Remember the talk in school about how marijuana was a gateway drug…
The premise is that if you try smoking pot, it becomes an entry point into trying others drugs and then suddenly, as the story goes, you’re an addict trying everything else under the sun.
Well, I think raw food desserts are like a gateway drug–not in the morbid picture I painted above–but in a very good way.
It’s probably the best way to get Mom or Dad or Uncle Phil, to actually “give” raw food or vegan food or even just organic food a shot.
Watch how to make this “gateway” pie and then deliver the goods to your friends and family… who knows you might end up their “supplier” 😉
Your question of the day (continued from yesterday): Just didn’t get enough discussion on yesterday’s post, so I’ll try one more time… what do you think about raw chocolate (or cacao)? Just a treat or everyday food?
PS. Here’s that awesome recipe…
1 1/4 Cup Organic Raw Almonds (Soaked)
6 Organic Dates
1 Tbsp Water
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
Dash of Cinnamon
2 Cups Organic Raw Cashews
2 Cups Fresh Organic Blueberries
2 Tablespoons Raw Agave Nectar
2 Tablespoons of Raw Cacao Powder
Instructions: Put all pie crust ingredients into a food processor or Vitamix and blend. Press into a pie dish and dehydrate for 4-6 hours. Put all pie filling ingredients into your Vitamix and blend. (Pretty simple right?) Put pie filling into pie crust once it’s dehydrated and put in the freezer for 1 hour. You can keep it in the freezer for a while, just make sure that if you don’t serve it within the hour, that you take it out and let it warm up for 30-45 minutes before serving!
