I couldn't wait for this book to come out. This cookbook is amazing and I'm not even vegan or raw. My husband flips through the pages at night on his eReader and says, "What are we going to make this weekend?!" and "Can we make this one?? OH! Nevermind. Can we make THIS one?!"
These days we have to make double batches of everything and we limit ourselves to one piece of dessert a night (each). In the evenings on the way home from work, we often say, "Oh! We've got dessert in the fridge!" And we sometimes are known to eat dessert while making dinner.
I ordered the ebook because I was dying to have it, but will now go back and order the paper copy just for ease of use. I own many cookbooks, but this one gets 10 times the use of any other.
I was introduced to Emily's blog through a raw-food friend and after a few months of browsing her posts, I decided to try one of the recipes. From the first bite I was HOOKED.
Why I love her recipes:
1. I love that they are healthy. I had blood sugar issues and rarely have sweets. If I do, my blood sugar and weight jumps easily. However, eliminating sweets entirely has been hard. Having said that, the sugars in these desserts don't seem to be a problem for me. My blood sugar will spike after I eat, but not as high and quickly will come back down. And the desserts taste just as sweet as a traditional dessert (sometimes sweeter). How is this possible?! Because they are natural sugars maybe?? There's no processed food in the recipes. No dairy. So nice!
2. There's no baking! I LOVE this. I can make 3 recipes in the time it would take me to make one traditional dessert. No matter what dessert I try, it takes me 20 minutes.
3. I find it easy to substitute things. If I'm low on maple syrup, easy. I use can use sugar or honey (not vegan, I know) or coconut nectar. The desserts taste the same and all have the same basic components.
3. There's no cleaning pans because there's no baking. Cleaning up usually involves only my food processor (which can be put in the dishwasher) and putting back ingredients. NICE!! Now, if you've ever baked, you know cleaning up alone can take 20-30 minutes. And it's usually when I'm cleaning pans that I think, "Wow this is a ton of work!"
4. I love that she uses a lot of the same core ingredients. Coconut milk, dates, nuts, cacoa, coconut oil. I stock those in large supply - they all have a long shelf life - and you will find you have almost all the ingredients you need for most of the recipes.
5. The desserts are SOOO good. I haven't found one that I haven't loved. My husband and I will often say, "Wow, if this was served at a restaurant, it would be our favorite restaurant EVER!" I have honestly never had food that tastes this good. I think it's due to the richness of the whole foods used in each dessert. Making a crust out of cashews, maple syrup and cacoa. Look out. I can't believe how good it tastes. I was shocked at the flavors. But in the beginning I was skeptical. Ground up pecans for a crust taste NOTHING like whole pecans (I don't really care for whole pecans).
The recipes are so shockingly good, I had to make a dessert just to bring to work for our office of 60 people. They were shocked when I told them what was in the dessert and how good it tasted. It was gone in an hour with weekly requests for more.
My absolute favorite recipe is the very first one - Cashew Coffee Vanilla Creme with Cinnamon Chocolate Crust. If you're short on time, leave off the coffee glaze and it is still to die for! I have this recipe down pat. I can make it in 10 minutes. I will often make triple batches of the crust and freeze it for future use (many recipes require a crust so I will experiment with swapping out recipes crusts just for fun and convenience). This is the dessert I brought to work. Honestly, it is the best dessert I ever made in my life (and I am always making desserts for parties, neighbors and the office). It puts a boxed brownie mix to shame.
I don't think I'll ever make a traditional box dessert again. Why would you?!
Excellent job, Emily! I am a huge fan!
However, I do admit to a significant sweet tooth with chocolate being one of my all time favorite things, so when I saw this book, I was intrigued enough to read more...and look up Emily's Blog which was amazing! This was all I needed to go ahead and make the purchase, I am so happy I did!
First ; Emily is amazing to have such creativity to develop desserts that are tasty, beautiful and use just raw and mostly healthy ingredients! This book is honestly worth it for the beautiful pictures alone! But also of significant importance is the fact that these desserts are an attainable make for even the most beginner of cooks - and this comes across in a number of ways:
1. The ingredients are not wild, wacky, only from a specialized health store - they are everyday things you can find at most grocery stores.
2. You do not need an arsenal of kitchen appliances to come up with these goodies. A food processor is a must have but most kitchens have these. However I have many raw food books that call for all kinds of gizmos and gadgets., and though my kitchen is well stocked, I do not want to go out and purchase a bunch of random items in order to make a recipe, in fact my food dehydrator was used once and later sold on eBay!!
3. Fruit and veggies are part of these desserts....yes, moms, if you have kids that refuse point blank to eat things such as an avocado...try this book where an avocado becomes chocolate mousse for just one example!
4. Sweet stuff for breakfast...for those who have the ultimate sweet tooth you can start your day off in a sweet way and still be healthy - for example the breakfast parfaits with layers of fruit and chia!! I can tell you that chia, in addition to being so good for you, is really a great energy started prior to a workout and my workouts have becomes better and harder, with chia pudding to begin my day!
5. Snacks - there are a variety of super easy snacks to make that require little to no time, yet are portable such as the coconut bars!
6. Candy...are you a Reese's cup fan or as in my case, an almond joy fan....no need to give them up, as their raw counterparts are right here in this book!
7. Freedom - there are options here to suit your taste. Rather than tell you which sweetening agent to use, as there is debate in this area, she leaves it up to you based on taste and trial which is an excellent idea. She also allows you to pick topping, favorite nut butters etc which make the items personal to you and your taste buds!
8. Simplicity - the recipes, the verbiage, the process is simple, easy and unpretentious!
There are 5 simple sections - cakes and cupcakes, Bites, Bars and Cookies, Pies and Tarts, Puddings and Ice Cream, and Basic Recpies. Something for everyone whether you want a snack on the go, an elegant dessert for a dinner party or something for the kids lunchbox!
It also starts and ends very simply, the book is rather sweetly dedicated to the readers and the back has some simple resources regarding ingredients - your basics you will need are: Nuts and Seeds, Oats and Buckwheat Groats, Dried Fruits (especially dates). Liquid Sweeteners., Coconut Oil and Cacao/Carob. Then Equipment and substitutions.
I love it and I think this will be a winner for anyone not just those looking to lead a raw lifestyle!
