Almond pulp is the byproduct from making almond milk, and it’s also the secret ingredient for making this delicious raw vegan apricot bread! This recipe is a bit involved, but completely worth it! Plus, it’s an excuse to make some homemade almond milk. Yields an 8.5 x 4.25 x 2.5″ loaf.
Coconut cream! These ganache tarts have it. Rich, sweet, and lovely. Another fantastic recipe that shows that eating healthy doesn’t have to be a sacrifice!

Nothing says “good morning” like soft, delicious blueberry muffins. With the added soothing aroma of lavender, these muffins will help smooth over the transition to wakefulness even for those of us who really aren’t morning people.
Raw macadamia nuts provide much of the body of these blueberry muffins. They also help provide that wonderful buttery flavor. A hint of maple syrup, some cinnamon, and of course lovely lavender make for a uniquely pleasant experience. Dried blueberries are use for their texture and because they have a bit more of a concentrated flavor. Which is great, because there sure is a lot of flavor in these lavender blueberry muffins!
Don’t be fooled by the name of this smoothie! Mango and peach might be the two central ingredients, but there’s a lot more going on here than just those two wonderful fruits! We’ve got bananas, we’ve got celery, we’ve got chia and coconut water. We’ve even got some turmeric.
And that’s just for the base layer! Some of the really fun stuff comes in on the next layer. Here we’ve got our spirulina, our hemp seeds, and of course, our matcha powder. All these high-energy, protein and nutrient rich foods make this an excellent smoothie to enjoy after a good workout.
Of course, you should feel free to throw on any extras you might want. Blueberries and pomegranates make for a fine topping!
The weather outside is beautiful, so get out there and be active! Enjoy life, explore, and play!
Now all that playing and activity can tire us out. We need to refuel! And what better way to grow big and strong that a heavenly delicious chocolate covered protein bar?
Ever had a protein bar that tasted like cardboard? Those days are over. Now a protein bar from a store might taste alright, but is probably filled with added sugars and other weird things. Not so with these awesome bars! Coconut, agave, peanut butter and chocolate are all you need for a delicious taste experience to help power your active lifestyle!
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?
I think if everyone knew that you could have a raw vegan cream cake that looks and tastes as amazing as this inspirational creation, there’d be a lot more raw vegans around! Is this what they call a case of “having your cake, and eating it too“?
It’s never made sense to me why anyone would want to have a cake and not eat it. I mean, the whole point of having cakes is to eat them. But looking at this Strawberry Cashew Cream Cake, I can see why people might want to just have it. Look at this thing! It’s a work of art. In cake form!
The combination of carob and maple syrup is amazing. The dark sweetness of these two flavors really compliment the tartness of strawberries. Carob is an amazing substitute for cocoa that comes from a cool Mediterranean tree. The taste is almost like a cross between chocolate and raisins. It works wonderfully as a drizzle, with it’s unique yet familiar flavor.
The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for your cream cake the set in the fridge. Try to wait at least 24 hours. Consider that the time to “have your cake”, and only after that you get to eat it!
