Creative Cooking | Mixed Fruit Pie

So again, another yummy creation from what I found in my freezer. This time it was a bag of cut up fruit, from when I was going through my juicing phase. Not that I don't like juice anymore, it's just too cold to make frozen juice drinks at the moment. So pie it was. I didn't really follwo any paticular method, really it was just a sandwich bag of mixed fruit, 4 more apples and 2 handfuls of frozen berries. I will try to write up a rough ingredients and method, but really it was just off the top of my head and all guess work.

Okay so the crust is a little brown, but the taste is amazing!
