RAW: Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Well my VegHeads a lot  has been going on in my life. I've recently relocated my kitchen, VegFam, and life into a new abode which has been awesome and hectic - hence the no recent postings. On top of packing, moving, unpacking, working, being a mommy, and partner, BandMan and I had double band practice every day the week we moved in and a music festival with two performances that weekend. Memorial Day was spent unpacking, cleaning, and BBQs. So yeah here I am making excuses for not posting, but I haven't been cooking. No cooking = no recipes. Sorry babes.

I hope to not slack off this hard for the rest of the year.

So to the food; I made this dessert for Mother's Day. It was kind of out of place since no one told me the dinner was Mexican themed, but they were still a hit. We ate them while drinking wine and watching the original Gypsy musical. By the time the movie was over, so were these strawberries. I found myself begging for an encore of both.

P.s. if you're curious about the kind of bands we are in you can listen below:

2 1/4 c raw cashew pieces, soaked overnight
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp raw agave
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp lemon juice

  • 2-3 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Grade B maple syrup (or raw agave nectar if you're following a strict raw diet)

  •

    3/4 c raw cacao powder
    1 lb strawberries, hulled
    ground flaxseed, for topping
    1. Throw your cashews, water, agave, coconut oil, lemon juice, and cocao in a blender and jush that stuff up. When the mixture is as smooth as a baby's bottom, put it in the fridge for 3 hours or so; you want it to get firm.
    2. When it's to the right consistency, use a spoon to fill each strawberry with cheesecake-ish mixture. Sprinkle the tops with some flaxseed to mimic crust, if you wanna.

    Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
    Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

    Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
    When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeños, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…

    Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

    But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

    This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.
