Here are 5 gorgeous desserts that are worthy of a summer birthday celebration. This way, you can have your cake and eat it too — without weight gain or a sugar hangover.
Raw Cashew Dreamcake
I’ve made this Raw Cashew Dreamcake recipe many times for special occasions and it’s always a big hit! The pink and white layers look so elegant and this dreamcake is delicious.
Check out this Paleo Watermelon Cake from PaleoCupboard.com! There are many variations on this theme if you search for “watermelon fruit cake” on Pinterest. You can also find simpler recipes that only use fruit, without the coconut frosting.
Raw Chocolate Raspberry Mini Fudge Cake
For the chocolate lovers out there, I’ve got you covered! Here’s a Raw Chocolate Raspberry Fudge Cake. We don’t recommend agave, so I would use honey instead for this recipe.
Strawberry Rhubarb Icebox Pie
I love the simple, seasonal list of ingredients for this Strawberry Rhubarb Icebox Pie. Perfect for a summer celebration!
Key Lime Pie
I absolutely love using avocado as a base for desserts. I’ve also made this Key Lime Pie recipe and it does not disappoint! This recipe calls for ⅓ to ½ cup of honey – I always add less, and taste and add a bit of stevia if I feel it’s necessary.
