Though I am neither a raw-foodie nor vegan, www.thisrawsomeveganlife.com has won my heart and soul.
I happened upon the site when I was looking on Pinterest for healthier desserts and I saw one of the webmaster’s divine chocolate dessert photos.
She posts lots of easy recipes, from sauces and puddings to cakes and ice creams. She also has lots of delicious entree, salad and snack bar recipes.
I’ve made more of her recipes than I can count, but my favorites have been fudgy brownies, vanilla coffee creme pie and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
I also love her sea salt caramel recipe. I’ve dipped fruit in it, slathered it on bananas and eaten it straight out of the bowl with a spoon.
She has a knack for making delicious desserts out of avocados — don’t knock it until you try it. I made her chocolate pudding recipe and it was incredible. I ate it for breakfast.
Also, Emily’s photography is stunning. Sometimes I get on her blog just to drool over pictures of cakes dripping in frosting, chocolate sauce and coconut shreds.
One visit to her site and you’ll know what I mean. Emily uses ingredients like almonds, cashews, dates, honey, pumpkin seeds and coconut oil to make her recipes.
Everything that comes from her kitchen is loaded with nutrients.
The only downside to that is even a simple cake is pretty expensive to make.
Still, it’s fun to browse her site. I got one of her cookbooks as a Christmas present and my life hasn’t been the same since.
She is so creative and has lots of recipes — some more outlandish than others.
Lavender cheesecake with lemon and honey, mango coconut tarts and funky monkeys are a few foods on the weirder side, but I would totally give them a shot.
You, munching on the Cheetos. Do yourself a favor. Check out thisrawsomeveganlife.com right now.
