I made apple-butternut squash soup for the Raw Food Potluck on Sat. I couldn't resist to bring along the Raw Snowman dessert. Super quick and easy to make. Tough to cut him up, though everyone enjoyed eating him!!
1 1/2 cup cashews
juice of 1 lemon (I ran out so used some lime)
7 dates (pitted)
unsweetened coconut flakes
Eyes - pumpkin seeds
Nose - goji berry
Mouth - chia seeds
Buttons - raisins
Arms - grape stems
Blend dry cashews until like flour. Set aside in a bowl. Blend dates, juice and a few sprinkles of coconut flakes (prevents sticking). Mix wet with dry with a spoon to make a dough. Make 3 balls, roll in coconut flakes, build snowman! Source: http://rawfoodswitch.com
