This was one of my first “inventions” when I jumped headfirst into the raw foods world. I always recommend having a bag or two of raw cashews on hand (I buy mine at Trader Joe’s, they are competitively-priced and great quality) as they only require an hour or two of soaking to get the right consistency for making an impromptu Vanilla Pudding or Vegan Ranch Dressing.
Raw desserts are so superior to convention ones, not only in nutrition and digestibility, but also in flavor. They are quite concentrated and dense and truly “a little goes a long way.” I have made this for company and it’s always a hit that opens up more of a discussion on raw foods. Try topping it with a simple chocolate sauce that you can serve at room temperature or warm it gently in a saucepan for a lovely pairing with the frozen pie.

Do you love chocolate chip cookies? My husband adores them but he’s very open to trying my Raw Fusion Solutions in his quest for better eating. Every since I saw a raw chocolate chip recipe in Matthew Kenney’s Everyday Raw, I had been planning on trying these out.
My first batch were totally raw — and that included making the chocolate chips from scratch, definitely a labor of love. The chips are a combination of raw cacao, soaked cashews and agave nectar piped onto teflex sheets and dehydrated over about 8 hours.
This time I decided to adapt the recipe to a “raw fusion” style by using pre-made chocolate chips.
