Halloween is candy corn season. It can be a challenging time of year if clean eating is a priority in your house like it is in ours. Between attending costume parties and the inevitable Halloween sugar roller coaster, we are destined to encounter that all too familiar treat overload. I always vow not to purchase candy, but those colorfully wrapped packages filled with artificial ingredients inevitably find their way into our home. They’re smuggled in backpacks from school parties, they come from scouting events, and they come by the pillowcase-full on Halloween.
If you are trying not to contribute to the sugar overload this year, and are looking to serve a delightful, delicately sweetened treat, that screams, “Halloween!” then look to this recipe from 21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese and her brother, chef Bobby Calabrese. In this episode of FIXATE Autumn and Bobby whip up a Candy Corn Parfait that’s candy for the eyes and is a perfect snack for hungry mermaids and pirates. It’s great for entertaining too, make a batch ahead of time to keep chilled in the fridge.
Did you know that you can make an amazing whipped topping from coconut cream? Because making any whipped cream can be tricky, in this episode Bobby gives us a step by step walkthrough of the proper technique to achieve perfect peaks using nothing more than coconut cream. So even if you are a whipped cream newbie, you’ll know exactly what to do. The end result is a fluffy, whipped topping that is vegan, healthy, and delicious.
