Makes about 20

COCONUT CREAM

2 cups fresh coconut meat
1 cup coconut water
1. In a Vita-Mix, combine the coconut meat and coconut water. Blend until thick and creamy, like heavy cream.

2. Refrigerate and shake before using.

PANCAKES

2 cups pecans, soaked for 8 hours
2 cups pine nuts
2 ripe bananas
1 cup agave nectar
Seeds from 2 vanilla beans
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups fresh blueberries, muddled
1. In a Vita-Mix, combine the pecans, pine nuts, bananas, agave, vanilla seeds, and salt. While the machine is running, carefully remove the lid and using a rubber spatula, stir the mixture to make sure it is continuously turning over. Add 1 tablespoon water, if necessary. Blend until smooth. Remove from the machine and fold in the blueberries.

2. With a 1/4-cup ladle, pour the batter into Teflex-lined dehydrator racks, leaving at least a 1/2 inch between the pancakes. They should be 1/2-inch thick. Dehydrate for 8 hours. Flip the pancakes onto clean Teflex sheets and dehydrate 8 hours longer. They should be soft and fluffy, not hard.

3. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve with coconut cream. Adapted from “Raw Food for Everyone’’
