Well, getting in to the raw vegan groove certainly is a learning curve. I’m embarrassed to say that I hadn’t fully been paying attention to one of the ingredients I’ve been using in my raw vegan desserts. Coconut milk (from a can) is not actually raw! Major oops!!!
I was so focused on the overall recipes and textures that I’ve been grabbing a can of coconut milk and basically assuming that it’s raw but this is not the case. For it to be canned, it’s heated. Bummer! There goes another convenience.
Not to fear. I found an excellent website that explains how to make raw vegan coconut milk. Check it out! For the truly devoted raw foodists, this is the ticket to making the raw vegan coconut milk that I use in so many desserts in combination with coconut butter. Yum! And well, if you’re not that die hard of a raw foodie, you can just keep on using the canned stuff.
