Raw Vegan Strawberry Pie

Submitted by: ACSMITHIE

Introduction

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    2 quarts of strawberries
    1 3/4 cups medjool dates
    2 cups almonds
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    juice of half a lemon

Directions

In a bowl, combine strawberries, lemon juice, vanilla and brown sugar. Mix well and put in refrigerator.

Grind the almonds if you havenít already. Put them in another bowl and start working on dates. Remove pits from dates by slicing them in half (not all the way) and removing the pits. Flatten the dates and mince them into little bits. Your knife will get a little sticky, and date slices might stick to the other side of knife, but thatís okay. Just move them down to the cutting board and keep mincing them. Place minced dates into the bowl of ground almonds. If your hands are sticky from dates, donít bother washing them.

Use your hands to mix the dates and almonds together into a dough. It will take some kneading, but it will work out, I promise. It should have a consistency of a slightly dry play-doh or clay. Form a ball.

Place the date-almond ball into a pie pan (if you are worried about things sticking, put a little bit of canola or grapeseed oil on the pie pan and grease thoroughly) and mold it into the pie pan as best as you can. Take the strawberries out of the fridge, and using a slotted spoon, pile berries into the crust, leaving liquid behind. You can save the liquid to put into sparkling water with maybe some sliced limes or for making a small batch of strawberry lemonade, or if you are feeling particularly plucky, you can drink it straight up- itís so good!

This is the hard partÖyou have to put it in the fridge to set for two hours.
