“[A] wheat-, gluten-, dairy-, and processed-sugar free collection of raw confections to die for. Most of Desserts’ recipes are fast, easy, and have no more than six ingredients, often fewer. It almost feels like cheating to be able to create tasty, intricate, and stylish treats without going through chef training.”
“Phyo's second book focuses on the sweeter side of raw with 85 recipes (Almond Frangipane Kream and Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake, anyone?) that will have your sweet tooth clamoring for more.”
Feminist Review, 8/18/09
"Ani's Raw Food Desserts is a surprising and satisfying tour of the possibilities of raw dessert preparation. Raw food connoisseurs and novices alike will find new favorite snacks and treats among Phyo’s imaginative creations.”
Oxygen, December 2009 “These raw-food sorbets, cakes and cookies use clean-eating staples such as nuts and fruit to satisfy your child’s cravings and your health-conscious mind.”

The most surprising part of these recipes is how EASY and QUICK they are to make! I mean, you have directions like "Combine agave nectar, cacao powder, and coconut oil in a mixing bowl. Add nuts. Pour onto a tray lined with wax paper and chill for 5 - 10 minutes." HOW EASY IS THAT?! Anyway, great book! I'm buying another copy for my mom for Mother's Day.
The contents are divided into categories that I find very easy to navigate, and my favourite thing though is that below the recipe title, she has little pictures of tools you will need in order to make that recipe. This is very helpful to glance and know if you are able to make it or not (for example the first recipe of the Pineapple Icebox Dessert has images of a food processor, a blender, and a loaf pan.) So its nice to glance and know if you have the tools/time to make something.
I wish every recipe had a picture, although I do understand it was likely done due to a size limitation from the publisher I can only assume. I would recommend this book especially to people who are new to raw foods, as it does not come across as overwhelming and its very user friendly.
I've always been a fan of desserts- and the dessert recipes in most raw food cookbooks are things like mixed berries in syrup. (Meh.) This one is different. The "liquid Chocolate" turns anything cold into candy; the ice creams are creamy and delicious; the truffles and fudge are worthy of gift giving.
I'm hooked. I had chocolate covered bananas for dinner last night, and key lime ice cream for breakfast this morning!
As for desserts, all the recipes are great. Lots of ideas for combinations and recipes for simple essentials like different sauces you can add on anything you want. Everything I've made so far has been delicious and completely satisfies my sweet tooth without me feeling guilty!
