I really can’t say enough positive things about raw desserts. They are naturally gluten free, soy free, gum free, and oh so delightful. I’ve been a fan of them since living in Port Credit where I was a frequent visitor to Raw Aura. It’s such a treat to be able to pick out anything from the dessert case.
One raw chain with several convenient locations across Ontario is Rawlicious. I’ve visited a few of its locations – Yorkville, Bloor West, and Barrie.
Recently we had a family celebration in Barrie, Ontario and it was such a lovely indulgence to stop at Rawlicious in downtown Barrie to pick up a raw Key Lime Square for me and my cousin so that we could partake in the ‘birthday cake’ celebration in our own allergy/intolerance-free way.
A couple of weeks prior I had also stopped by the Rawlicious Bloor West location for a midday pick-me-up. That’s when I first fell in love with the light, refreshing flavour of the Key Lime Square.
It’s has a cashew, coconut, and lime filling with a buckwheat, almond, coconut, and date crust. I really couldn’t believe how refreshing it was on a sunny day.
It’s nice knowing that there are more and more raw shops around so that it’s becoming easier to find convenient gluten free desserts that are also soy free and gum free. I mean, who can say no to dessert?
