I am always on the look out for easy last-minute raw vegan desserts. Being too busy to plan a dessert means you probably really DESERVE a dessert. Butterscotch pudding also kind of takes me back to childhood, and sometimes a treat for nostalgia's sake is a good way to keep you from buying some processed junk for the same reason. So here is a quick recipe. I topped mine with raw Superfood Cereal's Cacao Crunch (made from sprouted buckwheat). Cacao nibs or dried mulberries would make great toppings as well!
7 dates, pitted
1/2 cup tahini
1 cup almond or hemp milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons maca powder
2 tablespoons liquid sweetener (coconut nectar, honey, agave, or maple syrup)
pinch of pink Himalayan salt
topping* (raw cereal crumble, cacao nibs, dried mulberries, etc.)
If dates are not most, make sure to soak them. Combine all ingredients in a small food processor and blend until smooth. Add additional milk if mixture seems too thick. Top with your favorite topping and enjoy!
