Red White and Blueberry Pie

Ingredients:

  • For granola pie crust:
  • 2 cups natural/gluten-free/free-from granola (diet depending)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (shelled)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • For the pie filling:
  • 1 quart blueberry flavor frozen yogurt (plain is fine, as is normal ice-cream!)
  • For the fruit coulis':
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 2 scant teaspoons cornstarch
  • 6 oz blueberries
  • 6 oz raspberries
  • juice of 1 lemon, separated in two
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish

Directions:

  • Start by preheating your oven to 160ºC/320ºF.
  • Grab your food processor and chuck in all of the pie crust ingredients. Blend until broken down a little and well incorporated (a bit of texture is good). Top tip: An even coating of coconut oil throughout the mix here will ensure you will have no sticking issues later on.
  • Lightly coat a (preferably) ceramic 9" pie dish with cooking spray and throw in your crust mix (not literally).
  • Don't worry if it looks like a lot- we like thick crusts on pies AND it will compact a considerable amount. Press well into the dish, ensuring to get it up the sides as best you can.
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 10 minutes. Pull out and leave to cool completely.
  • Spoon the fro-yo into your base and spread to the edges. You want to leave a little bit of crust here. Pop in the freezer to get cold for at least an hour.
  • Meanwhile, in two separate saucepans over medium heat- if you have the tools and space- make your fruit coulis'. Add your blueberries, 1 scant teaspoon cornstarch, 1 tbsp agave syrup and half your lemon juice into one pan. Stir to combine and cook down until thick and delicious. Repeat with raspberries (and the same ingredients).
  • Leave them both to cool before pushing each through a sieve. Pop in two separate sandwich bags and snip off the corners in order to create your makeshift piping bags (or just use piping bags)
