Raw Chocolate mint pie

We just saw a medical journal on how 4 Brazil nuts a month can lower one's LDL cholesterol and NOW a recipe with Brazil nuts. YUM!

Total making time: 30 minutes

Makes: One 6" Pie

3/4 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup almonds, ground
1/2 cup brazil nuts, ground
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1. In a food processor mix ingredients into a moist dough. It will press together easily and if not add 1 teaspoon of water if needed. Press this mixture into a 6" tart pan. Set aside in the fridge and make the filling.

2 cups cashews
1 avocado (if you don't want to use avocado use another 1/2 cup cashews)
1 cup mint leaves
1 cup water
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons agave (we used 1/4 cup maple syrup)
3 tablespoons cacao butter, melted or soft
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted or soft
5 drops of essential mint oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan salt

1. In a high speed blender like a VITAMIX, combine all the ingredients. Taste it and add more mint oil if you would like it mintier!
2. Pour the filling on the crust and set in the freezer or fridge!
