Raw Chocolate Tart!

Chocolate Tart

It’s be soooo long since I have posted on here… no excuse.

Hopefully this makes up for it.  🙂

There aren’t a whole lot of words to describe how wonderful this is.

Very simple, nutritious ingredients and you have yourself one decadent dessert.

For the crust…

1c of pecans
1/2c (or 10) soaked, pitted dates
1/2c of raw cacao powder
1tbsp of coconut oil
a pinch of ground clove

Process in your food processor until well combined and press into the bottom of a parchment lined eight inch tart pan.

For the filling…

1 can of coconut milk – solid part only
1/2c of coconut oil
1/2c of raw cacao powder
1tbsp of coconut nectar
a pinch of ground cloves

Process in your food process until smooth and creamy and then pour over top of the base.

Place it into the freezer for thirty minutes and voila!

Decorate with cacao nibs, coconut flakes or the fruit of your choice.

I got twenty pieces out of this one. Be sure to store in the fridge.

Banana Blast!

Here’s our raw version of a summer treat we’ve all had once or twice before.

There are no words to describe how delicious this one is…my six year old and I just devoured it!

For the ‘ice cream’…

2 bananas
1/4c (maybe a titch more) of homemade almond milk
a pinch of vanilla powder

Slice your bananas and place them in the freezer for at least four hours. Once they are frozen, place them into your processor. Start processing and add in your milk and vanilla. Process until smooth and creamy.

Now of course this ‘ice cream’ is absolutely fabulous all on its own, but his time we decided to fancy it up and added in some raw, dark, chocolate and our favorite peanut butter cups… all chopped up into bite size pieces of course.

You can find our recipe for peanut butter cups here…

Options are endless!

Stir it all together and enjoy!!!

Peanut Butter Cups…Inside Out!

Image

I love chocolate peanut butter thingies that you find over Easter…just not a big fan of the ingredient list.

I’ve tried to create something ‘post worthy’ the past two years, but no luck.

I’m SO excited to share these with you. They are SO delish!

What you’ll need for six cups…

6tbsp of melted cacao butter
6tbsp of raw, smooth peanut butter
1tbsp of agave, coconut nectar or maple syrup
a pinch of vanilla powder (or the bean)

Gently melt the cacao butter and whisk in the remainder of the ingredients.

Pour a bit of it into the bottom of six silicon muffin cups and place them into the freezer.

For the chocolate…

about 30g of raw, dark chocolate
1tsp of coconut oil
a pinch of himalayan salt

Melt a bit of raw dark chocolate (or make your own) and add in the coconut oil and salt. Give it a good stir and pour a bit of that onto the PB base…back into the freezer they go.

Five or ten minutes later… drizzle the last layer of the peanut butter mixture to finish it off.

Store them in the freezer until your ready to share.  🙂

Chocolate only makes an appearance on our breakfast table when we have extra special friends joining us.

Super simple.

Cook your (gf) oatmeal for a few minutes – about half the time that it needs.

Add in the following for two servings…

  • 1tbsp of cacao powder
  • 1tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1tbsp of coconut nectar
  • 1/4c of coconut water

Give it a really stir… turn off the heat… and serve!

Good morning!
