Vegan Cheesecake Tasting with Deelicious Raw
December 9 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Healthy Living Market & Cafe VT is excited for the return of Deelicious Raw, bringing their all-star (non)cheesecake to sample.
From their website:
DeeLicious Raw produces raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free food products including our (non)cheesecake. Our cheesecakes are as healthy as they are delicious. Made only from pure Vermont Maple Syrup, organic virgin coconut oil, our own homemade almond milk, raw cashews, raw walnuts, raw pecans, California dates, vanilla extract, and cinnamon, there are no preservatives in any of our products and every cheesecake is made by hand, one at a time.
The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It may also provide relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.
Maple syrup contains an abundant amount of naturally occurring minerals such as calcium, manganese, potassium and magnesium, and like broccoli and bananas, it’s a natural source of beneficial antioxidants. Antioxidants have been shown to help prevent cancer, support the immune system, lower blood pressure, and slow the effects of aging. Maple syrup is also a better source of some nutrients than apples, eggs or bread. It’s more nutritious than all other common sweeteners, contains one of the lowest calorie levels, and has been shown to have healthy glycemic qualities.
The health benefits of almond milk include the improvement of vision, weight loss, stronger bones and a strong, healthy heart. It helps in building strong muscles, maintaining ideal blood pressure and maintaining a properly-functioning kidney. Almond milk is recommended as a good option for those who do not consume any form of dairy products, those who have cow milk allergy/intolerance or those people who are vegetarians.
