Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
VegNews, July/August 2009
“[A] wheat-, gluten-, dairy-, and processed-sugar free collection of raw confections to die for. Most of Desserts’ recipes are fast, easy, and have no more than six ingredients, often fewer. It almost feels like cheating to be able to create tasty, intricate, and stylish treats without going through chef training.”

Epicurious.com, 7/16/09
“Phyo's second book focuses on the sweeter side of raw with 85 recipes (Almond Frangipane Kream and Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake, anyone?) that will have your sweet tooth clamoring for more.”

Feminist Review, 8/18/09
"Ani's Raw Food Desserts is a surprising and satisfying tour of the possibilities of raw dessert preparation. Raw food connoisseurs and novices alike will find new favorite snacks and treats among Phyo’s imaginative creations.”

Oxygen, December 2009 “These raw-food sorbets, cakes and cookies use clean-eating staples such as nuts and fruit to satisfy your child’s cravings and your health-conscious mind.”

Vegetarian Journal, Vol.29, Issue 2, 2009
“Scrumptious desserts without ever having to turn on the stove.”

Taste for Life, April issue
“here’s a book that inspired us”

My familly loves their sweets, and I love to bake. Since I decided to eat healthier the kids have rebelled a little when it came to cutting back on our sugar. This book has helped me to make them some great desserts that are healthier. The great thing is they haven't noticed that the healthier part. Everyone has been happy with the desserts, I have prepared.

If you're looking for a healthy way of eating, but don't want to give up dessert, then look no futher: Ani's Raw Food Desserts is an ideal solution. Ani Phyo, a well-known chef in the raw food world, has put together another fabulous (un)cookbook full of easy and delicious recipes. Even if you are not a raw foodist, Ani's Raw Food Desserts has a lot to offer to anyone who likes sweets. Ani's Raw Food Desserts is a collection of 85 recipes, ranging from frozen treats, to cakes and cookies to fruit crisps and more. Ms. Phyo successfully translates not so healthy desserts that would otherwise be full of refined sugars and animal fats into treats primarily full of fruits and nuts that do a darn good job of imitating the traditional version. It doesn't hurt that the photos are mouthwateringly magnificent, either. She also provides an introduction chapter to familiarize the reader with common ingredients in her desserts. The best part about these raw desserts is that they are (practically) guilt free. I eat her trail mix cookie recipe like Armageddon is fast approaching, and I don't get the extreme sugar high and subsequent drop as I would with a regular cookie. Another positive aspect of these recipes is that most are fairly simple, and once you get the hang of her style it is easy to be more creative and flexible, merely using her recipe as a guide if so desired. It just doesn't get much better than enjoying a delectable lemon cupcake made of whole foods like cashews, bananas, pecans, coconuts and dates, leaving your sweet tooth satisfied without negatively affecting your health or energy. If you enjoy Ani's Raw Food Desserts, Ani's Raw Food Kitchen is another great recipe source to have on hand. Quill says: A neat little guide full of easy-to-make tasty treats without the guilt.

If you love sweets, this is a GREAT book. She even inspires you to experiment. So, use her recipes or use them as inspiration for your own. Either way, you can't lose with this book!

This book is fun to read. I like all the extra information Ani puts in her books. I wish the recipes were not so high in fat. My favorite recipe in this book is the breakfast toast. It is very crunchy and yummy!
