Raw Foods Thursdays: 3/13/14

There’s something magical about chocolate and avocado. The creaminess of the avocado gives chocolate a place to shine, and what a great way to get some heart-healthy fats as well.

Last week I shared my very simple Chocolate Avocado Monkey Pudding, but a few of our Raw Foods Thursdays participants took this magical combination to a whole new level. If you’re thinking of serving something green for St. Patrick’s Day, you might want to consider a few of these!

Coconut and Avocado Grasshopper Bars by Raia of Raia’s Recipes


Raw Brownie Cake with Chocolate Avocado Frosting by Janet of The Taste Space


Chocolate Avocado Banana Trifle by Laura of Petite Allergy Treats


The trifle uses these baked chocolate brownie cookies. Yum! But if you wanted to go 100% raw, try using my Raw Chocolate Crunch Cookies or Raw Chocolate Walnut Cookies for the cookie layers.

Time to link up and browse the raw goodness of the week!

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Simply link up a raw foods recipe (see What is Raw Food?), mention Raw Foods Thursdays, and link back to this post so your readers can join in the fun!
  • Please link to the recipe, not to a blog’s home page, so we can all find your raw foods recipe.
  • You may link up a recipe that you’ve made in the past. Just make sure to share something different each time you participate.
  • Be sure to leave a comment letting us know who you are and what you’re sharing.
  • Feel free to use the Raw Foods Thursdays blog badge created by the lovely, talented Heather Peters!

Sharing the Raw Love:

  • All raw submissions will be pinned on the Raw Foods Thursdays Board.
  • All raw submissions will be shared on Facebook.
  • Feel free to share this event in your social media communities as well!

What are Raw Foods Meals?

  • Plant-based meals that are not cooked.  Dehydrators may be used.  (The raw foods community has differing views on temperature, but the range is between 104 and 118 degrees.) Feel free to link up recipes that use a slightly higher temperature as long as they could be made at 118 with a longer dry time.
  • Raw Ingredients: vegetables, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, gluten-free sprouted grains, beans, and oils.

What isn’t raw?

  • Anything cooked or heated above 118.
  • Anything processed.  If it comes from a can or a package that lists more than one ingredient, chances are it’s not raw!
  • If your recipe contains an ingredient like maple syrup that makes your submission “almost raw”, please share it anyway. Raw sweeteners are easy to substitute.

What do you have to share?

    Visiting from Lou Lou Girls. I love all the ideas for unprocessed foods here!

  5. Hi Heather! Wow, thanks for featuring me :-) So excited so see many others going naturally green for the holiday. I have one more avocado dessert to share with you.

    This week I’m sharing my Mint Meltaways made with Avocado. I melted the chocolate to coat these so I think they are still “raw” since the temp was below 118 degrees.

    Thanks for hosting!

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
