I’ve been passionate about this subject for a while – Raw vegan food. Unfortunately, I still can’t live this lifestyle, as one of the pre-requisites of it is that you have to live in a tropical place, in order to find all-year round fresh, ripen fruits and vegetables. I live in England and one winter I tried eating the raw food diet. Needless to say, it didn’t last long.
I missed the hot meal, mainly because the weather in this country is so freaking cold nearly all year. We only have a shy summer for about three months and that’s it. Even during summer time the wind is so strong and cold that it honestly doesn’t feel like summer at all 🙁
Anyway, the recipe I’m going to show you is out of this world. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free and no refined sugar, and best of all, it tastes absolutely delicious. Guilt-free treats.
In the raw vegan world, a cake is vegan with no gluten and no dairy products. Just added super-foods that do a wealth of good to your body and soul… and totally more-ish. You don’t actually feel as if you’re missing out on anything when you taste one. That’s just how wonderful they are. Yet, there’s little knowledge out there about these beauties.
The whole idea is to have fun in the kitchen too when preparing these desserts. In ordinary baking, you change one ingredient and it won’t turn out right. In raw baking, if you don’t get it perfect, it will still taste good.
Today I have the recipe of a chocolate pudding that is absolutely amazing.
