Green Tea

Here are some great vegan dessert recipes that I hope you will try.

Raw Apple Pie

I am featuring this recipe first as I have a YouTube video (my first) of how to make it. Click on the screen below.

This Apple Pie uses very few ingredients, it is easy to make and tastes wonderful!

Ingredients:

Crust:

1 1/2 c soaked sunflower seeds (1c dry gives 1 ½ c soaked)
3/4 cup raisins
1 T carob powder

Filling:

5-6 medium apples (with or without peel)
10-12 dates soaked in enough water to cover
1 T cinnamon
1 T lemon juice
dash of cloves (optional)

Topping:

shredded coconut
fruit (kiwi, banana, orange pieces, slice etc)

Directions:

Make the crust by placing the sunflower seeds, raisins and carob powder in a food processor and process with the "S" blade until finely ground and mixture sticks together. Line a 9" pie pan with this mixture and form the crust. Grate the apples in the food processor or by hand. Mix the filling ingredients together. Scoop the mixture into the crust. Sprinkle coconut on top and add decoratively arranged fruit slices. For best results, refrigerate for 1 hr to set.
