Creamy blueberry & raspberry pie (vegan & sugar free)

This is my favorite pie so far! It has become my favorite breakfast, snack, second dinner, midnight snack.. it just tastes perfect any time of the day! And the best part is, you don’t have to feel guilty about eating this pie, because it’s simply made with nuts, fruits, cacao and cocos. Do i need to say more? Well, maybe that this pie is also very easy and quick to prepare because a foodprocessor will do all the work for you! So what are you waiting for? Hop in to that kitchen!

What you need:

Crust:

  • 150 grams of raw brazil nuts
  • 2/3/4 tablespoons of cocoa powder (depends on how much you want the pie to have hints of cocoa)
  • 90 grams of coconut flakes
  • 8 medjool dates

Creamy fruit layer:

  • 200 grams of raw cashews
  • 200 grams of frozen blueberries and raspberries (Tip! For a summer version of this recipe: add frozen strawberries and cherries!)
  • 6 medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • the juice of half a lemon

 

Method of preparation:

  1. Remove the pits from the dates.
  2. Mix the brazil nuts, cocoa powder, coconut flakes and medjool dates in a foodprocessor till it becomes a sticky substance. You might have to add a bit of water to make crust stick together. If you’d like the crust to be a bit chuncky, don’t let the foodprocessor run too long.
  3. Put the crust in a cake tin and put it aside in the freezer.
  4. Rinse the foodprocessor.
  5. To make the fruit layer, you have to start with making the cashew cream layer. Mix the cashews, the coconut oil and the lemon juice in a foodprocessor till it becomes? smooth and creamy, you might have to add a bit of water. It might take a while before the cashews become a creamy substance!
  6. Put the cashew cream aside in a bowl. You’re now going to mix the frozen fruits with the dates and the vanilla extract in the foodprocessor till it becomes smooth. Don’t forget to taste this delicious mix!
  7. Let the foodprocessor mix the cashew cream with the fruity mixture. Add the cashew cream bit by bit to the fruity mixture.
  8. Take the cake tin out of the freezer and put the creamy fruit layer on top of the crust.
  9. Freeze the pie until solid, this will take about 2 hours.
  10. How to serve: this pie can either be served frozen, or you can defrost it for a more creamy taste! You can defrost the pie by putting it outside of the fridge for a few hours, or overnight by putting the cake in the fridge instead of the freezer.?Decorate it with whatever you have and enjoy!
