Berry Chocolate Cheesecake Squares

Ingredients



The Crust:

3/4 cup raw almonds
3/4 cup raw walnuts
1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp agave or maple syrup
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

The Filling:

1 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight in water
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup agave or maple syrup
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup berries of choice (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries)

The Chocolate:

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/8 cup almond milk

Preparation

1. Begin by making the crust. In a food processor, process the walnuts, almonds, sea salt, and cinnamon until a fine crumb is achieved. Add the pitted, coarsely chopped dates and process again until it comes together and becomes sticky. If you pinch the mixture it should hold together.
2. Place parchment paper or plastic wrap into a 8″x 8″ square baking dish, letting it hang over the sides a few inches so you can lift it out later. Press nut mixture into the bottom in an even layer. Put it the freezer to chill.
3. Make the chocolate and the filling. Put chocolate chips in a small heat safe bowl. In a small saucepan heat almond milk and pour over chocolate, stirring to melt. Will take 30 seconds to 1 minute. Set aside. In a blender, put all filling ingredients. Blend 1-3 minutes until completely creamy, scraping down the sides as needed. Add a little water if needed to make it totally smooth.
4. Pour filling on top of nut mixture, and spread chocolate on top of that. Cover whole dish in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least one hour, but up to overnight. To serve, remove from freezer and lift the entire dessert out onto a cutting board. Remove parchment/plastic wrap from the bottom and cut into cubes. Let warm a little bit at room temperature and serve to your loved one!

Raw Cherry Lime Delight




Serves
8-16
Ingredients

For the base:

1 3/4 ounces rolled oats
10 dates, pitted
1 ounce raw sour cherries
1 tbsp maple syrup
Juice of ½ lime
Pinch Himalayan pink salt

For the filling:

5 ounces pre-soaked cashews
5 dates, pitted
1 avocado
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp water
Juice of ½ lime
3 tsp solid coconut oil
4 tbsp raw cacao (or cocoa powder)

Preparation

To make the base, combine all of the ingredients using a food processor. Pulse a few times until you have a fairly smooth paste (I like the oats to still have a little texture).
Line a tine (I used a 6″ cake tin, but a smaller flan dish would be fine) with foil and spoon the mixture in, pressing down until you have an even layer. Cover and place in the freezer while you make the filling.
Combine all of the filling ingredients in the food processor and blitz on a high speed until you have a soft, creamy mousse.
Pour onto the base, smooth out using a spatula and return to the freezer until you want to eat it (I would suggest for at least 30 minutes).
If you’re not eating the pie in one sitting, cut segments and return the rest for the freezer. It should last for a few weeks.

Notes
Soak the cashews in water a couple of hours before making the cake. If you're in a hurry, this time can be reduced by using boiling water.

No Machine Vegan Viennetta



Ingredients

Part 1:

3 cups peeled and chopped golden yam, steamed until soft
1 can organic coconut cream
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch pink salt
2 tbsp maple syrup
stevia to taste
1/8 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil

Part 2:

5-6 tbsp deodorized or virgin coconut oil
5-6 tbsp raw cacao powder
tiny pinch pink salt
liquid stevia to taste
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/8 tsp peppermint extract

Preparation

Part 1:

Blend together very well in a high speed blender until thick like a cream soup. Taste and adjust sweetness as desired with more maple or stevia. Set aside

Part 2:

Whisk together all part 2 ingredients in a double boiler over low simmering water, just enough to gently melt. Whisk until smooth. Taste. add extra stevia if not sweet enough.

Assembly:

Spread half the chocolate mixture evenly along the bottom of a parchment or plastic wrap lined bread pan. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes to set.
If you are impatient you can add the coconut mixture to it right away which will marble the two layers together. Pour the coconut mixture on top of the set or unset chocolate layer and spread out evenly to the sides. Place in the freezer to set firm.
Once set, top with the remaining chocolate mixture (first melting the mixture again over low heat if it has solidified to room temperature). Freeze another ten minutes to set solid.
Carefully remove the parchment lining shell by lifting the whole thing up holding each side and transferring it parchment and all to a plate. Slice with a sharp knife and serve.

-3/4 cup semi-sweet/dark/vegan chocolate chips
-Himalayan Sea Salt

Instructions

Place apricots in a small food processor and process until finely chopped. Then, add in water and puree. At this point it should be like a paste. Add in shredded coconut and cashew meal and pulse until combined.
Scoop about 1 tablespoon of apricot coconut mixture and roll into ball (it should be a bit sticky). Place on a piece of parchment paper. Repeat 15 more times or until all of the mixture has been used.
Next, melt chocolate. Place 3/4 cup of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about a minute. Stir. If need be- place the chocolate back in the microwave for an addition 20 seconds and mix again until smooth.

Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Cookies



Ingredients

3 ripe bananas, mashed (1 heaping cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tablespoons coconut oil, partially melted.
2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1/4 cup peanut flour
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1 teaspoon baking powder
OPTIONAL- 1/4 tablespoons coconut sugar, organic cane sugar, or brown sugar
OPTIONAL: dark chocolate chips
OPTIONAL: Protein Frosting (2T protein powder + 1/2T almond butter + almond milk (add until you hit your desired consistency)

Instructions

First, preheat oven to 350F and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Then, in a large bowl, mash 3 bananas. You'll want your bananas to be very thin and runny. Next, add in vanilla, peanut butter, and coconut oil.
Add in quick cooking oatmeal, peanut flour, ground flax seed, and baking powder, and mix until combined. At this point, I suggest tasting the batter. Don't worry, there's no eggs, this batter is completely edible! If you'd like, add in 1/4 cup of your choice of sweetener, do it now. I opted not to do this because I personally don't like super sweet cookies. You can also add chocolate chips, too Very Happy
Next, spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into your palm. Roll into a ball and place on cookie sheet. Then press into a cookie shape. These cookies wont rise or expand much. Repeat.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until they begin to brown.

Marshmallow Cream Cake



Ingredients

Crust:

1 cup dry quinoa
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut sugar

Mint layer:

1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours then rinsed
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/6 cup coconut sugar
1/6 cup fresh mint leaves
1-2 teaspoons spirulina powder, as desired
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoon chia seeds

Vanilla layer:

1 1/6 cups raw cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours then rinsed
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/6 cup coconut sugar
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pink layer:

1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours then rinsed
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/6 cup coconut sugar
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup red beet, peeled and sliced thinly

Preparation

To make the crust:

Rinse the quinoa for a minute under cold water. Grind the quinoa into very fine flour in a high speed blender, then in a bowl, mix together the flour with the coco oil and sugar until you get a dough-like mixture. Press into the bottom of a cake pan. I used an adjustable cake pan set to around 7 inches across. Put in the fridge.

To make each layer:

Simply blend all the ingredients – except the chia seeds – in each list together until smooth, then stir in the chia seeds at the end. The texture before adding the chia seeds should be like yogurt. If any of them are too thick, add 1 or 2 more tablespoons of water. If too thin, add more cashews or coconut oil. Pour in the green layer over your crust, then white, then pink. I sprinkled mine with white sesame seeds and more chia seeds.
Keep the cake in the fridge for 24 hours so the flavors can get to know each other. It’s easiest to slice when it’s been in the freezer for about 40 minutes before cutting.

New York Style 'Cheesecake'



Calories
360.6
Ingredients

Crust:

1 1/2 cups oat flour (use certified gluten-free if needed)
4 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or agave
3 tablespoons melted coconut butter (NOT coconut oil!)
1 1/2 tablespoons apple juice or water
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Cake:

1 cup melted coconut butter (NOT coconut oil!)
3/4 cup coconut milk (either homemade raw version or use canned low fat light coconut milk)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or agave, room temp
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Preparation

First, prepare the crust by adding the oats to a food processor (or use storebought oat flour) and process into a fine flour. I add 2 cups of oats and process for 2 minutes until it is finely ground. Measure out 1 1/2 cups and add to a bowl.
Add the remaining “crust” ingredients and stir until a crumbly, wet texture forms. Line an 8 inch cake pan with plastic wrap, with it hanging over the sides. You can spray the pan first with nonstick spray and the plastic wrap will hold in place. (8 inch is best for a taller cake) Press the dough into the bottom of the lined cake pan, evenly and flat around to the edges. Place in the fridge.
To prepare the cake, melt your coconut butter to a complete liquid. It is important that it is a runny liquid when measuring, so the right texture is achieved. Make sure to measure it out at 1 cup after melted. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the milk, syrup, lemon juice, vanilla and whisk until smooth. Stir in the cinnamon and salt. Now, pour in the melted coconut butter and whisk with a fork (works better than a spoon) until smooth and is thick like cake batter. Pour the batter into the prepared crust and place in the fridge to completely set. 1-2 hours should do it.
Once set, just pull the cake out with the plastic wrap and slice. Top with coconut cream, cinnamon and strawberries, if desired. Keep cake stored in the fridge covered and it will retain the perfect shape that way.

Coconut Mango Pops




Serves
6
Ingredients

1 Can Coconut Cream or coconut milk. (14 oz or 1¾ cups)
1 Ripe Mango
¼ Cup Sugar
¼ Cup Shredded Coconut
1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
⅓ Cup Coconut Oil
½ Cup Rum (Optional but way more fun)

Preparation

Warm coconut cream and sugar on the stove on low, stirring until sugar has dissolved. If you use liquid sugar like agave, you can skip this step.
Chop up mango and stir into coconut mix.
Mix in all but a small amount of the coconut to garnish with later.
Stir in rum!
Pour into molds and freeze.
Have a rum and coke while you wait.
Once frozen prepare chocolate shell. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in microwave or in a glass bowl resting over steaming water on the stove. Sir constantly until chocolate is smooth.
Let chocolate cool down until no longer hot. Warm is ok.
Pour chocolate into a cup large enough to dip popsicles.
Remove 1 pop at a time from tray and dip into chocolate. Chocolate will harden quickly, so add a sprinkle of coconut right when you pull them out of the chocolate.
Place pop on wax paper or a plate.
Repeat with all pops!
Eat right away, or place in a freezer proof container and save for later!

Ingredients

1 15 oz. can of black beans, drained and rinsed
5 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter (or any nut butter)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
12 toothpicks/cake pops/straws (optional)
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips

Preparation

In a food processor, combine the black beans, cacao powder, sunflower butter, maple syrup and sea salt. Pulse and process for a couple minutes, until the mixture is well combined and doughy. The dough will not be sticky, just gooey and fudgy.
Roll the dough into 12 balls (approximately 2 tablespoons each) and place on a lined baking sheet. Pop in a toothpick/cake pop/straw (optional). Place in the refrigerator to chill for 15-20 minutes.
Melt the chocolate (over the stove or in the microwave) and with a spoon, pour the melted chocolate over the brownie pops until covered.
Top with your favorite toppings: mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, sprinkles etc. Place back in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to set.
Enjoy!
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep fresh.

Chocolate Brownie and Peanut Butter Parfait


Chocolate mousse:

1/2 ripe avocado

Splash of nut milk (I use oat milk but feel free to use what you have; rice, non-GMO soy or almond milk are great too)
1 small handful of walnuts

Additional Ingredients:

Optional – 1 heaped tablespoon of organic & natural peanut butter (check the ingredients, you don’t want anything else than peanuts in your peanut butter)
Optional - 1 pinch of unrefined sea salt (if your peanut butter is unsalted)
1 serving coconut whipped cream (just blend a refrigerated can of coconut cream with some vanilla powder and your favorite sweetener)

Toppings:

Raw pecans & pistachios

Banana Pudding Recipe



Ingredients

2/3 cup over-ripe banana, mashed (measure after mashing) (160g)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp coconut butter (45-60g)
1 package MoriNu tofu (Soy-free version: see recipe instructions below)
pinch stevia extract, or 2-4 tbsp sugar of choice (depending on your tastebuds and the banana ripeness)
optional: 1/8 tsp turmeric for a deeper-yellow hue

Instructions

Banana Pudding Recipe: Make sure the coconut butter is melted before you begin. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Makes about 2 cups. (Soy-free version: Omit the tofu, and decrease the coconut butter to 2 tbsp. Decrease the salt to 1/8 tsp. Add 1 cup cashews that have been soaked in water 4-6 hours and drained fully. Vanilla stays the same, and sweeten as desired. Add milk of choice if a thinner pudding is desired.)

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cheese Ball



ngredients

1/4 cup peanut butter or allergy-friendly alternative (60g)
8 oz cream cheese, such as Daiya or Tofutti
2 cups powdered sugar or Sugar-Free Powdered Sugar (300g)
3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (75g)

Instructions

Bring both the cream cheese and peanut butter to room temperature (to a stir-able consistency), then mix together with a spoon in a deep bowl, adding the powdered sugar gradually. Add in the vanilla, and mix until a smooth and even consistency is reached. Spoon onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, then bring the sides up and twist very tightly to form something of a ball shape. Freeze in the coldest part of your freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm enough that the plastic wrap can be removed without the ball falling apart. Place chocolate chips in a large bowl or ziploc bag, then roll the cheeseball until evenly coated with chocolate chips. Freeze until ready to serve (or refrigerate if not serving until the next day). Serve with graham crackers, sliced fruit, or anything else you think goes well with chocolate chips and peanut butter.

Chocolate Pudding and Banana: Magic in 5 Minutes



10 dried dates soaked in warm water for 10 min.
4 bananas
½ avocado
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt

Preparation

Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse a few times until the bananas and avocados are in small pieces.
With a spatula, scrape the sides and then blend for 5 minutes, or until it is the consistency that you like.
Check it out and if you feel you need it to be a little sweeter you can add a little maple syrup.
Put it to the fridge for a few minutes to cool. The longer it cools the richer it gets.
To serve, top with whipped coconut cream, walnuts, almonds, fruit, etc.
