I’ve had a few requests on Instagram lately for more vegan desserts. With summer coming, I thought I’d create a new, no-bake recipe. Really, this is borderline raw-vegan. It could be made raw-vegan if you used raw-vegan chocolate.
This recipe uses dates and coconut sugar for sweetness. That is why I would not classify this as a low-carb recipe. If you would like to reduce the carb count of this recipe, you could use stevia as a sweetener in the crust and use stevia sweetened chocolate chips. Dates are nature’s sugar bombs, so if you avoid all forms of sugar…you should probably skip this recipe and try one of my low-carb creations.
For those who do well with natural sugars, you are going to love this easy recipe. Dates make a great replacement for the gooey filling in a pecan pie when you mix them in the Vitamix. I recommend a dark, bittersweet chocolate for the topping to temper the sweetness of the dates. If you are feeling really wild, add a scoop of whipped coconut cream!
