This raw recipe comes from Health Ministers Kathy Dean and Kathy Smith: "With the holidays approaching, I looked for a festive pie to grace my table and display at our Hallelujah Lifestyle meetings that encapsulated the benefits of a raw food diet. These vegan delicacies are always a great hit!"
Makes two 8-inch pies:
3 medium sweet potatoes (peeled & cut into chunks)
6 pitted dates
1/3 cup organic honey
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2-3 ounces walnuts (ground)
Peel 3 medium sweet potatoes, cut into chunks, and run through a Champion, Green Power, Green Life, or Green Star juicer, along with the 6 pitted dates, using the blank instead of the screen. In a bowl, add to the pulped sweet potato/date mixture, the remaining filling ingredient (honey, coconut, nutmeg, lemon juice, cinnamon, walnuts) and mix well.
1 pound pitted dates
1 cup almonds (ground)
Process dates and ground almonds in food processor using the S-blade until the mixture pulls away from the sides to form a ball. Press into pie plate with wet fingers to form a crust. Add filling and cover with topping.
2 ounces ground or chopped walnuts
