Homemade Sesame Milk + Sesame Fig Bliss Balls

Have you ever tried making homemade nut or seed milk? If you do, I am pretty sure you will never ever go back to those store-bought cartons! I used to think that making my own nut/seed milk would be quite a time-consuming process. Boy, was I wrong! The only issue there is that you need to [...]

Blueberry Lemon Ice Cream Cake (V,GF)

By | 2017-04-01T22:41:25+00:00 April 1st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

I made this raw, vegan, and gluten-free ice cream cake a while back and totally forgot about posting the recipe! For some reason, at the time I made it, all I could think about in terms of colors were yellow and purple! Not sure if you're also like me where each of your days has [...]

No-Bake Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-25T08:31:12+00:00 March 25th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Soft, chewy, zesty, with a hint of orange and chunks of dark chocolate. That's how these no-bake cookies taste in a nutshell. Baking is not my favorite thing to do. It's rather difficult for me to stick to the exact ingredients and measurements since I tend to play around with recipes all the time. That's [...]

By | 2017-03-23T16:45:55+00:00 March 20th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Main, Snacks|

Monday, March 20th, marked the first day of spring and Persian new year! In Persian culture, we have beautiful meaningful traditions to celebrate new year and the arrival of spring, a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. We prepare a cute spread called "Haft-Seen", meaning seven-'S', that consists of seven items starting with the letter 'S' in Farsi. [...]

Healthy Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-14T09:49:25+00:00 March 14th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Soft, chewy, decadent... but best of all healthy. That's how I would describe these little bites of heaven that are guaranteed to satisfy the strongest chocolate cravings! Chocolate cravings often stem from hormonal imbalances and deficiency in magnesium. Raw cacao is one of the top 10 sources of magnesium and is also high in disease-fighting antioxidants. [...]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Fudge Bites (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-07T10:46:33+00:00 March 7th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Peanut butter and jelly... A magical combo that reminds most people of their childhood. Not me! I didn't grow up with it. In fact, I think I was in my early teenage years when I first tried peanut butter and I didn't like it at all! My sister brought me a jar as a souvenir from [...]

Blueberry Coconut Bars (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-04T09:11:07+00:00 March 4th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

This past week I've been strangely attracted to purple foods! So when thinking about whipping up a dessert, I immediately thought about including blueberries. I used simple ingredients I had on hand, such as walnuts, dates, and coconut flakes, in addition to the blueberries. I love raw recipes as they are very forgiving when it [...]

Chocolate Orange Mousse Tart (V,GF)

By | 2017-02-27T19:20:29+00:00 March 1st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

It's no mystery that chocolate and orange are a match made in heaven! So I thought it was about time to bring them together in a healthy raw treat. Ever since the start of the citrus season I've been stuffing my face with all kinds of different citrus fruits. Oranges, blood oranges, grapefruit, sweet lemon, [...]

Chocolate Coconut Cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache (V,GF)

By | 2017-02-21T18:55:46+00:00 February 21st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

I made this chocolate coconut cake last week based on a recipe from Paula Lyon's new cookbook, The Works, and it turned out to be every bit as delicious as her beautiful photos in the book portrayed. It's light and airy, and tastes like a rich chocolatey banana bread with a slight hint of my favorite [...]
