View Full Version : Need recipes for teen sleepover

I'm having my SAD best friend over for a girls' movie night and need some recipes. I'm looking for delicious, easy stuff I can make ahead! I don't have a dehydrator or any carob :(

Date-nut balls are always a hit!
Equal amounts of dates and nuts, put in the food processor, process until dough-y, roll into little balls! Yum! You could also add dried coconut, or roll them in the coconut. Mmm!

RP's brownies (if you can't get carob and if you're not objected to it, you can get some organic cocoa)
Ice cream (there are tons of recipes here in the recipe section)
Tacos - get some lettuce leaves and stuff with guac, make a nut meat by chopping walnuts and/or almonds in the food processor and mixing in a bowl by hand with cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne for spice if desired and then make a salsa or simply chop tomatoes and onions up and put that on top of the filling. You can also make a nut cheeze sauce by blending cashews, a little red (or other color besides green) bell pepper, a little salt, and water to desired consistency.
RP's chocolate mousse (recipe here in the recipe section)
zucchini pasta in sauce (you can spruce the sauce up by adding chopped bell peppers and onions and mushrooms if you like 'em)

RAW Banana Splits! Bananas; Vanila, Strawberry, Chocolate Ice Creams and Chocolate Sauce and Whipped Cream ah,some strawberry sauce; recipes all here: Joz
Alissa's lemon pudding is really great as pudding or as pie, only its green, not yellow. If you make it into pudding put some into a pudding dish, add fresh berries and top with more pudding. Its delish.
Smoothies: everyone loves them, raw or not
guacamole with cucumber discs, zucchini, bell peppers, and broccoli pieces
I second the date nut balls.
Or make a pretty fruit tray, be creative and create shapes with melons :confused:

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! The tacos where a huge hit! My cinnamon date nut balls didn't go over so well for some reason, though... :confused: I think they work better if you don't soak the nuts first. Oh well, live and learn!

Glad the tacos were a hit. What did the grrls have to say about them?

Well, I didn't use the fake meat (thought it might be a bit much!) and we made our own salsa and guac which no one had done before and rolled it on lettuce leaves. They said homemade salsa was amazing (it tastes so much better then the canned stuff)! Then since we were up all night we ate the salsa as a soup for brunch (kind of like a peppery gaspacho). She liked it so well, she suggested eating the guac that way too!
