Raw Valentine Hearts

Tasty treats to prepare together with your sweetheart…

Ingredients (for 2 hearts)

Base:

  • 50 g almonds
  • 50 g hazelnuts
  • 100 g pitted dates
  • 1 tbsp Ambrosiae Açaí Powder
  • 2-3 cm vanilla pod

 

 

White and pink creams:

  • 100 g cashews (raw, untoasted and unsalted), soaked for at least 5 hours, preferably overnight
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast (aka brewer’s yeast, easy to find in organic grocers)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or, to keep it 100% raw, agave syrup
  • Juice of 1 lemon (zest optional)
  • 1 red beet, grated raw
  • 2-3 cm vanilla pod

Instructions:

Base:

Mix all the ingredients and press into two heart-shaped molds (approx. 10 cm diameter), place both in a dehydrator at 40°C overnight (or in a ventilated oven for at least 2-3 hours).

White and Pink Creams:

Pour half the lemon juice over the grated beet and set aside. This will provide the color for the pink cream.
Run the rest of the ingredients through a blender till smooth, then divide the mixture into two equal parts.

Gradually add the beet-tinted lemon juice to one of the portions of cream until achieving the desired color.

Spread the creams over the hearts, like in the photo, using the mold (or wet parchment paper) to keep the edges neat.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Enjoy!
