Coconut Pudding *raw vegan*

Oh my, this is a yummy treat!

If you like coconut, you're going to love this little recipe. You can serve it as a dessert and your guests will think you're amazing, but it's healthy enough to eat for breakfast so why not?

I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite raw vegan recipe books, The Raw Truth by Jeremy A. Saffron. I've changed the recipe a wee bit to suit my sweet tooth.

meat of 2 young coconuts
young coconut water
4 medjool dates
1 frozen ripe banana
maple syrup to taste
1tsp pure vanilla extract

Soak the dates in a small amount of the coconut water for about an hour or just until the dates become soft. Toss the dates, soaking water, young coconut meat and frozen banana and vanilla into your blender and blend it up. Add more coconut water to facilitate blending. Add maple syrup and coconut water until the pudding is to your desired texture and sweetness. That's it!

You can serve this right away or make it a few hours ahead of time. Coconut pudding keeps well in the fridge overnight but I'm not sure how long it keeps after that- it's never lasted that long in our fridge!
