I've added my vegan touch to a classic dessert my mom would make each year around Christmas. They're sensational. If you love chocolate and PB then this is your dessert!! They come together in one bowl, require no baking and can be eaten the same day, a no-fail holiday treat.
A couple weeks ago we wanted a cookie. I ran through a variety of cookie options and my husband said oatmeal raisin!
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 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!
What is better than Chocolate Covered Strawberries? Chocolate Filled Strawberries. With only 4 ingredients and in a mere 10 Minutes you can be biting into a moist, juicy berry with a chocolate filled center. When you are making them, make a couple extras, pop one in your mouth before refrigerating for a shot of chocolate, yum! Then place them in the fridge for 10 minutes and eat them or serve. How easy, delicious and appealing. My husband and I had these alongside the chocolate covered strawberries and decided these were the winners. We both liked them even better! I didn't know that was possible.
Imagine having a gathering and you walk out with a plate of chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate filled strawberries, can you see the eyes lighting up with excitement as they reach for one? Or you surprise your most loved person in the whole world with them! I made them for my husband and I was surprised at how happy he was to be greeted with the plate of beauties and to "test" them for you all!
