Rawkin' Desserts All Week!

My favorite part of introducing people to raw foods is to serve a raw dessert. It ALWAYS wins them over. Even my meat and potato friends love these scrumptious treats! Raw desserts are magical to create and are a way to make life a little sweeter in a healthier way.  This week I’m doing a raw dessert series! Hope you enjoy the recipes!
