From RAW: the UNcook Book, New Vegetarian Food for Life by Juliano. I used the dates and probably should have chopped them up before letting my poor little Oscar food processor have a go at them. (I think I used the juice from half an orange, too.) It tasted good though even if it was a little chunky. I plan to try it with the real maple syrup too. Sounds heavenly. mmmmmmmmm. "Cooking time" is an estimation of blending time.
- Put it all in a blender, scraping the sides often, and blend until fluffy.
- If you use dates, add a little orange juice to the blender or soak the dates in OJ before using.
I used chocolate instead of carob. It wasn't bad, in fact it helped me through my pudding craving (I can't have milk). But it did leave a weird after taste. I ended adding in some coconut milk creamer and it made it taste a little creamier.
WOW! Creamy! I used agave nectar and used my stick blender (didn't want to drag out the food processor or dirty the big blender just for a small thing) in the bowl of chopped up avocados and it worked just fine!
This was really good. I've never made a raw dish before, and I expected it to taste a little strange, but it tasted just like very rich carob pudding. The only problem was that I used maple syrup, and it ended up way too sweet. I could only eat about 1 or 2 spoonfuls.
