So Fresh, So Clean: Our Best Raw Vegan Recipes
From avocado rolls to carrot popsicles, smoothies, crisp salads, cool soups, and more, these colorful, flavorful recipes will delight your tastebuds and make you feel good.
If you're looking to cleanse and detoxify your body, we're here to help with our favorite raw vegan recipes. The rules: No food or ingredients can be heated above 118°F and no animal product or byproduct can be used in their creation. Fruits and vegetables can be frozen, chopped, or blended and combined with sprouted grains and cold-soaked legumes. When it comes to beverages, caffeinated beverages such as teas and coffee are not permitted because their base ingredients are roasted or dried under high heat. Instead, opt for fresh, cold-pressed juices to awaken your body and mind. Our Green Juice Lemonade is a house favorite.
For a quick and delicious lunch, try our Cantaloupe, Lime, and Chili Soup. The heat of heat of the chili and fresh acidity from the lime are a winning combination. And we love unexpected combinations. Another odd-but-delicious pairing is found in our Strawberry Salsa. In this recipe, we replace the tomatoes of a traditional pico de gallo with strawberries. The sweetness of the strawberry in combination with the tangy lime and red onion is a surprising delight. Swap the expected tortilla chip with a large carrot cut on the bias to create healthy ovular "chips" used to scoop your salsa.
Looking for even more satisfying crunch? Try our Avocado Rolls. Julienned carrots, rich avocado, and refreshing mint make up the filling for this cabbage wrap. Top it off with a dash of salt to finish.
A raw vegan diet allows for a bit of indulgence too. Enjoy our banana-based Vegan "Ice Cream" or our Vegan Avocado Ice Cream. These frozen summer treats are served best with raw nuts or freshly shredded coconut and can hold for up to a week in the freezer.
Avocados are the best; they're filled with healthy fats, they are super adaptable, and—most important—they're delicious. Eat this mash with your favorite raw vegetables or just a spoon.
Vegan "Ice Cream"
Even on a raw vegan diet, there are so many ways to indulge. Our frozen banana "ice cream" is just what you need for a treat. Try blending dates in with the bananas for an extra sweet kick.
Green Juice Salad
This celery, cucumber, grape, and spinach salad has all the healthy, filling fiber that's lost when you juice. It's an ideal snack or side.
Refreshing and fresh-tasting, this roll replaces your usual wrap sandwich. Looking for extra crunch? Try adding chopped red onion to this wrap.
Cantaloupe, Lime, and Chili Soup
Beet, Avocado, and Arugula Salad with Sunflower Seeds
This arugula salad qualifies as raw and vegan because it calls for olive oil (use stone-pressed or cold-pressed) and citrus juice as an acid instead of vinegar.
Apple is the secret ingredient in this three-fruit smoothie. Add a tablespoon of unrefined cold-pressed coconut oil if you are looking to make it more filling.
