What's great about it
This is a delicious recipe that’s just bursting with raw goodness. It’s gluten and dairy-free and rich in antioxidants and protein. I love that it’s not too sweet. It’s the most creamy and addictive pie you’ll ever create.

6 fresh dates, pitted
50 g (1 ¾ oz /1/2 cup) desiccated coconut
