BBB goes Raw Vegan

Training: Run 5km IMG_5466 Well for a moment at least :) Do you ever come across a recipe that intrigues you so much that you can’t stop thinking about it? You print it off, keep it in your diary, and at the first opportunity, find yourself buying all the necessary ingredients. Well this happens to me. A lot. But one recipe in particular caught my attention a while back. Raw Cashew Dreamcake. The layers, the interesting ingredients, the no-cooking required. Oh and not to mention the cute name 😉 IMG_5477 There were so many things I loved about this dessert. IMG_5482 I loved the layers, IMG_5473 Which not only were visually rewarding, IMG_5467 But also provided a nice contrast of tastes. IMG_5497 The date / almond base was in one word: delicious. IMG_5481 The white layer was sweet and creamy… IMG_5478 While the vibrant pink layer was sweet and tart from the fresh raspberries. IMG_5479 And the flavour…delicious! IMG_5489 Sure, it was not the same flavour of regular cheesecake. But, given it isn’t regular cheesecake, why would it!? I am happy to report that Mr BBB was not a fan however. IMG_5468   IMG_5470            And why do I say ‘happy’?? IMG_5495 Because it meant there was more for me! Head over to this blog for the recipe! What about you? Have you tried raw vegan ‘baking’? I am always open to trying new dishes and new cooking styles – it keeps things interesting! Happy Baking :)

  1. With Amy and I just having moved to a mainly vegan diet (we'll eat our own chicken eggs) I was trying to find a nice desert to make for Valentine's Day. Trust Lisa to come to the rescue :-). Thanks so much.

  2. Hmm, I think you know the answer to that! I love my raw vegan brownies, cookie dough balls, marzipan… and I have a fancier raw dessert to post too, although now I feel I MUST MAKE THIS!!!

  3. I've never tried raw vegan baking, but I have done raw cooking before. I convinced the husband to eat zucchini "noodles" with a raw sauce for dinner over the summer. I thought it was delicious, but he said it wasn't filling.

  4. I'm a bit with Mr BBB – the raw vegan "desserts" I've tasted have looked wonderful but been a bit underwhelming, perhaps because I've been expecting a "real" cheesecake taste! However, I don't want to sound too negative here because your dish looks amazing. I had a look at the ingredients and well, I'd be just happy nibbling at that base all day!

  5. I love it when a non vegan or raw food *foodie* makes one of these recipes & yep, I'b be intrigued with it too, it looks really inviting & fresh & just a little bit fun too. Thanks for the review :)

  6. looks amazing – I love cashews and nuts so this sort of thing appeals – have bookmarked it for the right occasion though I probably should practise for it

  7. I think I posted this same exact recipe on my blog! I am new to raw "baking" as well…but i've quickly become a HUGE fan (okay…maybe obsessed). It's so easy, fun, delicious, and healthy! Welcome to the club:)
