In addition to being incredibly tasty, raw (no-bake) desserts can also be some of the healthiest and most planet-friendly options.
Here are a few reasons we think raw desserts are a a great choice!
- Raw desserts often feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds and dried fruit.
- They get their sweetness from dried fruit, raw agave nectar, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial sweeteners here!
- They are no-bake! Great for the warmth of spring or summer, and also for energy conservation, you can avoid cranking up the oven to 350 when making a raw dessert.
- Most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan!
Are you ready to try a raw dessert yet?! Here a collection of our favorite recipes.
Our chocolate cream cakes are not only healthy and easy to make, they are raw and gluten free too! Plus perfect individual serving! Plus this recipe can be easily changed to your taste preference. We used pecans in crust, but any nut would work. For the filling, we used cashews as they provide the best cream. But macadamia nuts would be okay. We reduced the amount of sugar in these chocolate cream cakes, so adjust to your liking.
Raw chocolate, or better known in the raw food world as “raw cacao” is an amazing source of magnesium (great for helping you relax), as well as an astounding way to gobble up antioxidants. And, it contains phenylethylamine (PEA) — this is what our brains secrete when we fall in love. Ooooh!
This is a raw apple pie, but it’s just as filling and comforting as any cooked version and would be suitable for any festivities of the season.
This recipe combines the best parts of several desserts. It includes a light macadamia crust from one recipe, a chocolate ganache from another recipe, and a coconut cream from yet another, with fresh strawberries to make it even more delicious
The beauty of vegan baking and raw cake-making is that you can totally reinvent classic dishes. That way, you get to enjoy two versions: the more traditional, familiar recipe, and the new, tantalizing recipe. The brownie base is a cheeky wink to all the chocolate lovers out there: it makes this cake even more indulgent!
These are just plain good. They are the perfect recipe for anyone because raw food skeptics will be like: “Oh snap. This is HEALTHY?”
This is based on the Dobos torte, which is vanilla sponge cake, thinly layered with chocolate buttercream and topped with hard caramel slices. But this is way better!
We all love(d) the classic dessert version of carrot cake, but we’re not crazy about the processed ingredients like white sugar, refined flour, pasteurized butter and cream cheese. We decided to remake this baby with healthy whole foods! Consider it DONE.
If you like chocolate, you’ll love this. It’s like a mega awesome super chocolate party in your mouth which this results in an excellent, ethereal sense of well being.
Vanilla chocolate chunk cheesecake with peanut butter + coconut. Just perfect!
The name speaks for itself. How could dark chocolate, sea salt, and caramel go wrong? If you are in opposition we highly suggest that you venture out and create these delightful cups of happiness.
This is delectable! All fruit, all the time. This cake has a vibrant array of colours that are naturally pleasing to your pretty little eyes.
