Fruity Goodness

When I think dessert, I think CHOCOLATE. Hands down. But if you're looking for a vegan/gluten free is the Raw Strawberry Pie. Sounds weird, but it is AWESOME.

Raw Strawberry Pie
1 Tbsp. Lemon juice
½ c. brown sugar (crust)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ¾ c. pitted dates
2 c. raw almonds
2 pounds strawberries washed and quartered

In a bowl, combine strawberries, lemon juice, vanilla and brown sugar. Place almonds in food processor and pulse on high until like bread crumbs. Put dates in processor with 1 t. water and pulse until well chopped. Combine almonds and dates until they hold together, press in pie plate. Pile berries on crust (discarding liquid). Refrigerate until served.
