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.Print
Raw Lime Coconut Pie
- Yield: 8 1x
For the pie:
- 1/2 c. raw cashews, soaked for 4+ hours, drained
- 7 oz. coconut cream (1/2 a can)
- 1/4 c. nondairy milk
- 1/4 c. lime juice
- 1/2 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
- 3 Tbsp. raw agave or maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- zest of 1 lime
For the crust:
- 1 1/2 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.
I’ve made the cake and I can tell you – this is a little bit of heaven! 🙂
Quick question, what did you do with the cashews?
Oops, it appears as if some of the recipe didn’t transfer over with the new recipe card format. Sorry about that, I fixed it! xo
I LOVE the look of this pie – cannot wait to try. And I love what you do on your blog here. A true pioneer for baby bloggers like me. Thank you thank you.
Haha, at first I thought you asked someone to write that post for you. Funny way to write this post Cara, you fooled me! :-p
This raw cake looks amazeballs! It’s so summerish and decadent! Yum yum!
Cara, What do you think about this product: http://www.amazon.com/Lets-Do-Organic-Creamed-Coconut/dp/B00113ZZ5U/ref=sr_1_1?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1407429942&sr=1-1&keywords=coconut+cream
Have you tried it? I don’t think I can get unsweetened coconut cream in my town, but I have this on hand and wonder if it might work…
On second thought, I could send you a packet to try! 😀
Congratulations on releasing your cookbook! So exciting!
Looks and sounds fabulous! Can’t wait to try it! 🙂
Haha! Too funny! Coconut pie is my very favorite and yours looks exceptional, Cara. Have a ton of fun with your mom, dear! And so very, very happy that your cookbook is doing so exceptionally well!

YUM. This pie sounds so, so good! Love the photos. And I am so excited about your book… I just got an email from amazon that my pre-order shipped, and should be here any day, now. I can’t wait!
I haven’t been able to find cans of coconut cream (other than those that also contain the milk) – what brand do you use, and where can I get it?
