Recipe of the Week

Since I'm doing a talk at the end of the month on healthy, kids snacks, I've been trying out all kinds of recipes...here's one that's super quick and definitely satisfies the sweet tooth!

Lemony "Pudding"


1 cup pitted dates
1 avocado
Juice of three lemons
Agave or honey to sweeten as desired


Blend into pudding like consistency and sprinkle chopped nuts on top for a pie like feel.

I would imagine it would also taste great, if you let it set on this crust (taken from the Mothering.com website)...

Ingredients to make crust:

  • 3/4 cup pecan halves

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 tablespoons real maple syrup

To make crust:

  1. Combine oats, flour, pecans, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a food processor. Pulse until mixture becomes a coarse meal.

  2. Move ingredients to a medium-sized mixing bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together oil and maple syrup.

  3. Then add the syrup mix to the dry ingredients, and mix to form a soft dough.

  4. Place the dough in pie pan, and gently press into pan, crimping the edges.

  5. Bake for ten minutes at 375 degrees, and set aside to cool.

Sorry there's no picture this week...we ate it before I had the chance to take one!
