2 cups of raw almonds
2 cups of dates
2 cups of dates (soak these if not soft and creamy and drain)
2 lbs of carrots
2 cups of meat from a young coconut( I make mine without the coconut a lot and it is still wonderful)
1/4 cup of ginger( or a sprinkle of powdered ginger)
some fresh carrot juice( I usually use distilled water if needed)
3/4 cup of organic raisins( soak these for a few minutes and drain)
2 cups of walnuts coarsely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cups of raw cashews(or your favorite nut) and soak
them for at least 2 hours
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons dates.
a few drops of almond extract is an option ( but I never use it)
Process ingredients together and press into pie plate.
Grate and then process the carrots with the S blade and set aside. (juliano separates the pulp and juice with a juicer and adds in the juice as needed) In a blender, combine the coconut (optional) soaked dates, ginger and enough carrot juice or distilled water to get to blend. Transfer contents to mixing bowl and mix in the carrot pulp, raisins, walnuts, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg. This is your carrot cake.
Blend in blender and using a rubber scrapper, scrape the sides to help the cream turn over. Stop and check for sweetness and consistency. Blend till fluffy and smooth. Use immediately.
