|Blue Heaven Frozen Pie|
We are soooo blessed in having a bounty of organic blueberries growing on a U-Pick farm just a short drive from us. Last night we dropped in and picked 12 pounds of the yummies. Before they go into the freezer I thought it would be nice to make us a pie. The following is an adaptation of a recipe by Rhonda J. Malkmus who originates most of the recipes on the "Hallelujah Acres" site. This is a nutritious treat (if you don't have allergies to nuts, that is)with just a little sweetener (raw honey and dates) and a smidge of salt, no dairy, eggs or gluten. Refreshing and delicious!
The Raw Crust:
1 cup Sunflower Seeds
1 cup Walnuts
1 cup Dates
¼ tsp. vanilla teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
Blueberry-Banana Pie Filling
5 cups Blueberries
¼ cup Virgin Coconut Oil (solid not liquid)
¼ cup Raw Honey
Pie Crust Recipe Directions
In food processor using “S” blade, process sunflower seeds, walnuts, vanilla and salt until pea size. Add dates and continue processing until well combined. Press evenly into 9” pie plate.
Blueberry Pie Filling Directions
Put 4 cups of blueberries, 2 bananas, coconut oil and honey in food processor. Using “S” blade process until smooth and creamy. With a spoon, fold in remaining blueberries and pour into pie shell. Chill at least 3 hours.
To your living health!
