Thank you so much for visiting Fork and Beans to check out this super decadent, incredibly rich Raw Lime Coconut Pie. We are so pleased that you are here! We hope that you not only make this pie for dessert for all your loved ones and friends, but that you also enjoy every bite. Unfortunately Cara is not in right now. Her mom is in town and while the two of them are gallivanting around Los Angeles, eating their way through the city and also shopping until they are dropping, Cara did want to thank all of you from the bottom of her heart for being some of the greatest salt on this earth. She says that it’s all because of YOU that her recent cookbook release has been a success. She was not expecting any of it and has been completely blown away by your responses to her. If you want, leave a comment with your name, email, and website (optional). Cara would love to hear from you! She is probably eating a slice of this pie as we speak (or as I write and you read) and she would probably want me to tell you that you should give this a try too. Creamy, coconutty, and citrusy. The three C’s are present in this pie.
- ½ c. raw cashews, soaked for 4+ hours, drained
- 7 oz. coconut cream (1/2 a can)
- ¼ c. nondairy milk
- ¼ c. lime juice
- ½ c. unsweetened shredded coconut
- 3 Tbsp. raw agave or maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- zest of 1 lime
- 1½ c. raw almonds
- 6 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- pinch of sea salt
- Shredded coconut
- In a food processor, break up the almonds until it is a rough crumb/flour-like.
- Pour into a medium bowl and add the oil and salt until well-combined.
- Pour onto a pie tin and form into a crust by patting down with your hands.
- Freeze while you are working on the filling.
- For the filling, place all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender with an S blade until completely smooth and thick. Adjust flavor for sweetness to preference. Pour on top of crust, coat with shredded coconut and chill in the fridge for several hours or in the freezer for 1 hour.
Please leave your comment after the beep. Beep. P.S. This is really Cara.
