Marvelous is eating so many nutrient dense foods, and having loads of energy, however, I don’t think I could be fully raw forever, but this weekend I the most Marvelous raw dessert.
Marvelous is raw coconut butter and all the wonderful things you can do with it. I love Artisana Raw Coconut Butter, but I don’t love the $11.99 price.
Marvelous is making homemade coconut butter. It has got to be one of the simplest things to make ever. Just put raw full fat coconut flakes in a food processor and process for about 10 minutes, after 5 minutes stop processor and scrap down sides of the processor bowl, and proceed to process. I just set the timer for 5 minutes, scrap down sides and set the timer for 5 more minutes. When complete I had myself some smooth creamy coconut butter.
I processed equal amounts of dates and turkish figs, (about 15 each), in food processor until it came together in a ball.
Press into a 6 inch pie dish. I sweetened the coconut butter with a bit of agave nectar and spread it on top of the first layer, place in freezer to set.
I processed more of the date/fig mixture with some water and lemon juice to make a creamy sauce, spread on top of the coconut butter, sprinkled on some almonds and coconut flakes and I had a delicious raw food dessert.
