(Gluten Free) Coconut Zebra -Striped Cookies

What started out as an attempt to modify a macaroon, turned into a delicious, crunchy coconut almond cookie. These cookies are very light, a little dry, and as crunchy as you want - Just dehydrate them longer. Want them chewy? Pop cookies  in freezer and don't dehydrate at all, or dehydrate for a couple of hours to set the chocolate stripes. Change up the extracts and you can prepare these in almost any variety. Fabulous from bowl to plate or dehydrator to dish. You decide!

(Dairy Free - Raw Vegan) Chocolate Rum-Caramel Ripple Ice Cream

This is NOT a picture of this recipe, but an earlier recipe I made. Every time I make this recipe, it gets eaten so fast, we never get a good picture - so use your imaginations. BUT THIS RECIPE is a RAWfully Tempting favorite!!!

(Dairy Free) Chocolate Covered Strawberry-Cheesecake Pudding Parfait

Okay, so I'm on a pudding parfait roll...Can you blame me? Pudding has always been one of my favorite treats, and raw vegan pudding is just exquisite! I get bored with the same thing over and over, so I keep changing up ingredients. For all of you that really want to make pudding, but don't have access to young Thai coconuts,  I used Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream instead. Yes, it turned out as tasty as it looks and definitely thickens as it chills and the coconut cream starts to set. Your family and friends will LOVE you for making this for them!

Classic Raw Vegan Chocolate-Vanilla Pudding Parfait

I've published several pudding/mousse variations, but here is the BASIC recipe which can be modified in so many ways. Don't like cashews? Add more coconut meat and chia seeds. Dislike chocolate? Add frozen fruit and/or extracts. Instead of Vanilla Pudding, add caramel, butterscotch or rum extracts. Instead of Chocolate Pudding, add hazelnut, almond, or coffee extracts.

You all know what a fan of Medicine Flower extracts I am. Right now they are Certified Organic, cold extracted, and super concentrated. If you have not tried them, I highly suggest you check them out. Mention "Rawfully Tempting" in Shipping comments and get a Free Bonus Sample!

Pecan-Sunflower Seed Milk - Milk Does a Body Good

If you have not explored making your own nut milk, please consider doing so. It is very simple, does not take a lot of time, and is extremely delicious and satisfying!

Tired of almond milk? Try mixing other nuts and seeds. Today I used pecans, sunflower seeds, dates and vanilla extract. It was fabulous!

Banana Nut Flatbread - January 2014 Newsletter

I've made quite a few flatbreads over the years, but to date, this is my all time favorite. It's so tasty, that you don't need to put anything on it. However, add some nut butter or raw cheese and sliced apples, for a really special treat! These are great for any road trip, and I plan on taking them with me to the Living Raw Expo in LA! I hope you enjoy this recipe. Please sign up for our barely monthly Newsletter so you don't miss any upcoming recipes.

Chocolate - Butterscotch Mousse Parfait

One of my favorite dessert recipes ever! I make so many different variations of this and rarely ever measure. The recipe below is just a base, but you can make this in almost any flavor using extracts and things like mesquite, lucuma, macca, fruit, etc. This is one of my favorite combinations!. I hope you enjoy it too!

Want a lighter body? Use less cashews and more coconut meat. Easy to switch up and change consistency. Sometimes, I hardly use any cashews at all.

Sorry for the poor pic, but this did not last long enough to get my camera out!

Coconut Curry and Lemongrass Soup

This quick and easy soup was a delight to create, and loved by all. Serve lightly warmed, room temperature, or chilled. Select from several garnishes, or choose your own. If you don't like ginger, eliminate it. If you want it spicier, add more red chilli powder. Because it is so rich, this soup makes a tasty side, served with salad.

Butterscotch - Rum Ripple Ice Cream

This is by far one of my all time favorite ice cream recipes. A friend told me that if I continued to make this for him, he'd give up Ben & Jerry's forever! The photo pictured is for visual only. Everyone ate it so fast, I never got a photo! This recipe is definitely enhanced using Medicine Flower extracts. If you don't have them, feel free to use an alternative, but these are the BEST. This ice cream is amazing! A little goes a long way, but you might want to double this. I served 6 small portions, but it was plenty!
