This scrumptious vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free smoothie really does taste like a delectable “maple pecan pie in a glass”. Those of you with nut allergies – my profound apologies. There is just no nutty equivalent! In the spirit of replicating my perfect bite of pecan pie I only used 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to keep the sugar content down. I found this was just enough to bring out the natural sweetness in the bananas and take the edge off the pecans. But feel free to sweeten the deal. The pecan milk adds that hint of a nutty pastry flavor, and the cinnamon and vanilla perfect the blend. This smoothie does every creamy bite of mum’s pecan pie justice, and hits the “B spot” on days you are not inclined to bake. This smoothie is absolutely scrumptious. It is like a refreshing Summer chilled dessert in a glass. This is rich! But, I don’t think I will be needing to eat humble pie. YUMMO!

This is a great recipe for Fall. Tahini and maple syrup are a very unlikely, but absolutely heavenly, combination. I know maple syrup isn't technically raw, but it really adds to the flavor. I also feel like maple syrup is one of those non-raw ingredients (like nutritional yeast) that is accepted in raw recipes. The caramel sauce looks and tastes like a slightly nutty caramel, perfect for dipping apples in.

I wanted to try out the young coconut wrappers I see in Matthew Kenney's new book, but didn't want to put a savory cashew filling inside. I mixed up this fudge spread (would be great with a little chopped hazenuts) and ended up with a sweet and salty thing going.

I made the No-Bake Cookie recipe by MammaCassa from this site for lunch today. As I'm munching, I thought if I powdered the oat groats, I would end up with a batter. Yummy! Dehydrate until top is crisp and you have a warm, soft brownie. Plunk a scoop of raw vanilla ice cream on top! Or eat it right out of the bowl! Go ahead!
