Raw Cherry Crisp with Chia and Dates

Serves 8
Time 10 min
Sweet cherries get a flavorful topping made from dates, almonds and nutritious chia seeds. This is a superb fresh dessert, yet it is healthful enough to serve for snacks. Watch our how-to video.
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds (about 8 cups) cherries pitted and quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice divided
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Method

Toss cherries with 2 tablespoons of the orange juice and vanilla. Spoon into an 8-inch-square dish and smooth the top. In a food processor, combine dates, almonds, chia seeds and cinnamon and process until coarsely ground. Pour in remaining 1 tablespoon orange juice and pulse until combined. Spoon chia mixture evenly over the top of cherries and serve, or cover and refrigerate up to 3 days.
