Jude's Birthday Pie
This is a 3 part recipe and it takes a bit of time with the soaking, so plan ahead and it will be soooo worth it!
2 C almonds, soaked overnight and then left out to dry for another few hours
1 tsp sea salt
12 pitted dates
*pulse almonds and salt in food processor until nuts are in small pieces. Slowly add dates in until it make a "dough."
6 pitted dates
1/3 C carob/coco/or cacao powder
1/4 extra virgin olive oil
4 Tbsp water (maybe a little more depending on consistency)
*Blend all together, slowing adding water to create a thick texture. Spread half onto pie crust and the use the other half as a topping.
2 C cashews (soaked overnight)
1 1/2 C water
4 pitted dates
1/2 C shredded coconut
*Blend cashews and water until smooth. Add the dates and coconut. Blend until smooth.
Okay so "flour" a pie pan with some coconut flakes,and then press almond crust into pie pan. Add 1/2 of chocolate syrup then add the coconut cream on top. Top the pie with the remaining chocolate.
If it all turns out, you should look like this when you are done :-)
