Good for boosting brain health, combating effects of aging, low on the glycemic index and high in fiber, blueberries are a superfood with a far-reaching benefits.
This time of year, fresh blueberries make a great snack, but we love them year-round in our smoothies, and in today’s decadent but guilt-free, gluten-free, dairy-free pie.
Back in the day when Jules was eating a predominantly raw food diet this Raw Blueberry Pie was a true life-saver.
Perfect for your next BBQ or summer gathering, share our Raw Blueberry Pie with your loved ones! Technically this recipe could be a part of the Conscious Cleanse, but because of food combining we recommend it more as part of your 80:20.
