It’s Father’s Day! What is dad’s favorite dessert? One of these simple raw desserts will surely satisfy his sweet tooth! If he likes creamy desserts, try the raw cheesecake or the raw banana cream pie. For simpler fare, whip up raw apple pie or raw carrot refrigerator cake. Whatever you decide to make, you can be sure it will be a big hit with the dad in your life!

And if dad isn't into "raw food"? Don't tell him! What he doesn't know won't hurt him :)

My own Dad lives across the country and I won't be able to serve him any raw delights tonight. And my husband and I don't have children so we have no specific reason to enjoy an extra fun dessert tonight. But... I like any reason to make raw sweets! I mean, why not - right?

Raw banana cream pie

– You can’t beat this delicious and simple raw dessert. So very smooth and creamy, yet easy to make, this raw banana cream pie will impress your dad! (Everyone wants seconds of this one, so if serving for a large group you may want to double it.)

Raw cheesecake

- Here is a simple raw dessert that even your non-raw dad will love! This rich and delicious raw cheesecake tastes just like the real thing, try it and see. Really!

Raw apple pie

– Here is a great simple raw dessert for the dads who love apple pie. While not a ‘fancy’ dessert, this raw apple pie is both flavourful and filling, and can be made up to a week before dad’s special day! If my dad was here, I'd make him this one because he loves apple pie. Oh pop, wish I lived closer to you!

Raw carrot refrigerator cake recipe

– Who doesn’t love carrot cake? This simple raw dessert surprisingly has the texture and taste of cooked carrot cake, and keeps well in the fridge for several days. Great for leftovers. Surprise your pop with this raw carrot refrigerator cake!

Will you be making a simple raw dessert recipe for the pop in your life this Father’s Day?

Hi Thrifty! In most recipes you can use macadamia nuts or pine nuts instead of cashews. Not sure how the price compares though. Where I live (in Canada) pine nuts are crazy expensive!!!!! even more expensive than cashews :/ In some recipes, you can get away with skimping on cashews (using less than called for)

Your desserts look yummy. I tried your cheese cake, made a few changes and it was delicious! You are also very creative. I make desserts very similar to yours. Nice to have a newcomer like yourself in the raw food community. Peace.

What can I substitute for cashews that I find in so many of your recipes? #1 Finding truly raw cashew is extremely difficult since they are harvested with a tool that is heated and they are still sold as raw [or so I was told] #2 they are too expensive for my budget. PS LOVE YOUR SITE. THANKS !!!!

Hi Irene! I find cashews are really expensive locally. I buy in bulk from nuts.com - unsalted, unroasted cashew splits
