Recipes /


How to make a raw, vegan and gluten-free dessert! When I first started experimenting with raw food, I had no idea where to start. I researched and gradually learned a great amount of information about raw food and still love to experiment with raw food recipes. Especially during summer time! As you know, my practice is all about balance, so I try and include at least 2-3 raw food recipes in my diet once a week. This week, I really wanted to try a raw food dessert recipe, and so I made this beautiful little pie or tart (whichever you prefer). To me, it kind of tasted like a birthday cake. Really! It’s so good and easy to make, you will want to make it again and again. It is healthy indeed, but because of the dry fruits, there is some fat content for sure. But as I said, balance is the key. You can eat anything in moderation and enjoy it.

So, If you ever wanted some simple raw food ideas and recipes, then this treat is the answer to your question. Whether you are trying out raw food, or simply want to experiment with it, this recipe is the way to go, especially if you have a sweet tooth! ­čśë The “Birthday Cake Tart” is so delicious and simple to make. A a good way to include some nutrition rich foods in your diet. Enjoy & be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel for more great videos!
