VeganMoFo: Recent Raw Treats – swell

VeganMoFo: Recent Raw Treats

Raw Strawberry Macaroons from Ani’s Raw Food Desserts.

I’m making a bunch of recipes from Ani’s Raw Food Desserts this week to write up a review for Jae Steele’s blog.  So far, just about everything has been Pretty Tasty.  Strawberries are one of my favorite foods, so the smell and taste of these macaroons makes me all sorts of happy.

I also made some Almond Frangipane Kream this morning.  This is my least favorite so far on account of the texture and bland flavor, but it still makes a bowl of Honeycrisp apple slices a little extra special (not that Honeycrisps need specialing up, mind you!).  I’ll have to see if I can repurpose the cream somehow.

Last but not least, some Orange Fig Cookies, which are supposed to have lemon but I was out of lemons.  These are extra decadent what with the cashew nuts and cashew butter in them, but the bit of fig sweetness and the hint of orange zest make them feel lighter.  Yummy yum yum!

There will be a more overall review of the book as a whole on Domestic Affair, which I’ll point you to whenever it happens over the next couple months, but the general recommendation here is yes:)

    Those last cookies look great! I’m not normally tempted by raw treats, but those look quite addicting.

  3. THese both look so tasty! Those strawberry macaroons look especially delicious.

    Your Strawberry Macaroons are so pretty! I must not have dehydrated mine long enough when I made them, because they were spongy, squishy, wet, and not nearly that beautiful.

  5. Everything Ani makes is absolute heaven. Delish!

    a-k – I made the almond cream, but didn’t have enough almonds, so mine was a mix of almonds, hazelnuts, and a few walnuts…turned out really well. :) Maybe try some different combinations?

  11. I love the pink looking macaroons! Very pretty :)

    I really like this cookbook. I thought the almond kream was bland on its own, but found that it was quite good served layered with berries. I haven’t tried the macaroons yet, but they look great!

  15. This cookbook is a MUST HAVE for every vegan and to those who wants to live healthy and well! Two thumbs up for this!
