Halloweegan Ghostly Lemon Mousse Tart!
I promised there would be a few Halloweegan posts during this year's MoFo and I'm keeping my word! May I interest you in a Ghostly Lemon Mousse Tart?
This tart is actually supposed to be a Raspberry Lemon Mousse Tart, and it is a recipe created by the one and only Ms. Amber Shea Crawley! I needed to make something with whipped cream ghosts, so I swapped the berries for the spookies. The recipe is from Amber's cookbook Practically Raw, but lucky for you, Amber shared the recipe online! There are a few cookbook recipes that I want to make during Vegan MoFo, but I will only use recipes that are available online for all to enjoy, even if you don't have a particular cookbook. The ghosts are made with coconut whipped cream and they have strawberry jam eyes and mouths, piped on with a little ziploc bag. I made some Ghostly Pudding Pies for MoFo 2008, but those only had one lonely ghost on top. This is a gang of ghosts!
Your pants. We shall scare them off you.
How did the tart taste? Heavenly! I am still getting used to non-baked "crusts", but the filling is absolutely heavenly! See what I did there? Heavenly? Ghosts? Boo? Never mind. The lemon mousse is amazing, and it's not full of junky junk! It's made with cashews, coconut water, agave, lemon juice, coconut oil - even a little turmeric! Even Mr. Wing-It who prefers more traditional (non-raw) desserts raved about it. Check out the recipe and go make some!
Looks like they're riding a delicious lemony jet ski! Ha!
Today's TV show find on Netflix Watch Instantly is Hell on Wheels. Do you watch it? This was another one that I was reluctant to watch, but now I am SO into it! It's dirty, gritty, bloody, and even funny sometimes. It's a western show set in 1865, but it's not your typical western, so even if you're not into that kind of stuff don't write it off! It moves very slowly and not much seems to happen during most shows, but somehow it manages to keep me completely hooked.
And now I will leave you with an awkward picture of Curly. Happy weekend!
