Avo-miso dressing

Hey luvs,

So apparently we have earthquakes in NC and now have a hurricane heading our way. Fun times!

How is the weather in your neighborhood? I will admit the temperatures here have been wonderful, cannot wait for fall.

What is your favorite season? Did you feel the earthquake yesterday?

Last night Lori and I made another easy creamy salad dressing we wanted to share.



Pure2raw Avo-miso dressing

Time – 5 minutes

Serves 2


  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 lime zest and juice
  • 1 small zucchini (about 1/2 cup or so)
  • 1/2 tablespoon miso

Blend everything in blender or small food processor till creamy. We made zucchini pasta to go on top of our salad, so we use the leftover butts to make the dressing. No food goes to waste here ;)


YUM! once again, love our salads.

Check out our new Twin Cakes Bakery labels

This is where I have been spending most of my time.  Not all of our products have new labels, I am still working on them. Also, we got nutrition facts now on most of our goodies too! Exciting stuff, haha

We are trying to show people healthy snacks do taste amazing, just have to have an open mind and give them a try!

New Way To Snack – our new slogan

And we have been working on some new products – mostly recently cashew coconut biscotti

We asked on facebook (do you like TwinCakes?) what new flavor biscotti people would love and the sweet Gillian mentioned cashew coconut! So thank you girl, we need to send you some to sample!

Well I better get back to work. Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

Today’s self care card was a good one – POWER
