Raw Cacao (Chocolate) Pie!

This is one of my favorite desserts & it is so easy to make. This recipe is not my own creation but altered from another Raw chef.

Ingredients

RAW CACAO PIE!

Coconut Crust
•  1 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded dried coconut
•  1 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts or raw walnuts (I usually do 1/2 walnuts & pecans)
•  1/4 teaspoon salt
•  8 pitted medjool dates, unsoaked
Chocolate Mousse
•  5 pitted medjool dates, soaked for a bit till soft
•  1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar + 3 drops of stevia liquid
•  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•  2 medium size or 3 small mashed avocado
•  1/2 cup to 3/4 cup unsweetened raw cacao or carob powder (I do 1/2 & 1/2)
•  1/2 cup water ( I use the left over water I soaked the dates in)
•  Cinnamon
Slit open Medjool Dates & Remove Seeds inside. Set 8 dates to the side for the crust.
Soak 5 Dates in water for Chocolate Mousse Filling
Coconut Crust Instructions:
Place the coconut, nuts and salt in food processor with S blade and process until finely ground. You could coarsely ground the ingredients too.
Take the 8 dates you set aside & chop them up into chunks.
Add the dates and process until the mixture resembles crumbs and begins to stick together.
Grounded Up!
Put mixture in pie pan.
Press crumbs uniformly & firmly along the bottom and up the sides of the pan to form a pie crust. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.

 Chocolate Mousse Instructions:

Place the soaked dates, sweeteners and vanilla in a food processor with S blade. Save the water the dates were soaking in!
Process until smooth.
Add the avocado.
Again process until smooth.
Add Cacao & Carob Powder.
Process well. The filling will be very thick & creamy! Make sure to scrape the sides a few times while processing.
Now add 1/4 cup of the date soak water & blend.
Keep adding water a little at a time to make the filling light & fluffy but still slightly thick.
Retrieve the pie crust from the freezer and place mouse filling inside the middle of the crust.
With a spatula spread the filling evenly within the pie crust. Sprinkle with cinnamon and decorate as you like.

Now you must close your eyes to eat the first bite!

You can’t even taste the avocados! Enjoy this amazing healthy chocolate treat any time of the day!!
