The most optimal amount of time to soak dates, cashews & almonds is overnight or for 4 hours- although not necessary for these to be AMAZING. What happens when you soak them, is that it makes it easier for your body to digest and will make them smoother and creamier.
There will also be leftover filling- so you can either double the crust recipe or… OR! You can make pumpkin nice-cream. I did actually do a very thorough taste test of this particular method – just add 2 additional bananas to the puree and freeze overnight, giving it a quick stir before you go to sleep.
Miraculously, there is no evidence of this as I did quite enjoy the nice-cream with a cup of coffee in the morning.
