Dip Ingredients:
2 cups peeled, cored, and diced organic apples
1 1/2 teaspoon organic fresh lemon juice
2 1/2 teaspoons organic brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons organic apricot preserves
1/4 teaspoon organic cinnamon

5 (6-inch) organic flour tortillas
2 tablespoons organic butter or vegan substitute, melted
1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons organic brown sugar

Directions:
1.Combine all the dip ingredients in a bowl, then cover with foil and bake in oven until soft at 350 or 400 degrees. Check on them repeatedly to make sure the apples don’t get mushy. You can leave the foil off for a few minutes to toast the top.

2. Once the apples are finished cooking you can ether serve them warm or put the apples in the fridge to chill.

3.Brush the tortillas with butter, then cut them into wedges.

4.Arrange the wedges on a greased baking sheet, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and bake at 350º F until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let them cool before serving.

You can add Different fruit preserves or some fresh sage or cloves to switch up the taste, even pecans! This is a simple, delicious and healthy alternative to desert dips. When you are already pigged out and over stuffed it is sometimes nice to add something healthy to the mix.

Berry Mice to Eat You

Berry Mice to Eat You

Berry Mice to Eat You

 

 

Seriously how cute is this. What a great way to keep your children interested in heating healthy?! It is an even better way to spruce up any old cheese plate for a party. Keep this recipe in mind for Halloween parties or even children’s birthday parties. You can always dip the mice in a fruit dip or chocolate dip.

1 Package of fresh organic strawberries
1 Handful organic almond slivers
1 Organic string cheese
1 Handful of mini carob, peanut butter or chocolate chips
Spoonful of organic peanut butter
Wedges of your favorite cheese

1. Wash all strawberries thoroughly.
2. Slice the strawberry so that it can lay flat on the plate.
3. Take your mini chocolate, carob or peanut butter chip into the front of the strawberry to make a nose. Use some peanut butter to help it stick if necessary.
4. Use stick 2 more chips above the nose to make eyes. You can also add tiny dots of peanut butter to the eyes or just use peanut butter instead. (you can substitute the pb with cream cheese, fluff, or fruit dip if anyone has allergies or just doesn’t like pb.)
4. Stick 2 almond slivers above the eyes to make ears.
5. Make a whole in the back of the strawberry to add the tail. Pictured above they have used licorice but I thinks string cheese is a much better option and a little more fun too.
6. Cut your cheeses into small wedges and place on the plate with your Mice. You can add other fruit when serving as well like grapes and bananas.

Homemade Nutella

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup raw organic whole hazelnuts
1 1/2 cups organic whole milk
3/4 cup organic nonfat powered milk
1 Tbsp. mild-flavored organic honey
pinch organic sea salt
1 heaping cup chopped organic bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, or chips
1 scant cup chopped organic milk chocolate, or chips

Directions:
1. On a rimmed baking sheet, toast the nuts in a 400ºF for 10 minutes, or their skins have begun to pop.

2.Transfer to a towel and gather into a bundle.  Then rub together to remove as much of their skins as possible.

3. While the nuts are still warm, put them in the food processor.  Blend them until they are finely ground to look pasty and thick, almost like natural peanut butter.

4. In the meantime warm the milk, powdered milk, honey and salt in a small saucepan just until the mixture starts to boil. Then remove from the heat.

5. Set a glass or stainless steel bowl over a pan of simmering water (or in the microwave) with the chocolates in it. 

6. Melt the chocolates, stirring occasionally until smooth.

7.  Add the melted chocolate to the ground nuts and continue to process the mixture, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

8. Add the warm milk mixture and process until everything is well blended and as smooth as you can get it. Makes about 2 cups.

squeeze juice of only 1 half of each over avocados — careful not to drop any seeds into your bowl or use too much juice you can add more later. Add onion, tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic, and cilantro into bowl. Mix vigorously with wooden spoon. Add cumin, red pepper flakes, chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. If you prefer a more whipped guacamole, try using a hand mixer to whip some of the avocados before adding all of the otheringredients. Scoop with chips and enjoy!
