Sips, Sweets & Snacks

Happy Monday! I’m super excited to be sharing a truly incredible recipe with you here today, created especially for RAOP by the oh so talented Liz Gallagher of Unbaked Cake Co.

I first met Liz at a Game of Thrones potluck one of our mutual friend’s hosted, and she brought the most incredible avocado dip ever (I’m still after that recipe). I quickly learned that Liz pretty much never shows up anywhere without a wildly impressive appetizer or dessert, and I was so excited when she told me she was planning on launching a Kickstarter to help expand her delicious raw vegan baking far and wide.

To help Liz promote her baking endeavours, we got together and dreamed up a delicious raw vegan tart recipe that’s loaded with nutrition, flavour, and floral amazingness. We called it the “White Chocolate Raspberry Rose Tart”, and you can find the recipe below!
