The doctor’s orders were “No sugar” for a few days while I kick this bug. Since we all know that’s not happening, I thought I’d at least try healthier desserts by going “Raw” (organic, vegan, and no refined ingredients.)
I selected “Carrot Collective” Carrot-Cake bites, Chocolate Truffles, and Pumpkin Spice “Cheesecake” from Whole Foods.
The Carrot Cake bites were really moist and refreshing, while the Chocolate Truffles were rich, dense and sported a slight peppery kick.
Finally, the Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake tasted more strongly of Pumpkin Spice than cheesecake, and had a silky wet consistency.
Overall, “Raw” desserts can be really tasty and somewhat refreshing with all those Live enzymes and energy! That said, they’ll never have quite the same impact as a real butter and sugar. Also, since they’re loaded with nut fats, they can sit heavy in your stomach for hours afterward if you indulge in too many bites at once.
