Fresh Fruit and Nut Pie

This recipe has loads of vitamin C, B-complex bioflavins, folic acid, copper, manganese and phosphorus. Also heaped with potassium but the down and low is that it is just plain delicious!!

Crust
1 cup almonds
1 cup hazelnuts or walnuts
1/3 cup raisins
ΒΌ cup of apple juice


Filling

2 bananas
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 kiwis
1 quart fresh strawberries

Blend raisins and nuts in food processor or blender until well chopped but not too fine. (Should resemble pebbles). Add apple juice and blend or pulse for a few more seconds. Pour mixture into glass pie plate and press to shape the crust.

Slice bananas and spread in bottom of crust, pressing slightly. Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent bananas from turning brown. Slice kiwis and add atop bananas, pressing slightly. Slice strawberries and add atop kiwis, pressing down slightly.

Chill for 1 hour. Carefully slice and serve. You can add other fruit such as blackberries, fresh peaches, pears, blueberries.

Got to mention (from experience) that it is amazing with low fat whipped cream or even a dollup of vanilla yogurt on the side.
