Better than Candy Corn

I was a huge candy corn fan growing up, and even up until a few years ago when I decided to cut sugar out of my diet. But I still have fond memories of gobbling down bags-full every October.

Now, I don’t eat candy corn (mostly because it doesn’t taste good to me anymore), but also because it’s full of artificial coloring and refined sugar.

*This* version of candy corn is so much better. It’s dye-free, all natural, refined sugar free. It’s made from PLANTS!

Including the most wonderful, crazy good, magical substance EVER… Cashew cream! Ultra creamy, rich and soft. It’s my FAVORITE thing on the planet.

THRILLER

I don’t know about you, but I get THRILLS from making desserts out of vegetables and unconventional ingredients. I have snuck in avocado, zucchini and SPINACH in there and my kids are none the wiser!

It makes me giddy to see them feasting away on foods they normally wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole, lol. And there’s veggies hidden away in this cheesecake, too. And you can’t tell! 😀

Taste the Rainbow

So can you guess what it’s made of? CARROTS. Yes, yummy baby carrots. Steamed and blended in with the other ingredients, all that’s left is their vibrant color and mild sweetness.

And the yellow is a pinch of turmeric. Such a bright little spice that not only creates gorgeous hues, it’s also anti-inflammatory. Score.
