When we talk about desserts, we are primarily interested in the taste and ease of preparation. There’s nothing wrong with that here. The glaze does not require special skills to work with chocolate, which is good to remember when hot weather can interfere with the tempering process. The dessert can be stored frozen. 3 Desserts based on fermented cashew cream.
This version of the dessert has a number of advantages in terms of composition:
– the fermentation process and the presence of a probiotic in the composition contribute to improving the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, the state of immunity and metabolism;
– coconut oil with its saturated fatty acids, which provide numerous health benefits, as well as promote weight loss and stimulate metabolism;
– cashew nuts are a natural antidepressant.
– high concentration of cocoa and strawberry antioxidants, which slow down the aging process and resist oxidative processes in the body;
— as well as a shock dose of magnesium and vitamin C, which are deficient in 80% of people;
— at the same time, there is a complete absence of animal products, refined sugar and heat treatment.

3.Pie without baking with pecans. 3 Desserts based on fermented cashew cream.
You can experiment and change the proportions of the ingredients — this will give the cake its own special taste and consistency.
Designed for 3 servings
Base (bottom crispy layer):
Pitted dates 5.29oz
Sea or Himalayan salt (optional) 1 teaspoon
Creamy top layer:
Cashew nuts 3.53 oz
pecans 3.53 oz
dates 1 medium cup
Juice of half a lemon
Coconut oil 3 tablespoons
Drinking water 1/3 cup
Cinnamon 1 teaspoon
Sea or Himalayan salt 1 teaspoon
Vanilla extract 1 teaspoon
If desired, you can decorate the pie with nuts mixed with sweet syrup and salt:
Pecans 20 pcs
Jerusalem artichoke syrup 2 teaspoons
Sea or himalayan salt 1 teaspoon
Soak the cashews and dates for the top layer in sufficient drinking water for about 2-3 hours.
Using a blender, grind the pre-washed pecans until fine flour is obtained and set aside in a separate bowl. It is important to do this with a clean blender, before mixing and chopping other ingredients.
Use a blender to chop the nuts for the bottom layer of the cake-almonds and walnuts. You should get not too small nut crumbs.
Chop the dates finely for the base and mix them with the nut crumbs and salt.
The resulting mixture should be laid out in an even layer in a pie dish. The foundation is ready. It can be temporarily put in the refrigerator. Now let’s take the top layer.
Drain the cashew water and rinse with drinking water.
Using a blender, mix the cashews with water until a homogeneous creamy mass is obtained.
Continuing to beat the mass with a blender, add to it the juice of 1/2 lemon, previously chopped pecans, coconut oil, soaked dates, cinnamon, salt and vanilla.
The mass should be quite dense and homogeneous, but not too thick. If necessary, you can add a little more water. There should not be too much water, so that the cake does not turn into ice.
The resulting cream should be laid out in an even layer in the mold on top of the main bottom layer.
Put the pie in the freezer overnight or for 3-5 hours.
Remove the mold from the freezer and put it in the refrigerator about half an hour before serving.
To give the cake a festive look and emphasize its nutty taste, mix the halves of pecans with sweet syrup and salt and put them in any order on the cake.
