Whatever your preference, vegetarian, vegan or raw, you'll love this!!!

a creamy chocolaty no sugar all raw delight!

DATE NUT TORTE - taken from the NEW Alissa Cohen's Living on Live Food Book. visit her site at!

Fudgy, creamy and sweet!

I bring this with me when Im visiting someone Id like to introduce to raw food. People cant believe its raw! And its one of the quickest and easiest desserts to make.

Base of Tort:

2 cups raisins

2 cups walnuts


1 cup dates, pitted and soaked

1/2 lemon, juiced

For Base:

1. In a food processor, combine raisins and walnuts and blend until well blended and moist. (This will take a few minutes and you may see it forming a ball. Just make sure the raisins come out looking like a fudgey mixture and are not still grainy)

2. Remove from processor and mold onto a plate in a round circle about 1 1/2 inches thick.

For Frosting:

1. In a food processor, combine dates and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.

2. Spread the frosting on top of the torte

Note: I like this served at room temperature as the frosting and torte are still sticky, but if you want a firmer texture that will be easier to slice, refrigerate it for a few hours.
