In this module we talk about what raw pastry means and which techniques are necessary to recreate traditional desserts without an oven, using just natural, plant-based ingredients.
Apart from the basic preparations you’ll need before you jump into making the first classic dessert, in this module we teach you how to make your own fermented, raw, vegan yogurts, which we’ll use in some of the recipes of the course.
We start by analyzing Italy’s best-known and much-loved dessert to understand how these layers of sponge cake soaked in coffee and mascarpone cheese have become one of the most popular desserts in the world.
We finish the module recreating a delicious gluten-free, vegan and raw version, explained step-by-step in a detailed video.
Did you know that mango lassi might well be the world’s first smoothie? We were inspired by this creamy Indian yogurt drink traditionally made with a blend of yogurt and fresh mango to create a completely new dessert: Mango Lassi Parfaits topped with a crunchy Hazelnut & Ginger Crumble.
At Aurea we like to make everything from scratch, so we also teach you how to prepare your own coconut yogurt to use in this nutrient-packed and satisfying recipe.
Ice cream on a stick is among the most popular, playful and innovative frozen sweets — and it was created by an 11-year-old kid! Ice pops, paletas, ice cream pops & bars… they all are part of our collective memory of cool and delicious summertime treats.
In this module we pay tribute to this frozen dessert by creating two mouth-watering new recipes inspired by two classic flavors: a simple, no-churn Key Lime ice pop recipe and a rich and velvety vanilla ice cream pop, coated with a crunchy layer of raw dark chocolate.
For many, panna cotta is considered the perfect dessert: smooth, creamy, rich, not-too-sweet, and beyond that: it’s easy and quick to make. This cold dessert can be made at home in just a few minutes or be found in 3-star Michelin restaurants!
We transform this classic plated dessert into an original raw, vegan and nut-free version, using agar-agar and young coconut to achieve the consistency of the original panna cotta that melts in your mouth.
Time to put your new skills to the test and create your own reinvented masterpiece, being inspired by a traditional dessert of your country, a childhood favorite, or just a dessert that you like and want to transform into a healthier raw version.
If you have successfully completed all the assignments, you will be awarded our certificate.
These are some examples of the recipes you will learn to make as you progress through the course:
Using just natural and whole plant-based ingredients, such as dates, almonds or Irish moss, we’ve created a healthier and lighter adaptation of classic tiramisu that is vegan, raw, gluten- and alcohol-free, but resembles and respects the flavor and texture of the original recipe that we all love.
Our recommendation: resist the urge to tell your guests that it’s vegan and raw until they’ve devoured the last bite.
Almond Mini Ice Cream Pops
Vanilla ice cream is a classic —the rock star of ice cream!— but it tastes even better when it’s coated with a crunchy layer of raw dark chocolate. This recipe shows how, by using a cheap, home ice cream machine and plant-based ingredients, we can achieve a rich and creamy texture with the smoothness and lightness of dairy ice cream.
It just goes to show that we can indulge in delicious desserts without compromising our health (each pop contains just 1 teaspoon of maple syrup!).
Blueberry Panna Cotta
Making a raw, vegan panna cotta without having Italians throw up their hands is a challenge! We use wild blueberries, rose water and vanilla to make this delicate, fruity and floral version of vegan panna cotta.
Using young coconut and a small amount of agar-agar we are able to achieve a smooth and creamy consistency while keeping the recipe totally nut-free. The result is an impressive and mind-blowing dessert that is actually easy to make!
