Summer Favorite Easy Raw Dessert Recipes

Banana Strawberry Popsicles

Banana Strawberry Popsicles / Gail Ingram Photography

I started thinking about how I might create my own summery and easy raw dessert recipes after getting hooked on the mint “ice cream” sundae at my favorite local raw foods restaurant, Christopher’s Kitchen, a few months back.

I had never heard of a raw ice cream sundae and was sort of wondering what it might be made of. Christopher’s Kitchen is vegan so I knew it couldn’t be raw milk. Watch the video below to learn more…

If you are not lucky enough to live in Palm Beach county near Christopher’s Kitchen you can still beat the heat and make your own easy raw dessert recipes with these ideas below. These no-cook/ no-guilt recipes are both are super kid-friendly and truly nutritious. In fact, they are so healthy you could even eat them for breakfast…something my son does frequently on his way out the door to summer camp.
