Happy Rawloween!!!

Dont you love to see the little kiddies in their costumes...I love it! Is too bad that such a happy day for the kids result in tons of process sugar rushes and dentists nightmares. Unfortunately unless you live in a very small community you cant feed them home made treats. Well, at least I made some goodies for the neighbors and my family:

This Week was a kids dream come true for me! For the first time ever! I carved a pumpkin! It was so much fun! my sisters in law, my little nephew, my hubby and me did these pieces of it out!

The good thing I utilized the pumpkin to its maximum:

1) I took all the seeds from the guts and put them in the dehydrator; they have that white shell but once dehydrated you can chew like "spitz" but without the extra added sodium and preservative :)

2) I made Pumpkin Pie from Heather Pace recipe. Everyone Loved it, Although I have to admit that I found the crust a little heavy on my tummy; I think partly because I was eating really light and all the sudden I got too many treats, that although raw and good for you; these still need to be eaten in moderation ;)

Other kids treats that made
a home run hit in our household were:

Chocolate Mint Mousse:
Very easy to make,
just blend 1 avocado;
1/4 cup of Cocoa Powder;
1/4 Cup of Agave Nectar and
1/4 TSP of peppermint extract.

Chocolate Brownie Fudge Cookies: I got this recipe from Penni in Raw Food Rehab! I had tons of fun making different shapes.

1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1 1/4 cups almond butter (or other nut butter)
1 cup raw cacao powder (substitute carob if desired)
1/3 cup raw honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pulse the dates in a food processor until well shopped. Add the almond butter, cacao or carob powder, honey and vanilla extract, processing until smooth. Place this mixture on a teflex dehydrator sheet and cover with a second sheet. You can use parchment paper or heavy duty plastic wrap as well. Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough as though you were rolling out cookie dough, leaving the dough about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick. Peel away the top sheet and cut the brownie into desire shapes.

Have a Happy Rawloween!

  1. Hey girl!

    Yes, you can freeze the leftover pie. The filling should be completely smooth - the irish moss should be blended until smooth - it will make a difference whether or not you're using a high speed blender.
