This luscious berry pie is easy to make and packed with fiber, antioxidants and protein. Chia seeds absorb up to 10 times their weight in liquid, making thickening a breeze and dairy free pudding an easy summer treat.
To make the crust, in a food processor, combine dates, almonds and flaxseed meal, and process until the mixture is finely ground and begins to clump together, 1 to 2 minutes; stop several times to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Scrape the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate and press down with your fingers or the bottom of a glass to evenly cover the bottom and sides of the plate. Set aside.
Wipe out the food processor and add half of the berries, chia seeds, grape juice, honey and vanilla. Process until fairly smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in remaining berries. Pour into the pie plate, cover and refrigerate until chilled and chia seeds have thickened the filling, at least 4 hours.
