Im soooooo excited about this months Sweet Adventures Blog Hop! As the hostess with the mostess this month, I got to choose the theme, and as you guys are aware, I chose raw!
There was a little bit of confusion around the theme, but its something I have been looking in to since going veggie. There really is a whole world out there of food techniques and beliefs that I hadn’t even fathomed.
After watching a raw dessert being made on an episode of Veg, I knew I had to try it. Its looked perfectly fudgy and decadent, but was completely raw, completely vegan, and completely good for you!! I KNOW RIGHT?!?!
Raw Chocolate Ganache Tart – May’s SABH
Adapted from The River Cottage
1 tsp salt
4 medium sized ripe avocados
150g virgin coconut oil
200g raw cacao powder.
Pinch of salt
8tbs agave nectar (or to taste)
In a food processor, blend the walnuts, almonds, salt and dates until you have a ‘dough’, or until the mix forms a ball.
Press this mixture into the bottom of a springform tin an place in the freezer until needed.
For the filling, blend everything together until smooth, then pour onto the base.
Set in the freezer for 1 hour, or until it’s firm enough to slice up.
That’s it! Its seriously that simple
