Vanilla has a bit of a reputation. And not a very exciting one.
We say that’s unfair! Vanilla can be just as thrilling as those other spices. Vanilla can get down, too! And to prove it, here’s a sensuous dessert in which vanilla isn’t just providing the ambiance: vanilla is front and center! These perfect little squares are all about vanilla.
How you choose to use with them is up to you. But I bet they’d make for an awesome date-night snack! Move over chocolate, it’s vanilla’s turn to shine!
Playing a supporting role is another delicious thing: coconut! Coconut and vanilla, what could be better?
You know what they say about apples! This gluten free no bake apple pie isn’t just excellent in the taste department, it offers all kinds of wonderful health benefits!
According to Ayurvedic expert Laura Plumb, lovely apples are good for your blood, skin and eyes. An they’re anti-inflammatory. They’re also great for helping control blood sugar, and appreciably full of fiber. This apple pie may be a dessert, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be super healthful!
Yes, apples have a special place in our hearts. They’re symbolic of all that is good and worthy! While doctors may be repelled by them, teachers seem to find them irresistible. Just imagine how teachers might feel about this raw apple pie!
What better way to start the day than spiced carrot and apple breakfast bars! It’s like a cookie, but it’s a nutritious breakfast! With some fresh orange juice or a killer smoothie, you’ll be in real fine shape.
This is a particularly good breakfast for those of us who aren’t really morning people. Save yourself the hassle of having to engage in early morning thinking, and have these breakfast bars ready for you as soon as you wrench yourself out of bed!
Or, if you are a morning person, these breakfast bars make for an awesomely portable snack to take with you on your early morning jog! Really, there’s no way to lose!
If you’re into juicing, you can save up your carrot pulp to make these tasty breakfast bars. Otherwise, you can use shredded carrots. Either way, you’ll be on your way to a wonderful day!
There’s nothing as refreshing as a fresh, crispy veggie wrap. With such a diversity of ingredients, these rainbow wraps are light and yummy, but also super nutritious and healthful.
You can make any sorts of substitutions you like with this highly flexible recipe. Fill your wraps with whatever veggies you’ve got handy. The currants make a particularly nice sweet and tart addition, but you can substitute for raisins or even other dried fruits if you choose.
These wraps are a bit different than most, in that the veggies take the form of a kind of cous cous. The texture of raw veggie cous cous is pretty unique, and is well suited to wraps (or rolls). The tahini helps to tie the “cous cous” together and adds that peculiar sesame flavor the way only tahini can. And then it all gets laid onto a bed of creamy avocado and your favorite deep greens. Mm.
An awesome finger food to invigorate yourself on a warm summer day!
There’s nothing as simple and wholesome as apple sauce. We all loved it as kids, yet we seem so rarely to take advantage of it as adults. Maybe it’s time to feed that inner child!
Lots of people think you have to cook apples to make a delicious sauce. Not so! With the magic of a food processor, you can whip of a batch of soft, creamy and delicious apple sauce in less time and with less effort than by cooking. And you get to enjoy all the nutritional benefits of raw, natural apples!
This recipe is a great way to use up bruised or aging apples. Some of the more progressively-minded grocery stores out there also sell those $1 bags of imperfect produce. This recipe is perfect for that! Who could say no to a whole pot of natural, fresh apple sauce for just $1?
I’ve never been a coffee drinker, but there’s just something about coffee flavored sweets. I don’t know what it is, since I’ve never liked actual coffee. But it’s impossible not to like these tiramisu brownies.
These things aren’t your average brownie, and they certainly aren’t your average tiramisu. Somehow they’re the best of both worlds. Instead of using ladyfingers as is traditional with this delectable Italian dessert, our chef here has appropriately gone for a layer of coffee flavored vanilla cake.
The fact that these tiramisu brownies have coffee flavored vanilla cake as a layer says pretty much all that needs to be said. Decadent doesn’t seem to do it justice. This the cutting edge of dessert goodness. Part brownie, part tiramisu, you’ll want them all the time.
Alright, so this cake is raw, vegan, and double chocolate. But what if I told you it was also low in fat?
This isn’t some marketing gimmick and there’s no hydrogenated weirdness. This double chocolate layer cake is actually just made from oats, fruit and cacao. Can you believe it? This is definitely not the cake I would imagine if someone had told me to envision a layer cake made of oats and fruit. Not before now, anyways.
Lots of really amazing raw vegan cakes and confections rely on the magical creaminess of cashews, and that’s totally awesome. But those nuts are pretty fatty, which is great if you’re looking for a source of essential fatty acids. But sometimes you wanna have a big piece of double chocolate layer cake without feeling all heavy and lethargic (talk about having your cake and eating it!).
That’s where this comes in! All the richness and creaminess you need provided by figs, raisins and oats. Who knew that such a thing was possible?
What a world we live in! Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Bars without cheese or milk. But there’s definitely nothing lacking in these frosty confections!
Strawberries and bananas always seem to make an appearance in delicious vegan nice creams. But this isn’t just ice cream, this is ice cream cake! The ultimate birthday dessert. But it also works for half-birthdays, pet’s birthdays, anniversaries and days of the week.
The maple syrup is an awesome addition. It’s listed as optional, but I would definitely say it’s recommended. Nothing beats that deep dark sweetness of genuine maple syrup! It sure goes well with this Strawberry Cheesecake!
Dates are incredible. There’s so much natural sweetness in these things it’s almost unfair. These Chocolate Coconut Date Balls are a great variation on the classic simple treat.
The tahini is a nice addition in this recipe, adding the slightest bit of unexpected flavor in with the standard chocolate/coconut combination. Dates really provide all the sweetness you could ever need. Chocolate coconut date balls are a great snack to take out and about. Just throw some into a jar or container when you’re heading out for a day of hiking or beach lounging or even a roadtrip.
They’re so dense and jam-packed with high-energy foods, they’re kind of like energy bars except they taste good without added sugar! The only trouble with these things is not eating all of them at once.
Life is an art, it’s all about contrast. Peaks need valleys, darkness needs light, and sweet strawberries need spicy, peppery arugula. It’s the differences that really make the best of things stand out.
There’s no simpler way to enjoy the beauty of life’s contrasts than by making up a bowl of this delicious yummy strawberry arugula salad!
The heart of this recipe is, of course, in the dressing, and you can apply this dressing to any other combination of greens and veggies. This variation has the advantage of being minimalist and simple, highlighting the peppery sweetness of strawberry and arugula. The balsamic vinaigrette it quite sweet and will go well with pretty much any type of salad. Pomegranates and/or nuts would be a fun variation.
Another great benefit of this recipe is that it provides you with the chance to say “arugula” a bunch. Definitely worth doing. If you’re sharing the salad with a friend or partner, this benefit is increased significantly.
Usually, cous cous is made of seminola. And usually you don’t find it rolled up in cucumber. That makes this dish somewhat unusual, and that’s partly what makes it so great. Sometimes you come across ideas you can’t believe you hadn’t thought of. For ideas like these cauliflower cous cous cucumber rolls, we can all just be glad that someone came up with it.
In this case, the cous cous is made not from wheat but from cauliflower. The little cauliflower crumbles actually do a pretty good job of imitating traditional cous cous, but with the added benefits of keeping these cucumber rolls raw and gluten-free!
These refreshing morsels make a great appetizer or snack if you’re entertaining. Easy to make, easy to enjoy, and light on the stomach. Shared between just a couple people, they also make for an awesome light lunch.
The combination of raisins, tahini, and chili makes for a really neat texture and flavoring. Mildly sweet, a little spicy, and a little creamy, these cucumber rolls manage to pack a lot of flavor while keeping it mild. Tahini really has a unique capacity for tying things together, and is great generally if you need to avoid using peanut butter.
Sometimes, the most delicious things are the simplest. And there’s hardly anything more delicious than dates and cinnamon. Together they combine to make this super hyper-tasty raw caramel. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
This killer recipe is ready in just 10 minutes, and is an awesome addition to any brunch or snacking situation. Kids will love the caramelly sweetness that needs no added sugar, making for a great after-school snack. And really, so will adults. You don’t need an excuse for this awesome snack! Fruit is good for you!
Now once you’ve got your caramel made up, there are at least two ways to go about eating it. One method is to take your sliced fruit, and just dunk it in there. That’s one way. Alternatively, you can spread your fruit out on a plate and drizzle the caramel over it. Also a good choice. There’s really no wrong way.
Feel free too to change up the fruit. No reason why bananas or pears can’t enjoy a nice coating of raw caramel!
Thai food is awesome. Crisp, fresh, with a little bit of tang and sweetness, and always so colorful! With this refreshing take on an old favorite, you get all the characteristic taste of a great pad thai, all with wholesome raw ingredients!
The kelp noodles are probably the most intriguing aspect of this pad thai. Kelp is an awesome food, packing a broad spectrum of micronutrients like sodium, potassium and iodine which helps keep your thyroid in good order. It also contains all 9 essential amino acids, and all this in a low-calorie package.
Add to the kelp some tamari, tahini, ginger and miso, and you’re in for an exotic tasting treat. There is a fair amount of ingredients in here, but it’s all awesome stuff and it really isn’t too much work to get it all together. And the gorgeous medley of colors and flavors that you’ll be rewarded with makes the time spent chopping more than worth it. Kelp Noodle Pad Thai is a fantastic dish when you’re looking for a taste a little out of the ordinary!
