I don’t think anything says love more than homemade goodies!
Here are my top 5 Valentine’s day messages of love. All are gluten-free and vegan. Enjoy!
- Chocolate-Raspberry Fudge- my husband+fudge= eternal happiness. The key is to make it not so unhealthy by keeping sugar low. Here’s a yummy recipe to try. Combine equal parts each 1/2c coconut oil, almond butter, cacao powder, 1/4c freeze dried raspberries, 1/4c maple syrup/honey or brown rice syrup, 1/8tsp salt and melt at low-med heat until smooth consistency. Pour into oiled loaf pan and let sit in fridge until set (about 1.5hours)
- Raw Berry Tart
- Raspberry Brownie Pops
- Fruit Bake
- Cherry Cheesecake– raw and delicious!
If that fails, the local Breadroot Co-op has a nice variety for you and your sweethearts Valentine’s day needs.
Not wanting to gift food? That’s okay! A nice plant, homemade gift, or a simple love note are all easy and special ideas. It’s the thought that counts, right? Don’t forget, we should be treating our loved ones like every day is Valentine’s Day, not just every February 14th.
With love to you and yours,
