What to do with abundant fresh berries???

Make Raw Berry Cobbler, of course........................



I do believe that this is my new favorite dessert. Well, at least for the summer that is. I'm not going to abandon my first dessert love, the cupcake, but I mean yummy dessert with no oven required, how can you beat that on a hot summer day??

Not to mention, as an added bonus you get ALL of the nutrients from the berries, nuts and seeds because they aren't cooked out. And I guarantee, this is one of the healthiest desserts you will ever eat.

Raw Berry Cobbler

Crust:

2 cups Almonds Soaked & Drained

1/2 cup Sunflower seeds Soaked & Drained

2 Tbs Shredded Coconut

1/2 cup Pitted Dates

1/4 cup Lemon Juice

2 Tsp Vanilla extract

1 Tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

Filling:

1 cup raspberries

1 cup blueberries

1 cup Mango, dried and re-hydrated

3 Tbs Agave Nectar

To make the crust: In a food processor, process the almonds, sunflower seeds, coconut, dates, lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Press mixture into a pie plate.

To make the filling: In a food processor, process the berries, mango, and agave. Pour the fruit mixture over the pie crust and refrigerate for two hours or more, allowing the pie to solidify.

That's definitely one I'll have to try. I really need to get a food processor because I want to start eating more raw foods.

Anyway, I really came here to tell you I saw Coldplay last night. They completely blew me away. What a show! I knew it would be great, but it exceeded my expectations for sure! Can't wait to see them again. Next time I'm taking the kids. They love Coldplay and there were actually lots of kids there.

Hey DM - I'm so glad you got to see Coldplay....I'm seeing them again on Friday and I can't freakin' wait!! They have a spectacular show. I've been wanting to take my oldest daughter too, but she's a little sensitive to noise, so maybe if they tour again in a few years, but not now.
