I’ve been vegan for a long time. I know how to make my own seitan, nut butter, and non-dairy milk. I rarely rely on others to satisfy my cravings. I guess it was the years of finding “whey powder” or “skim-milk powder” in chocolates and treats at the store that inspired me to stop reading labels and start creating sensational sweets at home.
But recently I discovered UliMana, a company that creates incredible raw, vegan truffles. I don’t depend on them for all my nutritional needs but every once and a while I’m willing to let them take care of me.
They have a beautiful range of blissful bites to satisfy your sweet tooth.
This line of truffles is sweetened with coconut nectar rather than agave.
Containing cacao, pumpkin seeds, raisins, sunflower seeds, pecan, flax and vanilla bean, this is a truly delightful dessert. It is not overwhelmingly sweet – full of complex flavours and rich in nutrients.
Ulimana‘s product line contains more than just truffles. These lemon fig bars are phenomenal. Chewy, sweet and full of figs.
After trying these UliMana sweets I am feeling pretty blessed to be a vegan in 2010. Life is good. Although, it would be better with a raw peppermint truffle.
In case you missed the talk that Tal Ronnen gave in Toronto last night please swing over to Nicole’s blog for her fantastic post.
I’m sorry that I haven’t had recipes to share over the past couple of days but don’t worry…there is so much to come next week. All hail the vegan mofo!
