Anyhoo, I decided to try out my wad of paste (which, unfortunately, looks like something that could get a girl pregnant) in Raw Grasshopper Pie from Pure 2 Raw. I'm loving this Irish moss business.
The crust on this pie was delish. I was happy because it was nut free, and tasted like chocolate cookie crumbs.
The banana cream layer was lovely, but I was kind of "eh" about the mint layer. I had to add a little sweetener as it didn't call for any and my sweet tooth did not approve. All together, with a little improvised raw chocolate chips (1/2 cup cacao, 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/2 cup melted coconut oil, dash of vanilla and sea salt), the pie was yummalicious. Thank you Pure 2 Raw!
It warmed up to -10 today, so we set out on a walk to feel the sun on our faces.
A little dehydrated quiche warmed us right up post-walk. It's actually quite rich- I ate the missing wedge and then had to revert to raw veggies.
Question: Do you think Irish moss is stinky, or that it smells like fresh, salty, sea air?
