No Bake, Berry Pie
I made this recipe months ago, but have been dreaming about it lately so thought I'd finally share it with you all! Perfect for one last grasp at summer (Is September too early to already be dreaming about next summer?). Adapted from Minimalist Baker, you know the ingredients list will be short and the result delicious! Let's dive in to the recipe, and if you make it please let me know what you think!
7 dates, pitted
2 cups raw almonds ( you can use any nut here, such as walnuts)
12 oz of firm silken tofu (pat dry and gently pressed for at least 15minutes)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or small piece of vanilla bean)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1.5 cups of fresh berries
optional: juice of 1 lemon
While waiting for tofu to drain, add nuts to a food processor or blender and mix until a semi-fine meal is formed.
With meal still in blender, add dates on at a time while blending until mixture starts to stick together, similar to dough.
Line a pie dish with parchment paper and spread "dough" out evenly, pressing down. Place another parchment paper on top of it and hold it down with a glass.
Set in freezer to chill
Add drained tofu, lemon juice (if using), vanilla, and maple syrup to blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
Remove crust from freezer and add filling. Chill for about 2-4 hours before adding berries.
