No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
In celebration of her 26th birthday, Kristina has made FullyRaw Vegan Carrot Cupcakes with Orange Vanilla Cream Frosting! Just WAIT until you try these bite size party favors that are absolute PERFECTION!
These desserts are PERFECT to make for any occasion and perfect to share with family, friends, kids, and more! The cupcakes are also perfectly portioned for those who want to keep true to a low fat raw vegan lifestyle; a few cupcakes meet your requirements for a low-fat day so that you can have your cupcakes and eat them too!
Equipment & Ingredients for the Carrot Base:
Approximately 2-3 Cups of Shredded Carrots (Food Processed)
1.5 Cups (According to You) of Fresh Dates
Half Cup of Walnuts (Less if You Want Lower Fat)
Fresh Slice of Ginger
Dash of Turmeric
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture reaches the consistency that you want. I like mine gooey, so I let the machine run for longer. Most will want more of a "bread" type consistency, so don't let it go for too long as to get the proper texture.
Press this mixture into the cupcake liners and refrigerate. Get ready to make your frosting!
For the Orange Vanilla Créme Frosting:
Approximately 2 Cups Soaked Cashews
1 Cups Pitted Dates
Small Stem or Scrape of Fresh Vanilla
Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice from 2-4 Oranges
Blend in a Vitamix or powerful blender. This is VERY thick and creamy and may take a while to get perfect!
Spread this frosting onto your cupcakes with a spatula. You can also use a piping bag as shown in the video to apply the frosting on top. If you don't have a piping bag, you can always cut off the tip of a ziploc bag and apply your beautiful design from there!
