St. Paddy’s Pi

Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day!!! And happy almost Pi Day!!! I was at a super fun vegan girls pizza party the other day and someone mentioned these two days coming up this week and I could not believe that not only had I forgot, but had no cool themed recipes ready to go. Enter panic mode! Sometimes panicking makes me rush through things and end up with a horrible recipe that doesn’t work out.

But sometimes, just sometimes, it produces utter & delicious MAGIC.

St. Paddy’s Pi

Crust

1/2 cup of walnuts

1/2 cup of pecans

8 dates (soaked in warm water for a few minutes)

2 tbsp of water (use the water you used to soak the dates)

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

a pinch of sea salt

**Note: I don’t like much crust to my pies, if you prefer a thicker crust – double this recipe

-Place the nuts in a food processor & process until broken up. Add the remaining crust ingredients and pulse until well combined and the mixture sticks together (add more water if needed). Press this into a lightly greased pie plate (I just brushed mine lightly with coconut oil). Give your food processor a good rinse.

Filling

1 ripe avocado, peeled & pit removed

1 kiwi, peeled & roughly chopped

the juice of 1 lime

1/8 cup of maple syrup (I don’t like things too sweet, so you may want to try 1/4 cup)

a sprinkle of sea salt

-Place all of the ingredients in your food processor and blend until well combined. Pour onto the crust & put the pie in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set.

This pie is best eaten same days as the colour can go a little brown after a day or so from the avocado.

Mmmmmmm pie…

Isn’t she a beaut? I love green things!

For fun, I cut out a 4-leafed clover stencil & sprinkled the middle of the pie with some spirulina. If you are new to spirulina, you may want to go easy on it, it takes a bit to get used to. Once you do – you’ll LOVE it!

I hope you all have a super fun Pi Day this Friday! If you are a geek or are married to one like me – you know all about this fun day. If not – check out some info here.

  1. How cute is this pie! Love the clover on top, very creative. I agree, spirulina is an acquired taste (so is dulse!) but I have grown to like it.

    My high school sweetheart was born on Pi day, so I know ALL about it, he he he.

  2. I can’t stand dulse! Your spiraling pie was pretty good, although I couldn’t eat a large quantity before I felt overwhelmed.

    This looks cute!

  3. Kiwi and avocado! Brilliant idea! And what a great idea to make a spirulina clover! I swear I have green lips from my smoothies when I leave the house every morning. Never thought of using it to decorate a pie! So creative! Thanks for sharing this at Raw Foods Thursdays!

  4. You are too cute! Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! :)

    Hope your week is great! Can’t wait to see what you link up this week!
