Would anyone be interested in listing recipes for no bake desserts?
Just in case someone is wondering what I mean by NO Bake I mean Raw Desserts that do not have to be put in dehydrator or desserts that taste good with or without dehydrating them.

Blender: 2 cups raw almonds + 1 cup of soaked dates.
Shape into your fav pie pan.
Blender: 2 cups of blueberries, 1/2 cup of agave (optional)
and 1/2 cup of flax (optional)
Pour mix into crust. Set in the fridge. It will firm up like Grape jelly! Slice and serve. Simple and delicious!

Yeah, like me tonight! I did not like my supper at all and am getting discouraged. I need to find some food I like! I ended up throwing out the meal and having plain old salad again with eggless egg salad, olives and homemade raw creamy herb italian dressing. It was good but same old stuff.
Storm and Jingee had a great strawberry shortcake recipe in youtube.

okay - here's a great recipe - I'm sure it's been posted here before -- it may look complicated to make - but really it's not --- and the taste -- absolutely DIVINE....
Organic Chocolate Mousse Cake with Raspberry Sauce
By Indulge (http://gliving.tv/greenchefs/indulge/)
Posted on GreenChefs
This recipe makes a 7" Round Cake
1/3 Cup Pecans
1/3 Cup Macadamia Nuts
2 TB Agave Syrup
1 TB Coconut Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Cinnamon
2 tsp. Carob
1/4 tsp Salt
2 Cups Young Coconut Meat
1/2 Cup Coconut Butter
1/4 Cup Cacao Butter
1/2 Cup Macadamia Nut Butter
1/2 Cup Cacao Powder
1 TB Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Agave Syrup
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Lecithin (optional)
1 tsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Raspberries
1/4 Cup Agave Syrup
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Coconut Butter
1/4 tsp. Guar Gum (optional)
For the Crust:
In a Food processor, process the dry ingredients first. The nuts, cinnamon, carob and salt. Then Add the Agave, Coconut Butter and Vanilla Extract and Process again until it forms into a moist ball clumped together. If it's too dry add a little more agave to get it to blend and stick together. Take the mixture out and press it into the bottom of an 7" Springform Cake Pan. This is easiest to do by placing plastic wrap over the top of the mixture and pressing down on it through the plastic wrap. This prevents the mixture from sticking to your fingers as you press. You can also use a pestle to lightly pound it to even it out. Put this in the freezer to set while you work on the filling.
For the Filling:
You will need to first liquify the cacao butter. In a small sauce pan add a large piece sliced off of the cacao butter and turn on the stove top to the lowest flame setting. We are not going to cook this or add enough heat to harm the cacao, just warm enough to get it to melt on the low setting. Stir it frequently with a fork or spoon and it should melt completely in 1-2 min. After it is melted measure 1/4 cup of the cacao oil. If it is not enough you may need to add a little more to melt. Add this cacao oil along with the rest of the ingredients to either a food processor or high speed blender. The Coconut butter does not need to be liquified first, but it is ok if it is. For the Coconut meat, you will need 2-4 Young Coconuts. Open them with a cleaver or chefs knife and drain the water into a cup or bowl for another use. Scrape the white coconut meat off the inside of the coconuts and place the pieces into your measuring cup to measure out 2 cups worth of the meat. For the Cacao Powder you can use organic fair trade cacao powder (some great brands are Black & Blacks or Rapunzel), make sure it is unsweetened, organic and non-alcaline. You can also use raw cacao powder or raw cacao nibs ground in a coffee grinder into a fine powder. (See recommended sources). Blend or process the mixture until smooth and creamy, about 1-3 minutes depending on the power of your machine. If you can't find macadamia nut butter you can use cashew butter instead or grind your own butter out of whole maca-damia nuts. You can also omit the maple syrup if you wish and replace it's portion with agave if you prefer. Have fun with variations, and flavor variations.
Once the filling is done, take out the pan from the freezer and make sure the plastic wrap is removed if you used it. Pour the filling into the cake pan. Then cover the top of cake pan with plastic wrap or wax paper and place the mixture back in either the fridge or the freezer. The obvious major difference is that the freezer will work a lot faster. In the freezer it should set and be ready to eat within a couple hours. In the fridge it should be left an entire day or overnight to set. If I will not be serving it that soon I prefer to put it in the fridge to set because it does it at a slower and more even rate.
For the Sauce:
Place all ingredients in your blender or processor and process until well blended but thick.
Once the cake is set and firm, take it out of the springform pan and place it on a serving plate or cake plate. Garnish it with fresh raspberries, mint leaves and raspberry sauce. You can also just garnish each sliced serving piece by itself and leave the cake plain.
You can vary the flavors in this and still keep the same texture and consistency to customize it to your liking. You can add lemon juice and lemon zest for a chocolate lemon mousse, or add fresh mint or mint essential oil for a chocolate mint mousse or fresh raspberries to the cake batter for chocolate raspberry mousse cake. The crust also is completely optional and is just as nice without it. Have fun and enjoy.
Coonlie's notes as posted:
I didn't have mac butter ... So what I did was substitute blended cashews for 1/2 the young coconut and then used 1/2 as much almond butter in place of the mac butter - (used the cashews and almond butter to try to get the mac butter texture/taste). I blended the cashews with coconut water in order to try to have the coconut taste that I would have had with all young coconut meat. I used half as much raw cacao powder as the recipe suggested because we don't like real strong chocolate. Also, I was out of agave so I used Really Raw honey and I left out the lecithin. With all of these modifications, it was still wonderful and yes, our guests were impressed. It was fun. I also froze it for about four hours and then took it out and put it in the fridge for about an hour or hour and a half before serving. The texture was perfect.
