Mango Pudding
by Trish
2 Mangos
1/4 Lime (Optional)
Shredded Coconut & Chopped Pecans, to taste

Use a vegetable peeler to peel mangos. Then place a knife flush to one of the flat sides of the mango pit and cut the mango away from the pit. Add 1/4 lime and blend until perfectly smooth.

To complete the dessert, pour into dessert cups/dishes and add shredded coconut and chopped pecans to taste.
This also tastes good with just the pureed mango

Brazil/Papaya Torte

Thanks Ross Morben

3 cups Brazil Nuts (soaked in water overnight)
3 cups Dates (soaked in water overnight
2 cups freshly grated Coconut meat
1 cup of Carob powder.
Fresh fruit--I used Papaya and Strawberries.
1 cup Cashews or Pecans (soaked in water overnight)
1 cup Dates (soaked in water overnight)
5 heaping tablespoons Carob powder
Process the Brazil Nuts and Dates through Champion juicer (with blank
installed), mix together adding the carob powder as you go. Take half of the mix and add the shredded coconut. This becomes the torte's "crust" which is spread inside a "Springform" cake pan (cover the bottom and sides with about a 3/8" layer). Cover the bottom with a layer of sliced Papaya Take the remaining half of the brazil nut/date/carob mix and layer it over the Papaya. Layer Strawberries on top of this. Process the Cashews or Pecans and dates through the Champion, mix together with the Carob powder to make the icing. Layer the icing on top of the strawberries. Refrigerate or enjoy immediately!!

The candy floss tart

thanks Shazzie!
This is such a sugar pink colour, it glows! But don't mess with the sweet sugary vixen lurking at the bottom of this drink -- she might just turn around and bite you! Serves 4
3 pink grapefruits
2 limes
2 ripe soft pears
2 cups of melon
Remove the citrus peel and juice all the ingredients in a juicer. Alternatively, juice the citrus in a citrus juicer, and add everything to a blender and blend, you can strain this if you like.
