Super simple and super delicious!
This Super PI is rich and delicious and sure to be a crowd pleaser. Not only is it delectably delicious, it's full of super nutritious ingredients that will delight your taste buds.
Step 1: Before You Get Started
As you are preparing to make this pie, 1 -4 hours ahead of time, (or as your gathering your ingredients) soak 1 cup cashews or macadamia nuts in pure filtered water. This is an ingredient for the chocolate pudding. Soaked cashews are softer and add a creamier texture to the pudding. It is not absolutely required, but serves as a great way to increase the creamyness yum factor. :)
Step 2: Crust
Super simple with only 2 ingredients (or 3 for a chocolate crust)
1 cups nuts (I chose pecans for this pie but walnuts, almonds, macadamias or your favorite nut will work)
2 -4 TBS pure real maple syrup
2 TBS raw cacao powder (optional for a chocolate crust)
In a food processor or blender, add nuts, maple and chocolate if using. Process nuts till they look like a nut crumble as pictured. Next press into a 9" pie dish.
Step 3: Chocolate Pudding - Super Super Super!
1 large ripe avocado peeled and deseeded (super food)
1 cup raw cashews or macadamia nuts soaked in water for 1-4 hours.
