Special Occasion Strawberry Pie
Created By Jackie Graff
3 cups fresh strawberries
1 ½ T. Ground psyllium
6 pitted medjool dates, pitted
1 nut and date pie crust (below)
Place 2 cups of berries in a blender with dates and blend well. Add psyllium blending well. Let this mixture sit for 5 minutes and blend again. Chop the remaining 1 cup of berries and place in a bowl. Blend the blended berries again and add to the chopped berries.
Any berry can be used for this recipe, using enough dates for sweetness, leaving some chopped for texture and enough psyllium to thicken. This pie is extremely delicious!

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup maple syrup or raw honey
cubed fresh pineapple chunks

Combine, chill and eat. Whole intact grains are the next best food to consume after raw fruits and vegetables and provide steady calm energy, fiber and much more. This is one of my favorite healthy dessert recipes that reminds me of traditional rice pudding but has great healthy ingredients. Enjoy this delicious dish for breakfast, dessert or snack.
