Raw Coconut Caramel Chocolate Cake

Stuff I Make, VeganCrush | December 16, 2017 | By

OMG this raw coconut caramel chocolate cakes is not only healthy and easy to make, it is gluten free too and just divine! Raw desserts are so much fun to make and in fact anyone can do it! No baking or added sweetener required! Just rich, moist coconuty caramel chocolate goodness with wholesome ingredients.

This recipe can be easily changed to your preference or whats available in your kitchen  I like to keep it easy and quick, so you have no excuses! 😉 I used cashew nuts for the crust, but any nut would work. I can see so much potential in dressing this cake up in terms of flavors and toppings — like adding some orange flavor for example! Be creative and you will see endless possibilities. 🙂 

It will taste like a divine entity has landed in your mouth. Take a fork and dig in! 😀

Raw Chocolate Pudding

Vegan Crush

Dessert, Raw Food, Stuff I Make | March 19, 2016 | By

This raw chocolate pudding will make your heart skip a beat! I expect that kids will love this recipe too. The great thing about this pudding – besides its immensely rich texture and chocolate flavor – is that it’s naturally sweetened with dates. Of course, you can substitute whatever other natural sweetener you prefer – maple syrup and agave being ideal.

It’s also customizable. If you prefer an intense chocolate flavor, add less sweetener. If you prefer it thinner, thicker just adjust the almond milk as desired. And if you’re like me, you like your pudding on the sweeter side and will prefer adding more!! It’s extremely forgiving and flexible in this way.
