Today's recipe is as tasty as it is healthy. Its full of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, vegan protein, and good fats. The pie filling has two super healthy hidden ingredients: avocado and ...CAULIFLOWER! Yes, cauliflower. Strange sounding I know, but trust me, this filling is so creamy and delicious.The crust is very healthy as well featuring whole buckwheat groats, raw cacao powder, dates, figs, olive oil and coconut oil. The whole dessert is naturally sweetened with dried fruit, stevia, and maple syrup. No refined sugar for me. It is creamy as hell but totally vegan. The healthy shortcrust is chewy, chocolatey, and very sturdy meaning you can eat it out of your hand instead of needing a plate.

  • Stevia, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups ripe avocado flesh, not mashed

To Make the Chocolate Crust:

I am a brand new vegan looking to start trying things. I'm a Southern gal, and key lime pie is my favorite. Please be truthful. Is this anything like real key lime pie, or is this one of those acquired taste recipes?

My respect to Dr. Wakina Love Temple who accepted and took me like daughter when I was stranded, His Love Temple gave me hope and much reason to believe in LOVE. He showed and proved to me that there is nothing bad getting back my Ex-boyfriend. I took it as a challenge to win back his heart (though he caused the breakup, but I still love him). Dr. Wakina read my heart and connected to Ex-boyfriend and found out that he still LOVES me but he is so distracted by other women before starting the work on us. I started sleeping and having good dreams immediately Dr. started the spell, I felt so much energy and boldness within me for the five days it took him to complete the spell. My respect goes to Dr. Wakina and family especially to his Daughter who keeps encouraging me personally on phone, she gave me good advices when I lost hope on process of the spell, I was expecting easy result, but good stuffs don’t just appear immediately without taking time to manifest. I got the result on the seventh day and we now understand LOVE and how to LOVE. We are not blinded anymore to recognize how beautiful our relationship is. Love is indeed beautiful and I am reunited with my soul mate with the help of one man and his beautiful family named Dr. Wakina via [email protected] Remain blessed Sir as you continue doing the good work that you are called for.
