You can either buy nut butter from the store, or you can make your own! Simply toss a couple of handfulls of almonds into your food processor, and process until the nuts release their oils and break down into a smooth consistency. You can speed the process up by heating the nuts in an oven for up to 10 minutes, but it isn’t necessary.
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.

Chocolate orange is one of history’s great combinations. Like oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, Brad and Angelina, or Batman and Robin. Sure you can have them separately and they’re perfectly good. But when you put them together, oh boy, you really bump it up a notch.
Kicking the flavor combination up yet another notch is a healthy dose of ginger. Ginger is one of the few flavors that rivals chocolate orange, so any recipe that manages to balance all three of these ambrosial flavors is a guaranteed winner.

Chocolate pudding! When was the last time you had chocolate pudding? As a kid, there was nothing like it. A little bit of chocolate pudding in the lunch box was always such a superlative delight.
Sadly, pudding gets a bit of a bad rap. Too often we think of the variety that comes in packs of plastic cups. Sure they might be tasty, but so much garbage — inside and out!
Not the case with this Avocado Chocolate Pudding! Your inner child will love the chocolaty sweetness, and your mature self will feel great about the health benefits of chocolate and avocado!

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?

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!
