Raw sweets are often based on coconut, date and nuts for good reason: it’s a delicious combination. I’m crazy about cardamom and rose so I like to keep these around for a sweet treat and to accompany a nice cup of tea. They are best served nice and cold. I recommend Perl’Amande raw almond butter. Coconut oil is found at most of the co-ops, and rose water is available at the groceries in Passage Brady and the Little Jaffna neighborhood.

Recipe:

  • 2 heaping tbsp almond butter
  • 3 cups shredded coconut

  • 1 tsp rose water (or more to taste)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt

Process all ingredients in food processor until mixture is quite smooth. Form into balls or press into silicone molds. Refrigerate or freeze.

***This picnic has already taken place***

Let’s get together for a vegan potluck picnic at le Jardin du Luxembourg [6ème] on June 14th at 12h00. Vegans and anyone who wants to bring a vegan dish are welcome to get together and celebrate the good weather.

We’ll meet at the grassy area where you can actually sit down on the south-eastern side of the park. There are three lawns there: we’ll be on the middle one.

If you’d like to attend please add a brief comment below: hope to see you there!

Breaking news: a new vegetarian restaurant has opened in Paris. Kitchen is from the same owner as Bob’s Juice Bar and has a lot in common. They are both easy-going veg breakfast and lunch places with interesting options for Vegans. Among cool décor and communal tables, you can enjoy the daily soup, a great green or fruity smoothie, raw Conscious Chocolates, the açai bowl and more.

I was especially pleased to see that you can get a coconut with a straw, which is a rare pleasure to find in central Paris.

The prices are reasonable, and they have some good takeaway items, like the delicious ‘sushi’ style roll that I picked up.
