No-Bake Strawberry Pie

Low-sugar, no-bake strawberry pie is also heart-healthy with antioxidant-rich strawberries and topped with

refreshing mint leaves.  The gluten-free pie crust consists of chopped almonds and Medjool dates.

Strawberries benefit the heart in many ways, including increasing HDL (good) cholesterol and lowering blood pressure. Strawberries are rich in antioxidants which help protect the heart and are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food. The no-bake strawberry pie is also great during the hot summer months when wanting to keep the house cool.

1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and chilled

¼ cup olive oil or grape seed oil

½ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
