Raw Chocolate Pie

Is there such a thing as a healthy pie? I personally was not aware of such a thing until I made a switch to an all raw diet for a time of cleansing and healing. About two months ago my search began and what I have found has changed my whole life and way of thinking even about "baking." This is a raw, vegan chocolate pie that I think will surprise you. When I first saw and tasted it I could not believe what I was eating was actually healthy and good for me, but it is!

Recipe for Raw/Vegan Chocolate Pie
In a food processor blend the following ingredients until fine.
1 cup soaked cashews drained (  soaked means you soaked them in cold water at least 6-12 hours in fridge)
6 pitted dates
1 cup flaked raw coconut (not the sweetened)
1 tablespoon of raw cocoa powder
Press into a pie plate and make an even layer at bottom of pan and set aside.
In processor blend the following ingredients until smooth
5 avocados (pit and skin removed)
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
5 tablespoons of raw cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt

Pour onto the crust and top with shaved coconut flakes. Chill at least 3 hours.
