Cherries are a truly marvelous tree! Not only do they produce such delicious, gorgeous fruit, but they also create some of the showiest, prettiest puffy flower displays of all the plant kingdom. In cities around the world, spring begins with the unfurling of thousands of these ephemeral pink flowers, which are gone in just a matter of weeks.
Now, the cherries that produce the beautiful flowers are actually different cultivars than the ones which make the yummy fruit. But just look what happens when you combine the sweet, tart flavor of the fruit, with the serene beauty of the flowers! it makes for quite a picture.
Even if you don’t have some gorgeous cherry blossoms on hand, you can still make these delicious cherry and berries coconut cups! They will still be absolutely stunning, both on the plate and in your mouth.
The recipe does call for heating up the cherry juice in order to condense it. If you want to stick to purely raw, you can probably get away with just using 2 tablespoons of uncondensed cherry juice, but the cherry flavor won’t be as intense.
Fall is here, one of the most beautiful times of year. And with the fall come the apples. What better way to celebrate this great season than with one of the best rustic treats of all time: caramel apples!
There’s something magical about this time-honored dessert. It’s a childhood memory that really lasts. One of the great and understated aspects of this old-fashioned recipe is the use of real wooden sticks. It adds a certain element of charm, and really ties in with the season! A great way to create some warm memories with your friends and loved ones ―especially the youngsters!
I can’t think of much that looks as delicious as a plate of caramel apples!
This cheeseless cheesecake is just about the prettiest cheesecake you’ve ever seen, even if it isn’t really a cheesecake. And with berry season upon us, there’s hardly a better time to whip up this delicious piece of edible art.
The raspberries and the blueberries mingle into the most wonderfully pink hue. Somehow, this cake tastes how it looks, too. The flavors blend perfectly into a smooth, rich sweetness with just a little bit of tang. You’re going to have to let the cheesecake sit for a while before adding the sauce, so be patient! It’s the hardest part.
Tiramisu is a classic Italian coffee-flavored dessert. The name means “pick-me-up”, which I suppose is an acknowledgment of the coffee content. Or maybe it’s a reference to the inevitable improvement in mood that will accompany eating such a lovely treat. Why they call the cake ladyfingers is a whole other question…
Whatever the origin of the name, this is no light energy snack! This is some serious dessert. This coconut tiramisu is just further proof that anything worth doing, is worth doing raw and vegan. The best part is the feeling when you take a bite of the delicious coconut cream squishing out between the ladyfinger layers. Mm.
This recipe boldly makes use of a fresh young coconut, so make sure you watch some videos on how to safely crack these magnificent nuts. As a reward for your efforts, you’ll get some coconut water to enjoy later, too.
A great treat to make for date-night or other occasions when you’re really looking to impress. And of course, you don’t have to be a coffee drinker to love this decadent dessert!
Pudding. It’s impossible to imagine a word that better captures the essence of pudding than ‘pudding’. Merely uttering the word is enough to dispel all feelings of frustration or sadness, and to catapult one back to the nostalgic innocence of childhood. Pudding!
Sadly, too many of us have left pudding behind as we’ve matured into serious adults. Pudding is something seen mostly on store shelves, sealed in plastic cups, preserved with who-knows-what. It’s time to reclaim pudding for grown ups!*
This cocoa superfruit pudding has been jam-packed with delicious and nutritious foods like raw honey and organic cocoa and is ready in minutes. No one should be too busy or too healthy for pudding!
*Okay, and maybe kids, too.
These elegant raw chocolate pear tartlettes are winter festivity incarnated. Just seeing the pictures is enough to get jubilant holiday music stuck in your head. Combining cocoa, caramel, vanilla and the subtle sweetness of pear, these make for some truly delectable confections. As author Juliane Porter says of these decadent chocolate pear tartlettes “they sing holiday carols to our taste buds”.
The vanilla bean ice cream is, of course, optional, but I recommend it. These treats prove yet again that you don’t have to give up anything to gain the benefits of a raw diet. There’s nothing like a cold dollop of ice cream over a sweet and gooey tart to celebrate the winter. And really, there’s nothing like it in the summer or spring, either!
This recipe requires a bit of involvement, which makes it great for those special occasions that call for going above and beyond (Valentine’s day?). But when it’s winter time and it’s cold outside, it’s sometimes worth it to put in a bit of extra time in the kitchen. Especially if you’re making something as beautiful as these raw dark chocolate pear tartlettes. Your loved ones will surely appreciate it, and of course, chocolate has it’s benefits.
