Raw Coconut Cream Pie!

Raw Coconut Cream Pie

Keeping things short and sweet my friends : this Raw Coconut Cream Pie rules.

It’s obviously something special because I never post twice in the same day! But since today is #rawwednesday on twitter, I thought I share this for any of my tweet-pals who wanted to give it a go. There’s no soaking required, and it takes all of 5 or maybe 7 minutes!

I feel like some kind of raw foodist super-hero chica extraordinaire (which I am *so* not!) because it’s really that good. I obviously can’t take credit for fruits and nuts being so delicious, but I can be thankful I took a risk and tried to create something I was craving! So easy, so quick, you’ve no excuses not to make one yourself!

Raw Coconut Cream Pie

  • 3 small or 2 large Very Ripe Bananas
  • 1.5 cups coconut, shredded
  • pinch Celtic Sea Salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoons each of nutmeg and cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped.

Toss everything into your food processor and blend to desired consistency, stopping to scrape down the sides. Place in a bowl and let chill in freezer while you make the crust…

Raw Coconut Cream Pie Crust

  • 1/2 cup almonds (unsoaked)
  • 1/2 cup to 1 cup walnuts (unsoaked)
  • 3 or 4 of your favourite dates (soaked in water for about 30 mins if they aren’t moisty-sticky
  • pinch Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/4 (or more) cinnamon
  • perhaps a bit of water

Toss everything into the food processor (no, you don’t need to wash or rinse it, save the water, kids!), adding a little water if you need to. If you feel it needs a little more walnut goodness than add in another 1/2 cup. Pat pie crust into a 17cm/7in custard dish (or even on a plate, whatever’s clever!) and top with chilled Coconut Cream Filling. It’ll taste better if you let the whole thing chill for a little while, but it’s ok if you can’t wait – I couldn’t.

Makes aprox. 4 servings

  1. Shellyfish, you are my superhero!!! This sounds great. I’m gonna remember this for next raw day. Or maybe my next raw potluck since I can eat a whole pie…maybe I could halve it and make a mini-pie all for me.

  2. I’m so glad I put my food processor on the moving truck! But it’s not here, yet and I want this pie now. Oh well, just remembered I’m not at my “real house” so I don’t have the other stuff either. I’m making a shopping list.

  3. oooh… oohh… ooh… looks so good!!!

    too bad mr. guava doesn’t like coconut or banana… hmm… think I could finish that by myself???

  4. You *are* a super-hero chica extraordinaire, raw foodist or not! It’s great that you took the risk and created this fabulous-looking pie. I can’t wait to give it a try!
