Raw Food Dessert ~ Turtle Pie

Serves 8 ~ $3.18 per serving


1 batch two minute turtles, HERE ($5.00)
crust
  • 1 cup almonds ($2.50)
  • 1 cup dates ($2.00)
  • pinch salt
filling
  • 1 cup dates, soaked ($5.00)
  • 6 ripe avocados, chopped ($9.00)
  • 1/2 cup agave ($.40)
  • ½ cup cacao powder ($1.60)
  • pinch salt

 Make
the turtles and set aside in the fridge to keep cool.

In a
food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the almonds until they are coarsely
ground. Add in the dates and salt and process until the mixture begins to stick
together. It will be crumbly, but will also stick to itself when pressed. Pour
this into the bottom of an eight inch spring form pan. (I line mine on the inside
to make sure no filling squeezes out.) Press into the bottom and about an inch
up the sides, to form the crust.     

In a
food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the dates until smooth. Add in
the avocados, agave, cacao powder, and salt and process until very smooth and
creamy, like chocolate pudding.

Spread
this out on the crust, and arrange the turtles on the top.. Drizzle any
leftover hard chocolate shell on the top for extra chocolatey goodness.
