1. Pistachio & Orange Blossom Raw Avocado Cake
An exotic tasting orange blossom and pistachio raw vegan cake made with an avocado base. Oil-free.
2. Raw Vegan Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream
This is a delightful recipe that I think everyone can appreciate. We all love(d) the classic dessert version, but I’m not crazy about the processed ingredients like white sugar, refined flour, pasteurized butter and cream cheese. I decided to remake this baby with healthy whole foods! Consider it DONE.
3. Easy Raw Vegan Chocolate Cake
This is it. A simple, quick, and easy recipe for the best raw vegan chocolate cake.
4. Raw Beetroot Cake with Walnut and Fig Crust
This gorgeous Raw Beetroot Cake tastes as amazing as it looks, it’s earthy, rich, wholesome and utterly delicious. This is a cake for all of you who can eat beetroot in any shape and form and loving it! The base layer is made with a mix of walnuts, dried figs and raw cacao and the luscious beetroot layer is a mix of raw beetroot with coconut butter. Just a little cake with a difference.
5. Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cake
The heart of this cake is the gingerbread spices, which make it a great Christmas dessert. I used Ceylon cinnamon, ground cardamom, ginger, and clove, but you can also use a store-bought spice mix if you don’t have those at hand.
6. Raw Cinnamon Roll Cake
This Raw Cinnamon Roll Cake is really great. A buttery pecan oat crust, cardamom vanilla filling and a sweet cinnamon swirl topped with melted creamed coconut and cinnamon candied pecans.
7. Raw Sunshine Lemon Cake
Sunshine (Lemon Ice Cream) Cake – made with coconut chips, rolled oats, acai powder, coconut milk, bananas, dates, coconut nectar and plenty of lemon juice and zest for a fabulous, bright lemon flavor. Perfectly sweet, tangy and exquisitely light, bright and sunny. If you have a lemon lover in your life, this is the cake to make for them! And, it only takes 30 minutes (or less!) from start to finish.
8. Raw Mango Passion Fruit Cake
The recipe is nut-free, raw and very simple. The cake is more like a parfait than a creamy cake and the texture makes it really fresh. On top of the creamy mango filling there’s a mango passion fruit icing, which gives a nice spark to the cake. And if you want to make it look real fine, just decorate the cake with a handful of fresh berries and you’re good to go.
9. Raw Golden Butternut Ice Box Cake
I loved this cake heaps, especially since it’s truly raw, nut-free, and extremely simple. The butternut squash is firm enough and naturally creamy, giving the cake a great texture.
10. Raw Carrot Cake with Lemon Cashew Frosting
11. Raw Vegan Carrot Cake with Lemon & Orange Frosting
This carrot cake is packed full of fresh nutritious goodness and bursting with delicious flavors such as sweet carrots, ginger, orange, lemon, cinnamon and vanilla.
12. Raw Espresso Layer Cake
Layers of chocolatey espresso and cream meld together in this vegan, gluten-free raw espresso cake.
13. Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Cake
This is the most epic Healthy Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Cake you’ll ever make. The cake is dairy-free, gluten-free and made without any refined sugar and it also has a secret ingredient!
14. Vegan Nutella Raw Cake
Say Hello to the best vegan Nutella Cake I made so far – better than the original because it is way more flavor intensive and I avoid using all the nasty stuff such as refined sugar, unhealthy fats, or additives. Tender and smooth with chocolate, hazelnuts, and coconut, perfect for I am craving chocolate nights, snowy morning brunches, afternoon coffee breaks, or birthday parties.
15. Raw Vegan Snickers Cake
A totally indulgent raw, no-bake Snickers cake made with 100% plant-based and gluten-free ingredients. Think crunchy walnut and coconut base, a chocolate cashew ‘ice cream’ layer, thick date ‘caramel’, roasted peanuts, and a creamy ‘nougat ice-cream’ layer to finish it off.
16. Raw Vegan Tiramisu Cake
To make the cake, you only need a bunch of ingredients, and I swear none of them are fancy or hard to get!
17. Raw Black Forest Cake
Chocolate and cherries have never tasted better. Make this raw cake to indulge yourself in the healthiest way possible!
18. Raw Vegan Neopolitan Cake
This Raw Vegan Neapolitan Cake turned out really great. I’ve made it already for two times in no more than a week.. is that good. A perfect chocolaty crust, chocolaty smooth layer, strawberry and vanilla layers follow after.. and topped with some cocoa nibs which bring a nice texture and taste to the final cake. It looks so good with all these layers and tastes absolutely divine.
19. Chocolate Hazelnut Orange Cake
It’s a chocolate overload. It’s mega epic. And it tastes like chocolate orange ice cream.
20. Raw Beet Cashew Cake
This cashew cake is mainly made of cashews (obviously) which makes it smooth and creamy, but still dense and fluffy. Basically a cheesecake, without the cheese! Almost reminding me of whipped frosting. Mmm! The rich color of the cake comes from beets. No artificial dyes or weird ingredients here. Three cheers for natural food coloring!
