History

I just love blueberries. My mother is always making blueberry pie… but I find hers a little too sweet. (Sorry mom!) Why do pies always have to be super sweet? So, I felt like concocting a recipe for a wholesome dessert that you can eat to your heart’s content GUILT FREE. A fresh tasting pie that won’t turn into a mess on your plate. Ta-dah! The Caramel Blue Fairy came and whispered her recipe in my ear. A fruit pie sweetened with caramel date puree… just to make it a touch more decadent.

My hubby LOVES my mom’s blueberry pie, so I’ll be honest: he was a bit reticent at first. He didn’t think my Caramel Blue Fairy could actually be amazing. In the end, he would have eaten the whole pie all by himself. Hahaha!

I’m going to let you in on another little secret: even if you don’t know how to make pies, you can make this pie without a hitch. A close relative of the Fairy-in-the-Fields, it’s super easy to make. What’s more, because it doesn’t contain any refined sugar, you can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Bon appétit!
