Enjoy some of the best date recipes on the internet. From simple stuffed dates to date and nut balls. Enjoy!
The texture of this hot chocolate is a bit thick due to the cacao nibs and the dates. For that reason, it reminds me a whole lot of the super-rich, upscale hot chocolates—the kind that are practically melted chocolate in a glass—that you’ll sometimes find at fine chocolatiers. Except this one is made with only almond milk, cacao nibs and powder, dates, and spice. A healthy spin on a decadent classic.
Enjoy a gooey, doughy, sweetly spiced cinnamon roll while maintaining your raw diet! Hazelnut pulp, ground flaxseed, figs and dates form base ingredients for the rolls themselves.

The cinnamon rolls were an adaption of a recipe from Goneraw, check it out for more inspiration!: http://goneraw.com/recipe/cinnamon-rolls

We love taking part in Marlie Centawer's Smoothie Sundays! This particular creation can be made high raw with cooked pureed pumpkin OR do like we do and keep the pumpkin puree raw by simply blending up the flesh of sweet pie pumpkin in your blender until smooth. Hemp mylk makes a great base for this smoothie with its thick creamy texture, earthy flavor, and high nutrient content. Fresh banana and a few soaked dates help to thicken and sweeten things up and the spices add that spicy pumpkin pie flavor we all love this time of year.

This is an extremely decadent raw chocolate mousse cake, featuring surprisingly avocado!

This is one of my Caramelia Cakes… it is SO good and if you serve yourself a slice with a cup of Vanilla Roibus tea… ooh divine!
I really used to LOVE Rolos and one day I was in my kitchen thinking, why not start making alternative versions of my childhood favourites? Then the idea for Rawlos was born (see what I did there!)

They are a treat for sure - maybe have one or two (or three) after a very big, green smoothie!

Peppermint oil has a soothing, cooling, and mildy stimulating effect on the digestive system and what better way to get the benefits than from a sweet bliss ball!
Having never frosted my raw brownies before, I wasn’t sure what to use. I could do chocomole, of course, but one does tire of the same old recipe. I could do a cashew or coconut frosting, but heck, I overuse those ingredients in my raw treats, too. I thought about using superfoods like maca or mesquite, thought about using banana in some way, and then finally it occurred to me that I did have a can of organic pumpkin sitting in my pantry. Was chocolate and pumpkin too radical of a frosting concept??
A little Googling indicated that chocolate and pumpkin play together very nicely indeed; just check out Isa’s chocolate pumpkin bread if you need proof. I saw it, decided that I had all the evidence I needed to proceed with my idea, and got to blending. This frosting was every bit as easy as the brownies themselves, and honestly, I could easily enjoy it on its own, as a pudding. Seasonal, thick, and just sweet enough, it’s a great way to use up pureed pumpkin that you happen to have on hand, to create a vegan frosting without Earth Balance, and to enhance your frosted treats with some beta carotene.
Thanksgiving is approaching and its time to start planning what healthy options to bring to the table this year. What better way to show gratitude and thanks than by including healthy raw vegan options with the meal. This is a very simple yet completely delicious pumpkin mousse pie by Selena Vakharia of Veganlicious, perfect for the season! By pureeing the raw pumpkin and blending it with cashews and coconut butter we end up with a very creamy and smooth consistency, no oven required! And all those vitamins and antioxidants in the pumpkin remain perfectly in tact.
