Spirulina pie is definitely one of my favorite deserts. It tastes like green ice cream pie, with a nice dense crust underneath. Whenever you are having a dinner party, this is a nice way to end on a high note, and impress your friends! Plus you’ll be having the most nutritious desert in the world, since the algae spirulina is arguably (Dr. Gabriel Cousens would be on that team) the number one food in the world.
So this past Saturday night I had a little dinner party. I made this desert the morning of, so it could still freeze in time for dinner. I didn’t have cashews, which I usually use. But I did have tons of Brazil nuts. With this little modification in the recipe, the texture of the pie changed and came out better than ever! Such are the important subtleties of raw food ingredients and their properties. ☺ Maybe it has to do with the different fat in the Brazil nut- which is also really high in selenium- but the green ice cream part held together much nicer. The taste is pretty similar (which is yum). So below is my amended recipe. Oh yeah, I forgot to remind you that coconut oil stimulates your thyroid and metabolism, you will not gain weight from this- though it is will increase your beauty. Read on:
Spirulina: All the essential amino acids in correcte poportion, full of Vitamin B12, vitamins, glycolipis, 17 different beta-carotenoids, minerals (especially iron and magnesium), GLA, and over 2,000 enzymes. Unlike other algaes, spirulina’s cell walls have high concentrations of mucopolysachharids, which are easily digested and used to form protein and the building blocks of cell membranes. Also very alkalizing and healing. What an amazing anti-aging, beautifying food!!!
Another one of my favorite dessert recipes is my truffles recipe, yummy!
Spirulina Pie Revisited
- - 3/4 cup water
- * 1/4 cup Brazil nuts
- * 1/4 cup coconut oil
- * 1/2 cup maple syrup
- * 2 Tbs. spirulina *** which you can buy at the health food market, Wholefoods or online.
- * 1 Tbs. pure cacao powder
- - 2 cups finely ground raw almonds
- - 1/3 cup pitted dates
- To make the crust mix the ground almonds and pitted dates in a bowl. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of a 5-inch pie tin.
- In a blender, combine the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour this liquid mixture onto the pie crust and freeze overnight, or at least 4-6 hours before serving. Almost better than ice cream!
