Raw Hemp Peach Pie

Mmmmm, hemp. Why am I mildly obsessed with this superfood? Firstly, hemp is one of the only foods on this planet that will provide you with complete protein, carbohydrates, AND omega-3, 6, and 9 fatty acids all by itself.  Hemp also packs a punch of fiber, B-vitamins, and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, and zinc- just to list a few of its impressive stats. For this lover of all things nutrient dense,  hemp is a dream food.

This little love affair with hemp is how I came up with my recipe for Hemp Peach Pie. I needed to find a way to use up the accumulating summer fruit sitting on my counter and was craving dessert. I wanted it to be delicious enough to enjoy as a dessert but healthy enough that I could also eat it for breakfast the next day. I also needed it to be totally raw, free of processed sugars, gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. Simple, right? What I came up with was a super quick and easy recipe that seems to be impossible to flub up.

This recipe is so quick, easy, and delicious that it has become a regular thing coming out of my kitchen this month. While I haven’t made this pie the same way twice, it always seems to turn out and disappear fast. It is easily adaptable to different kinds of fruit and spices.

Dessert just got upgraded to being healthfully hempy.
