We love taking part in Marlie Centawer's Smoothie Sundays! This particular creation can be made high raw with cooked pureed pumpkin OR do like we do and keep the pumpkin puree raw by simply blending up the flesh of sweet pie pumpkin in your blender until smooth. Hemp mylk makes a great base for this smoothie with its thick creamy texture, earthy flavor, and high nutrient content. Fresh banana and a few soaked dates help to thicken and sweeten things up and the spices add that spicy pumpkin pie flavor we all love this time of year.
So easy and delicious! A chocolate raspberry tart that you can easily adapt by using your favorite fresh seasonal fruit in place of raspberries. Fresh juicy fruit, a simple chocolate date/nut crust, and a generous drizzling of raw chocolate sauce; who can resist!
A whipped and creamy eggless mixture of macadamia nuts, cashews, zucchini and spices form the perfect appetizer when placed on top of thinly sliced yellow crookneck squash.

Don't forget to garnish with a sprinkle of spanish paprika. Yum!

If you are a cultured raw foodie than you've probably tried at least one version of a raw onion bread over the years. This version by Heather Pace is basic and easy to make but does not short you on flavor! If you are not a fan of onion she recommends using only 1 onion and subbing some extra zucchini. Use this bread as an open faced sandwich with avocado, tomato, hummus spread and sprouts or dip in a bowl of raw soup for a quick lunch or dinner!
Little is as comforting this time of year than a warm cup of spicy hot cocoa. In this heart-warming, chocolate-tingle inducing recipe by Golubka you will find instructions for warming your creation on the stove top. If you want a truly raw hot chocolate simply take off the burner before it gets too hot. A simple finger test will allow you to gauge how hot it gets. Golubka uses fresh nut milk, melted cocoa butter and truly raw cocoa powder to create a smooth, rich, decadent hot cocoa infused with real vanilla bean and fresh spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. Soothing, nourishing bliss in a cup!
