Raw Strawberry Shortcake

Vegan Strawberry Shortcake
This decadent recipe will go over well with any crowd, regardless of dietary preference. If you're not cool with using coconut nectar as your sweetener, you can soak dates or dried mulberries in a little drinking water and then blend the water and dried fruit together to get a thick syrup which can be used as your sweetener. For a dry sweetener, you can try pure pomegranate powder, but watch out, pomegranate powder will make your dish deliciously tart!

Raw Sweet Potato Soup

This raw soup recipe is ideally made with a powerful Vitamix. If you don't have a Vitamix, you can either blender the sweet potatoes for a long time by themselves with water in an ordinary blender, or you can try your food processor or you can cook the sweet potatoes first. The other option, of course, is to have a somewhat crunchy soup.

Raw Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread
This banana bread recipe requires a dehydrator, but don't despair – you can make this without dehydrating. Just substitute out the roughly chopped carrots for three cups of carrot pulp (the leftovers from making carrot juice) instead. If you don't have a juicer to make carrot juice, grate the carrots and then squeeze them in a nutmilk-bag to extract as much moisture as possible.
Make this recipe in your food processor instead of your blender. Do not add any water. After blending, and pulsing in the raisins, walnuts and sesame seeds: Press into a ceramic dish and put in your fridge to firm up for a few hours. Slice and serve.

Raw Vegan Deviled "Eggs"

This fun and surprising recipe utilizes squash as an egg-white-replacement. This is a great and healthy recipe just as it is, but there is definite wiggle room for getting creative. For added color, try mincing red, orange and green bell peppers and sprinkling them on top.

Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Raw Vegan Brownies
This easy brownie recipe can be made in just five minutes. There is a bit of a typo in the recipe where it says "cocoa powder" which isn't raw. Make sure you get raw cacao powder which has a less bitter flavor and more nutrition. Also, when seeking vanilla, try purchasing raw vanilla powder which is just pure powdered vanilla bean with no added sweeteners, alcohol, glycerin or other unwanted additives.

Apple & Date Haroset

This traditional recipe contains wine. If you're not a drinker you can make some fresh squeezed juice at home as a substitute. Grapefruit juice, pineapple juice and grape juice will all work.

Raw Vegan Asian Red Pepper & Asparagus Spring Pasta

Raw Vegan Pasta
This Asian-tasting recipe is great for holiday dinners, ethnic-themed potlucks and Easter celebrations. If you don't have access to kelp noodles or prefer zucchini noodles, then you can user your spiralizer to make zucchini noodles instead. If you don't have a spirilizer, you can finely cut zucchini with a basic knife or mandolin.
