30 regular-sized (small) dates or roughly 15 medjool (large) dates
4 tablespoons coconut butter
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon pink salt
4 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder or liquid
3 tablespoons raw coconut crystals

Filling
2 cups raw cashews (unsoaked)
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons irish moss paste (optional, made by blending soaked irish moss into a paste)
2 tablespoons coconut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
20 regular-sized (small) dates or roughly 10 medjool (large) dates
1/2 teaspoon pink salt
2  1/4 cups frozen strawberries
1/4 cup water

 

Directions:

In food processor fitted with "S" blade, process crust ingredients until moist and graham cracker pie crust consistency. Press into two 8" pie pans or use in heart-shaped or other molds. Have fun with this!

In Vitamix or other high-power blender, blend filling ingredients until creamy. Spoon into pie pans or other dessert molds you have selected.

Place pies in freezer. When ready to eat, transfer to refrigerator to thaw.

Yours in delicious heath,
