Making raw vegan desserts seems easy as it doesn’t require any form of cooking but simply blending and mixing. But it seems easier than said. The difficulty in making such raw desserts is finding the right proportions of ingredients. Sometimes hunting for a specific ingredient that goes into the raw desserts can be daunting too! For instance, raw cocoa powder or carob are not sold in our local supermarkets so I have to buy them from online grocery websites like iHerb.
My first attempts of making raw desserts didn’t went as smoothly or successful as I want it to be but on subsequent attempts and through further adjustments, I roughly knew the perfect ratio of ingredients to achieve a well-balanced flavour that makes the desserts taste like the actual sinful desserts which were probably high in sugar and fat.
If you are a beginner in making raw vegan desserts, I suggests that you could start off by making chocolate mousse which is pretty fuss-free and simple to make. From there, you can add a little twist by pairing it with dehydrated fruit chips to add some crunch, raw foods or chopped raw nuts.
1. Remove the skin and seed from the avocado and toss it into the blender with the raw cocoa powder, maple syrup, cinnamon powder and vanilla extract.
2. Blend all the ingredients together for about 45 seconds till it looks creamy like mousse.
3. Fill the bottom of the glass cup with chopped raw cashew nuts and pour the chocolate mousse over it to form the second layer.
4. Top the mousse with blueberries and dried figs.
5. Chill it in the fridge for about an hour before serving. Enjoy!
Raw vegan desserts are simply amazing because it uses only 100% raw ingredients obtained from nature to satisfy your sweet tooth. It contains no processed sugar, gluten, milk or eggs. And of course, we can still enjoy our desserts while remaining healthy!
