Theme Week: Raw Desserts


Good evening loves,

How was everyone’s Sunday? Good I hope :)

I must say I can’t complain especially when this was my breakfast

nov pure2raw pics 478 We ended up eating each side individually and added more whip cream and chocolate sauce 😉

nov pure2raw pics 492Ooeey gooey smores goodness! :)  Michelle and I had one more smores left over so we decided to treat ourselves this lovely Sunday morning with a nice treat!

Followed by some warm almond milk with spices

Here are the last few sips left of it 😉

Also, we have some of this to enjoy the next two days

Our raw sauerkraut is done fermenting. We let this batch go for 3 weeks.

Bottled it up in our mason jars

Ok now time to round up our raw dessert theme week:

Our twisted pumpkin pie recipe

We called this a twisted pumpkin pie because we followed Averie’s base and idea but put our own twist on it :)

I must say creating all these delicious desserts was so much fun we plan to do another dessert week again soon :) We have so many more ideas that we want to share… we get so excited about creating new raw food recipes… :) We are dorks!

Pure2Raw Recipe: Twisted Pumpkin Pie

Crust/Crumb topping Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond meal

2 dates, pitted

Throw the whole 2 ingredients into a blender and blend till crumbly.

**now our goal with this crust was to create more crumb texture therefore we did not add any agave or more dates. If we did that it would have turned out more like a crust ( real sticky and holding together well)

Here is what our crumb topping looked like

 nov pure2raw pics 428 See our crumb is just barely holding together… more like a little crumb texture. Set topping in a bowl while you make the filling.

Pumpkin Pie Filling


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (fresh pumpkin – the more raw route or canned – whatever you have or prefer)
  • 2 dates, pitted
  • 2 tbsp irish moss **optional – we added this because it really helps lighten recipes
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch ginger
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 4 tbsp water


Place all ingredients into a blender

Here is what irish moss looks like when you are done soaking it and than pureeing it up

Puree all ingredients till fully combined (it takes a little bit due to the dates)

AND THAT IS IT!!! EASY as 1-2-3!!

Now time to plate up and enjoy. We put ours in ramekins for more individual servings.

Now we topped ours with some of our raw whip cream from the other day!! This is optional you can just put the crumb topping on.

Ok time to top with crumb topping

YUMMY!!! We ate this in about a whole 2 seconds… :)

Thanks again Averie for the inspiration and easy recipe to follow. We plan on remaking this for our family during the holidays.

Reasons why we love this recipe:

  • easy to make
  • few ingredients
  • took only 10 minutes to make
  • taste great
  • who doesn’t love a little pumpkin pie??
  • low fat, low in calories

We hope you all enjoyed our raw desserts and how excited for this week’s theme week. We will share with you all tomorrow morning plus along with some very exciting NEWS!

Hope everyone has a great evening.

Till next time,

The Twins

I just found this awesome raw recipe from nutritionals Rose Cole for an eggnog substitute. I can’t believe how good it is, and it’s sugar-free, dairy-free, and RAW! http://ow.ly/BN0C Just thought I would pass it on.
