1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 dates, pitted

3/4 cup key lime juice
3/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut water (or plain)
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil/butter
3 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the crust:

1) Put the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until crumbly and sticking together a bit.

2) Dump the contents into the bottom of a 9-inch spring-form pan and press down until the entire bottom is evenly covered.

For the filling:

1) Place everything save the coconut, vanilla, and salt into a high speed blender. Blend until smooth.

My name is Marquis. I'm a 20-something young professional making my way up in this world. I'm mostly silly, extremely ambitious, and a Scorpio, which means I'm incredibly passionate about everything. I am in love with the raw food movement but I'm the first to say that I do not eat 100% raw all the time. Some days I do but most days it's about 80%. Some days, still, it's even less. And I believe that's okay!! I have create Real Raw Kitchen at the urging of my friends to help spread the raw food love. This is my hobby, my passion, and my creative outlet. My goal with this website is to show everyone how easy, delicious, and accessible a raw food diet is.
