In Montreal, we also went to Crudessence, a raw vegan restaurant where everything tastes like heaven.

I had a kale, banana, mint, cayenne and almond milk smoothie and my boyfriend had a cacao, maca, banana and almond milk smoothie


We shared this plate = Endives, cucumbers, mango, peppers, lettuce with macadamia sour cream


I had a pizza-pasta combo. Raw zucchini pastas with marinara sauce, olive crust pizza with sundried tomatoes sauce, cashew cheese, mushrooms, vegetables, topped with nut parmesan, a garden salad and some sprouts


My boyfriend chose the lasagna. Rich layers of zucchinis, tomatoes, cashew cheese, sunflower spread topped with nut parmesan, a garden salad, sprouts and a carrot and jicama slaw


And we had fun trying desserts, that we shared. We first had a fruit cake


Then we tried the choco-banana pie


And i had to taste their avocado-lime pie because i wanted to compare with mine!


Good news, the taste was exactly the same. However, the texture was different. This one was much more creamier than mine. I do have a cheap blender so i know it can make a difference, even with smoothies. So now i know that i really need to buy a good blender soon!

I love my Blendtec blender.

I wish we had a fancy raw restaurant like that around here!
