    I love your project recipes!!! Thanks for taking time out of your busy busy day to share this. I really enjoy following step-by-step instructions, especially those accompanied by visual aids. You KNOW I love me some good food porn, especially when it comes to desserts. 😀
    Luurrrve how pretty your tart came out! I’m def. making this… well, someday. This dessert is going onto my to-make list once I get my hands on a food processor!

    Wow…that’s a massive ingredients list! Love the dates, though. One of my favorite things ever!

    I feel you on the sleep thing. I haven’t had a full night’s sleep in 10 months. And I want another baby! I must be losing my mind (sleep deprivation will do that….maybe some of your tart will bring me back to my senses…:)

    You’re amazing, lady. Seriously. I now feel utterly embarrassed about how much time I spend fluffing around… though I’ve been trying to make the most of my bludge-time because tomorrow I get 45 essays to mark in a week, then the day they’re due I get another 55 to mark, then I have to write a guest lecture, and at the same time my PhD starts for real, so my life is about to get crazy busy. Translation: There is now way I’ll be making this in the future, but that doesn’t mean I can’t drool 😉

    P.S. Another for our synchronicity bank- I, too, take at least an hour to get to sleep every night. It is Le Suck.

    love the food porn! haha

    I do enjoy making ‘project recipes’ though I don’t make them as frenquently as I add them to my list. 🙂

    Your tart looks amazing, btw. It’s definitely going on ‘the list’ 😉

    I have to say this is a masterpiece..just a “couple” ingredients in it though, huh 🙂 Wow girl, job well done!

    Your comment to me about explaining, justifying, and just going with the flow, vegan or not, enjoying life, chilling out…all that jazz, yep, totally agree. I have to partially couch myself on my blog otherwise the vegan police do come out and literally threaten me and stalk me and send me hate mail so that’s why I am careful about what/how I say things but yeah girl, buttery nipple shots do rock 🙂

    Amber, your blogs are a fun read. I am also very impressed by your daily routine. The tart looks delicious. I may have to undertake this, though to be honest, I’m a disaster in the kitchen.

    That crust! I really just want to eat all of that crust!

    Ugh and I feel yah on being busy. I’m up at 5 to work out. Leave for work at 6:45, home at 6:30 and in bed by 9. It takes a toll day after day!

    This was superb. I’m certainly getting into this raw dessert thing. Please make more sweet stuff, sweet stuff!

    So glad you were inspired by my original recipe. I love the fact that raw is so forgiving and flexible……..you can absolutely replace so many ingredients, and while the results may vary…they almost always taste yummy!!! I LOVE MOUSSE cake!!!! Great job!

    Great job! Once I made this recipe, it was so easy to make almost any mousse/cheesecake. Just switch the extracts…add a bit of this or that..and you have so many varieties. It always feels like a “project” the first time you do it…but once you realize these ingredients mixed together give you that luxurious creaminess – it’s so worth it for the mouth feel. LOL…

    Hi Amber, I have a question, I went looking for the ingredient psyllium husk powder. The only thing I could find said it was used for ease of colon movement(to put it as gently as possible). Is that the right stuff. If it would not be to much trouble could you send me a link as to where I might purchase it.

    Thank-you for your help,

  12. suzie blair

    Thank-you. No, I will try and find it at my local health food store. If I can’t find it there I will order it. I figure if you used it once, you will probably use it again. So I might as well have it.
