Easy as (Raw) Pie...

As promised, here is the delicious raw blueberry pie recipe Mama and Makayla made. Let me say, it was AMAZING!

Fresh Blueberry Pie
2 C almonds
1/2 C dates, seeds removed
pinch of sea salt

5 C fresh blueberries
2 ripe bananas
1 1/2 T Raw Honey

For the crust, in a food processor, grind the almonds until fine. Add the dates and salt and blend until the mixture binds together between your fingers when pinched. Press into 9" glass pie pan and set to one side.

For the filling, in a food processor, combine four cups of the berries, bananas, and honey. Blend until smooth. Remove from processor bowl and stir in remaining berries. Pour into the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least three hours. Serve and enjoy.

Okay, I just had to add this. :)
Annie, our Yorkshire, is a raw food dog! Okay, not really, but her favorite treats are carrots, lettuce, kale, etc... Makayla says she has gone raw. :)

Zac, our Highlander, on the other hand, "likes that heated-up stuff",as Makayla says. :)

Now back to the food...

Here is what Mama and I made. It is incredible! You could feed this to a die-hard bacon lover, and even they would be hooked! It's pretty simple, too.

OH yummy!!! I will have to try the second recipe! We have got to get on picking blueberries. We have blackberries in abundance.
