    Would love to try your bluevado pie. Looks like something the kids would love. What are coconut and date rolls?


    • They’re literally mashed dates rolled in coconut. You can buy them in health food stores and in the fruit & veg section in some supermarkets. You can substitute medjool dates and desiccated coconut if you can’t get the rolls.
