1. Raw lemon cheesecake

Skip the tricky cheesecake baking process of cooking in a water bath - and the risk of a cracked and sunken cake top - with this foolproof cheesecake recipe. The secret? No cheese. 

2. Pumpkin pie chocolate bars

Fans of chocolate bar ice creams, this recipe is for you. 

3. Raw raspberry, ginger and chocolate tarts

These dainty tarts manage to cut out the gluten, dairy, and baking while delivering an indulgent-tasting dessert. It features a crispy walnut-based case filled with light and luscious cashew cream, and topped off with a velvety cacao sauce. 

4. Raw nectarine tart

The perfect end to a summer picnic or BBQ, this bake-less tart has a base of nuts, dates and coconut oil in place of shortcrust; and instead of the frangipane of traditional fruit tarts, a creamy blend of cashews. 

5. Blueberry and coconut paddlepops

These straightforward blend-and-freeze babies are packed with the goodness of blueberries and coconut. Dip them in some roasted nuts or cocao nibs for extra crunch.

6. Raw chocolate brownies

All the hallmarks of a classic brownie - gooey, chocolatey, addictive - but without the flour, butter or baking. Genius. 

7. Rice milk pots with raw cacao chocolate sauce

This warming dessert is a healthy take on Mexican arroz con leche (rice with sweetened milk)... which means we can have two servings, right?

8. Raw multigrain pear ginger cakes with macadamias

If you're handy with a dehydrator, try these rich and wholesome cakes. If not, try the luxurious raw macadamia whipped cream with anything!

9. Raw berry and chocolate torte

The forever romantic combination of berries and chocolate. You'll be in love.

10. No-bake poached pear flan with lime cream

Spiced poached pears, a smooth and tangy ricotta and yoghurt filling, and a nutty ginger-infused base are a dreamy match in this fuss-free tart.

11. Dreamy orange mousse

Mousse is a great option for a no-bake dessert. The heavenly version is light and tangy, with a zesty orange custard base, topped with the crunch of a gingersnap cookie.
