Recipe ~ A Different, Holistically Nutritious Strawberry Pie!

stawberry pieCommitting to a healthy lifestyle does not mean committing to a life that is void of fun, delicious, satisfying treats. In fact, we eat just as much amazing food as the average person.

The difference between what we are doing and what the rest of the population is doing comes down to the quality of the ingredients that go into our treat foods.

Eating healthy should be delicious, and we are never going to compromise on that – either for ourselves or for you. That is why we are firm believers in substitutions.

For instance, when we are making a pie – we use whole nuts, seeds and pseudo grains instead of processed flour. We use cashews for making thick creams rather than processed diary. We use dates, coconut sugar and maple syrup in place of processed white sugar… You get the idea!

For us, eating healthy should never mean deprivation. It should simply mean you still get to eat everything you crave, you just use healthy, whole foods ingredients to make your favourite dishes in place of processed ones!

To get you started, here is an amazing Strawberry Pie recipe that you will be proud to serve guests – not only because it looks beautiful, but because it is absolutely delicious AND nutritious!

Of course if you want to keep the whole thing to yourself, we won’t tell anyone 😉

Strawberry Pie

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1-2 oranges, juiced
  • pinch of salt

Strawberry Cream Layer:

  • 2 cups cashews – soaked for 30-60 minutes
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries
  • pinch vanilla powder or vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Strawberry Topping:

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • ½ cup fresh strawberries
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch vanilla powder or vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


Directions:

For the crust: Place unsweetened coconut in a blender or food processor and blend until a fine powder is created. Remove from blender and place in a large mixing bowl. Repeat this process with sunflower seeds, buckwheat and coconut sugar. Add salt and mix together with your hands until well combined. Add enough orange juice so that your crust sticks together. Press into a lined pie dish and set in the freezer.

For the strawberry cream: Drain and rinse cashews. Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. Pour over crust and place back in the freezer.

For the strawberry topping: Set aside your sliced strawberries. Place remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Arrange sliced strawberries over the strawberry creme layer of your pie, and pour your glaze on top. Freeze for an hour or until set. Enjoy!
