Almond Chocolate Chip Ice-box Cookies

One of the great things about eating a high raw diet is the opportunity to splurge once in a while on some delicious gourmet raw treats. Raw cookies, whether 100% raw or mostly raw are one of my favorite things to make, eat, and share with others. If you wanted, you could go all out … Continue reading Almond Chocolate Chip Ice-box Cookies

Mylk Chocolate Chia Pudding

One of my favorite desserts is chocolate pudding. However, since I can’t and shouldn't enjoy dairy, and traditional and processed puddings are high in sugar and fat, I had to come up with a yummy alternative. Avocados are always great to use in raw puddings and frosting. They provide the right amount of “good” fat … Continue reading Mylk Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chocolate Covered Super-Cacao Squares

For several years now my favorite raw cookie recipe has been Cacao-Carob Super-Charged Cookie Balls, which I posted previously. It has also been a great hit with members of our local gyms.

Cacao-Carob Super-Charged Cookie Balls

The cookie recipe is packed with super-foods, super flavor, and super energy. Some of the ingredients may be a challenge to source, such as the cordyceps mushrooms and goji berries. Don’t worry – just omit them this time. The recipe is still packed with flavor with or without them. However, I highly recommend that you … Continue reading Cacao-Carob Super-Charged Cookie Balls

Cacao Sesame Treats

I love having a variety of snack foods to munch on throughout the day. This recipe is a great snacking recipe, as it’s sweet, crunchy, but not too heavy on the tummy. Before getting started, I recommend you soak about a cup of raw sesame seeds for about 12-14 hours. You will use them in … Continue reading Cacao Sesame Treats

Raw Pecan Date Pie

This Thanksgiving I chose to prepare the food that the family wanted, and only add a few raw treats. I prepared my favorite Cranberry Orange Relish, and then some delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes to compliment my family's "turkey", and the "tofurkey". For the dessert I decided to do a raw pecan pie with a … Continue reading Raw Pecan Date Pie

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Recently I have viewed a lot of different raw and vegan chocolate cake and pie recipes. My mouth was watering so much for just a taste, that I decided to make my own. I had the perfect excuse to make one too. My son was hosting a party for his Marching Band section - the … Continue reading Chocolate Mousse Cake

Delicious Drupe Raw Nut-Cheese Cake

Apricots and Peaches are considered drupes because of the large wooded seed inside them, referred to as a pit. They are delicious, and the perfect fruit for summer, and readily available at the farmer's market. They are sweet and juicy, yet tart and zesty. The perfect arrangement of flavors to enjoy fresh and raw, or … Continue reading Delicious Drupe Raw Nut-Cheese Cake

Sweets, treats, and book reviews

I realize it's been quite sometime since I posted a recipe or even a thought - my apologies. "Life" has been happening lately, which has put blogging at a lower spot on my current priorities list. However, I do love sharing things with you, so I thought I'd take some time and do so. About … Continue reading Sweets, treats, and book reviews
