Raw Strawberry Pie
I make this pie several times throughout strawberry season and it is yummy and would be a perfect addition to your Easter meal!!!
Everyone will love it!!
32 oz. of fresh strawberries (4-5 cups)
2 cups of raw nuts (I used almonds and cashews)
3/4 cup of dates
Pinch of salt
6 dates soaked in warm water for about 10 minutes
1 tbsp. of agave nectar
1 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice *plus the zest from a small lemon*
Soak the 6 dates in a bowl of warm water for about ten minutes. In the meantime put nuts, 3/4 cup of dates, and a pinch of salt in a food processor and pulse until broken down and sticky so it will stick together. Press mixture along bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Place crust in the refrigerator to cool down.
Wash and slice all of your berries. Place 1 cup of strawberries, 6 dates removed from water, agave nectar, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and zest from the lemon in your food processor and blend until smooth and set aside.
Remove crust from the refrigerator and layer strawberries in the crust and then pour the strawberry mixture over your layered berries. Put in refrigerator and let sit for at least 2 hours or until set. It was even better the next day.
You can garnish with additional berries if you like!
