and it's...RAW!!!

Back in November, I went Raw for 20 days. Although I truly enjoyed going Raw, I'm not quite ready to go full force. I do, however, eat plenty Raw Veggies everyday, and enjoy a Raw treat here & there. After finding some Raw goodies at Whole Foods yesterday, I decided to make some of my own.

These are all single serving. Very rich but Oh-So-Good!

Single Serving "Double Dark Chocolate Tart"



~4 tbsp coconut oil

~1 tbsp Raw Agave (or maple syrup)

~1/2 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
Put all ingredients in mini food processor or mix by hand until well blended. Spoon into tart mold (or just smash it flat). Place in freezer to harden.

Creamy Cacao Filling
~1 tbsp coconut oil

~1 tbsp Raw cacao powder

~1 tbsp Raw agave (or maple syrup)

Blend in mini food processor or by hand until smooth and creamy. Remove crust from freezer and spoon in filling. Freeze. Once frozen, remove tart from mold. Enjoy immediately, keep frozen, or refrigerate.

Raw "Chocolate Tart"



~2 tbsp Raw cashew flour

~2 tbsp Raw almond flour

~1 tbsp Raw agave (or maple syrup)

~1/4 tsp Vanilla extract (Raw, if you can find it)


~Use "Creamy Cacao Filling" recipe from above.

Note: make your own cashew and almond flour by processing in food processor till finely ground (my juicer grinds nuts so I made mine that way).

Here's the inspiration for my Raw Goody making.
This one was refrigerated, not frozen, so the texture was amazing! If your freezing yours... make sure to let them thaw out so you can experience the texture.

Hail Merry, Merry's Miracle Tart. I liked this Raw Goody so much, I had to pose with it!

The original

I also made...

Raw "Coconut Cacao Bar"

~1 tbsp fig puree (measure after processing)

~1 tbsp Raw almond flour

~1 tbsp Raw coconut oil

~1 tbsp dried shredded coconut

~1 tbsp Raw cashew flour

~1/2 tbsp Raw agave (or maple syrup)

~1/2 tbsp Raw cacao

Put all ingredients in mini food processor until well blended. Shape into bar and freeze or refrigerate.

Had a great time at Whole Foods! As I've Explained Before, I LOVE this place! Lookie at what the salad bar had for me!

Yes, that's Raw Corn Salad on my plate! Raw Food is really gaining recognition! I love that people are finally getting it. What we put into our bodies is SUPER important!
