That’s raw? You bet it is. In fact it is one of my all time favorite raw dessert recipes and today we are taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting it! It’s all because my book, Rawmazing: Over 130 Simple Raw Recipes for Radiant Health is going into it’s third printing and my editor wanted a different shot of this dessert. Since I had to make it again, I changed things up a bit and I am reintroducing it to you.
The inspiration for this torte came from one of the old Pillsbury Pamphlet Cookbooks. Do you remember those? Are they still making them? The cookbooks were always by the register at the grocery store. Reasonably priced, full of yummy (but certainly not good for you) recipes, they were irresistible at checkout.
One of my favorite recipes from those books called for white chocolate, dark chocolate and raspberries. All combined in the same dessert. How can you possibly go wrong? I had to create a raw version. It proved to be easier than I thought. This is a show stopper for company, but easy enough to make for a weekend dessert for your family.
Don’t forget, this is a dessert and I always want to remind you that even though it is raw, and has many more nutrients in it than the original, it still is calorie dense and should be treated as a special indulgence.
