It’s been a while since I made any chocolaty pie desserts. So here’s one I think you will really like. I made it up today, when my food processor broke – yes, I said my food processor broke. Fortunately I have a blender with a smaller food processor attachment. That’s how I was able to finish the job. Anyway, this pie turned out great! Try it.
1 cup dried raw walnuts
1 cup dried raw hazelnuts
1 cup well-packed pitted dates
2T raw cacao nibs
1 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1T agave nectar
Combine nuts, nibs, and salt in food processor. Mix well until crumbly. Add dates and agave. Mix until sticky and crumbly. Press into glass pie pan or similar. Set aside in freezer until pie mix is ready to fill.
Cacao Coconut-Cream Mix.
1 1/2 cups young Thai coconut meat (about 2 coconuts)
1T raw coconut oil
1/3 cup raw cacao powder
1T mesquite powder
dash ground cinnamon
dash ground cayenne
1 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla extract
2T agave nectar
1 cup purified water (more or less)
Combine all ingredients in blender, except water. Blend on high, slowly adding water until mixture is smooth, light, and fluffy. Remove from blender and set aside in the refrigerator inside a mixing bowl.
Cacao Cashew-Cream Mix.
1 cup soaked raw cashews
3T agave nectar
1T coconut butter
1T raw honey
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup purified water (more or less)
1/4 cup goji berries
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
1/3 cup prepared buckwheat berries
Combine all ingredients except water in a food processor or high speed blender. Mix on high until well blended and creamy, adding water a little at a time to help with consistency. Pour in bowl. Fold in the Cacao Coconut-Cream mixture, and add the extras (gojis, nibs, and berries). Mix well – but don’t over mix to keep a fluffy, creamy consistency.
Pour pie filling on top of pie crust, and spread evenly. Cover with saran wrap and freeze for at least one hour before serving. Keep in freezer or refrigerator.
This is super yummy, and super energizing, so be careful not to eat it too late at night! Enjoy! 🙂
