This recipe is purely scrumptious! It is so rich, recommended for special occasions only
Tools: Food processor, grater
1 1?2 cups pecans soaked for 8 hours 1 1?2 cups dates
3 apples peeled, cored and grated 1 1?2 cup raisins 2 cups pecans coarsely chopped 1/4 cup orange juice 2 tablespoons honey 2 tsp cinnamon
In the food processor process the dates and pecans until there forms a smooth dough. Spread the dough evenly in a 9 inch pie dish and place in the fridge to set.
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix all ingredients and spread onto crust. Place in the fridge to set for 3 hours.
Smooth vanilla coconut ice cream
(Serves 4) Tools: Blender; Champion juicer or food processor
Meat of 2 to 4 young coconuts, depending on yield 1 vanilla bean
4 frozen bananas (whole if using a Champion juicer, finely chopped if using a food processor)
Put the coconut meat in a blender. Scrape the seeds out of the vanilla bean, and add to the blender. Blend until smooth.
Combine the bananas and meat and process through a Champion juicer using the blank plate The easiest way to do this is to add one banana and a little coconut meat at a time. You may need to mix the ice cream a little afterward to distribute the coconut evenly.
If you don’t have a Champion, process the finely chopped frozen banana in a food processor. When the “ice cream” is white and fluffy, add the meat, and process for a little while longer. If you’re not eating it immediately (a tough task!), put it into individual bowls and return to the freezer.
