    I'm out in Vancouver, so I'm posting on PST. Sorry I hope you'll still let me enter.

    From Veronica The Low Fat Vegan Chef

    Low Fat Raw Vegan Peach Mango Blueberry Crumble

    Filling:
    3 ataulfo mangoes, diced
    2 white peaches peeled and diced
    1 cup blueberries
    2 tbsp lemon juice

    Crumble topping:
    1/4 cup pecans
    1/2 cup dates depitted
    2 1/2 tbsp dried unsweetened coconut flakes
    1 tsp tahitian vanilla
    1 tsp ceylon cinnamon
    1 tsp psyllium powder

    Place filling in a pie dish or pan and stir to mix the fruit together.

    Place the crumble topping in a food processor and pulse until the pecans are combined with the dates and it's chunky.

    Take the filling in a spoon or in your hand and crumble it evenly over top of the filling. You should have enough to cover most of it for a thin topping.

    Garnish with additional blueberries or fruit slices on top. And serve.

    *Tip for best results use fresh ripe mangoes and peaches that give when you touch them, and fresh soft dates. If you have dried dates and refrigerate them, take them out of the refrigerator to soften before putting in the food processor. If you have delicious dates, it really makes this recipe decadent.
