Celebrating the Past and Present with Creamy Fig Pie Delight Recipe

creamy fig pie

Greetings, fellow food enthusiasts who share my passion for wholesome and nourishing eats! Today, I'm taking a pleasant trip down memory lane and revisit a recipe that has a special place in my heart. Back in 2013, during my raw food journey, I introduced this Creamy Fig Pie on my beloved Raw-Riffic Food blog. As I dust off this gem from the archives, I couldn't think of a more fitting time to share it with all of you, especially since we're diving deep into the world of healthy figs this week.

History of Figs:

Figs, those timeless fruits, have woven their way through history, leaving a sweet trail from the Neolithic Era to modern times. These delicate fruits have been cherished for their unique taste and incredible versatility. In fact, they've even earned a special mention in the pages of the Bible, emphasizing their enduring significance. As we prepare to indulge in a slice of Creamy Fig Pie, we're not just enjoying a dessert – we're savoring a piece of the past.

Healthful Benefits:

While figs have certainly charmed us with their rich history, their nutritional benefits are just as captivating. Packed with fiber, antioxidants, and essential minerals like calcium and potassium, figs stand as champions of digestive health, promoting a healthy colon and balanced cholesterol levels. As if that weren't enough, they come bearing the gift of being naturally fat-free, sodium-free, and cholesterol-free – a testament to the power of whole, unadulterated foods.

Creamy Fig Pie: A Journey Through Taste and Time:

Positioned within my Raw-Riffic Food blog's recipe collection, the Creamy Fig Pie recipe has truly stood the test of time. The crust is a blend of jungle peanuts, Brazil nuts, dates, and a touch of raw cacao, creating a perfect base for the creamy fig filling. Speaking of the filling, it's a balanced combination of soaked raw cashews, Medjool dates, vanilla extract, raw mesquite powder, lucuma powder, and a hint of SweetLeaf stevia, resulting in great flavors and textures that's truly satisfying. Now for this amazing recipe!
