We’ve been obsessed with this small, gourmet raw food cafe in Byron Bay, Australia for a while now – from afar. God only knows how we stumbled upon them on Instagram, but we’ve been stalking Naked Treaties’ feed full of rainbow-colored raw shakes and smoothies (think liquid stacks of frozen superfoods mixed with local passion fruit and flowers) and dreaming up a life on the other side of the equator full of endless beaches and these raw almond “donuts”.
We love the rush of vitality we get from a fully raw meal, and raw chefs have to be some of the most creative health nuts in the world. Ogle the Naked Treaties feed for plenty of raw food inspiration and grab this incredible raw, nut-based, vegan donut recipe to get things going!
