Lemon Cream Pie … oh my!



RAW PIE CRUSTIngredients:

(makes enough crust for 1 x 9″ pie crust)

– 3/4 cups pitted Sayer dates

– dash coarse sea salt

– 2 cups (reduced fat) shredded coconut

– 1 tbsp. evoo

– 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

– 1 tbsp chia seeds

– 1 tbsp maple syrup (or use agave nectar, to make raw)


Combine all ingredients in food processor until crumbly. Pour crumbly mixture into pie pan and press into bottom and sides evenly with your hands or the back of spoon. Store in freezer for 15 minutes before filling.



Raw lemon curdRaw Lemon Curd

(Makes STEP 1 of Raw Lemon Cream Pie)

Part I ingredients:

– 2/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

– 2 tbsp chia seeds

– 1 tbsp ground flax

– 2 cups boiling water

Combine water, flax and chia in a bowl. Let gel for about 20 minutes.

Juice lemons in the meantime (3 and 1/2 lemons make about 2/3 cup of juice). Grab your food processor, add the lemon juice.

Part II ingredients:

– 2 tbsp raw honey (or use agave nectar to make raw or maple to make it vegan)

3 tbsp maple syrup (or use agave nectar to make raw)

– dash coarse sea salt

– 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

– 1 tbsp of fresh lemon zest

Add Part II ingredients to the juice in the blender and blend on high to combine until frothy.

Part III ingredients:

– flax-chia goop

– food processor mixture

Add the goop into the food processor and blend on high for a few minutes. The mixture should now be slightly thickened and opaque. Strain it into a bowl. Discard the flax and chia goopiness your strainer catches. Cover the strained mixture with tinfoil and refrigerate a few hours or overnight (I did overnight).


COCONUT WHIPPEDRaw Lemon Cream Pie Filling

(coconut whipped cream added to creamy lemon filling)

Makes STEP 2 of Raw Lemon Cream Pie

Part I ingredients:

– prepared lemon goop from Part 1

– 1/2 of the thick cream skimmed off the top of a 400 ml can organic coconut milk, chilled (in fridge) at least 24 hours to separate (I use Thai Kitcen’s Organic Full Fat, do NOT use reduced fat coconut milk)

– 1/5 tbsp maple syrup (or use agave nectar to make raw)

– pinch coarse sea salt

– 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

– i tsp evoo

Chill a metal mixing bowl in the freezer for five minutes. Open the chilled can of coconut milk and scoop out the cream from the top, leaving the liquid in the can. Add the cream to the chilled bowl. Add the other ingredients and beat on high with an electric mixer until mixture resembles whipped cream. Transfer half the mixture to another bowl. Add the lemon good to the original bowl and beat together on high speed. Gently blend in the remaining cream to the mixture 1 tbsp at a time.

Part II ingredients:

– 2 tbsp chia seeds

Add the chia seeds and beat until the mixture is creamy and foamy. Put the bowl in thee freezer.

Part III ingredients:

– 4-5 tbsp liquid Creamed Coconut (I use Let’s Do Organic Creamed Coconut)

– 1 squeeze lemon juice

– 1 tsp maple syrup (or sub agave nectar to make raw)

Place the sealed package of creamed coconut in a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes until the mixture liquefies. Open the package and pour 4 or 5 tbsp of the creamed coconut into the bowl of frothy lemon mixture from freezer. Add the lemon juice and maple and beat the mixture on high speed until with and creamy (not super thick). Taste! Add extra maple if not sweet enough or more lemon juice if not lemony enough.

Pour mixture into your frozen pie crust and place the pie in a level spot in your freezer to set (should take an hour or two).

Top the now chilled pie with fresh coconut whipped cream and extra lemon zest and serve.Get the Coconut Whipped Cream recipe here.
