Onion rings might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of nourishing raw foods. But that’s precisely what makes this incredible raw recipe so amazing! There’s raw pizza, raw burgers, so how could we not have some raw onion rings, too? With all the raw food creativity out there, there’s no limit to what can be done with wholesome, nutritious raw foods!
Did you know that apples are part of the rose family? It’s true! you can really see the resemblance in these beautiful caramel apple tarts!
This gorgeous and healthful dessert is a great recipe for any occasion where you want to impress some guests. Just look at stunning thing! It’s almost a shame to eat it. Almost.
The delicious crust is made from dates and figs, and the caramel is dates, apples, and some tasty spices. It may be an apple in the shape of a rose, but dates are really the star player. Not only is this delicious (and did we mention gorgeous?) caramel apple tart raw and vegan, it’s also full of nutritious ingredients. This isn’t junk food!
Homemade cheese is already a pretty cool thing. But homemade cheese that is raw and vegan? And covered in pistachios? That’s something pretty special. It’s like Little House on the Prairie, but nobody goes blind and everyone lives in harmony with themselves and the world around them!
Well, that might be a bit much. But at any rate, this pistachio crusted cashew cheeseball is a super fun recipe that is sure to impress your friends and family. It’s also a great recipe for proving to those skeptical friends that anything is possible in the raw vegan lifestyle. Both rustic and progressive, this recipe is a real treat.
That’s right, a cashew cheese wheel. This is a recipe that will really turn some heads.
“Would anyone like some home-made brie?”
“But I thought you didn’t eat dairy!”
This recipe is worthwhile just for the fun of the surprise it will inspire in your friends or family. But on top of that, it’s just so darn cool.
Cheese really is a pretty special thing. There’s nothing quite like the rich, creamy, tangyness of good cheese. Nothing, that is, except this vegan cashew cheese. Often times, in vegan cooking, recipes that attempt to emulate non-vegan dishes tend to fall a little flat. That isn’t the case at all with this recipe. You can think of this cashew cheese as more of a replacement for dairy cheese than as an imitation.
While this recipe does involve quite a number of steps, it has remarkably few ingredients. The added probiotic powder helps not just to give it that cheesy aroma, but also grants it the probiotic benefit of dairy cheeses. That means your gut will love this cashew cheese as much as your mouth.
On a similar vein, I would definitely recommend including the nutritional yeast. It really helps add a subtle depth of flavor which is so nice in good cheeses.
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!
There’s nothing like ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls in the morning. The ooeyness and the gooeyness of these raw, mouth-watering confections is courtesy of three simple ingredients: bananas, dates, and cinnamon. It really simplicity itself. But don’t let the simplicity fool you. These things are rich.
The cinnamon and dates do an amazing job of recreating the taste and texture of traditional cinnamon rolls. Obviously, using bananas instead of flour makes for a different experience, but you’d be surprised just how sweet and rich these things are.
Make sure to use soft, ripe bananas. The slightly harder taste of green bananas subtracts from the overall effect, and they’re harder to roll without breaking. So wait until you start seeing some brown spots.
The biggest challenge with these simple cinnamon rolls is to keep yourself from eating them before they’re ready. It takes a while for these to dehydrate to the proper consistency. Remember: patience is a virtue.

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.
Now that strawberries are coming into season; celebrate their arrival with STRAWBERRY LIME CHEESECAKE STACKS. This dessert is not only beautiful to look at but it will nourish your body and make your taste buds sing!
Raise your hand if you remember BON BONS? Yes, the little chunks of ice cream covered in chocolate that you just popped in your mouth. There was just something about them that made you feel like royalty when you indulged in them. In fact most of us think that royalty just “lay around eating bon bons”… Was it the rich creamy ice cream? Was it the decadent chocolate that they were dipped in? Was it the fact that they were the perfect way to BLOW YOUR DIET? What ever it was, I had my fair share of them in my days past. Now that I do not indulge in any of the conventional ingredients that traditional bon bons are made of, how am I to feel like royalty again? I can regain that feeling without all the stuff I don’t want by making my recipe for BANANA BON BONS. Yes.. they are still frozen treats. YES.. they have a creamy and dreamy center.
OH YES.. they are covered in decadent chocolate! Since they have ALL of the bon bons beloved components, what is missing? Well these little guys are missing the cholesterol, dairy, refined sugar, trans-fat, preservatives, emulsifiers, and highly processed artificial ingredients that the commercially produced bon bon have. I am sorry that I had to just ruin the fantasy of the other bon bons but wait….. Here is what this recipe has–Banana, coconut oil, date syrup, cacao and shredded coconut; and they are raw vegan paleo. You can definitely feel good about those ingredients and that they conform to a healthy lifestyle! AND again, the creamy dreamy chocolate covered frozen treat that TASTES AMAZING! So even though we crave bon bons, we can ALL indulge in BANANA BON BONS and feel like royalty again! BON BON APPETIT!
These basil wrapped stuffed mushrooms are great appetizer or antipasto for raw foodies and others alike. They are raw, vegan, and gluten free yet bursting with flavor. Serve up these healthy bites at your next meal or party. Enjoy!
One of my favorite winter fruits is LEMONS!! Not only do I love the taste of lemons, I love that it is one of those ingredients that can be used in either sweet or savory dishes. Most of the time I like the savory side of life. Sometimes I like the sweet side too. With these DOUBLE LEMON BAR SORBET TARTS, I get to enjoy both!
Coconut meat appears to protect against heart disease and stroke as well. As it turns out, coconut meat’s measurable vitamins A and E, and polyphenols and phytosterols, all work together to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol, which are fats that stay in the blood and in skin tissues and high levels of which have been found a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.
“CHOCOLATE SMOTHERED COCONUT ICE CREAM” pretty much says it… except that this treat is raw, healthy and heck yeah- it tastes as amazing as it looks!
Aside from the interesting story of pineapples and appearance of this fruit, their health and medicinal benefits include their ability to improve respiratory health, cure coughs and colds, improve digestion, help you lose weight, strengthen bones, improve oral health, boost eye health, reduce inflammation, prevent cancer, increase heart health, fight off infections and parasites, improve the immune system, and increase circulation.
