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?

Green Dream Guacamole Recipe

Alright all you avocado lovers, this one’s for you! It’s super simple to make and only uses a small handful of ingredients. It’s also completely gluten + dairy-free!

So if you’re looking for a dip to pair with veggies and crackers, or want a luscious topper for a burger, I’m pretty confident that this bowl of avocado heaven will hit the spot. The healthy fats are nourishing for our bodies and brains, and the Green Dream blend adds a detoxifying boost of spirulina. I also tried to brighten this dish up by adding some fresh herbs, onions and tomatoes, but if you prefer a more traditional version, you can always leave these ingredients on the side… they make great toppings!

If you should happen to run out of snacks to dip with, I highly recommend grabbing a spoon… this stuff is addicting!!!
 

Gather This:

10 cherry tomatoes
6-7 garlic cloves
3 avocados
1 jalapeno
1 lime, or lemon (juiced)
1 bunch of cilantro
1 tablespoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
½ red onion
salt + pepper to taste

     Do This:

    1. Add the herbs, garlic, jalapeno, and onions to a blender, and pulse for 2-3 minutes until a paste forms.

    2. Then, add the avocados, tomatoes and Green Dream. Pulse until all of the ingredients are incorporated.

    3. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice to taste!  

    4. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy immediately!!!

    Superfood Matcha Freezer Fudge

    Who's says you can't make clean & healthy sweets? We're here to show you otherwise! To make this mint and matcha fudge, you’ll need tahini, coconut cacao butter, pure maple syrup or Berry Bee or Green Bee Honey, matcha powder, and a few drops of pure peppermint oil (or extract if you don’t have oil). You’ll add them all to a double boiler and whisk together over medium-low heat until you have a smooth, creamy mixture. Then, you’ll pour it into a small, 3×5-inch pan or container (I use a glass tupperware container) and refrigerate until firm.
    .
    If you want to put any toppings on your fudge, wait about 20 minutes, and then add the toppings on the fudge. Bee pollen, coconut shreds and cacao nibs would all taste wonderful with this. Once it’s set, flip the container over, give it a forceful tap to release, and slice into bite-sized pieces of fudge.

    This fudge is perfectly smooth, creamy, rich, and superfood-kissed. It also offers an amazing cooling effect thanks to the peppermint! 
    Gather This: 
    1/2 cup Shirely Bar's Ethiopian Tahini
    1/4 cup cacao butter 
    1/4 cup coconut butter
    2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or Green Bee or Berry Bee Honey 
    1/2 tablespoon matcha powder
    1/2 tablespoon Green Dream Superfood Blend
    5-7 drops pure peppermint oil or peppermint extract to taste (optional)

      Do This:

      In a double boiler, combine all ingredients over medium-low heat. Whisk together for 3-5 minutes or until smooth. If you don't have a double boiler, simply put water in a larger pot and the ingredients in a smaller pot on top. Be careful not to put too much water in the lower/larger pot so that it doesn't boil into the top/smaller pot. You should only need about 1/2 up of water. 

      Grease a small 5x3-inch pan or plastic/glass container with coconut oil and pour the mixture into it. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm and completely set.

      Once set, turn container over and tap to release the fudge. Slice. Store in refrigerator or freezer.

      Chocolate & Peanut Butter Superfood Freezer Fudge

      We’re all about simplicity here at Philosophie and these superfood freezer fudge bars are perfecto! We’re sharing all you need to make these superfood chocolate & peanut butter fudge bars that are rich, chewy, melt in your mouth, and are made from a mix of raw cacao, plant protein, ashwagandha, and maca. 


      Maca and ashwagandha are so easy & good to add into smoothies, teas, and sometimes into bars such as these. Ashwagandha, raw cacao, and maca are all known for helping alleviate stress, anxiety, and supporting mood, energy, and memory. Maca also doubles as being a root tremendous in balancing hormones that also brings in the most delicious nutty flavor. These bars blend them all up, come out beyond fudgey, and are delish to enjoy on their own or best in my opinion, broken up on top of a smoothie bowl.


      These bars are made with our mood-boosting and hormone-balancing Cacao Magic Superfood Blend and superfood collagen blend, Cosmic Elixir. Our Cacao Magic is extremely high in antioxidants and magnesium, with no added sugar.


      Thanks to our Philosophie Babe Alexis Lahner (@lexlahnhealth) for creating this yummy, superfood-rich treat!

      ¼ cup unsweetened coconut shreds
