This combination of apple pie and chia pudding is not only magical it is also completely raw vegan.
There was this #rawyourmeal challenge hosted by my dear friends Edgar (@edgarraw) and Geraldine (@eatwithfingers) on Instagram in June 2016 and I love these kind of things. You share your experiences, you get very creative and you learn so much more about food and your body.
I decided to try my very own challenge out of this – RAW FOR ONE WEEK!
I only ate raw vegan food and educated myself more with this whole topic. Even though my result from this was that I wouldn´t want to go completely raw vegan, I got pretty creative and I felt very good during this week.
The obvious things are raw veggies and fruits but you don´t want that for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 7 days, do you?! So I tried out some sweet stuff like this, cupcakes and cakes and of course a couple of smoothies but also Zoodles for the savoury side!

Ingredients for 1 Jar:
Hand full of a natural Cashew-Hazelnut-Mix
2 tbsp Chia Seeds, e.g. from Berioo
Hand full of natural Cashews
2 tsp Agave
Let the chia seeds soak in 8 tablespoons water over night or at least for 30-60 minutes. Same goes for the cashews – make sure that they are completely covered with water and let them soak for at least one hour or ideally over night.
For the crust which is also crumbled on top, blend the dates with the cashew-hazelnut-mix with a food preocessor and add 1 tablespoon water for extra smoothness. Press 1/3 of the ‘dough’ into a jar or bowl and put it in the fridge while preparing the chia pudding.
Wash and chop the apple by yourself or grate it with the help of a food processor. Blend the dripped cashews until smooth and mix it with the grated apple, the chia pudding and agave for sweetness. Place the pudding on top of your date crust and make some crumbles out of the remained crust to close up the ‘pie’.
