Review: Innocent Indulgence - Gluten Free, Raw, Vegan Specialty Desserts


My family recently sampled a few of the decadent desserts from the Arizona based company by the name of Innocent Indulgence.  We were curious to see if the gluten free, raw, vegan specialty desserts pictured on the Innocent Indulgence website could possibly taste as amazing as they looked.

Here are the desserts we sampled:

Raspberry Bliss "Cheesecake":  This smooth and creamy dessert was a favorite with 4 out of 5 of my family members.  It has a slight coconut flavor and a fresh, tart  raspberry puree to top it off. 

Gingerbread Cookie: If you have never had a raw cookie, the texture is different (more dense), but the flavor is still familiar.  The gingerbread came with vanilla cream to spread on top which complimented it perfectly.  My tween age son liked this the best.
Mochaccino "Cheesecake": Silky smooth and rich, the mocha flavor really shines through on this tasty dessert.  My husband and I liked this better than the kids because the coffee flavor does not appeal to their young palettes yet.  This was one of my personal favorites, which surprised me as I don't normally gravitate towards coffee flavored foods.
Cocoa Nib Squares: As with the gingerbread cookie, the texture of this raw cookie is more dense than a baked cookie, but still delightful.  The cocoa nibs are so crunchy and flavorful that this was a definite winner in my book, and my son loved it too.
Like what you see?  Even more tempting choices are available on the Innocent Indulgence website.
