Someone else deserves the credit for this recipe, but I can’t remember where I jotted it down from. All I know is that it is a really tasty and decadent recipe to whip up when you are craving something sweet. At some point, I plan to try experimenting with this for a raw version of cookie dough ice cream – yum!
PLEASE NOTE: I included this recipe in the Kids category, but children under 1 year should not be served honey. Also, some children can have adverse reactions to sesame and cacao, so please use caution.
After a lot of experimenting, this is what I have found works the best for me. If you have a better way, PLEASE let me know.
I listed the ingredients to make a small batch of nut butter, but you can certainly double or triple the recipe if you wish. However, I would recommend sticking to just one cup of nuts in the blender at a time to avoid overheating. If you are planning to make this recipe often, you can soak and dehydrate all the nuts at once, and just keep the extras in a sealed container until you need them.
I find that I prefer the texture of the nut butter with the coconut oil added, but the recipe still works without it.
PLEASE NOTE: I have listed this recipe in the Kids category, but babies and some young toddlers (such as those with a family history of nut allergies) should not eat any nut products. Please consult your pediatrician before serving nut butter to your child.
This recipe was posted by MissGiggles in the forums on www.raw-pleasure.com.au. She described it as “a beautiful pudding, with a fresh lemon kick, without being tart. The pudding is speckled with the blitzed passionfruit seeds, and looks a little like lemon/poppyseed”. It really is tasty and truly does look like the color of a gorgeous sunset, if you’re into that sort of thing.
It can be served in bowls as pudding, used as a icing for a raw cake, as a filling in a prepared crust, or frozen as a sorbet.
PLEASE NOTE: I included this in the Kids category, but for children under 1 year, you may want to omit the lemon juice and zest.
