I planned a picnic for Labor Day. I wanted to make something that was healthy, quick and required low to no cooking on a hot summer day. I chose one of my huband's favorite dishe (pictured above) Mango Blueberry Quinoa Salad w/ Lemon Basil Dressing. I tweeked it by adding Salmon fillets (not pictured). For dessert I made Blueberry Icebox Pie (pictured below).
This dish called for cream cheese, condensed milk and butter, for the gram cracker crust. I love tweeking new recipes and making them more healthy so my waistline and hips won't have to pay a heafty price for my big appeitite. I made a condensed milk alternative with almond milk and coconut palm sugar. I swaped out the cream cheese with tofu. Instead of a gram cracker crust and butter, I used oat flour, spices and organic vegetable shortening. Needless to say, this Blueberry Icebox Pie will definitely be added to our list of dessert favorites! This Labor Day picnic, on the beach, as the sun set, was a total success! Be on the lookout for our upcoming cooking classes & demos. Blueberry Icebox Pie will be on our A-list of desserts. Hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend.
