A special someone in my life had a birthday last friday, and of course, that called for a celebratory dessert. If you love cheesecake, but are avoiding dairy and/or animal products, or you’re just looking for a way to eat cheesecake on a daily basis, this raw vegan dessert is the answer. It’s dreamy, creamy and positively ambrosial. (Not to mention, easy! In fact, it’s simple enough to make on a weekly basis, which I’m totally going to do.)
I've also decided to dedicate this post to discussing something I feel very passionate about: the Earth and the impact we have on it.
Ravin’ About Raspberries
The health benefits of raspberries are something to get excited about. A member of the antioxidant-packed berry family, these ruby-hued flavour bombs are a true superfood.
I've called this dessert, "revitalizing," as I hope it does just that, revitalize. Spring is a time to reawaken; to embrace change and new life; and to welcome the abundance of delicious fresh foods that are soon to be popping up from the ground, along with the little green buds that are coming soon to a tree near you. April is a month of change in the weather, the sky and the gardens. It's finally warm enough now to comfortably stand outside and look at that incredible blanket of stars and the balancing, big ol' moon.
April also plays host to Earth Day, which is the perfect time to do something nice for the planet and all of the creatures on it -humans, cows, dogs, bears, frogs, salmon, elephants, etc. Every day we have a chance to be a little friendlier to the Earth. This doesn't mean hugging a tree, but you can if you like. Perhaps being kind to the Earth, and all lifeforms on it, means:
Being kind and "green," just takes a few simple, conscious decisions. That's it. No biggie. I don't know about you, but I'd like the Earth to stick around for a while longer (a long, long, long while longer, in fact).
How do you practice environmental kindness? Also, what's your go-to birthday dessert request?
