Located on an alleyway off Little Lonsdale and Latrobe lies the healthy option of Raw Trader. When you think of desserts, I'm sure you don't imagine this.

This display may look like chocolate but the lady at the counter informed me it was vegan, organic, pale, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free and everything else you could think of that would make it healthy.

They also serve organic tea, coffee, fruit juice and smoothies. They even produce their own almond milk and hazelnut milks, another popular trend in Melbourne at the moment.

The lady had a heavy European accent and seemed to be the owner, as she spoke about how she tries to update their social media everyday.

She was very friendly and informative about their desserts, which ranged from caramel slices to tiramisu and berry cheesecakes.

In addition to the healthy aspect of the shop, they are one of the few specialised dessert places that stay open later than 5pm, which was the main reason I decided to drop by.

They close at 8.30pm Tues-Thurs and 10pm Fri-Sat, excellent for an after-dinner stop by and a guilt free one too.

I took home about three slices to try, including the special of that day, the raspberry cheesecake below.

They were all of interesting and soft textures that you wouldn't be used to from eating more common desserts with crumbled and biscuit bases. They were definitely unique, but our favourite was the berry and cream slice (I think that's what it was!)

I wouldn't say the desserts at Raw Trader are amazing but it's definitely something different that fits into a health-conscious diet. Without any artificial ingredients, the purity and 'raw' aspect of the desserts truly make it appealing to a big audience in Melbourne!
