You haven't lived until you've had this raw cream cheese icing recipe with a big, nice slice of raw carrot cake!

Note that it's the coconut oil that will help this raw cream cheese recipe firm up, so... don't omit it, ok?

The icing will get softer and more gooey (gooeyer?) once it warms up so it's best to ice and then eat right away. Or store your entire cake in the fridge and then cut slices right away.

Enjoy this raw cream cheese icing recipe!

This was absolutely amazing! I used it on a "regular" vegan carrot cake - amazing! I couldn't stop myself from licking the Vita Mix, haha.

Licking the vitamix is a sure sign of success. It happens a lot in my house too! PS: Love your profile pic. Adorable!

Hi Cupcake! This icing isn't the best for piping. Try my chocolate icing instead :) https://www.therawtarian.com/raw-chocolate-icing

I just made your carrot cake. It is delicious. What I really like about these recipes is not so much that they are raw. Sugar is raw LOL. But the ingredients are healthy too, and yet they taste so bad for you :D

Hi!

I am a big fan of raw cashew frosting for cakes, however I am having a friend over that is allergic to cashews, walnuts, peanuts (most nuts), but he can eat pine nuts. I really don't want to spend the money on a bunch of pine nuts if it won't work out...do you think it might still be good? Do you have any other ideas?

Thank you!

Hi Jessica,

Yes, I would agree that the pine nut idea would work, but it would be like $20 lol

I suggest doing a banana, coconut oil, lemon juice and sweetener icing instead

Should the cashews be soaked for this recipe?

I made dehydrated carrot cake style crackers then added your cream cheese icing and redehydrated the crackers. They turned out great! My husband liked them so much that he ate an entire tray full. So I guess I'll have to hide them and ration them out to him LOL! Thanks for the great recipe and I can't wait to try the chocolate cream cheese.

Hi! Made your non-dehydrated carrot cake, and was about to make the frosting - are the cashews soaked first? I have a vitamix, so they shouldn't be a problem, but just wondering. Thanks!
