Avocado Overdose

All these avocados just begging to be eaten¬†is a sight from heaven for me: I can throw them into a food processor to make 5 ingredient guacamole (avos, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon or lime juice) or a raw chocolate tart. I’ll also be exploring a new raw tart (key lime) of soaked cashew/avocado filling and…

Raw Chocolate Tart

As you can tell, raw desserts are my new obsession, though I am still extremely amateur. Thanks Nikole for the original recipe! Ingredients Chocolate Filling: 2 ripe avocados 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder 1 tablespoon ¬†vanilla extract 1/2 cup raw agave nectar Tart Crust: 2 cups raw pecans 1/4 cup unsweetened cacao powder 1 tablespoon…

Raw Carrot Cake

As I’ve said before, I’m painfully new to raw desserts, but this recipe is so amazing that a friend asked me to make it with her, we had extra frosting so I immediately made a 2nd cake, then another friend who tried that had me make a double-size cake with her three days later! That…

Crust: I pureed/chopped 1 cup almonds and 2 soaked apricots (most recipes call for dates, but pretty much any dried fruit will work if you don’t have dates laying around!). I…

Frozen Banana Ice Cream

In the interest of expanding my repertoire of recipes, I just got a food processor. I know this is CHEAP Gluten-free Vegan, so I don’t like to use or require a lot of fancy kitchen utensils and contraptions. But Target and other retailers are selling a KitchenAid BPA-free, 3-cup food processor with a 2-year warranty…

Chia Seed Parfait

In a continuing tradition of soaking stuff in non-dairy milk…the chia seed parfait! Soak chia seeds in non-dairy milk overnight or for several hours (about 4 tbsp seeds to 1 cup milk). I think this is sweet enough but you could add maple syrup or other sweetener if desired. Stir when you can, including right…

Avocado & Flackers

A raw snack, which at over 400 calories per serving could be a meal! Flackers are raw, GF flax seed crackers that are high in omega 3’s, protein, fiber, and vitamins and minerals. Slice an avocado, serve together! Definitely works with the “Savory” flavor, but probably any are good! Flackers are available at Whole Foods…
