From the book Ani’s Raw Food Desserts by Ani Phyo.
Pineapple Icebox Dessert
2 cups cashews
Seeds from 1 vanilla bean or 1 tablespoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1 1/2 cups cashews
1/3 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup liquid coconut oil
1/4 cup filtered water, as needed
2 1/2 cups chopped cored pineapple
(In her format, not my usual numbered steps.)
To make the crust, combine the cashews and vanilla in the food processor and chop to a crushed wafer texture. Add the agave syrup and process to mix well. Sprinkle half of the crust onto the bottom of a loaf pan.
To make the filling, combine the cashews, agave syrup, and coconut oil in the high-speed blender and blend until smooth, adding water as needed to create a creamy texture. Spoon the mixture into a mixing bowl, add the pineapple, and stir to mix well. Spoon the filling into the loaf pan and sprinkle the remaining crust on top. Pat lightly. Freeze for 2 hours or until chilled.
Will keep for 4 to 6 days in the fridge or for several weeks in the freezer.
Hey, this is from our Joyce's blog! I recognize the pictures she posted on the forum.
The recipe looks pretty good to me, I might make it soon, but with less cashews too... or maybe I'll skip the crust?
Carolg, did Ani Phyo post her recipe publicly on the internet? If not, should we get her blessing/permission to put her recipe out on an open forum like this? The recipe is from her copywrited book.
I just opened up her new book and here's what's in print:
"All rights reserved. No part of this publicationmay be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted, in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise, without the permission of the publisher.
Because the recipe is copywrited, I didn't copy it onto my blog. That could get me into trouble. But there's no problem with mentioning the ingredients which is what I do for recipes coming from a book. Her book is only like $12 bucks. I highly recommend it! Heck, it's cheaper than a jar of coconut oil
Yea I didn't realize this wasn't allowed (it is allowed with the Veganomicon, but I guess that's a special case). That's why I'm not posting any more recipes
hmmmmmmmmmmm the way J.O.Y.C.E had it just listing majority of the ingredients as she made the cake on her blog is o.k. She did not disclose the recipe! or saying '''adopted''' from a reciepe and then list the ingredients not measurements...and add or change your own ingredient......
p.s. Ani's book -- the recipes! she did not give credit to where she got the recipes from for many recipes..... and changing pistachios for other nuts does not 'her' recipe make either.....who's Peach Cobbler recipe is it????pistachio's or other nuts????? ha???
.........so who is getting 'legal' ??? or 'illegal'' or follows copywrited protocol???? I'm just wondering how far will people push this issue? WOW!
to Health! Joz

I think there is no reason for freaking out. We are posting recipes here with the best intention, promoting healthy eating. Credit has been given to the creator of the recipe, so it could even be a good (and free) advertisement, resulting a few more sold books.
I got a courteous email behind the scenes. This person couldn't find recipe anywhere online so I assume that meant I was lying that I found it online. I don't lie. I was at library and not at hm. computer yesterday so it was a time waster to hunt for link that Joz also found and posted. I didn't see that till I got here a little bit ago after my hunt responding to reading that private email. It was found at http://alteredplates.blogspot.com/.
I don't own Ani book but still it was copied from that link.
I gave credit to Ani, I put the book name down, and also I see ANI has several recipes at her blog that have recipe amounts and ingredients. I didn't give it a second thought to ask her permission for copyright protection.
I hope it increases the sales of this great looking book. This was solely intended to share with everyone as I have seen this and other sites do across the net.
Thanks Mosaica for copyright info. I can't imagine these type of sites or blogs avoiding the amounts and the ingredients to a recipe, but anything is possible. I would hate for us to be "afraid" to post recipes with good intentions and lose sleep over copyright laws. Still there will never be another Ani the way she creates stuff, Carmella, Snow, Joyce, Joz and all here.
I hope this is the evidence to the person who wrote me behind the scenes that I wasn't lying, don't and found Ani great recipe online. Yup, online it was and still remains posted at the link I posted.
My friend www.brigittemars.com has plenty of recipes you can see at her website. Knowing her she would not bat an eyelash for you to share them here. Maybe more sales for her books.
Bored and need busy work? Why not hunt down those who post recipes w/ingredient quantities of others? It would be a forever, unending job. I don't want that one. I just rather share, give credit to the author, and if a book, mention the title. I can't see breaking any laws doing it this way, but there is always room to learn if Joyce or someone knows better. I'm not up on the current law today. It could change tomorrow. Whew.
