I find that during the first week of the year, I see an awful lot of people (vegans specifically) eating more raw foods. Pictures of juices, salads and interesting dips fill my screen and you can just FEEL the healthiness of it all emanating from the computer. I totally support eating healthier in the New Year, especially after all of those holiday meals, but I know firsthand that after a couple of days you’re going to be craving some sweets and the comfort of warm food.
When those obstacles come up, that is where this recipe comes in. Not only is this recipe raw, it’s full of ingredients that will keep you full after indulging in a slice; unlike most desserts with processed sugar and lots of empty carbohydrates. I’ve made a raw chocolate mousse-like pudding before, but the undertone of avocado was a little strong for those who aren’t used to the idea. I made sure to make this dessert suitable for healthy vegans and not-so-healthy omnivores alike. The more raw desserts that I make, the more delicious they turn out and this was no different. To put it bluntly, I’m in love!
