National Pi Day is upon us and it only makes sense to celebrate the mathematical constant with a warm and cozy slice of our favorite fruit-filled crusts of joy, otherwise known as pie! But you don’t have to be a mathematician to recreate this flavorful spin off of the classic strawberry rhubarb pie.

Although its season is fleeting, you can be sure spring has sprung when you start seeing Rhubarb! Raw rhubarb is as mouth-puckering as lemons and is almost always paired with a sweet counterpart like strawberries to offset the tang. In this pie, rhubarb and strawberries are joined by apples and several other berry sidekicks, creating a blissful mingling of vibrant fruity flavors, deepened by a dose of Teeccino Cordyceps Schisandra Cinnamon Berry herbal coffee, dates, almonds, and coconut in the crust. A crunchy crumble topping adds a nice contrast and a scoop of vanilla ice cream will take your slice over the top!
