Cocoa-chini Papa Pie

sufey

For papa’s birthday, we made a pie. A mere sliver of our love for him and mama.

There are no words to describe how grateful I am for my parents, for they have given me everything. It’s my parents who inspire me to do what I love, to work my tushy off, to dream big… and they lead by example. 

All I really want to say today is thank you to all the incredible parents out there. Happy, healthy families are the foundation of happy, healthy societies. Raising love is the most important job in the world, and you’re killin’ it out there.

Love, love and love always,

~ Sufey

Fruity Fiesta | Raw Pie in a Cup!

WARNING: This pie is seductive. Eating this may cause you to love raw, organic goodies!

Growing up, my brothers and I were always fed foods fit for royalty. Mama is an artist, and the infinite love and beauty in her meals nourished our spirits along with our bodies. Her food always looked good, tasted good, and made us feel good- and that’s what I aspire to create in the kitchen!

Our bodies are such magnificent temples. We must cherish our health and worship our senses with vibrant flavours that radiate vitality, energy and life!

INGREDIENTS (all raw & organic if possible- makes 6 scrumptious cups!):

Crust:

  • 2 cups dates
  • 1.5 cups pecans
  • 1.5 cups almonds
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any other nut milk works great!)
  • Unsweetened shredded coconuts

Two layers of fruit filling:

Red-purple fruits (can also be substituted with blueberries, blackberries, etc.):

  • 4 plums
  • 4 figs

Orange-yellow fruits (can also be substituted with mangos, oranges, nectarines, etc.):

  • 2 peaches
  • 1 banana

Optional to blend with fruits:

  • Ginger
  • Mint

Optional décor:

  • 2 kiwis
  • Gogi berries
  • Mint leaves

DIRECTIONS:

Toss pecans, almonds & dates in the food processer to blend, baby, blend! Add nut milk to the slightly crumbly crust and mix it real yummy-like. Try to resist eating the whole delicious mess right away (but you can lick the spoon).

Divide crust into six cups and mold it to the insides of the glasses with a fancy little flat edge around the top. Sprinkle shredded coconut love around the edges.

Blend the purple fruits up together & pour them into each cup. Repeat with the orange fruits, adding ginger or mint if desired. Add another layer if you want. Make polka dots. Play with colours. Let your inner creativity go wild!

Optional décor (as shown in picture): Peel kiwis, cut in half & slice super thin.  Arrange in a pretty flower-like pattern around inner edges of crust. Add mint leaves in between slices of kiwi & two baby gogi berries in the shape of a heart.

Bless with a generous serving of love! Enjoy!!
