OH LAWD THIS BELONGS IN HEAVEN. I think the recipe dropped down from the divine clouds and landed in my little head just so I could share it with you today. Thanks to whoever’s running the holy show up there… Obviously they have excellent taste when it comes to eating. Who knew the angels liked raw vegan desserts? Yet I can’t say I am surprised. Why do I always compare food with heaven, and call it holy and divine? Because the mind-blowingly amazing flavours – and the fact that all my recipes are raw and vegan (cruelty-free and uber healthy) – allow your mind and body to transcend the physical realm and reach new heights. Food has the power to enlighten. Okay, this weird biblical story has overstayed its welcome. Moving on.
The crust of this pie is made up of hemp seeds and dates. I love the taste of cannabis. Don’t worry – hemp seeds have practically no THC, which is the stuff that gets ya high (but you can find plenty of THC in its close cousin, the notorious marijuana plant… just sayin’). Hemp is full of protein, fiber, and a gorgeous balance of healthy fats: omega 3’s and 6’s. The coconut and lime cream part of the pie is basically what it sounds like; it is made up of coconut meat, coconut oil, coconut nectar and a lime. Yep. The best things in life are the simplest.
