What is it about desserts? No matter how healthy, raw, or vegan we are, most of us still crave desserts! Good thing going raw doesn't mean going without scrumptious sweets!
Frozen raw desserts are a snap to make and handy to whip out of the freezer when a craving hits (or guests arrive!). All of these desserts must be frozen as they contain coconut oil. Coconut oil is liquidy/soft in its warm state, but totally hardens in its frozen state. This is why all these desserts must be kept in the freezer.
So without further ado, here is a round-up of some of my favorite frozen raw desserts...
Raw Chocolate Cherry Fudge Cake
Ooh-la-la. Yes, this is as dreamy as it sounds. Chocolate and cherries combine for a tres decadent dessert. If you want to impress (yourself or whoever!), try this Raw Chocolate Cherry Fudge Cake!
While this dessert looks fancy-schmancy, it's requires only a blender. Super easy!
Raw Chocolate Shortbread Bars
Yes, you can go totally raw, and indulge in shortbread, too! These Raw Chocolate Shortbread Bars take shortbread to a whole new level with the zingy addition of lemon! Cashews, coconut and dates form the base for the bars. Cocao, coconut oil and cashews make for a yummy chocolate-y topping.
These bars are perfect to keep on hand in the freezer for unexpected visitors. I like to add thawed raspberries on top for an extra flavor kick!
Raw Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin pie lovers, rejoice! Here's a Raw Pumpkin Pie that is easier to make than a 'real' pumpkin pie, and tastes just as good or better!
When you're craving a slice, just pop it out of the freezer and serve frozen. Yum!
Raw Sesame Seed Bars
I try to keep a stash of these in the freezer at all times. One of my faves! This Raw Sesame Seed Bar recipe is full of sesame seeds, raisins, flaxseed, coconut, and tahini. And of course, coconut oil to hold it all together in the freezer!
No equipment required for this recipe. Just a big 'ol bowl and mixing spoon!
Raw Vanilla Drop Cookies
Freezer cookies are the handiest snack to keep on hand. And these Raw Vanilla Drop Cookies are guaranteed to hit your sweet spot. Tahini is the 'secret' ingredient that makes these cookies such a delight.
Try to save some of these tasty treats in the freezer for your friends!
Cheesecake is another dessert that I can't live without. What about you? If you're a cheesecake fan, then this dee-lish Raw Cheesecake recipe is for you. Believe me when I say it tastes like the 'real deal.' Truly!
Macadamia nuts, cashews, coconut, and dates are just some of the key ingredients that make this frozen cheesecake so delectable!
Ready, set... freeze!
What's in your freezer right now? Frozen raw desserts are a no-brainer... for when you're dying for a treat, or for a visiting friend/neighbor/whoever! I love to serve up a piece of pie, or a plate of cookies to my guests! (Confession: it's the sesame seed bars I have a hard time not keeping all to myself!)
