simple and sweet treat for halloween
Happy Halloween! These are cute and tasty, great for parties!
I was in the middle of making carrot cake when I was overcome with the desire to create a pineapple cake instead. So, this is essentially carrot cake icing with a bunch of stuff added. It was so easy, and it turned out wonderful! A great tropical breakfast or dessert! Very sweet!
These treats would remind anyone of honey roasted peanut butter. When you refrigerate dates, part of the outside hardens into a crunchy crystal that mimics that candy flavor. And the Himalayan salt gives it a honey roasted peanut. It’s also really important that you use almond butter made from soaked (the equivalent of sprouted) almonds, dehydrated and ground into a crumbly, flour-like butter. You can home-make the almond butter or you can buy it from a few specialty brands. Just be sure not to add any oil, as this will make them heavy. The specialness of these is that they are light. If you can find more exotic dates such as Halawi or honey dates, use those instead. They are softer and when labeled raw, are much more delicate than Medjools.
Feel free to use figs instead of dates, as I find myself eating them with figs just as often as dates! The crunchy seeds and jelly give it a peanut-butter-and jelly taste.
A serving is about 3 stuffed dates.
A smoothie in green I call Maca Machine! This smoothie contains a powerhouse of nutrients and is extremely high in potassium – vital to electrolyte function. Maca has been used for hormonal balance, sexual stamina, mental health, clarity and wellness, etc. I have been using it for mental health and seen wonderous results. This smoothie is sweet, filling, nutritious and will GET YOU GOING! Energy to the extreme! This is not a power smoothie, this is a super-cala-raw-alicious-ex-pe-ala-docious smoothie!!! Be daring, get your MACA on!
