It doesn’t look overly appetizing but this was an amazing dessert. I will say that if your strawberries are not in good form then eat this right away. I was the only one eating it and it spoiled before I finished it (that’s what I get for trying to make it last).
My friend sent me this recipe for a raw chocolate pie. I couldn’t wait to try it.
I started with having my husband soak 1 1/2 cups of almonds. I discovered hours later that almonds don’t absorb water like cashews so they didn’t get smooth when I pureed them. Cashews are often out of my budget and I didn’t mind the crunch.
I used fresh strawberries and 1/4 cup honey instead of following the recipe. But this was so easy – I threw everything in the food processor and had pudding a few minutes later. The taste was amazing. I wasn’t disappointed that my family didn’t like it.
So here’s my recipe for raw chocolate pudding
1 1/2 cups raw almonds
2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
Add the almonds to a food processor. Give the almonds a minute by themselves before dropping in the remaining ingredients. When all is blended – serve. Refrigerate but eat within 24-48 hours to prevent spoilage.
