I was searching around online and saw a lot of recipes for raw, homemade caramel. I noticed the thing most of them had in common was the use of dates and macadamia nuts. I decided to use this as my base and add in a little FitMinny flare! I came up with a dreamy, creamy, sticky “caramel” that had my husband asking for “one more bite” about twelve times…so I knew it was a hit. I will be using this to make **insert drumroll** something that is ooey-gooey-chocolatey…I can’t wait!

I love avocados! So buttery and yummy. This avocado-inspired spread is easy to make, healthy and delicious. Replace all of your “unhealthy fat” dressings with this “healthy fat” dressing and your body will appreciate it. The beauty of this dressing is that it can be spiced differently each time to achieve a different flavor. The one in this pic is a spicy, garlic spread…unlimited possibilities with this simple, clean, and healthy base.
