Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

My mom bought me a cuisinart food processor that is much bigger than my old one. I'm in the process of perfecting my gelato recipe and I decided to make a chocolate pie while I was thinking about raw desserts. I used pecans for the crust and I never realized how oily they can be. These were raw pieces of pecans that I purchased yesterday. But the crust is insanely yum so let me just say if raw desserts tempt you to splurge more than you should, place the pie immediately in the freezer after making it. It's got an oooy gooy crust and a chocolate peanut butter bomb taste for the filling. Break this one out for your next party so you can impress the non vegans. I've made this pie before so I wanted to try a different crust but the filling is my chocolate avocado pudding filling that you just can't go wrong with. This recipe requires no bananas unless you want them.


2 small avocados
1/4 cup of coconut sugar
1/4 cup of cacao powder
1/3 cup of light coconut milk
2 tbsp of natural peanut butter
16 oz bag of raw pecans
6 soft medjool dates
2 tbsp of chia seeds

Blend the dates, chia seeds and pecans in your food processor until it forms a nice, moist, sticky crust. Press the crust into a pie pan and set aside. Blend the filling ingredients until its a smooth chocolate pudding consistency. Spoon the filling on top of the crust. Refrigerator an hour before serving or freeze for later consumption. Or if you're like me, eat some of it them freeze it! This is another winning recipe to take to a summer BBQ because its easy and everyone pretty much loves chocolate and peanut butter. 

Notes: if you want a thick crust, double the crust ingredients. This crust is pretty thin so if your preference is more, use more crust ingredients. If you want to go nut-free, use sunflower seed butter. You can also use another nut butter like almond or cashew. Use cocoa instead of cacao. You can also add oats or flaxseed meal to the crust.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
