Itty Bitty Baby Blueberry Pies

Category: Raw Foods



Suitable for a: vegan diet





Ingredients:

------------------------------------------------------



2 cups fresh blueberries

2 tsp fresh orange juice

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp grated orange zest plus extra julienned for garnish

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

4 tsp brown sugar

Canola-oil cooking spray

2/3 cup raw almonds

1/2 (packed) cup pitted dates



.





Instructions:

------------------------------------------------------



Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate.



Chop almonds in a food processor until they are the texture of breadcrumbs. Empty into bowl, then chop dates with 1 tsp water in food processor until well chopped (they will be a little clumpy).



Mix with almonds to form a brownish gooy stiff paste.



Divide mixture evenly into 4 golf ball-sized rounds.



Place each ball between 2 pieces of wax paper and press to form a 4-inch crust. Turn up edges if desired, or press into oiled mini tart pans or muffin tins.

Refrigerate 2 hours. Use a spatula to move crusts to serving plates - they'll be sticky if in a tin;



Fill each with 1/2 cup berries and some leftover juices from bowl. Top with orange zest. Yum.

Yum

Those sound awesome. The neat thing to me about raw recipes is that so many of them are so easy to make!
