Raw Vegan Valentine’s Day Desserts – Vegan Chocolate Mousse & More

Let’s be honest, Valentine’s day eating is really all about dessert. Chocolate to be more specific. However, most tradiotnal desserts aren’t what most people would consider healthy. While indulging once in a while is fine, there are tons of healthier dessert recipes out there that will still make you smile. These vegan desserts are incredibly delicious and made with whole foods. They are made with natural sugars, healthy fats and yummy ingredients such as raw cacao, and cashews. Most of the recipes are completely raw which means the nutritional value of the ingredients aren’t lost in the baking.

I wouldn’t recommend indulging in these vegan Valentine’s day treats every day, because yes, many of the desserts are high in calories. However, because the ingredients used are whole foods, you can feel good about what you and your loved one are eating.  You can also feel great about feeding these to your kids.  I am pretty sure they will love them and be none the wiser.

I was sure to select recipes that are relatively simple and straightforward, so that success is almost guaranteed. You can either surprise your Valentine by making one of these vegan Valentine’s day desserts ahead of time or plan on making one together. Making food together can be very romantic. If you are a man who doesn’t cook often, suggesting an evening of preparing food together might be just the thing to thrill your wife/gf/date.
