Valentine's Day Bliss: Cacao Crepes with Cashew Creme and Fresh Berries!

Today, was Valentine's Day! It just so happens that it is my favorite holiday all year! Why? Because it is all about LOVE!!
Making memories for my children is one of my priorities, so holidays are a time to create fun, and delicious, special food that everyone will love. Being high-raw vegan means that keeping food in it's most natural state possible, with all the living enzymes in tact is important to us! Just because we live this way, doesn't mean that we sacrifice flavor. 

These raw cacao wraps are delicious and oh, so chocolaty!

Raw Cacao Crepes
4 bananas-mashed
1/4 cup flax seed flour
4 Tbs raw cacao powder
1/4 cup water
1/4 real maple syrup
1Tbs. real vanilla

Mix by hand and spread on Teflex sheets. Dehydrate for 8 hours, flip and dehydrate for 2 more hours.

Cashew Creme
2 cups raw cashews
beans from one whole vanilla pod, scrapes
1/2 real maple syrup or raw honey
1/4 cup water (Start with ¼ cup of water, and then gradually thin it out in order to achieve the desired thickness.)

Blend ingredients with a Vitamix. Use tamper to push ingredients to the blade. Scrap sides of blender if needed and continue blending.

Mixed Berry Topping

Use whatever fresh berries you like and add 1/4 cup maple syrup or raw agave. Let berries sit for 30 minutes.
To assemble: Add cashew creme to the center of the crepes. Add mixed berries and wrap! Enjoy this delicious brunch for Valentine's Day, or any day you want to celebrate something special!

I hope you had a day filled with LOVE!
