If you’re new to raw vegan desserts, there are a few key ingredients I’d recommend on stocking your pantry with so you’re ready for raw vegan adventures. If you keep these ingredients on hand you’ll always be ready to make something healthy, wholesome and delicious!
Top Ingredients For Raw Vegan Dessert Recipes
Nuts like raw cashews and almonds
Pure vanilla extract
Coconut oil and coconut butter
Nut butters like almond, cashew and peanut
Pure maple syrup, agave and brown rice syrup
Seeds like chia, hemp and sunflower
Cocoa or cacao powder
Shredded coconut and coconut flakes
Buckwheat groats and oats
Fresh and frozen fruit
That’s just a sample of the typical ingredients you’d see in a raw vegan dessert recipe. These ingredients are not cheap so raw vegan creations can sometimes be an expensive undertaking. However, I think for special occasions it’s worth it to make something like this Raw Caramel Pecan Cheesecake or these Raw Chocolate Raspberry Brownies.
Raw vegan desserts can be quite rich and dense so they’re definitely something you have to watch your serving sizes with, that being said you can rest assured you’re only enjoying whole, real foods that come with not only amazing flavours but added health benefits too.
I hope you found something that caught your eye in this post! Big thanks to the bloggers listed above for taking the time to create incredible, creative, beautiful and whole food recipes for us all to enjoy!
