Durian is probably one of the weirdest fruits that ever fruited. They taste sort of like a mix of onion, cucumber, watermelon, and maybe some garlic, and just a pinch of old books. They actually taste really great. They’re just… weird.

Do these look familiar? They might remind you of a certain popular hazelnut chocolate treat you tend to see a lot around this time of year. But these ones are so much better! Mulberries, dates, carob, and hazelnuts! That’s all you need for a divinely delicious Holiday treat that you can easily share with friends and family!
Dates and carob make for a wonderful raw dessert treat. With these hazelnut carob truffles, you don’t have to worry about any GMO soy, refined sugars, dairy, or gluten. Simple nutritious foods provide all the yummy sweetness you could ask for!
Raw food is delicious, flavorful, and healthy. Even when it’s pie! It’s almost unfair.
You’ve probably had apple pies, and you’ve probably had pecan pies, but you may never have had an apple pecan pie like this before. The pecans actually serve as a basis for the crust in this tasty, simple to make apple pie. This recipe is great for when you don’t have a fully-stocked kitchen to work with: all you need is a food processor or a blender, and a pie pan or casserole dish. Even you college students out there can make this one!
The mixture of green and red apples is an interesting touch that provides for a subtle mixing of slightly different flavors in the pie filling. Dates and figs, of course, make up a good portion of the ooey-gooeyness of this delicious raw dessert.
What’s the difference between a fruit and a vegetable? Some say that a fruit contains seeds. But then peppers, cucumbers and squash are fruit… Does that mean they aren’t vegetables? What is a vegetable, anyways? Are fruits just a type of vegetable?
Whatever the answers to those questions, you can be sure that these tacos are full of fruits and vegetables. And a whole lot more than just kale and pineapple! The taco shells are jicamas! And inside the tacos you’ll find zucchini, tomatoes onion and strawberries. These definitely aren’t your average tacos. They are, in fact, much much better.
But no tacos would be complete without a zesty sauce! These ones come with their own special lime and cilantro dressing. A super fun recipe, and a way to enjoy raw vegan tacos that are gluten free!
For dessert… more tacos?
Lots of people think that sushi is all about fish. I wonder sometimes if those people have ever actually been to a sushi restaurant: there’s all kinds of rolls and lots of them are meat-free. But while many of the ingredients in your typical sushi are raw, it’s always got rice in it. And that’s a bit of a bummer.
But sushi is really fun to make, too! And thanks again to the magic shape-shifting powers of zucchini, you can make your own tasty yummy sushi rolls with all the stuff you love and none of it that you don’t.
Instead of soy sauce, this recipe goes with a tasty ginger mango sauce. Mango and ginger! Yum.
It takes a bit of practice to get the rolling action down, but the learning experience itself is fun! Sushi is a great meal to make with friends.
Pitaya is a cool exotic fruit! And like all other fruits, it belongs in smoothies.
This smoothie is actually a bit more than a regular smoothie. This is a pitaya parfait! The term ‘parfait’ comes from the French word for perfect, and that’s exactly what this raw vegan layered fruit medley is!
This recipe does call for some slightly off-the-beaten path ingredients. The pitaya comes in the form of Pitaya Plus, though I’m sure you can substitute fresh pitaya if you’re so inclined. Lucuma powder is a low-glycemic sweetener, which you could also substitute for a more common alternative if you feel the need.
Pitaya is also known as dragon fruit. This parfait might look super adorable and pretty, but this thing is packed with the superlative power of these mythic beings! You will feel as limber as a lizard and as daring as a drake with all the goodness in this pitaya parfait!
This smoothie may be the smoothie to end all smoothies, but that’s not why it’s called the Omega Smoothie! With delicious and nutritious chia and hemp seeds, this divine concoction will provide you with all sorts of essential fatty acids, not to mention antioxidants, fiber, protein, and a wide variety of nutrients and minerals. And you’ll need all these healthful nutrients as we head into the summer months of long days and fun nights.
Chia is an awesome little seed. They say they make good pets. I’m not so sure about that, but they do add a lovely gel-like thickness to recipes. Great in smoothies, these little things absorb liquid super fast and will expand to several times their original size. As a source of Omega-3s, they’ve got the advantage over flax seeds of not having to be ground up to be digested.
The rest of the Omega Smoothie ingredients need no introduction! Bananas are the all-stars of the smoothie world, and anything with fresh coconut water is bound to be energizing and refreshing. The dates add a bit of sweetness the way only dates can, and cinnamon and nutmeg round it all off with a subtle hint of spice.
The Omega Smoothie makes for a fine day at the beach. Or, if you don’t have a beach near you, a great way to visualize yourself on one anyways!
