Raw Vegan Easter Tart


vegan, paleo, raw, gluten-free

When I first was dabbling in raw foods years ago, I used lots of different sweeteners; agave (when we thought it was good for us), coconut crystals, honey, lots of dates and bananas… Though I still love using some of these (sans agave) I really have enjoyed playing with some low glycemic sweetener such as stevia and xylitol. This cheesecake is raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free and stevia sweetened. We’ll be enjoying this tomorrow for a little Easter treat.

The recipe is simple, all you need is food processor and a good blender! The flavor is light and fruity. You can add different berries for a change up of the recipe. I like using blackberries for a darker version.

I use Sun Potion Tocos as a nice healthy fat and thickener in raw deserts. It's great for you skin and gently detoxing the body.

    Recipe looks so good! What can you substitute for the Tocos powder? Would rice or wheat Bran work?

      You know, you can really just leave it out, it’s more of a medicinal quality vs. flavor 😉
