This is probably one of my favorite Raw food desserts I have ever made. It is so beautiful and decadent. You will hear that word throughout this blog post. My best friend loves chocolate. She is a true purist, when it comes to her chocolate. No raspberry sauce, just chocolate. So when Go Raw junk free foods, sent me some amazing chocolate, I had to do something really special for her.

aw Chocolate Torte with Go Raw Super Raw Chocolate Shavings and a Raw Chocolate Coconut Truffle

She is an OB/GYN, she is a mother of 4 beautiful kids and she is also very health conscious and a huge FOODIE.  This dessert fit the ticket. The Raw Chocolate tart is nut free, gluten free, dairy free, vegan and ALL RAW!! I am so excited to share this recipe, because the base of the pie is made from sprouted raw seeds, courtesy of GoRAW junk free foods. I have had such a fun time creating recipes from using their yummy snack foods. This is how I feel about Go Raw foods: You will fall in love with the snack and it will inspire you to make it a staple in your every day recipes. The sprouted seeds made this crust crunchy, a little salty and gave it a nice chewy textures as well. I took some of the remaining crust and rolled it in my hands and made a Raw Truffle Ball, dusted it with some organic dehydrated coconut and there you have it, my garnish for this beautiful, decadent and oh so yummy Raw Chocolate tart.  The chocolate dessert is everything it should be and it’s a Super Food dessert.  I must confess the best part and you can not skip this part, if you make this recipe, is the Go Raw Super raw chocolate. It has just two ingredients raw cacao and raw agave nectar. It made this torte silky and velvety. It literally melts in your mouth. I took a few pieces and shaved them with a grater. Magic!!

My best friend was so happy. She is sharing this with her kids as a healthy delicious dessert. I hope you enjoy this dessert. Go Raw junk free food is not just for snacking, it is also for creating amazing delicious recipes.

Ingredients:

Crust :

1 1/2  cups Go Raw Sprouted Super Simple seeds

1/2  cup unsweetened organic cacao powder

1  cup dried cranberries, or raisin, or pitted dates ( I used cranberries)  soaked for 10 minutes in warm water and drained

1 tsp maple syrup

1 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice

pinch of sea salt

Filling:

3 small avocados, pitted and scooped out

1/3 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)

3/4 cup organic cacao powder, sifted

2/3 cup pure maple syrup

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt to taste

Topping : 2 or more pieces of the Go Raw Super Raw Chocolate ( shaved over the top of the

pie) 

Crust:

Rub some coconut oil in a tart pan and line it with a circle of parchment paper. In a food processor, pulse the seed and the cacao powder until crumbly. Be careful not to over process them as you still want them to have small bits of seed chunks. Now add in the rest of the crust ingredients and pulse until just mixed.

NOTE :SET A SIDE A TBSP OF CRUST FOR YOUR RAW CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE GARNISH, MAKE SURE TO PUT THIS IN THE REFRIGERATOR, SO YOU CAN FORM THE TART. 🙂

Scoop mixture onto prepared tart pan, press down firmly and evenly with slightly wet fingers or a spatula. Put the crust in the freezer to set. Start on your filing.

Filling:

Place all filling ingredients into food processor. Process until smooth. In a small bowl. Process until smooth. If the filling is too thick you can add more raw almond milk, or any non dairy milk. If the filling is not thick enough add more cacao powder, a little at a time.

Remove crust from freezer and scoop the chocolate filling on top of crust. Smooth out as much as possible and then place in the freezer for 2 hours to firm. NOTE: IF YOU LIKE TO ADD A GARNISH:  Before adding back to the freezer, you can make your Raw Truffle; take the tbsp of raw crust you set aside and roll it in your hands until you form a ball, dust it with dehydrated coconut. Add it to the middle of your torte.

Here’s the velvety-smooth melt in your mouth bliss:

Shave two Super Raw Chocolate bars over the whole entire pie ( you can use a sharp knife or a cheese grater), but hey shave as many pieces as you would like. Place the torte back into the freezer for 2 hours to firm. 

When the torte is firm, remove from freezer and allow to sit on the counter for about 5-10 minutes before serving chilled. Place leftover torte in the freezer wrapped and placed in a seal container.
