Raw Vegan Carrot Cake With Cashew Frosting

Hi beautiful souls!

This is a recipe that I created a few years ago, and to this day it is still one of the best raw home-made vegan cakes that I have ever made and happily eaten (not to be biased, of course 😉 ).  Filled with wholesome plant ingredients and simple to make, I am sure that it is a recipe that any soul would enjoy, especially when shared with loved ones and friends♡

Naturally sweetened with dates, this carrot cake is dense, super delicious, and nourishing for the mind, body and soul. The added cashew cream on top gives it a creamy texture, and it definitely makes for a great snack, dessert, or meal if you would like 🙂 Carrots are a wonderful source of Vitamin A, and because of its simplicity, this recipe is also gut-friendly for all. Be kind to others, and always remember to be kind to yourself.♡

I hope that you enjoy this recipe, and if you do recreate it, I would love to see your  beautiful creations on my instagram, @jaslipska !

Sending all of my love,

Jasmine
