Sweet Strawberry Pie

This raw dessert is off the hook delicious...and so easy to make, you will want to live on it all through strawberry season.

2 pounds fresh strawberries, tops removed, quartered
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
Sea salt
2 cups raw almonds

1 3/4 cups pitted dates


Combine strawberries, lemon juice, vanilla, rice syrup and a pinch of salt in a bowl and toss to combine. Set aside while you make the crust. Place almonds in a blender and pulse on high until they resemble bread crumbs. Empty into a 9-inch pie plate. Place dates in blender with about a teaspoon of water and pulse on high until well-chopped it will be a little clumpy. Combine almonds and dates until they hold together and then press evenly onto the bottom and sides of pie plate to form a crust. Spoon berries generously into the crust, discarding any remaining liquid. Refrigerate for 2 hours before slicing into wedges and serve. 

Makes 6-8 servings.
