My husband and I go to the San Clemente Farmer’s Market almost every Sunday. Although there are a lot of farmer’s markets near us, we go to this one because it’s one of the few that allow dogs. It’s no fun for us to go to the other farmer’s markets because then my husband has to wait outside with Mambo while I run in and quickly pick up some fresh goodies.
At the San Clemente Farmer’s Market, however; we can take our time looking at all the booths and tasting the fresh produce. My favorite part is the tasting! And I especially love it this time of year because berries are in season. One bite of a berry, any kind of berry, and I’m forking out some cash.
We’ve been coming home from the farmer’s market with baskets and baskets of berries for the past couple of weeks. It’s been wonderful to have fresh berries on our morning cereal, but now I want to start using them to make some healthy desserts.
I did some digging and found several tempting, yet healthy, vegan berry dessert recipes that I plan to make soon.
5 Berry-licious Vegan Desserts
Vegan Blueberry Cardamom Cheesecake
These lovely purple cheesecakes were created by Heather from Sweetly Raw. I have no doubt that they taste just as good as they look because Heather is not only a classically trained chef, but she also owns a raw vegan dessert business. You go Heather!
Strawberry Ice Cream
This creamy dreamy strawberry ice cream from Foods For Long Life has no sugar and only 73 calories per serving. I’m so tempted by this photo that I just might have to buy an ice cream maker!
Fresh Raspberry Sauce
This fresh no sugar added sauce would be a perfect topping for So Delicious Coconut Milk Ice Cream or any non-dairy ice cream for that matter. You can find the recipe at Healthy. Happy. Life.
Strawberry-Blueberry Tapioca Parfaits
Since going vegan, I’ve used a lot of recipes from Susan Voisin’s Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. What I love about her recipes is that like me, she’s opposed to extracted oil. These sweet patriotic treats are the latest recipe I found on her site.
Summer Berry Pudding
This creamy dreamy pudding from BC Living looks fabulous! What a delicious way to enjoy summer’s berry bounty.
