Something about the combination of cashews, coconut, goji berries and peppermint oil really does taste like candy cane! The red bits of goji berry with white coconut and cashew even gives the truffles an appearance that is reminiscent of this classic Holiday candy. Even though this recipe was inspired by the Holidays it can be made any time of the year and is absolutely delightful frozen too as a cooling summer treat. Truffles are so easy to make, look completely gourmet, and are fun because you can roll them in all sorts of toppings to vary both the appearance and flavor. And they're so cute!
Chef Marlie Centawer was inspired by the amazing recipe Goddesses over at Golubka to create a modified version of the truffles she found there. These densely satisfying truffles combine raw cacao with warming, grounding spices of mesquite, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The natural unprocessed coconut and walnut oils add a nice malleability to the recipe. Make this recipe for a special occasion, a gift for a friend, or just any ol' time! They also store very well in the freezer for a few weeks and are really nice little treats to have on hand when the need for chocolate hits.
Summer is right around the corner and what's every raw foodie's favorite part of the season? The abundance of fresh summer produce of course! This smoothie is packed full of antioxidants from dark cherries and makes for an equally pleasing dessert or breakfast. Add a vegan protein powder like Epic Protein (Lucuma Vanilla flavor would be amazing) Or turn it into a green smoothie by throwing in a handful or two of greens. This treat is based on Kristen's Chocolate Cherry Bomb recipe.
Don't let this mouthwatering picture deceive you by it's lovely gourmet composition into thinking this is a complicated recipe. It is actually very simple and only requires 4, yes only 4, ingredients!
Green tea and raw cacao? Now that is a combination surely made in heaven! Experience these chewy, sweet, richly dense brownies for a dose of antioxidants, nutrients, chlorophyll, fiber, and yes a bit of caffeine too! Matcha green tea contains a substance called L-theanine which helps to relax the mind.
Gena says "This pudding will be a great dessert option for any starch-based meal, but you can also enjoy it with some fruit if you like! It would also taste wonderful with freshly squeezed lime juice for a “key lime” variation."
These "mini brownie bites" are wildly versatile. Cut them in larger pieces and eat like an energy bar or simply wrap small squares in paper and put them in the Easter egg. This recipe is nut free and honestly, one of the best dessert combinations I have ever tried.
Lisa Pitman tells it how it is about this recipe of hers- "Simple. Sweet. Special. One spoonful at a time, the chaos of life was kept at bay. I sat in quiet contemplation of the glorious combination of blueberries, dates and ginger."
Lemon and coconut are a perfect match of flavors. Try this simple and sweet coconut lemon bar tonight.

This is a simple dessert with a 6 ingredient mousse, but with a chocolate heart that is a little more advanced to make. If you want to keep it more simple, skip the white chocolate decoration on the heart!
Delicious, simple and easy. It's great for whenever you're in a rush and you're just not in the mood to choking down your first meal of the day.

This recipe does take a bit of preparation because it has to be soaked overnight, but, with only a few ingredients, it's so easy! Of course, like any good oatmeal, top this recipe with fruit or whatever suits your fancy. Raw oatmeal for two!
