Omg, she said prunes. Get over it. We’re all adults, let’s just go with the fact that prunes are delicious and ignore the obvious. Although, I was totally that kid who complained/whined/threw tantrums when my mom tried to force feed my constipated 6 year old self those every night. The Metamucil alternative was even worse though, so I ate the damn prunes.

We all like plums, right? I don’t even get why once they dry out and we change their name people are all like “omg, ew!”. 

And while we’re on it, how come raisins don’t get the same negative fate?

These are the big time life questions I have.

ps- this spinach prune smoothie uses them and it’s DELICIOUS – don’t let the color fool you!

Ricotta sage and honey stuffed prunes

Thankfully, I’ve grown up and now willingly buy containers of these little bathroom miracle workers not for function but for taste.

With a container of about 700 of them (ok not really but there are a TON in there), I got thinking they’d make for a crazy great sweet and savory appetizer perfect for that little thing called New Year’s Eve TOMORROW! (omg, it’s almost 2016).

In 10 minutes savory whipped sage infused ricotta stuffed inside prunes, topped with a perfectly honey roasted Blue Diamond almond and drizzled in honey can be ready for whatever party you’re hosting or going to in celebration.

And if you get flack from guests, just call them plums instead (as you discretely roll your eyes into the back of your head at their ridiculousness) or serve them these raw brownie bites for dessert and really get them going (yep, you guessed it – prunes are involved!)

    This post cracked me up! Poor little prunes do get such a reputation, but dang they work like magic if your plumbing is backed up and so much better tasting than metamucil. These little sweet and salty bites look so good not only for an appetizer, but even a morning snack to get things moving. ;-)
