What, in your opinion, would be the best raw dessert to take to thanksgiving dinner in order to share it with SAD eaters. I thought I'd take a raw dessert to share and just not tell anyone it's raw then see what they think...
plus, I want to be able to eat dessert myself .. even though I am planning on allowing myself some cooked food on thanksgiving (i'm not 100% raw yet).. I wanted to end the meal with a raw dessert that I won't have to feel bad about.
there's a raw pumpkin pie from purely delicious that my friends didn't think was raw. and they said it was the best pumpkin pie they ever had.

raw cheesecake with raspberries & raspberry sauce. Tastes better than the cooked version to me. Also, looks beautiful. :)

garden nanny- where did you find the recipe you liked for rasp. cheese cake?
I made a raw cheesecake for christmas last year that my whole sad family loved. So I concur with garden granny. I got it off of this site. It was cashewed based with lemon juice and raw honey from what I remember. IF you do a search with the banana it should pop up.
Ok I finally found it. Here it is for the cheesecake recipe I use:
For the crust:
1 1/2 cups of almonds
1 cup of dates or 1/2 cup of honey
To make the crust, use a food processor and process the nuts and dates or honey until nice and fine. If you do not have a food processor use a blender but do not place all the ingredients at once but little at time or else it will burn out the blender. "Personal experience". Place the ingredients into a pie plate and press all around the pie plate, once this is done I put it in the fridge.
For the Cheese:
3 cups of cashews (soak in a bowl for at least an hour this will make them nice and soft)
1 cup of lemon juice
1 cup honey
1 cup of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
To make the cheese, blend the cashews, lemon, honey, coconut oil, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of water. Blend until smooth and adjust to taste.
Pour the cheese mixture onto the crust.
Place the cheesecake into the freezer until its nice and firm (I put it in for 3-4 hours tops).
Then I put cheesecake into the fridge for about an 1 hour.
1 bag of your favorite berries or whatever is available
1/2 cup of dates or 1/4 cup of honey
Blend the ingredients and place it on a container.
I pour the sauce on the cheesecake when I cut myself a piece.
Delicious!!! will definitely be a favorite.
