Velvety Chocolate Mousse

velvety chocolate mousse from practically raw desserts by amber shea crawley

For some of you, avocado pudding is probably old news, but for others of you, this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Avocado creates a silken texture that you have to taste to believe (and I promise you won’t notice any avocado flavor). From Practically Raw Desserts * ©2013 by Amber Shea Crawley.

Cranberry Kale Salad

CranberryKaleSalad

If you want an easy way to add some greens to your holiday table, this salad is for you. My Grandpa used to make cranberry bread for Thanksgiving, and this is basically that — in salad form.  Cranberries, walnuts, orange, all mixed together … it’s like the holidays in a bowl!  This makes a moderate amount as everyday fare, so if you’d like a larger portion to serve at holiday meals, the recipe doubles or triples easily.
