  1. No doubt ‘healthy’, and delicious. Rasberries and chocolate, a combination made in heaven, and crunchy oats – wonderful. I’m intrigued to try the mousse, if I can find a pumpkin. Usually we see them here only around Halloween. Maybe another squash will do?

          1. No. Only on summer, but pumpkins can be store all year around! And believe me – put it on the highest shelf or in the corner it will be as just harvest. And the best part – vitamines are the same or even more than at harvest. 🙂
