Hibiscus Lavender w/ Coconut Lime Swirl Pie

With a weekly farmers market and raw pie orders coming in regularly, my creativity for new flavors is always flowing.  Because raw food ingredients are pricey, I’m constantly looking for what I may have in the pantry to utilize.  My friend Annie had gifted me a bag of culinary lavender from Maui.  Because the lavender flowers are so beautifully purple, I love making the color of the pie equally beautiful.  This week, I came across a bag of hibiscus flowers that my boyfriend’s mother had given me from mainland journey. One thing I love about hibiscus tea is the vibrant burgundy color.  So, I thought that hibiscus and lavender might pair well together. This is the second recipe I’m sharing on my blog, so enjoy.
