Pumpkin Raspberry Parfait – Raw Style

Thought why not – and it turned out yummy. With the left over Pumpkin I made a smoothie with hemp milk, banana, cinnamon, dates and L.O.V.E. and was it yummy!!

Raw Pumpkin is quite nutritionally dense – making healthy eating easy. Pumpkin in it’s raw form is loaded with Vitamin A and potassium.

You (or your guests)won’t know that the pumpkin Raspberry Parfait is a raw desert – that’s the best part!!

Have a healthy and safe Thanksgiving weekend to my American friends and here’s a link to some raw Thanksgiving recipes from the Canadian side!

Pumpkin Puree

– 1 small to medium size Pumpkin – insides scraped out, seeds could be washed and dried and baked in oven or dehydrator if wanted for yummy snack)

Pumpkin will need to be cut up into small pieces and the outer skin taken off.

– 1 tsp Cinnamon

– 1 tsp Nutmeg or Pumpkin Pie Spice

– 1 tsp Vanilla

– pinch Himalayan Salt

– 1/4 – 1/2 cup Water

– 4 tbsp Agave (or other natural sweetner – adjust to taste)

Throw all ingredients into Vitamix or Blender and slowly add water until desired consistency – you want it kind of thick not too runny, it may take scraping down the sides a few times and a little bit to get fairly smooth

Raspberry Puree

– small package fresh Raspberries

– 1/2 in grated Ginger

– 2 tbsp Agave (or other sweetener)

Cashew Whip

– 1 cup Cashews

– 1 tsp Vanilla

– 2 tbsp Agave (or other natural sweetener)

– 4- 6 ice cubes

– 1/4 – 1/2 cup Water

Throw all ingredients in Vitamix or Blender except the water, slowly add the water until desired consistency is achieved – you don’t want this too thick or too thin.

Get a parfait or wine glass and put in layers starting with the Pumpkin puree, then the Raspberry Puree, Cashew Whip, chopped Walnuts and repeat.

Eat and Enjoy!!

About Jodi Burke (2 Articles)
Jodi Burke has always loved being in the kitchen, creating and sharing dishes, and finding healthier ways of eating. A couple years ago, she was introduced to a complete raw, 'live' food dinner one night and couldn't believe how fantastic the food tasted--she had already been intrigued by the raw foods lifestyle, but didn't expect it to taste so good! The dinner inspired Jodi to take her cooking up to the next level by becoming a Raw Foods Chef. She's perfected some fantastic recipes (and also found some that weren't worth recording), and she's sharing what she's learned with you! She believes that eating more whole foods, plant based foods and superfoods should be easy, nutritious, and simple, and yet so tasty that anyone can add more healthy dishes to their way of eating.
