Persimmon Pumpkin Pie

Persimmon Pumpkin Pie

There’s no dessert that is more of a holiday classic than pumpkin pie, but sometimes classics can become a little, well, boring. We’ve decided give the pumpkin pie a sweet makeover by adding persimmons, our Vitamin C-packed Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend, and a scrumptious coconut crust. The results were not only delicious, but so nourishing! Both persimmons and coconut are incredibly high in fiber, which means that a small slice of pie was delightfully filling, and it’s hard to feel too bad about indulging in dessert when it’s packed with antioxidants and immunity boosting vitamin C!

Gather This:

  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 1 ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut nectar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons garbanzo bean flour
  • ¾ cup dried figs, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes and drained
  • 3 ripe persimmons, de-stemmed and peeled
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin
  • ¾ cup full fat coconut milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger root
  • ¼ teaspoon of all spice
  • ¼ cup of palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of Philosophie Berry Bliss Superfood Blend 

Do This:

First create the crust by adding macadamia nuts, shredded coconut, vanilla, coconut nectar, coconut oil, and ½ a teaspoon of the salt to a high speed blender and processing until ingredients are well combined. Use a spatula to scrape this mixture into a mixing bowl, add garbanzo bean flour to mixture, and stir until mixture is well combine and forms a crumbly, moist texture. Press the mixture into a well-oiled pie pan and bake at 325 F for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

Create the pie filling by adding the figs, persimmons, pumpkin puree, coconut milk, egg yolks, ginger root, all spice, palm sugar, the remainder of the salt, and the Berry Bliss Superfood Blend, if desired, to a large high speed blender, blend on high until smooth and then transfer mixture into a large mixing bowl. In a small blender, add egg whites, blend on high until frothy, and then fold egg whites into pie filling mixture in large mixing bowl. (If you only have one blender, blend the egg whites first and pour them into a separate bowl before blending other ingredients.)

Pour the pie filling into the cooled pie crust and bake at 350 F for about 60 minutes or until the filling sets up to a thick, creamy consistency. Allow the pie to cool before cutting.

We made this pie last night for a gathering this evening. I have a feeling it will be a hit.

Hey Sima Joon!

I don’t think it’s required necessarily. It basically turns into coconut butter once processed so you could use Philosophie coconut butter (or any brand) most likely!

This sounds delicious. Does it require rje shredded coconut?

Something we all need more of in this new world we’re living in!

1 ½ cup rolled oats

¾ cup all-purpose gluten-free baking flour (I like Bob's Red Mill)

1 tsp cornstarch

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

¼ tsp salt

1 tbsp Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend


1 flax egg (1 tbs ground flax + 3 tbs warm water)

¼ cup coconut oil (melted)

¾ cup sugar, agave or Cacao Bee Honey (or a few drops of stevia)

1 tbsp dairy-free milk (try this homemade cashew mylk!)

½ tsp vanilla extract

½ cup raisins

Do This: 

For the flax egg, combine ground flax and warm water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken.

In a medium bowl, add the dry ingredients (rolled oats, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and Cacao Magic) and stir to combine.

In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil and your sweetener of choice.

Add flax egg, dairy-free milk, and vanilla extract and continue to whisk.

Add dry ingredients to wet, and stir until fully combined then gradually fold in your raisins.

Chill dough for (at least) 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 °F and scoop ½ tbsp of dough and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Flatten the cookies as they will not spread much during baking then bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges begin to turn golden brown.

Let cool on pan for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a rack to continue cooling.

Summer Berry Salad with Berry Honey Dressing

Been feeling the urge to fuel my body with more organic fruits and vibrant greens so I’m whipping up a refreshing, summery salad bowl topped with my favorite homemade dressing using Berry Bee Honey + Berry Bliss.

Not enough people are talking about how important it is to support your immunity during these times. I’m giving each of my kiddos a small spoonful of Berry Bee Honey daily to help support their immunity and flood their bodies with vitamin C. We’re adding it to meals as much as we can like in this salad dressing or in our tea, smoothies and desserts. We feel better when we make trips to the store or go to the local park because we know our systems are supported and strong. 

Pair this salad with our grounding beet smoothie or a huge glass of chlorophyll water and you’re ready to go!

Gather This:

1 bag mixed greens

1 cup strawberries (sliced)

1 cup blueberries

½ cup raspberries

1 cup coconut 

1 ½ cups silvered almonds

Handful of edible flowers

Sprinkle of bee pollen


2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp Berry Bee Honey

1 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

Splash apple cider vinegar

Do This:

Chop your lettuce into small bite-sized pieces and add to a large bowl.

Pour berries on top of lettuce in the bowl.

Add your almonds and bee pollen on top of the berries.

Stir everything together.

Make your dressing on the side by adding all ingredients to a small bowl and stirring well. 

Generously pour your dressing over the salad, mix and enjoy!
