chocolate violet cake

Well, I just made this and it is quite delicious. Make it for yourself and let me know how you like it. Crust • 2 cups hazelnuts • 1 cup dried apricots (organic/unsulphured) • 3/4 cup fresh water In the VitaMix, put 1 cup hazelnuts in the pitcher and blend until it turns into a powder. Empty into a large bowl. Repeat with the 2nd cup of hazelnuts. Then add 1 cup dried apricots. Add about 3/4 cup water and blend until it looks like a jam. Scrape out into the hazelnut powder and mix together. Stir until evenly mixed and then press into the bottom of a pie dish or spring form pan. Filling • 2 cups raw cashews • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries • 1/4 cup coconut oil • 2 Tbsp cacao butter • 1 Tbsp cacao nibs • 2 Tbsp raw agave Blend in the VitaMix until smooth. Pour into the crust and decorate with fresh blueberries, orange peel shavings, or whatever you'd like. Put in the fridge or freezer to set. Serve and enjoy!
