Easy as pie coconut pie

This was from the book Raw 50 and was called lemon pie
but the pot luck judged it not to be very lemon-yy
Raw 50 calls for 2 T lemon and I added 4 lemons
I like the taste but could not call it lemon pie by a mile

Crust was 1 C dates, 1 cup walnut and 2 T cocoa processed and patted into pie pan

Filling 2 banana's
2 cups shredded coconut from the store
2 cups Champion juiced fresh coconut ( I used the water in my smoothie the next morning)
3 T coconut oil
juice of 4 lemons
whizzed and put into pie shell and chilled

Walnut vegetable flat bread

2 cups Walnuts
1/2 c white buckwheat groats
1/2 c whole flax seeds
2 medium carrots
2-4 stalks celery
1 med yellow onion
2 large cloves garlic
1 t Nama Shoyu
1/2 t Juva spice powder
1/2 t kelp powder
Grind up buckwheat groats and flax seeds in a blender
grond up walnuts in a food processor
add to walnuts buckwheat and flaxseeds
Chop the carrot, clelery stalks onion and garlic and add them to the walnut mixture
Then process everything in the food processor
dehydrate until top is dry and then turn over

Loretta's Strawberry Crepes

Cheese Crepes with Strawberry Sauce
from Living on Raw Food, by Alissa Cohen.
Crepe shells:
5-6 ripe bananas
Blend, then pour onto teflex or parchment sheet and dehydrate until leathery but not crisp (about 12-14 hours).
1 C macadamia nuts
1 C cashews
Juice of 1 large lemon
4 tsp honey
¼ tsp sea salt (or 2 tsp. Braggs amino acids)
1 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoons water
Soak the nuts for several hours to soften them. Then blend in blender or food processor until smooth. Add more water if needed.
1.5 C strawberries
1.5 tablespoons honey
Blend until smooth.
Pour a thin layer of strawberry sauce onto plate to keep the crepes from sticking to it. Cut the banana leather into 2" x 4" strips. Place a scoop of filling on each strip and roll up. Place on the plate so that they are not touching. Drizzle the remaining strawberry sauce over the crepes. Let sit for 1-2 hours to soften the banana leather.

It’s quick, satisfying, and most importantly supports every function of your body because it’s very high in enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
