raw chocolate strawberry pie

i made up this recipe for a potluck. it came out ok. it tasted awsome, and looked good before i cut it, but it was really hard to cut. i dont know, maybe i should have let it defrost more before i cut it. i whipped the cream thinking it would make it fluffy instead of frozen solid. i think maybe i got too much milk with the cream when i skimmed it bc it didnt get fluffy like whipped cream should. any suggestions would be apreciated!


1 1/2 c coconut (flaked,no sugar added)

1 1/2 c crispy almonds (soaking nuts with salt neutralizes the phytic acid)

1/2 c ground raw cacao nibs (i used a coffee grinder)

2 Tbsp cold pressed coconut oil

2 Tbsp raw agave (wow, i went to find an article about agave and found out that theres a big debate about whether it can really be raw. i use madhava. you could use honey also)

pinch of salt

put the dry stuff in the food processor until it turns into a coarse meal. you dont want it to turn into butter. add the coconut oil and agave. process till it starts to stick together.

press into a pie plate and put in the freezer.


4 Tbsp coconut oil

1/2 c raw cacao powder

4 Tbsp raw agave

1 1/2 c raw cream whipped

2 c strawberries, cut up into slices plus some for garnish

melt the coconut oil on super low. just enough to melt it. mix in cacao and agave till theres no lumps. fold in whipped cream and strawberries. pour into crust and freeze till its hard enough to stay together but easy to cut!
