Today I would love to introduce you to a great raw strawberry pie recipe. I made this pie last year for the Fourth of July. It was so good - that is why more than half of it was gone before I even got to take a picture! So easy to make and a lovely raw dish, perfect for the summertime!
Adapted from a recipe by Christina Pirello
2 lbs. fresh strawberries, quartered
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
2 cups raw almonds
1 1/2 cups pitted dates
Combine strawberries, lemon juice, vanilla, rice syrup, and toss to combine. Set aside while you make the crust. Place almonds in a blender and pulse on high until crumbly. Remove from blender. Place dates in blender with about 1 tsp. water and pulse on high until well-chopped; mixture will be a little clumpy (add more water if necessary). Combine almonds and dates in blender and pulse until well combined. Press mixture evenly onto the bottom and sides of pie plate to form a crust. Spoon berries into the crust, making sure to discard any remaining liquid. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Enjoy!
I created a video for this recipe! Take a look here!
