Recipe Directions

Crust:

Place almonds or pecans in food processor and process with the S blade until crumbled. Add coconut oil, sea salt and vanilla and pulse a couple of times. Add the dates last, one at a time and pulse until the crust holds together when you squeeze it between your fingertips. If the crust does not hold, add more dates (again one at a time). Press into oiled (with coconut oil) tart or pie pan. Chill in Freezer for 30 minutes before adding filling.

Filling:

Blend all ingredients well in a Vitamix blender if you have one. Pour part of the filling into the pie crust (just enought to cover the bottom). Take some of the strawberries you cut up for the topping and scatter them on top of the filling. Pour the rest of the filling on top and place in freezer for 1-2 hours until firm. Decorate with the rest of your cut up strawberries. This pie needs to stay refrigerated to keep its firmness so make sure you keep in cold up until serving!

Phytofoods's Thoughts

By Phytofoods

Organic strawberries are starting to pour in from California. I picked up a couple of pounds the other day and made this pie. I adapted a recipe of Matthew Kenney's from his book Everyday Raw. He is one of the original owners of Pure Food and Wine in New York. FYI....I tested this out on 5 different children and they all loved it! My son Isaac does NOT like crust (as he informs me every time I make a raw pie) so I pour some into a little bowl for him to eat like a pudding.

True, the cashews labeled as "raw" at Whole Foods and most other HFSs are not truly raw, however, it is possible to get raw cashews if you're willing to pay a bit more. This is where I get mine.

cashews are not raw. they are roasted (usually twice) as part of the method from removing them from the caustic shell and seed coating. if you are attempting to maintain a completely raw diet, you should not consume cashews.

Soaking the cashews also allows for a creamy consistency for you pie. If you don't soak the cashews you would definitely need a vitamix to get a completely smooth texture

Soaking cashews make them more easily digestible.

Hi I'm still new to this and learning. I want to make this but have a question first. Why soak cashews? And do you soak regular cashews in just water? Can you use regular cashews in this recipe without soaking?

Thanks!!!
