Raw Blackberry Pie

At the height of the season fresh fruit and berries are just too beautiful to cook!  This is a very simple raw pie to prepare and you can substitute your favourite fruit for the blackberries if desired. Blueberries, raspberries, peaches, pears and nectarines are all equally delicious.  I spooned my pies into small ring moulds and then layered leftover crust and filling into little mason jars for lunch the next day. You can also make one larger pie.

~ 2 cups organic raw coconut flakes
~ 1/2 cup hemp seeds
~ pinch of salt
~ 2 tbsp. coconut oil
~ 2 tbsp. honey or maple syrup

Place all ingredients in a food processor. Process until crust is crumbly but sticks together when pinched. Press into a pie plate, small tart tins or small mason jars.


Filling:

~ 1 cup blackberries pureed with 1/3 cup soft Medjool dates and a tsp. of vanilla to make a jam (these blackberries don’t have to be perfect! Save the perfect ones to stir into the jam in the next step.) 
~ 4 cups ripe blackberries
~ 1 tsp. lemon juice


Stir the 4 cups of perfect blackberries into the jam with the lemon juice. Spoon onto the crust.

Cashew Cream Topping:

~ 11/2 cups raw cashews
~ 1 tbsp. lemon juice
~ pinch of salt
~ 3 tbsp. coconut oil
~ 1/4 cup agave
~ 1/2 cup water

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. Add a dollop to each piece of pie before serving.
