Chocomole with Whipping Kream

We love pudding topped with whipped cream. We have made a raw versions using the following ingredients

Whipping Kream
1 cup raw cashews soaked (6-12 hours) 
6 dates soaked (6-12 hours)
a pinch of sea salt
Directions: drain and rinse the soaked cashews. Place in a high speed blender
Save the water from the soaking dates. (The dates can be used for some other purpose, such a raw nut based milks, eaten or added to the blender for the whipping kream to make it sweeter.). 
Add the water from the dates to the high speed blender covering the cashews (~3/4 cup of cold date water)
Blend until smooth

Avocado Chocolate Pudding (aka, Chocomole!)
1 ripe avocado, pitted
6-10 dates (depending on size of dates and desired sweetness – I’m usually happy with 8 medjool dates), soaked if necessary
½ tsp vanilla
4 heaping Tbsp cocoa or 2 Tbsp. carob powder (we used 2 TBSP raw cacao powder)
½ cup water
Directions: Place all ingredients in a food processor (you can use a blender or Vita, but food processors work much better for this recipe) and begin blending.http://www.choosingraw.com/raw-chocolate-avocado-pudding/
To assemble: add the chocomole to the container, top with the whipping kream and a cherry

If one wanted to make a chocolate pie for the crust one could use

1/4 cup dates, pitted, soaked
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup almonds

in a food processor chop and mix the dates and nuts. press into a pie pan. add the pudding and top with the whipping kream.
