Many fruits go well with creamy desserts, but raspberries have to be near the top of that list. Considering we’re at the peak of the raspberry season in the US, we’ve decided to compile a list of our favorite raspberries and cream recipes. Make sure you leave plenty of room for dessert!
1. Raspberry Cream Filled Chocolates

The filling for these Raspberry Cream Filled Chocolates by Nissrine Boufawaz is made with raw cashews, lemon, vanilla, coconut, and brown rice malt syrup. It gets its bright pink color and slightly tart flavor from fresh raspberries. Making them is a bit of a process, but don’t let the multiple steps scare you off, as they’re worth it. You can store them in the freezer and have them as a frozen treat, or leave them in the fridge and enjoy them like a chocolate-covered cream. But don’t leave them at room temperature.
2. No-Bake Mango Raspberry Cream Pie

This No-Bake Mango Raspberry Cream Pie recipe by Gretchen Price is easier than it looks! The best part is you don’t have to turn on the oven! It’s bursting with the delicious flavors of raspberry and mango, then topped off with vegan whipped cream. The recipe calls for vegan cream cheese as the base for both of the filling layers, but if you do not have vegan cream cheese you can sub in cashew cream instead. Just add that last after cooking the mixture on the stove. You can also use sliced mango instead of the golden sandwich cookies layer. This mango raspberry cream pie is such a crowd pleaser––you have to try it out!
3. Peanut Butter Creme and Raspberry Chiffon Pie

All that is in this Raw Vanilla Raspberry Peppermint Cream Cake by Emily von Euw is fruit, nuts, and seeds – and it tastes even better than it looks. We’ve got a basic raw crust on the bottom (dates and hemp seeds), followed by three gorgeous cashew and orange cream layers. One is subtly sweet and includes vanilla, one is a bit tart and flavored with raspberries, and one is mega refreshing and packed with peppermint leaves. It’s all topped off with dark chocolate (cacao) truffles and drizzle.
9. Raspberry Mille-Feuille With Lemon Pastry Cream

The mille-feuille, also known as a Napoleon, is a decadent french dessert made from three layers of puff pastry layered with buttery pastry cream or sometimes, jam and whipped cream. This amazing Raspberry Mille-Feuille With Lemon Pastry Cream by Gemma Gonzalez layers the puff pastry with a rich lemon pastry cream and fresh raspberries, providing you with sweetness, tartness, and a flaky puff pastry in every bite. Its amazing presentation is finished off with a drizzle of dark chocolate and a light dusting of powdered sugar instead of the traditional fondant.
10. Moroccan Cranachan

Cranachan is a Scottish dessert usually composed of whipped cream, toasted oats, whisky, and raspberries. This Moroccan Cranachan by Celine Steen combines yogurt with the cream and goes for Moroccan flavors using pomegranate, sumac, and rose buds. Not only is it delicious, but it looks gorgeous as well. If you aren’t a fan of tart flavors, use something other than pomegranate molasses to sweeten your treat. Agave nectar, brown rice syrup, or even granulated natural sugars will work well here.
