Recipe by Manami
When my sister was in town, my daughter, my sister and I went to a Vegan and Raw Food restaurant! I was very much against it because to be truthful I didn't know what to expect & when we reached the restaurant, they weren't equipped to handle my wheelchair and it was a very bad experience! However, for dessert, I had chocolate pie & after enjoying it thoroughly - I was told that much to my surprise - the pie had cacao & avocado!!! ;) It was frozen and that is how it stayed together!!VegWeb.com. :) Recipe submitted by lfinkels, 02/14/06. use vegan ingredients (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=15403.0)
