When it’s National Donut Day, there’s only one thing I can think of doing…make raw donuts, of course! The last time I made raw donut holes, I went with a simple cinnamon flavor. They are still one of my absolute favorite desserts to make because they are so simple, so delicious and so similar to the donut holes I used to eat growing up.
Well today, I decided to get a little “richer” with the flavors. Before I stepped foot into the Reboot kitchen, I was deciding between two flavors: chocolate with vanilla cream or a vanilla with strawberry cream. I decided to ask my boss what she thought and she had the brilliant idea for me to do chocolate with strawberry cream! It’s always a Reboot team effort when we make new favorites in the kitchen. We have taste testers, help with the photographs, help with the clean up — it’s the best.
Her strawberry and chocolate idea was a great call, because once I was finished putting this and that together to make them just right, the final result was a decadent, dark chocolate taste with a sweet vegan, strawberry cream filling, making it a perfect combo of flavors. And when I say cream, don’t think heavy, dairy-based full fat cream, think of our sweet cashew cream recipe I always love to use in our Smart Sweet recipes, except this time, I added strawberries. I could have had ten spoonfuls of just the cream, but I kept it to about 6 (oops).
If you’re feeling like celebrating today, but don’t want eat a standard donut that has zero nutrients, make this! I think you’ll love it.
Enjoy your decadent dessert and Happy National Donut Day!
