Sweetly Raw Dessert Recipe Index!


In FOUR YEARS of writing this blog, I haven't put together a recipe index. Can you believe it?! The time has come. I've finally created a raw vegan dessert section containing 100 sweet recipes (savory recipe section to come in the future - I realized while putting together the list of sweet stuff that I actually have more savory recipes than I thought).

I hope you'll enjoy being able to easily access the dessert recipes on this bloggie. Putting this page together brought me back to so many tasty desserts I've made over the years.


I thought I'd share three oldies that are perfect for Spring/Summer. It's funny to see my old photos and posts - they sure have come a long way since 2007.

Here's a Strawberry Pineapple Pudding from Spring 2010. 


Strawberry Pineapple Pudding
3 cups chopped strawberries
1 cup chopped mango or pineapple
1/2 cup cashews
2- 3 tablespoons liquid sweetener, or to taste
3 tablespoons irish moss gel*
1 tablespoons lecithin
2 teaspoons psyllium
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon melted cacao butter

Blend all ingredients but the cacao butter, until smooth and creamy. Add the butter and blend again. Chill the mixture in the fridge, or freeze for a few hours for more of an ice cream. 

*Irish moss gel: Soak a handful of irish moss, measure out 2 oz, chop it, and blend it with 1 cup water until totally broken down and slightly warm. Save the remaining gel for other recipes.

Here's another fun one if you like cereal or granola. Hello healthy oatmeal crunch cereal with a base of almond pulp and use the almond milk for the cereal! See full post HERE. 


Raw Vegan Oatmeal Crunch Cereal

1 cup packed almond pulp
3/4 cup dried shredded coconut
2/3 cup ground oat flour (with regular oats, gluten free oats, or raw oat groats)
1/3 - 1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon himalayan salt

Mix all ingredients together. 
Spread out on teflex sheets and dehydrate at 145F for 2 hours. 
Turn the temperature down to 115F and continue to dry for 8-10 hours (or until dry and crunchy), flipping onto the mesh screen halfway through.

This summery tart was part of a post I did on raw mini cakes I made for a wedding in 2009. Check out full post HERE. 


Mango Raspberry Tart
Crust:
2 cups nuts of choice
3/4 cup pitted, packed dates

Grind the nuts and dates together in a food processor. Add 1-2 teaspoons of water if the mixture is too dry and crumbly.
Press the mixture into an 8" tart pan, or use mini tart pans.

Filling:

2 cups diced mango
1 1/2 cups cashews
1/4 cup agave
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1-2 tbs lemon juice
1/3 cup melted cacao butter
2 cups raspberries

Blend all but the cacao butter, coconut oil, and berries, until smooth and creamy. 
Add the cacao butter/oil and blend until completely mixed.
Evenly spread some of the raspberries over the crust and then smash them down with a fork.
Spread the mango filling over top.
Garnish with the remaining raspberries (and more if needed).

Good for you for putting this together! Those darn indexes can be so much work!

That cereal is calling my name! Thanks for calling attention to your older recipes I missed :) Can't wait to dig through that list!

Heather Pace said...

Thanks ladies! I've wanted to do it for a long time. I'll get all the other recipes indexed eventually too!

I just found your website! For me, as a gluten and dairy free person, this website is a godsend. I have been missing cheesecake for tooo long.

I'm so impressed with the fact that you've put together a recipe index. I've had my blog just as long and still haven't taken the time to do it. Congrats girl!

BTW, I want some of that cereal. Perfect for eating while watching cartoons with the kids :-)

Heather Pace said...

Shannon - I know! It took me a while but so glad I did it. Savory recipes to tackle next - it wont take nearly as long, lol. Yeah try the cereal. Its so tasty and crunchy.

Your site is jam packed with tasty recipes! I'm definitely going to try a few of them. I have never worked with moss, so this will be a new experience for me.
I would love to invite you to share your recipe links with us in our recipe carnival. It opens each week on Sunday at 7pm and closes at midnight each Wed. Hope to see you there!

Heather Pace said...

Thanks Mary! ANd thanks for the invite too. Will have to add a recipe.
Irish moss is so fun and I know intimidating at first - but once you try it, you'll want to keep using and see how easy it is.

Oh, I must say my heart skips a beat when I see a new recipe on your blog....
The vegan berry cheesecake (which was a huge success at the last Potluck Party) inspired me to make my last dessert (I actually really wanted to make it exactly the same - but I still need to work out some organizing techniques to make sure I DO have all the ingredients). But kudos to you for inspiring a new dessert for me ;)

I do hope to see you again for this PP with another incredible goodie ;) ps. The theme is actually Healthy Desserts - and I think you would get the #1 award!

What can replace cacao butter for the tart recipe?

Heather Pace said...

You can use 1/2 cup coconut oil, although it will change the taste - achieve the same texture, but taste will be diff as long as you don't mind :)
