Deb Klungle from Nourished Body/Satisfied Soul is a certified raw food chef, nutritionist, & educator from both regenerationRAW & Alissa Cohen.

She started Nourished Body|Satisfied Soul because she is a long-time vegan & a passionate advocate for natural health.

She is always offering classes on how to make raw, vegan cooking easy! Please check out her website to see when you can fit one into your schedule. It’s well worth it, especially is you’re just starting out eating raw or vegan, or thinking about it. It can all seem very overwhelming, but Deb does a great job with simplifying things. If you’ve been at it for a while, she can offer inspiration, and twists on things you may already be making.

This is a totally raw, completely healthy recipe, and let me tell you, it’s now replacing my current go-to pumpkin pie recipe.

I’ll talk more about Deb and all the many things that she does when I post the show, but for now you can check out her website, and try this amazing pie!

CRUST
1½ c. pecans
4 dates, pits removed
1 T maple syrup
Celtic sea salt or pink Himalayan salt to taste
Pulse ingredients in food processor until nuts are coarsely chopped.

Mix until desired consistency (about 1 minute).

Press into 8” glass pie plate.

FILLING
1/3 c. carrot juice
½ c. cashews, soaked in water for at least 4 hours
½ c. coconut oil
1/3 c. maple syrup
1/3 c. coconut nectar
1½ t. cinnamon
Blend in high-speed blender until smooth (1-2 minutes).
Pour into crust.
Freeze until set.

Use grade B maple syrup because it has a higher mineral content so it’s more nutritious.

Whipped Cream

BASIC RECIPE
1 c. cashews, soaked in water for at least an hour
¼ c. coconut oil
¼ c. water
2 T Ultimate Sweetener xylitol
Celtic sea salt or pink Himalayan salt to taste
Mix all ingredients in high-speed blender until smooth (1-2 minutes).
Add more water if necessary to achieve desired consistency.

Nutritional notes:
Xylitol is typically derived from corn which contains high levels of mycotoxins & fungi & is often genetically
modified. But the Ultimate Sweetener brand is a clean form of xylitol. It is made from birch trees & is a natural
by-product of making paper.
