Have Your Cake & Eat It: 15 Raw Vegan Dessert Recipes

This article may use affiliate links. Eluxe Magazine only links to products we trust.

By Lora O’Brien

Hands up if you love cake! Now I bet most  of those hands would stay up if I also asked who feels at least a bit guilty when eating it. Well ladies, the time has come to have our cake and eat it, quite literally. Yep, that’s right-these are dessert  recipes that are actually good for us, packed full of ingredients that are healthy, whilst  remaining deliciously full of flavour. And the best part is that there’s absolutely no baking involved, which means  no  more  standing in front of the oven praying the cupcakes will rise, and  that’s because every single one of these recipes is  raw–and vegan, to boot.

We used to think that raw foods meant eating boring salads, and bowls  of carrot batons. But mainly  thanks to a bunch of highly creative bloggers, we learned  that raw foods do not have to compromise on flavour and texture, and they’re certainly better for us. The majority of time when heat of a certain temperature is applied to  foods, vital and beneficial  nutrients that we need to consume a healthy lifestyle are lost. But by eating foods in their raw, untouched form, all of that goodness is going straight into our bodies. No wonder people have claimed that upon following a raw diet they have  increased energy levels, and the ability to focus more.

We’ve been on a mission to bring to you a range of the most delicious looking raw treats. Whether you’re craving something sweet, on a health kick, or you’re looking to make someone a special treat, go raw! All  you’ll have to do is click on the links to get your raw vegan dessert recipes, blend the ingredients, pop it all in the freezer to set, sit back and make yourself a cup of tea, and feel absolutely no guilt at all when tucking into a lovely slice of cake.

1.  Tangy Lime Tart

We’re Loving Hippie Lane and its easy to use App. But no fear, if you haven’t yet downloaded their App (which features an array of raw, delicious treats), we’ve found our favourite recipe on their website. And this tangy lime tart is  zingy and refreshing, and the perfect after dinner treat!

And if we did, we can’t day we’d feel too guilty . . .

11.  Strawberry Cheesecake

How could we leave off a raw recipe for strawberry cheesecake? It’s usually a  firm favourite in many households,  except this cheesecake is at all like  those frozen desserts you find in the frozen aisles of supermarkets. Bin the preservatives, roll your sleeves up and use Katie’s  recipe to make a cheesecake you’ll have trouble in making as it has just six ingredients! It packs a serious explosion of flavour, and tastes so fresh and light.

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
