I love raw desserts. They contain so much goodness, nutrition and flavor, and to top it off, they are easy to make. Try this delicious treat to include at a party, for friends and/or family. Enjoy!

Vegan Apple-Cranberry Barley Pudding

Apple-Cranberry Barley Pudding

Those of you Irish lads and lasses may recall this apple barley pudding from your childhood. My version gets a bit of an update with the addition of dried cranberries and spices and the substitution of nut milk for the heavy cream. Perfect for vegans, this pudding derives its thickness from the pectin in the green apples. The barley also adds a bit of thickness and texture as well as protein and fiber. The fresh lemon juice and relatively small amount of sugar prevent this dessert from being overly sweet. As is typical of traditional Irish cuisine, this rustic pudding is simple and filling.

Smart Sweet: Raw Cinnamon Rolls

Raw Cinnamon Rolls

When I was growing up, almost every Sunday morning my mom would pop cinnamon buns in the oven. As soon as they started to warm up, the smell would drift up to my bedroom and I would jump out of bed, run down the stairs and wait for the buns to finish cooking (see I’ve always had a sweet tooth!). So naturally, since I began my love for raw desserts about three years ago, I have been on the hunt for the perfect raw cinnamon roll. And I came pretty close to finding it!

In the Reboot Kitchen: Spiced Peach-Pear Juice

Spiced Peach-Pear Juice

This juice is a great dessert juice or a fruity start to the day. After spotting heritage yellow carrots at the market, I knew they would be a nice addition to this juice to enhance the color and flavor. The added spices also give this juice an extra kick with a pop of flavor.
