Alex's Raw Chocolate Pudding

Rating: 4.49 stars
It may seem odd to have a banana and avocado in the same recipe, but the banana completely hides any taste of the avocado. The avocado is there simply for texture and nutritional value. Even my kids love this recipe! You can use any unsweetened milk in this recipe - almond, soy, rice, or coconut - and for a little crunch, use raw cocoa nibs instead of the cocoa powder.

Fruity Fun Skewers

Rating: 4.83 stars
I was looking for a different way to serve fruit, and it just popped into my head! Why not use fruit skewers?

Avocado Mango Salsa

Rating: 4.76 stars
Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!

Raw Brownies

Rating: 4.24 stars
These are no-bake brownies that have carob powder instead of cocoa. They're much healthier than regular brownies. Good for hyperactive children and very easy to make.

Cool and Spicy Melon Soup

Rating: 4.67 stars
Melon soup is one of our favorite hot weather refreshers. But add some freshly grated ginger and coconut milk and turn melon soup into a fall classic. Top with unsweetened toasted coconut.

Sun-dried Tomatoes II

Rating: 5 stars
Cherry tomatoes are easily dried in a food dehydrator. When I make soup or stew I throw in a handful, and they taste like they were just picked. You could also rehydrate them in warm water for some other use.

Raw Candy

Sweet treats with no added sugar! Unfired fare that is all natural and vegan!

Taco Slaw

Rating: 4.49 stars

Fresh Orange Juice

Rating: 4.44 stars

In response to a request about how to make fresh squeezed orange juice. It takes a little work, but it tastes much better than orange juice from concentrate.
