online raw desserts course

Don’t let this recipe intimidate you! It’s actually a really easy recipe that I just plated and decorated nicely. If you love chocolate then you will love this chocolate ganache cake flavored with raspberry and paired with a raspberry coconut ice cream!

Yes, this delightful recipe is vegan, gluten-free and no-bake! I used an ice cream maker which is optional and I also include instructions on how to make it without.

Here is a recipe for the dark chocolate for enrobing. 

If you make this recipe, I would love to see your version of plating! Tag me at @crystal_dawn_culinary on instagram!
