I've been working at this restaurant called Pure Food and Wine (purely raw restaurant at New York City), and I got inspired to start doing some raw recipes myself! So I started getting creative in the kitchen and this wonderful and refreshing recipe turned out to be amazing so I'm sharing it with you! Let me know how you like it :)
- 1/2 cup of raw pistachios (soaked overnight)
- 2 tablespoons of raw honey (if you want it vegan use maple syrup)
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- a pinch of salt
STEP: In a high speed blender, grind all the ingredients to make a thick crust (hey! you don't want it smooth, make sure is crunchy)... and put it aside. (steps continue below!)
THE YUMMY TOPPING
- 1/2 cup of raw almonds (soaked overnight)
- 1/4 cup of apple juice
- 4 tablespoon of raw honey
- 1/3 cup of lime juice
STEP 1: Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender.
STEP 2: In a small plate spread a bit of coconut oil, then spread the crust mix until is about 1/2 inch thick and finally spread the yummy topping over the crust.
STEP 3: Once you are done, place it in the refrigerator for 40 minutes and cut it into squares, 3" by 3" or as you desire. AAAAND VOILA!! You got yourself a refreshing raw dessert :)
