. Welcome to my dining room which is extra fruity today because we're making some fruity recipes. We're gonna start off with some crepes, super delicious. Then we're gonna make a mango mousse and then a cocktail with rose petals which is not a fruit but it also bright so will you accept this rose and come with me on this journey? I'll take that as a yes. Okay, so, we're gonna start off with our crepes. Crepes, crepes, this is actually a really cool way of making them because the main ingredient is bananas. And you want to use bananas that are pretty ripe, as ripe as you can get 'em, because that'll really do well with this recipe. The other main ingredient is flax seed, which is actually ground up. It's a great source of Omegas and fiber and then we're also gonna add cinnamon which is not only delicious but also really good for blood sugar levels. And let's get some water in here. And blend. This looks perfect, so you can see that the texture is pretty thick, so you're gonna take about a quarter cup and pour it straight on. I like to use the back of it to kind of spread it out. You want it pretty thin so that it won't take forever to dehydrate and so that you have a pretty thin, malleable crepe. Now I'm just going to pop this in my dehydrator for about eight hours so you gotta plan ahead for this luncheon. Maybe put it in the night before. Okay, so now we're going to make a really delicious cashew coconut filing for the crepe. We're gonna start off straining these cashews that I've been soaking for about four or five hours. This is really good because it makes the nuts easier to digest. Now we're gonna use some coconut meat. Then just a little bit of agave to sweeten this up because it is a sweet cream. A little bit of salt and vanilla and I'm gonna put about half of this cup of water in. And then we're gonna add more later as needed to get the texture we want and I'll blend. Now I'm just gonna try it. Super good, we basically have to just have to assemble. So I'm gonna go get the crepes. In TV time, it's been eight hours and these crepes are done. I'm just gonna put a little bit of our cream on here. And top with beautiful french berries. You can use whatever kind is your favorite. And these are all done. Now we can make our mango mousse. And it's especially awesome because these are some of the same ingredients that were in the previous recipe so when you're doing your shopping, it's a few less things to get. We're putting in some fresh coconut. Also some fresh mango, we're gonna put some lime juice in. This gives it a really nice, bright flavor. A little bit of agave, some coconut oil which is great because it's gonna help the whole thing set up in the fridge. And a nice pinch of salt, now we blend. Okay, all we really need to do is put these in the fridge and let them set up. I'm gonna add some coconut cream on top and maybe a little lime zest to make it a little fancier but that's it, super simple and super luxurious. And lastly, we are going to make a rose cocktail which is sort of a take on a French 75. And put some mint in, some strawberries. So this is my simple syrup, it's a rose simple syrup. It's just honey and water cooked down with some rose petals. Some bitters, and now I'm gonna muddle it with the back of a spoon. I feel like a twelve year old. Oh, it smells so good. Now I'm gonna put some gin in. Who doesn't love that sound? Get some ice in here and now we just shake. Okay, these smell amazing, they're gonna smell even better though because we're gonna put some fresh rose petals in there and top it off with some Broset. These look gorgeous. Oh, so good. Oh, that's the doorbell, let's go greet our guests. Hello ladies. - [Both Girls] Hi. - Come on in. - [Woman In Yellow Hat] No, no darling, were you born in a barn? - I was.
