Choc Raspberry Pie

Choc Raspberry Pie

This is my most favourite raw dessert recipe yet. A chewy, chocolaty base followed by a smooth, chocolaty centre and a slightly sweet slightly tart raspberry sauce to top.

I left that final red layer a little runny as I like the saucy texture. If you prefer it to be firm, just add 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil and it will set.

The middle layer is actually made with avocados although you wouldn’t know it. I found I needed just the right amount of raw cacao and sweetness to take any avocado flavour away. This means we have the benefit of the avocado creaminess, taking away the need for cashews. We liked this substitute better as it wasn’t as rich.

Chocolate Raspberry Pie

By March 5, 2014

This pie resembles the structure of a cheesecake with a chocolate mousse filling. It is delicious, with a chewy bottom and contrasting sweet chocolate and slightly tart raspberry sauce on top. The quantity fills a small cheesecake pan - if you have a larger one, you will need to double the mix. Just a note on that too - I always find that with raw desserts, you only need a small serving and they are more expensive to make. For these reasons, I don't make large quantities.

Instructions

  1. Grease a small cheesecake pan with a little coconut oil.
  2. To make the base, grind all ingredients together in a food processor until it becomes sticky. If it looks dry, just keep mixing it and the oils in the coconut and almonds will be released to make the mix sticky and give that chewy texture later on.
  3. Press the base into your cheesecake or pie pan.
  4. To make the chocolate layer, blend all ingredients in the food processor until smooth.
  5. Spread over the base and refrigerate.
  6. To make the raspberry sauce, blend the raspberries and maple syrup until smooth. Taste for sweetness and add more maple syrup if you need to. Gently mix in the chia seeds.
  7. Pour sauce over the chocolate filling and refrigerate for at least half an hour before serving.

    This is an awesome dessert. Served it when we had guests and no one realised the chocolate filling was based on avocado or that it was totally healthy. Got the thumbs up from everyone – including the kids.
