Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, the queen of low fat raw vegan recipes, blows us away with a fabulously healthy rendition of cherry cobbler, just in time for cherry season! This recipe could definitely serve more than 1 but since it is so low in fat and high in nutrition you could really consume the whole thing yourself and not feel a tinge of guilt! This recipe is a 4 part layered masterpiece with fresh cherry and date puree, the meat of one young coconut, and optional almonds and cinnamon. Enjoy for dessert or as a yummy breakfast to begin a highly energized day!
