Method

This dish is rich in brain-balancing and mood-boosting healthy fats, and is free from gluten and refined sugar. The perfect pick me up. Consuming a good quantity of healthy fats assists brain function and prevents depression. Studies reveal that a diet low in oils leads to anxiety and moodiness.

BASE:

300g almonds
250 g dates
Water added

FILLING:

5 avocados
150 g coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
200 g raw cacao or cocoa
100 ml maple syrup
Water added

In a food processor blend the almonds. Add the dates and a splash of water to make a dough like consistency. To make the tart crust spread out the dough evenly along the bottom and up the sides of a 30 cm pie dish. Cover closely with glad wrap and freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Blend all filling ingredients and add a dash of water to the mix if necessary to achieve a mousse like consistency. Fill the tart crust with the chocolate mousse. Decorate with fresh blueberries and shredded coconut.

You can eat this straight away, or leave it in the fridge to firm up a little. It will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. Enjoy a slice and reap the benefits.
