A chocolate crust supports a rich and creamy white chocolate cashew cream with swirls of peanut butter, and fresh chocolate sauce. This gourmet dessert is easy to make, yet you would never know it if you looked at it. Made in a food processor, blender and frozen, it makes the perfect treat to "wow" others with little effort. I think this would be a superb dessert to make for Father's Day coming up!

A few weeks ago I made a magical strawberry blackberry sorbet. I dreamed of going to the market for more fresh berries to make it again. I didn't write it down, tried again and it was completely different. As soon as I had more freezer space, I tried it a third time and it was delightful. This sorbet is incredible. It has a naturally sweet flavor from the strawberries and blackberries and a little agave to help it freeze just right. Now you can learn an easy way to make homemade sorbet using only 5 healthy ingredients! Plus it uses 1/4 of the amount of sweetener found in most recipes. Enjoy a mouthwatering non-fat frozen treat in the comfort of your home. Get the recipe below or in this new video!! Love, Christa
2 Cups Blackberries
2 Cups Sliced Strawberries
1/2 tsp Salt
1/8 Cup Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Agave or favorite sweetener
A creamy cheesecake with a hint of lemon and sweet agave has hidden blueberry gems inside to greet you as you bite in. The cheesecake is adorned with a healthy blueberry sauce and fresh blueberries. It rests on a bed that is sweet yet salty. As you bite in you taste a fusion of flavors and a hint of vanilla.
I made this beautiful cheesecake for my recently celebrated 30th birthday. Ever since I was a little girl I desired cheesecake for any celebratory occasion. I dreamed of what I'd make for my special day and thought of cakes and cupcakes but knew I truly wanted a really delicious piece of cheesecake with sauce and berries, my favorite.
Growing up cherry cheesecake was my absolute favorite but since I had a generous helping of blueberries I thought I'd try something different. The results? Heavenly. Plus - it is vegan, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free and raw. Hooray!
If vegan cheesecake weren't good enough I also have some exciting news for the Artistic Vegan Community! My husband's book "The Anunnaki of Nibiru" was recently picked up by Editions Oeil Critik - http://oeilcritik.com/. When he was working with them, my recent book came up. It was decided that the "The Artistic Vegan Cookbook: An Alchemical Transformation" is going to be published in French! I am so excited and had to share! It is with special thanks and warm love to my sweet husband Gerald Clark who speaks highly of me. If it weren't for him I wouldn't have this opportunity! Please check out the new French section of my blog: http://www.artisticvegan.com/en-franccedilais. Thank you all for your continued love and support, I wouldn't be here without you! With love, Christa
Coconut, peanut butter and banana create a creamy almost fudge like treat resting on a bed of berries, topped with shredded coconut. I served ours with a flower made of coconut flakes and blueberries to celebrate the sunshine and spring ahead. With minimal effort these treats can be yours! Plus it is only an added bonus that they are raw, vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free and oil-free! They are "excellent" says my sweet husband and would be unbelievable with a little coconut whipped frosting for a raw cupcake or chocolate...both? ;) Enjoy - Love, Christa
Vegan Blueberry Soursop Ice Cream also known in as Vegano Helado con Guanábana y Arándanos creates a creamy, one-of-a-kind ice cream is completely sugar-free. It is made creamy from coconut milk and the custard-like soursop/guanábana. Blueberries are added for sweet and healthy deliciousness along with mandarin juice for a shot of vitamin C. All of the ingredients are completely healthy so you can eat a big helping or two and feel great. Watch the video or get the recipe below. Watch the video or get the recipe below.
With only 3 Ingredients you can be making homemade chocolates! This is my staple, quick and easy chocolate recipe. Feel free to add a dash of salt, a hint of flavor with vanilla or your favorite extract, add dried fruit, nuts, nut butter, coconut flakes or anything your heart desires to make a special treat. For fun, watch the quick how to video!
Melt the coconut oil in a hot water bath. Add the cacao and agave. Mix well. Pour into desired mold or a pan line with parchment paper. Freeze until solid. Enjoy!
A cashew cream cheese base is combined with agave, vanilla and raw cacao for a luxuriously creamy treat. It sits on a bed of oat flour, agave and dates. They can be enjoyed as they are or with a little toppings of cacao nibs and coconut flakes. I liked the ones with the toppings best! Enjoy a raw, chocolate, vegan treat with gluten-free options, unlike traditional varieties it has no refined sugar, dairy, or butter or oil. My husband remarked "is there another one?" and in fact you can have another for it is healthy too! In my new cookbook I have pages of raw vegan cheesecake because I love them so much!! I hope you make this dessert and let me know how it is - tag #artisticvegan.
They make 6 cups and it is wildly easy! Press the crust, pour the cheesecake opt to top and freeze.
Once they're frozen, remove from the freezer, remove the cupcake liner and defrost for desired length. I find 10 minutes is great.
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!
This Triple Layered Tropical Fantasy stems from raw, whole-food ingredients. It's an original creation inspired for my honey. I wanted to try a crust with nut and coconut allergies in mind so I made a gluten-free oat crust. This dessert is practically guilt free and could even be enjoyed with coffee or tea in the morning. It's gluten-free, rawtastic, and vegan with a coconut free option available. What's left? Luscious fruit, ginger, dates, oats and more!
I took a large bite of this dessert and my taste buds were overjoyed. Ginger papaya mango "cream", on top of a pineapple dream-like layer, with Strawberry banana "cream" on top of a homemade, gluten-free, ginger and cinnamon infused crust. As if that weren't enough I topped it with ripe WA cherries and adorned with kiwi. Jerry proclaims it is one of my best yet! So try it out and see what you think.
And of course...the best part......
Here are the ingredients and instructions for each layer listed on the images:
Top with favorite fruit! I pitted some fresh cherries and put them on in a spiral design! I added kiwi to make it more pronounced.
When you slice into the dreamy dessert, you'll see a rainbow of colors and health. It's beautiful, delicious and surely hits the spot!
Have a bright weekend!
Hello and Happy Friday!!!
I've been dying to share this slice of paradise. This design was inspired out in nature, in the low desert of all places. I must have been wanting something cold and wet!
To start, I created a protein bar crust:
I followed it up with some homemade strawberry banana ice cream.
As if that weren't enough I decided to add another layer. Pineapple banana icy on top for the background, my palette's ready!
Have fun and create a scene that will make a splash!
Freeze completely, allow to thaw slightly to cut and enjoy a slice of paradise!
When you cut into the pie, you will have two layers of colors!
In the summer, having an ice-cold dessert can be the difference between uncomfortable and sweet bliss. I choose sweet bliss! Have a slice and cool off today!
Stay cool out there!
To good health and happiness,
