Hi, I'm Laura Cipullo. I'm a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Diabetes Educator. I'm with Laura Cipullo Whole Nutrition Services. Today, we're going to make a healthy berry pie. It's actually crustless to make it even healthier. So, what we're going to do is start with dry ingredients. We have three fourth cup of sugar, one cup of whole wheat flour, one fourth teaspoon of nutmeg, one fourth teaspoon of cinnamon, three tablespoons of quick tapioca. For our wet ingredients, we have three tablespoons of canola oil. Canola oil is the oil you prefer to use when you're doing any kind of baking or cooking rather than vegetable oil. The other thing we have here is milk, three tablespoons, preferably low fat or skim and we have two eggs. I prefer to use Eggland's Best eggs. These eggs are higher in omega three fatty acids, higher in Vitamin D and E and also 25 percent lower in saturate fat. So, if you're trying to make a healthy recipe, I do recommend the Eggland's Best. And finally, you can't forget because this is a berry pie, we're using fresh berries; blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. And again, berries aren't always available, so you can either use frozen berries or you can always find Driscoll's berries in your grocery store because they provide berries all throughout the year and they are delicious. The first thing you need is a large mixing bowl. We're going to take the whole wheat flour, again, it's one cup and you're going to add the dry ingredients. So, you have one cup of whole wheat flour, three fourths cup of sugar, we have one fourth teaspoon of cinnamon and then, we're going to add one fourth teaspoon of nutmeg. Mix your dry ingredients; you can also add salt, but you don't have to. Again, we're trying to make this healthy, so there's no need to add salt. Now, we're going to combine the wet ingredients. We're going to use three tablespoons of canola oil, we're going to use three tablespoons of low fat milk, one percent is fine, you can use skim as well. And again, then we're going to take your eggs, the two Eggland's Best eggs and stir that up, give it a little bit of a beat and combine that with your dry ingredients. So, get this nice and moist; this is actually going to be your crust and you stir this until you have a consistency similar to this. Now, this is your crust and you're going to put this in your slow cooker at the end. So, take your two cups of blueberries, your two cups of strawberries, your two cups of blackberries and add them to a saucepan. It can be any variety of berries that you want. You can have raspberries, blues, blueberries, blackberries, anything your prefer. Add one cup of water and then we're going to add three tablespoons of quick tapioca. This is your thickening agent to help the berries form a compote. You're going to heat the water, tapioca and berry compote until you get a boil. And then, it's going to look like this. Now, you're going to take your boiled berry mixture that's full of antioxidants and we're going to pour it into this slow cooker. You're going to cook it for about one and a half to two hours. This maybe a little bit thicker for you and that's just because mine has been boiling for a quite sometime and yours will only be boiling for a short period of time. You fill your crockpot or your slow cooker with the berry compote and then you're going to add your crust that you've already made. And it's best to add it in dollops, so it's almost like a, a cobbler. And you, you don't actually have to do it that way, you can make it a thin crust or in dollops of crust. I prefer the dollops. And then there you go, you have a healthy berry pie that's crustless on the bottom and you have a thin crust on top made of whole wheat flour so it's going to be a high fiber and high antioxidant dish. And this is what the compote and berry pie looks like at the end. I'm Laura Cipullo. Today, we made a healthy berry pie with lots of fresh berries and a crustless bottom in the slower cooker.
