Vanilla Cashew Cream

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked for 2 hours
  • 1/4-1/2 cup filtered water depending on desired thickness
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract, plus more to taste
  • a pinch of Celtic sea salt

Throw everything into the blender and blast on high until thick and creamy.




This lime tart is nice and "tart" and very delicious!

For the crust you will need:

1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw pecans
2/3 heaping cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
2 cups Medjool dates
1-2 tsp sea salt

Put all ingredients in a food processor and combine until they form a solid mass.

It will still be a little chunky; that’s fine.

Line a 6-8 cup muffin tin with plastic wrap (depending on how thick you like your crusts you will get 6-8 tartlets from the dough). Press dough firmly into muffin tin, making sure you build up the edges well. Cover and set aside in the refrigerator for at least an hour and up to 24 hours.

For the filling you will need:

3-4 ripe avocados, pitted, flesh removed
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 pinches fine sea salt
grated zest of 1 lime, plus extra for topping if desired

Put all ingredients in a food processor and combine until smooth. Taste and adjust salt, lime or sweetness.

Fill tartlet shells and refrigerate, covered, at least one hour.

To serve, gently remove tartlets and top with your choice of grated lime zest, shaved dark chocolate, or non-dairy whipped topping.

Ani’s Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake

From the book Ani’s Raw Food Desserts by Ani Phyo. 


Ani says: Say hello to home-style frosting fresh and not from a plastic tub. Goodness without guilt. I use carob in my cake to cut down on the caffeine, and because I love carob for its malty rich flavor. This cake is to live for; it’s one of my favorites.

3 cups dry walnuts
2/3 cup unsweetened cacao powder or
carob powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup pitted Medjool dates

1/3 cup semi-soft pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup ripe avocado flesh (from about 1
medium avocado)
1/3 cup cacao powder

1/2 cup raspberries

To make the cake, combine the walnuts, cacao powder, and salt in the food processor and pulse until coarsely mixed. Avoid overprocessing. Add the dates and pulse until mixed well. Shape into 2 stackable cakes of desired shape and set aside.

To make the frosting, combine the dates and agave syrup in the food processor and process until smooth. Add the avocado and process until smooth. Add the cacao powder and process until smooth.

To serve, frost the top of one of the cakes with half the frosting and top with the raspberries. Stack the second cake on top and frost the top and side. Serve immediately, or place in the refrigerator for a couple hours to firm up.

The cake on its own will keep in the fridge for many weeks. The frosting will keep separately in the fridge for 1 week. The assembled cake with raspberries will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.


Raw Key Lime Pie Recipe

Gluten, egg, and dairy-free

Makes 2 4″ mini pies

For the pie crust:


  • 1/2 c. macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 c. almonds
  • 3 dates, depitted and chopped


  1. In a food processor, pulse until crumbly.
  2. Using half of the crust mix, place on the bottom of a 4″ mini springform pan and press gently with hands until smooth. Repeat for the other pan.

For the pie filling:


  • 2 c. cashews, soaked for 3 hours
  • 3/4 c. lime juice
  • 1/4 c. agave nectar
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Zest of 2 limes


  1. In a blender, combine all the ingredients except for the coconut oil until completely smooth. If it is difficult to blend, add 1 Tb of water at a time until the mix is able to blend properly. Try not to add too much though–you want a thick filling.
  2. Add the oil and blend until combined.
  3. Pour over crust and set in fridge for several hours until firm. (You might need to freeze the pie for a few minutes before you take it out of the pan.)
  4. Serve with fresh berries.



Raw Strawberry Pie


1 cup raw pecans

3/4 cup raw walnuts

1 cup (packed) pitted dates

¼ tsp (scant) sea salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon


3 cups fresh strawberries (measured whole if small, or cut in half if large; these are for filling, you will need extra for garnishing if desired)

3/4 cup raw cashews, unsoaked (see note)

3-4 tbsp raw agave nectar (can substitute pure maple syrup if preferred; start with 3, adjust to taste)

1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Couple pinches sea salt

1 tsp lemon zest (stir in after pureeing)

Extra strawberries for garnishing, optional

Lightly oil a pie plate with coconut or another oil. Prepare the crust: Place all the crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse briefly until crumbly and the mixture will hold together when pressed with your fingers. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pie plate, pressing it evenly into the pan. Prepare the filling: Place all the filling ingredients, except the lemon zest (and starting with 3 tablespoons of the agave nec- tar), in a high-powered blender (see note). Puree for a minute or so at medium-high speed until completely smooth and no texture of the cashews remains. Taste, and add the remaining tablespoon of agave, if needed, to sweeten, and puree again. Once smooth, stir in the lemon zest. Pour the filling into the crust, then cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place the pie in the freezer for at least 5 to 6 hours to set. After this time, the pie will be partially set, but can be sliced. You can freeze it longer, and remove the pie about 20 minutes before serving, to slice easily. Serves 6-8.

Ingredients 411: It is preferable to use unsoaked cashews because they have less moisture, and then can absorb some of the moisture from the strawberries as the pie sets. If using local seasonal berries, they tend to be softer and juicier than imported. Opt for another 2 tablespoons of cashews to help absorb the extra juices.


Raw Chocolate Mini Cheesecake - oh my - so delicious (makes about 4 small)


For The Crust

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp coconut butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp honey (can also use agave or maple syrup)

For The Filling

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked over night (or minimum 4 hours)
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup water, plus 1 Tbsp extra to blend if needed
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup honey (or little bit less depends on your taste)

For The Garnish

  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice

In a food processor, process raw almonds. Add cocoa powder, melted coconut butter, and honey. Mix everything well. Pat the crust into 3” ring molds to make it about 1/4” thick. Press the mixture hard to make a solid crust. (For an easy removal, line the bottom of your pan with a parchment paper) Place it in the fridge while preparing the filling.

Remove soaked cashews from the refrigerator, rinse, drain and place with the remaining ingredients in a high speed blender. Starting at the lowest speed, blend to achieve creamy texture, stirring occasionally as needed.
