Goji & Raw Cacao Filling in Gluten Free Pie Crust


Gluten-Free Pie Crust

Follow my Spunky Gluten-free Pie Crust recipe.

Goji & Raw Cacao Pie Filling

Soak 1/2 cup cashews for at least 3 hours. Rinse in fresh water and strain. Soak 1/2 cup Goji Berries and 2 tbsp Dried Red Tart Cherries for one hour. Strain.

The Goji Berries were so beautiful after soaking for an hour, that I had to take a picture of them.

Add the cashews and the berries to the food processor with:
1 cup coconut milk (or use homemade nut milk, like almond milk, to make the filling raw)
8 soaked pitted dates
5 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
Lastly, right before blending add: 1/4 cup Chia Seeds (packed with omega 3 & 6, protein, potassium and more)

Puree. Pour filling into crust. Refrigerate at least 3 hours.

    I found your blog through the “My years without sugar” blog and am so thankful for these support systems. I have recently cut most sugar out of my diet in order to reduce herpes outbreaks. As a self proclaimed sugar addict, this has been extremely difficult. Thank you for posting these recipes and inspiring me to keep going.

    What a scrumptous looking pie! And I love iHerb too! I linked your post from my new blog :) Thank you for offering this special shopping spree with iHerb!

    What a great giveaway! One of my goals this year is to add a lot more raw foods into my diet and a $50 gc to iherb would certainly help that a long!

  4. Jenny says

    You are so creative! One of the best looking crusts with the best looking ingredients I’ve seen in a while :) Can’t wait to try it!

  5. says

    Awesome giveaway! I have been dying to try Chia Seeds and Cacao. Unfortunately, they don’t quite meet my budgetary requirements this month. This giveaway would be awesome to win!!!!!!!!

    I have ordered from iHerb before but only supplements. I had no idea they had so many raw foods! I will definitely be making this pie – what a great way to use goji berries. Thanks for posting,

    Wow, what a great giveaway Kelly! I’ve had great luck with iHerb (service, selection, and price) and $50 can go far! I could really use a restock of my prenatals as I’ve got about 18 more weeks of pregnancy to get through. 😉

    I think I need to try this pie a.s.a.p.! I’ll probably have to sub dried cranberries for the goji, though, as those aren’t available to me… something I’d love to try if I win the contest! :)

  9. says

    the pie looks so yummy! your crust recipe will be in use really soon :)

    this giveaway is great. i hadn’t heard of iherb.com, but now i think i’ll be making a purchase soon.

    i just found this page right now from abby abanes on fb and im always on the lookout for organic/raw recipes, ESPECIALLY DESSERTS, so regardless of whether i win this or not, i think im going to have to get this book of recipes!

  13. says

    I would love to win the gift certificate, but i honestly hope whoever wins it is someone who is really in need so that they are blessed!!!!

    Your pie looks awesome! And what a great idea to make “cookies” out of the extra dough (but I guess they can’t be considered raw, can they?) – Do they hold up as cookies or crumble? And do you spread the jam before baking? Perhaps that helps hold them together!

    Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    I LOVE iHerb!!!! It is my go-to resource for vitamins, minerals, supplements, and healthy foods! I usually try to shop local – but the savings that I have found on iHerb is amazing – often 1/2 the local price…for that I have to make compromises!

    The Goji Pie looks amazing – I’m not allowed to have fruit right now, so I’ll have to save the idea for another time!

    Thanks for being such an inspiration!

  16. says

    I love iHerb. What a great giveaway! I just recently found your blog, and am anxious to try some of your recipes. I might start with this one.

  17. says

    That pie looks absolutely delightful; almost like pumkin or sweet potato pie. Is the taste similar?

    Anyhow, I love iHerb.com and would love a chance to win the gift card.


  18. Maggie says

    Oh – your pie looks very yum! I’ve never heard of iHerb but have been looking for something just like that -thanks for the heads-up!

  19. says

    this blog is amazing! I have been gluten, dairy and sugar free for years and it is so great to finally find great recipe I can actually use. thanks so much!

  20. says

    Hi Kelly,

    I’m new to the world of ‘dietary restrictions’ blogging and I just love your blog! (and really need to place an amazon order for your cookbook!) I am intolerant of gluten and dairy, but have been avoiding processed sugar as well. So your blog is perfect for me to still eat fun foods! Thanks again,

    ~Aubree Cherie

    Kelly, Your recipes and fabulous photos make my mouth water…yum yum!
    I also thought you’d like to know that the link to your email that’s in a rectangle near the blog, doesn’t work. I had to take some extra time to figure out how to leave a comment.
    PS I hope I win! It would be such fun!

    The pie looks delicious. My mom makes great Gluten Free desserts- I’ll have to try this one sometime. Hope to get to try iHerb.

    I can’t wait to try your recipes! I am happy to see your ingredients are available at iherb. I fancy myself as a gourmet from Berkeley, and now for health reasons I’m an on an anti-candida, anti-gluten, yeast-free diet. This has been discouraging until recently and now that I have found your blog, I am a much happier camper.

  24. says

    We just started a dairy/soy free diet with our 7 1/2 year old daughter. I think your recipes maybe a wonderful tool for us. Thank you!!

    On my way to iHerb to check out what they have. Would LOVE to win the free give-a-way!!

    Hey! Me and my family looove your recipes! I’m actually giving a speech in my college public speaking class using your chocolate chip cookie recipe as a healthy alternative to something like Chips Ahoy!
    Thanks for making awesome recipes!

    You’re indeed doing an amazing job here. I like what you’ve shared here. Keep up the good recipes and all. By the way, I’m a member of a great group who are health enthusiasts that might interest you too. Enjoy life to the fullest!

  28. says

    Thank you for this offer, and the pie recipe. It looks delicious! I need to start using more raw foods for my son, so this would be the perfect opportunity.

  29. says

    I have a question about the pie crust. It looks rather thick, I was wondering if you think it would still work if I halved the recipe and made a thinner crust? Or would it just fall apart on me? I’ve never made a gluten free pie before, and was hoping to make your pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving :) Thank you!!!
