If you are not sure about using avocados for a desert, try making just one pies using one avocado to see how you like it! Or just make a thicker crust and a thin cream layer.

How to replace some of the ingredients if you need to

Almonds

You can use any kind of nuts of your choice. Cashews are great, walnuts are awesome, you can even try using seeds like sunflower seeds for the crust.

Dates

You can replace the dates using mulberries, dried apricots or even raisins.

Orange juice

You can use juice of lemons, limes, or clementines instead.

      I'm Ina

      I'm passionate about raw food because it's so amazing, I don't crave anything else. Raw food is not only super tasty and healthy, it is also incredibly versatile and exciting. Give one of my recipes a try.

    Chocolate spread

    Delicious, healthy, raw chocolate spread made with just 3 ingredients. With avocado and dates, vegan, dairy-free, no butter or oil, no added sugar.

    Chocolate spreads are unhealthy

    A healthy chocolate spread? How is it possible? If we only use healthy ingredients to make our spread from scratch, it will turn out super healthy. Not using any oils, processed sugars, dairy is a good plan for a healthy recipe.

    How about the sweetness

    A chocolate spread has to be sweet, right? Yes, but there is a workaround for this particular recipe, we are gonna use the healthiest sweetener there is, dates. Dates might not work in every single recipe as a sugar replacement, but here, the soft medjool dates are perfekt. Date are not only sweet, they also add a caramelly flavor to the spread.

    Is cacao unhealthy?

    There are many opinions on the health benefits and dangers of cacao out there. If you don’t wanna use cacao, use carob instead.

    Apple pie

    Who doesn’t love apple pies? And this raw vegan version of an apple pie is not just delicious, it’s even healthy. A super healthy no bake apple pie.

    Why this raw vegan apple pie is better than any other pie

    Raw vegan cakes and pies are not as hard to make as baked once, but still take quite some time to prep. Here, I wanna share a quick and easy everyday raw vegan apple pie recipe that you will wanna make every day and it will not eat up much of your time. It’s one of these recipes that are faster to make than to eat.

    8 soft
    apples
    1 tbsp
    almond butter
    4
    Medjool dates, pitted
    1 tbsp
    cinnamon Cylon
    Thinly slice 4 apples. Mix 2 apples , almond butter dates and cinnamon into a thick sauce and combine with the apple slices.

    It’s that easy to make an apple pie

    You definitely don’t have to be a raw food chef or to buy expensive exotic superfoods to create a dessert you can enjoy daily. The very first homemade apple pie I remember eating at my 3rd cousin’s. She baked when I visited her family many years ago. It was, as cakes usually are, a vegetarian cake and being a vegetarian back then, I tried a slice. She advertised it as the most effortless and quick recipe she had ever baked. I took her around 40 minutes to wipe it off. I can’t quite remember the taste of it, but it was a fluffy dough with a thin layer of apples on top. I ate up the apples, they were the best. No wonder my fav apple pie nowadays is made without the dough entirely.

    It’s not a birthday cake

    This pie is basically just the filling of an apple pie, which is the best part of a pie for me anyways. Surprisingly, I completely lost my passion for apples over the years are rarely eat any, but this apple pie convinces me to eat 3-4 apple in one sitting every time I make it. This apple pie is what it is, it doesn’t pretend to be anything else, anything better, anything fancy. It is simple and honest recipe and has the potential to become a stable dessert or even to replace lunch.

    Date, Agave, Honey? What is healthier

    Dates are a healthier sugar alternative. It is better than agave or honey. Not that we are considering honey as a possible food, it’s a product bees invested hard labor in to have food for themselves and who are we to steel it, right?! Back to the date, dates are the best.

    Chocolate Milk

    Sure, you can by vegan milks at a store, but it’s so easy to make your own raw vegan milk at home. Plan-based milks are not only tastier and healthier than cow’s milk, they are also so versatile and fun to make.
    We used to love chocolate milk. The taste, the sweetness, the flavor of cocoa. Not the unhealthy ingredients of it or the animal-cruelty caused by the milk production for sure. So here is an amazing hemp-based alternative. It is healthier and even more delicious. There are so many more good non-dairy vegan substitutes for milk we will share with you this year!
