Three Yummy Desserts

Coconut Ice Kream with Strawberry Sauce

This is a luscious ice creamy dessert from Ani Phyo's Raw Desserts book. Even if you don't have a favorite "raw" dessert, go ahead a post your favorite dessert anyway! It's like they say with the lottery: you can't win if you don't play :-).

And the strawberry sauce is mine. It's just strawberries and agave blended in a food processor. That's all you need for a heavenly sauce.

Chocolate Cake with Non-Dairy/Gluten-Free Icing
This is a vegan chocolate cake I made for my family. I'm still playing with the recipe, and I would prefer to post a gluten-free option that tastes not gluten-free. But the icing I came up with seriously rocked the house.

Non-Dairy Chocolate Frosting
1/2 cup non-dairy margarine, softened, but not melted
1 cup powdered confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 -1/4 teaspoon sea salt, start with 1/8
Beat the margarine in a food processor until creamy. Add all the other ingredients and beat until mixed and smooth. Makes enough for one 8x8 cake. Double or triple the recipe to frost a two-layer cake.

Raw Apple Crisp Redux 2
From my Raw Mocha Angel Class:
Apple Crisp
8 apples cubed & peeled
½ cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch to ¼ teaspoon cardamom
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Mix the spices together and pour over the apples. Let marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.

Icing
4 cups of cashews
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons agave nectar
Water JUST TO THE TOP of the cashews.

Blend until smooth. You want it creamy and THICK.

Top the apples with your favorite raw granola. Put the icing on top of that and you've got one heck of a dessert.
Enjoy!
Love,
Althea
