Wild Blueberry Coconut Pudding

Wild blueberries are significantly more nutrient dense than their cultivated cousins and unlike other fruits, maintain their magnificence even frozen.  This pudding took minutes to make and is one of my favorite dishes. This was breakfast today.

Add some bananas and dried coconut for a decadent, delicious, and nutritious treat. As each coconut varies in volume and ratio, meat:water, you’ll have to play it by ear with regard to chia, cashews and additional water, if needed.

Please comment if you made and enjoyed this recipe!

Waffle Cone Ice Cream Rolls

I’m super excited about this new treat!  This does require some preparation, but since they are frozen, you can make a large batch and have them on hand. Ok, I can’t promise they’ll stick around long...but they are worth the love put into preparing them. I served these at my chiropractors’ office and wish I had gotten video of the smiling faces as folks tasted these precious bite-sized delights!  Let’s get started!

Coconut Mango Pudding

Quick and easy, delightful summer treat. Blend, chill, and serve!!!

There are so many variations that are possible. Add wild blueberries, bananas, pineapple, etc. almost anything goes. Add water or almond milk, only as needed. Feel free to switch out maple syrup for a few dates.

I used fresh young Thai coconut meat, but you can use dried unsweetened coconut too. Soak for one hour to rehydrate, drain  and follow recipe. It may not be as creamy and I suggest using almond milk instead of water. I have a video on you tube demonstrating how to open these coconuts. It’s fun and pretty simple. These make great ice pops too!!!

Wild Blueberry Cream Pudding Parfait

Deeeeeelish!!! It’s creamy and light for an enjoyable summer snack.  I can eat this for lunch.

Feel free to use almonds instead of cashews, it won’t be quite as creamy, but still delicious. A great dairy free snack your non vegan friends would never guess did not have milk. Other fruit variations work well too.

Choco Fudge Wafers

I made these lil treats for my grandsons...but I really love them.  I’ve also made them like Oreo cookies with a cream filling....but here’s the simple version.

Adjust ingredients to make more or less sweet. Taste batter as you go along, and adjust.  Like them chewy? Dehydrate around 12 hours. Want them crunchy? Dehydrate at least 24 hours, possibly longer, depending on humidity in your home and other factors. These are delicious.

Perfect Pear Tart

I like this recipe even better than apple pie. With pears in season, the fruit is tender, sweet and juicy! It’s easy to prepare Irish Moss Paste in advance and freeze in cubes. Defrost, and you are ready to go. This recipe is actually pretty quick and easy. Give it a try...and comment below.

Rawfully Tempting Raw Chocolate Fruit and Nut Bark


This was gone gone gone before I could get a good photo. Tempering raw chocolate is possible, but challenging. I'm not a greatchocolatier as I don't have the patience or the equipment, however, I try to attempt manually tempering whenever possible. For a quick..."I don't care about fussing" treat...simple - DO NOT temper. Throw this tastiness together, and store in the refrigerator or freezer. WARNING: It will melt in your hands..so EAT it quickly, or break into smaller, bite-sized pieces. This will cure any junk food craving for sweets!  There are several optional ingredients. I hope you use this blog for educational purposes, so even if you don't choose to use all of the suggested ingredients, you may at least become aware they exist.

Dairy-Free, Raw Ice Cream


Ok! Bad picture! It was evening, and it was metling. I had very little lighting, but wanted to capture it. You'll have to trust me..It was GREAT! Some time back, I did a post on  how to prepare ice cream using a juicer and blank plate. It's been awhile since I pulled out the old Champion...but I'm sooooo glad I did. Last night I literally threw together some Blueberry Banana Coconut Ice Cream. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Blueberry Muffin Tops (Gluten-Free)

Blueberry Muffins have always been a big comfort food in my life. These no-bake, raw vegan treats are well worth the effort. The taste and mouth-feel are outstanding! Now you can have them too!

Apple Walnut Muffins - Gluten-Free

Served warm from the dehydrator, these muffins are very reminiscent of the SAD (Standard American Diet - aka BAKED) version. I didn't make them too sweet, and sunflower seeds can have a little bite, so sweeten according to your taste. I love the "Autumn Spiciness." Drizzle with raw honey, cashew cream, or your favorite fruit "syrup"...oh, and some raw ice cream - HEAVEN!

Sprouted Rum Buckwheat Crunchies



Sprouted Buckwheat Crunchies can be made in almost any flavor...just change the extracts. My favorite flavors are rum and mint, but caramel is yummy too! Use the basic recipe and switch up extracts for variety.  Store these in an airtight container, or glass ball jar in the freezer and always have them on hand.

Chocolate "Peanut Butter" Ice Cream

A good basic chocolate ice cream recipe. This is rich, creamy and very satisfying. Instead of cashews, try pili nuts!!! (Or mix cashews and pili nuts).
Don't have young Thai coconuts? Try Coconut Cream Concentrate and water. Once you get a nice, thick creamy consistency in the blender - follow any of the options for making ice cream and you should have a delicious dessert to share with your loved ones!

(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!

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!

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!

Raw Gingerbread Cookies

What is this magical holiday season without Gingerbread Cookies? Feel free to use this recipe and make Gingerbread Men too! I'm packing these up in gift bags for family and friends, and also taking them for our road trip to visit the GrandPrincess. If you don't have a dehydrator, just freeze them, and eat as is!
