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.
