I usually don’t blog deserts but this one must be shared. Heart healthy and absolutely divine. Inspired by Peggy Ks healthful recipe I decided to give it a shot.

No baking is required. I bought the mini cake pans for this and so glad I did.02-IMG_2081

For the crust you need to grind up

1/2 cup pecans; 1 cup golden raisins; 1/2 cup shredded coconut; 1 teaspoon coconut nectar or agave; 2 tablespoon raw cacao powder

Spread the crust out in 3 pans lined with parchment paper. Put it in the fridge while you work on the filling04-IMG_2083

For the filling use a good blend and blend up

2 cups raw cashews; 4 tablespoon cocoa powder; 1 tbsp espresso or any good instant coffee;  1/2 cup frozen raspberries; 1/2 cup water; 1/2 cup coconut sugar; 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. 1tsp cacao nibs, 1 tsp Maca powder (optional)….once blended add a tablespoon of psyllium husk to thicken.

Pour in the filling and refrigerate for a couple of hours until set05-IMG_2084

It can be topped with fresh Raspberries with a side of coconut milk ice cream.

Amazing on the taste buds and heart healthy. I know I will make this over and over again.13-IMG_209115-IMG_2093
