Love is in the air, can you feel it?!
Valentine's day is a whole FIVE days away, and I'll let you in on a little secret.... homemade tasty vegan food is a great way into anybody's heart! <3
But I'll let you in on another little secret.. a RAW VEGAN (mostly oil free) and refined sugar free DESSERT is an even *BETTER* way into somebody's heart. 😛
Trust me. I've tested this hypothesis with babe, family and friends... and everybody loves a good raw vegan dessert.
To make your life a little easier, and to save you from any last minute panicking you might be bound to doing, you little procrastinator you (speaking to myself, mostly) I've gathered THIRTY (30), RAW VEGAN DESSERTS for you that are mostlyyy OIL free and definitely refined sugar free.
Not only are these raw vegan desserts healthier for you than anything you'll find in a store this week, but these desserts are beautiful and SCREAM 'I love you'. They're also all pretty easy to make with a bunch of them requiring less than 10 ingredients, or less than 30 minutes of your time. #vdaywinning
PS. It's so much more affordable to make YOUR own homemade raw vegan dessert than buying one at a store or bakery, especiallyyyy around Vday. And it's more romantic too.
PSS. If you're still looking for a vegan main entree for your Vday dinner - you might like my Raw Vegan Romaine Lettuce Tacos, they're raw, vegan, oil free, and so so pretty to look at!
All right friends, enjoy these tasty recipes and if you do make any I'd love to hear from you or see a picture. Remember to tag us on instagram at @sproutingzeneats or use the hashtag #sproutingzeneats !
VALENTINE'S DAY INSPIRED
RAW VEGAN DESSERTS
Can anyone really ever resist a cute cake pop? I think not. These are pretty, and easy, and tasty. Eat them as pops, or forget the sticks and serve them as cake bites. A much healthier alternative to traditional cake pops.
Anthea from Rainbow Nourishments always has *theeee* best dessert recipes. Check out this delicioussss chocolatey brownie tart. It might look complicated, but it's not! Plus, there's a video along with the recipe so that you can see how easy it is to make. Seriously this cake, tart, pie whatever you want to call it - screams I LOVE YOU! 🙂
Learn how to make these yummy truffles which are the perfect finger food for Valentine's Day. This is such a flexible recipe that allows you to add your own touches to make it extra special.
Whoaaa! Guys and Gals... this right here is everything. Check this cake out! And it's RAW. Don't be intimidated, it's a lot easier to make than it looks. You will need some beet pulp though, which means you probably need a juicer...
Only three ingredients and ONE step! It can't get easier than this. If your Valentines is a coffee/strawberry/ice cream lover, surprise them with this sweet easy treat.
In case you didn't know, semifreddo is a type of semi-frozen dessert that is usually made with eggs, sugar and cream. But fear not! This semifreddo is totally vegan and made with wholesome ingredients. Refined sugar free and refined oil free too!
Yum!! This recipe is a two in one - learn how to make a delicious strawberry cream AND a yummy cacao pecan crunch to go along with it. *This recipe does require tofu so it is not strictly raw, but it is 'no bake' and requires no cooking!
Valentine's day WITHOUT chocolate just doesn't make any sense, does it?! Forget the store bought stuff which is usually filled with 'who-knows-what' ingredients and make your own. I should mention this recipe does call for cacao butter, which is essentially an oil.. so I wouldn't call this one oil free BUT, I'm including it because... It's Valentine's day and this option is still probably so much healthier than what you'll find at the stores anyway! It is refined sugar free though 😉
And that's a wrappp! 30 awesome tasty raw vegan desserts for Valentine's day (or any day reallyyy). So pick one or two, and make some for a friend, or your loved one, or your mom.
And remember beauties - it doesn't have to be 'Valentine's day' for you to show love to someone. It's a made up holiday anyway. Show those you care about that you love them, each and every day, but a little more on Vday of course 😛
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
