The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I love throwing fresh fruit on top of almost all the raw dessert recipes that I make. However, I was having a guest over for dessert and I wanted extra "wow" factor so I decided to whip up a raw strawberry sauce recipe instead.

The addition of the chia seeds helps to thicken the strawberry sauce. You can make it without the chia seeds, but the sauce will be a bit runnier.

Do not add the sauce to your recipe until it is ready to be served because you don't want your dessert to get soggy.

Of course, you can make raw flax pancakes you can use this raw strawberry sauce as a fruity syrup, too.

Also, you can substitute other berries instead of the strawberries in this raw strawberry sauce recipe. (However, do not use raspberries as the raspberry seeds will become very gritty and the sauce will taste good, but it will taste like there are little grains of sand throughout the sauce.)

What kind of dates? I'm new to raw eating.
I've grown up eating dry dates in a packet on the shelf.

Hi Alyce,

Ideally you could use fresh dates that are in the produce section and that usually have pits. But you can definitely use dry dates that are in a packet on the shelf - they will work great in all my recipes if you can't find or cannot afford the fresh ones.

Not raw but like to incorporate many fun raw dishes into our whole foods lifestyle. Made this morning with cashew nut butter, banana pancakes and it was amazing! I did heat it some but was really yummy

Never heard of them! They might work IF they are good at absorbing water - probably not though

I realised that it was Tuesday morning so excitedly checked to see if there was a new recipe! I then went straight to the freezer to get out the strawberries and have just made this recipe. I found it very difficult to get it from the blender to the fridge without eating it all! I am so looking forward to coming back in a few hours to properly sample it! I really love the simplicity of most of your recipes. Thank you! I will let you know if the finished product is a hit or not!

I can absolutely see how this would work. Chia seed has a great texture-making ability, and the dates would keep the chia seeds from seeming too crunchy. I'll definitely make this when I'm done with my vegetable juice feast. :D

Hi Court! Thanks for your motivation, I am trying hard to stick to the schedule. But I am a total procrastinator so forgive me if I slip up now and then :) So far so good though!
