Figs! Such a strange, unusual and very healthy fruit. A 1/2 cup of figs contains 74 calories and 1 g of fat.
The most impressive element of the fig is cellulose, which lowers cholesterol, helps the digestive system to work better and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes. 1/2 cup contains 2.9 grams of fiber, 232 milligrams of potassium, a large amount of vitamin K, which is responsible for blood clotting.
A gentle lemon cream in conjunction with a mildly sweet fig gives a very unusual combination.
The base, which includes just walnuts and raisins, makes the cake sweet enough without the addition of sugar, syrup or honey.
In this recipe, I do not use dates and coconut oil.
No oil this time!
A very simple and delicious pie with a minimum of ingredients!
A great find for those who like slightly sugary desserts and light sourness.
My family was very pleased, I hope that you will appreciate this pie as well.
Ready? Set? Let’s go cooking!
We will need: (1 large pie)
For the base:
1.5 cups (1 cup – 250 ml) of walnuts
1 cup of dark raisins
For the fig cream.
1 cup of cashews
1/2 cup almond or any other milk
7-8 fresh dark figs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
For lemon cream
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 almond or any other milk
3-4 tbsp. of lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon peel (optional)
Soak cashews in cold water for a day. I advise doing this in the fridge, as in warm temperatures, nuts can turn bad.
Grind the walnuts.
The mixture should become sticky and slightly oily. Press it down into the form.
Drain the water from the cashews and divide the nuts for the two different creams. Cut off the hard ends of the figs and put them into the blender together with the rest of the ingredients for the fig cream.
Milk is always better to add gradually, since the size of the figs can differ, and as a result, you may need less liquid.
You should get a homogeneous cream.
Pour it over the base, then put it in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
Mix everything for the lemon cream.
Pour over the fig cream. Put it in the freezer until it freezes.
Decorate with fresh figs or other berries.
Incredibly delicate, tasty and healthy!
It’s good to know how to cook, right? Haha. Bon appetit!
