Valentine’s Day Raw Blueberry Pie

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so today I thought I would share with you one of my favorite raw desserts (close tie between this one and our Decadent Raw Brownies).

rawblueberrypie1 Raw Blueberry Pie is the perfect treat to make for yourself and the ones you love. To me there is no better way to express our love and appreciation than with healthy, nutritious food!

For many reasons, February is a favorite time of year for me. It’s a time of celebration and reflection because it happens to also be my birthday month. But even more than that, is that it’s also the month that my hubbie, best friend, dad, sister, late grandma (whom I actually shared a birthday with for 27 years!), and my dear friend and business partner, Jo, also celebrate birthdays.

Birthdays, like Valentine’s Day, are a good excuse to show people how grateful you are that they are at part of your life.

It seems like Valentine’s Day sometimes gets a bad wrap for being a “Hallmark holiday,” but I wholehearted disagree. Like birthdays, Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate LOVE – and I’m not talking just about romantic love.

Perhaps the most important love to talk about is Self-love. I think this quote by best-selling author Brené Brown sums it up perfectly.

“Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.”

Sending you love, appreciation, and the compassion you need to cultivate more Self-love in your life. May your heart always remain open and true.

With Self-love and blueberry kisses,

PS – What are some ways that you’re cultivating self-love? Tell me in the comment section below.

      Let me know what you think. I took this to a party last night…people love it!

  • Tracey Blitz

    Followed the recipe except for the heart pie pan( by the way where is it from?) The taste is
    awesome but the consistency was a bit runny.
    Any suggestions to improve? Thanks

    • Julie Peláez

      Hi Tracey, I got the pie pan from Sur La Table (love that store!). Did you refrigerate after you made? We’re you using frozen blueberries? If so, you need to thaw first then pour off any excess juice. Hope that helps.

  • Jen

    Will frozen blueberries work as we’ll?

  • Jen Kittleson

    Could you use frozen blueberries?

    • Julie Peláez

      Yes! Just thaw them first and if there is a lot of liquid leftover, pour that off before adding to mixture.

    Made the raw blueberry pie a for Valentine’s Day (while cleansing), and it was amazing!! I had to substitute the walnuts for cashews due to a sensitivity I have to walnuts and pecans, and it worked just fine.

    I recently made the Decadent Raw Brownies (post-cleanse) and I don’t think those lasted a full 24 hours in my house! My husband said they were the BEST treat I have made since taking on the Conscious Cleanse lifestyle. Thanks for the yummy recipes! I look forward to whatever come next!

      Awesome Miquela! Thanks for your note. Keep up the healthy fun exploration.
