Hi beautiful friends! We are going to make a gorgeous cake today on the Artistic Vegan Show #16. Moist chocolate cake with chocolate chips inside makes our base, covered with a chocolate ganache.
It is a brand new year, Happy New Year!!! I hope you are all off to a bright start. I have a new recipe for you that is delightful, light, satisfying, creamy and totally guilt-free. I didn't use any sugar, oil, dairy, syrups and you don't even have to bake it. Soak, blend, top, refrigerate or freeze and you can be enjoying your very own Cranberry Bliss Bars. Cranberries are glowing on top of an orange cream center that lays slathered on a sweet oat and date crust. Light, healthy and naturally sweetened with dates and cranberries so you can enjoy a slice or two and still feel and look great!
2 Ingredients are all you will need to create a sweet and simple frosting! Orange Juice and Cashews. You can certainly add your favorite sweetener, I find ripe juicy oranges provide more than enough sugar. Plus when featured on a dessert with cranberries it surrounds it with natural sweetness. This frosting may be used on a number of desserts, this is featured on the 5 Ingredient Cranberry Bliss Bars!
Zen Fusion Carrot Cake Muffins are roaring with health benefits! The muffins are made with carrots, fresh apple puree, bananas, raisins, flax meal, pecans, and spices. Add some homemade Cinnamon Vanilla Pecan Frosting Infused with Coffee and you are in for a real treat. This recipe was created with tender love and care. If you only saw my notebook with scratch marks, arrows, circles and modifications galore to create a vegan, gluten-free, paleo, oil-free dessert with a raw option that tastes moist, decadent and won't stick to ones hips. I am very grateful for the inspiration to create this recipe, I hope you enjoy it too!

Canella Cafe Frosting
Summertime has many blissful moments. The sun on your skin, the gentle warm breeze that kisses your face as it blows by, the birds chirping in the distance, water to retreat to and enjoy, fantastic sunrises and mesmerizing sunsets to name a few. I have one more to add to your list, Summer Bliss Pecan Carrot Cake.
This is by far one of my best creations and masterpieces. Combining a variety of flavors that make your taste buds dance in delight. With each bite I tried to describe the taste and the words spring and summer come to mind, refreshing, rich, scrumptious, fantastic! My husband even said "I can't believe you made this!" and quite frankly neither could I!
There are magical moments in the kitchen when the creative force takes over and new creations are born. The best part about this cake is you can eat a piece and not feel terrible about it later, mentally or physically.
It's made with wholesome ingredients that are vegan, raw, gluten-free, oil-free and kosher. The ingredients come together in an unbelievable manner making a sensational recipe for loved ones, kids, carnivore, herbivores, individuals on a raw or paleo diet or anyone wanting a sensational dessert! This recipe would be great at an event and would be sure to please your friends and family!
This cake lasted the two of us about a week or more in the freezer. It makes such a large amount that you can split a piece and be more than satisfied! So lift up your sleeves, and lets make a beautiful cake!
Blissful Pie Crust:
Slice and serve!
I have a feeling my husband and I will enjoy this recipe many times in the future, it is a definite keeper. One of my best, enjoy!
Have a blissful weekend,
Coconut oil and coconut milk make this one dreamy creamy frosting! We enjoyed it on top of the Summer Bliss Pecan Carrot Cake. I can envision it on a number of delicious desserts.
Coco Cream Frosting:
Creamy frosting infused with lime to give you a sweet and tangy infusion for your sweet tooth. We enjoyed the frosting on top of pecan carrot cake cookies that are raw, dehydrated at a low temperature. Healthy and fantastic!
Creamy Limón Frosting:
I hope you all had a bright and fabulous weekend and are enjoying your summer wherever you may be. This past week we decided to do some upgrades to our home. Sanding, painting, sealing, applying and so forth. In order to get us through the hard work I decided to make us a treat.
Homemade raw cookies with frosting! Not any cookies either. Pecan carrot cake cookies with a creamy limón frosting!
I dehydrated the cookies outside while we worked away inside. The smell of paint indoors and the smell of carrot cake and sweet spices outside. When they were done we could hardly wait for them to cool to apply the frosting so certainly helped ourselves to one or two. They were mouthwatering delicious! Sweet from the carrots and raisins with just the right amount of spice. Plus, a delight to know they are gluten free, raw and vegan! the next morning I frosted the cookies and we enjoyed one with our coffee. We placed them in the freezer, as we prefer most of our treats frozen, and hours later in the heat of the day enjoyed a nice cool cookie!
At the end of the week, our home looked completely different. Brand new and refreshing! The hard work paid off and the cookies got us through!
These cookies are great for guests, parties, your loved ones, or yourself! They are incredibly delicious, healthy and simple to make! The frosting is made from pecans so feel free to dab a little extra on top!
