Sour cream is a bit of a divisive sauce. You either love it or…you don’t. Well, if you do, then this recipe is for you! It’s raw, it’s vegan, it’s sour cream! A little apple cider vinegar, a little lemon, and a healthy dose of spices, it’s a flavorful dip!
A delicious, refreshing salad, tied together with some yummy raw vegan feta! The squishy tanginess of feta is a nice addition to a light lunch salad, and with almond feta you don’t have to worry about taking some poor goat’s milk!
NOTE: the almond feta should be prepared one day in advance to give it time to set.
So it’s not exactly a truffle. But it’s like a truffle! Really easy to make, these vegan and nut-free raw chocolate truffle balls are great for potlucks, parties, sharing, or to keep all to yourself! Enjoy.
Recipes don’t come any simpler than this, unless you count unpeeling a banana a recipe! For those of us who aren’t morning people, simplicity can sometimes be the best thing about a breakfast recipe. Of course, being delicious and nutritious doesn’t hurt, either!
A delicious coconut raspberry smoothie! What more is there to say? Yum yum.
Strawberry and watermelon go together like shorts and summertime. A Strawberry Watermelon Iceberg is a delicious slushy beverage that can be made with or without alcohol, depending on the context!
Sometimes it’s nice to add a little fancy cocktail to your meal, especially when the days are getting longer and the nights warmer! This ginger basil strawberry cocktail combines prosecco, brandy, and some tasty herbs and fruit for a refreshing and relaxing drink.
The tropics are nice, but for many of us they are far away. This delicious mango green smoothie allows you to take a trip to the balmy tropics from the comfort of your own temperate home.
To those who do in fact live in the tropics, don’t feel left out! You can enjoy this lovely green smoothie, too. No matter where you’re from, mangoes, bananas, spinach, and coconut are a winning combination. Or perhaps you’d enjoy a beverage with some slightly more temperate flavors.
What makes this smoothie so darn pretty? Those in the know, know! Can you guess? It’s pretty obvious once you’ve figured it out.
That’s right! It’s a little bit of beet. And a little beet goes a long way. Not only are they nutritious and delicious, but they make for a wonderful natural and healthy food coloring. Whip up a strawberry coconut cream smoothie right now, and feel the beet!

Mocha Frappuccino Smoothies seem to have become as much a part of contemporary life as text messaging and selfies. But just like text messaging and selfies, you’ve often got to sift through a lot of junk.
Also like text messages and selfies, it’s always better to make your own! This mocha frappuccino smoothie is full of nutritious wholefood ingredients and without any added sugars! It’s a frap that’s actually good for you. Trendy and healthy! That’s a double win. With a little bit of tiramisu, you’ll never have to leave your house again!
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.
It’s always guac-o-clock somewhere!
Sure, you could make guacamole with an avocado and a bit of tomato and salt. You could. But you wouldn’t, because you are a dynamic, exciting, and adventurous soul gleefully exploring the potential of the universe! What you need is Super Guacamole! And here it is.
Unlike the super versions of other types of food, super guacamole is still pretty quick and easy to make. But that little bit of extra effort sure goes a long way to take you from guacameh to guacamazing. The word is pretty fun, too.
What really dials up the volume on this guacamole is the corn and the cumin. I’ve never had corn in my guac, which is silly because corn is perfect for guac! Sweet with a little bit of texture. Corn and avocado, what a neat thing.
Obviously, a great way to enjoy super guacamole is on super tacos. And then you can have choco tacos for dessert to complete your balanced taco meal. Also great as a dip for veggies!
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.
Since ancient times, pomegranates have been used in Middle Eastern and Eastern European cuisine. These strange and wonderful fruit are now a global sensation, and this pomegranate punch smoothie is an awesome way to enjoy this ancient fruit.
The extra bit of effort it takes to get those delicious little seed pods out (and there are hundreds of them in there!) is worth it, and just makes this odd fruit even more rewarding.
