Raw Strawberry Coconut Cream Pie

Summer and strawberries. What a great combination. A friend of mine dropped off a very large box of strawberries the other day and the fun began. I have been having spinach-strawberry balsamic salads, putting strawberries in green drinks and just eating them by the dozens! Noticing that the rest of the strawberries needed to be used now, I decided to put together a recipe for a strawberry cream pie! The crust is a delicious combination of macadamia nuts and almonds with coconut while the filling is a light, healthy combination of cashews, coconut meat plus a few more ingredients. The special surprise is the layer of cacao that lines the crust. This recipe uses an 8″ pie plate.

    I told my husband to please make that for me ASAP! We are both trying to do eat raw together as much as possible, and it’s lovely that we do not have to give up desserts! Plus these look so good!

    I just decided two weeks ago to go raw. My birthday was today and I wanted to make something special. Made this pie and the mushroom burgers. Both turned out yummy. I accidentally put cocoa powder in the crust, too. It tasted good, though. I shared the desert with my husband and six kids and all but one liked it. Thank you for a good birthday experience.

    Catherine, I don’t know if anyone responded to your question, but I noticed it (and apologize for the delay). Young coconuts are different from regular coconuts. In their natural state they are the green coconuts you see in the tropics with people drinking from them. In the store the green husk is removed and it looks like a white (almost conical or torpedo shaped) cube wrapped in plastic. When you crack the top with a cleaver to open, pour out the delicious water inside and use a spoon to scrape out the young coconut flesh.

    Young coconut flesh is tender and can almost be similar to a firm gel. I hope this helps. It cannot be subbed for re-hydrated shredded coconut. I’m new to raw food recipes, but from what I understand (and from experimentation) you can use an equal amount of raw soaked cashews in addition to the cashews called for in the recipe. It will still taste wonderful (richer), but more calories and fat. Young coconut is low in fat and calories. I hope you can find one some day. Try asian markets. Cheers! (from California)

    Wow, that looks delicious. I’m going to make it when I visit my son this weekend. I have one question. The recipe calls for almonds and the recipe itself says to grind brazil nuts. Does it matter which one I use? Thank you so much and love this site!!!!

      It is a typo. I will correct.

    Where I am at in Alaska, I can’t get coconut meat. Can I rehydrate some shredded coconut and call it good?

    No…it is not freshly grated…I just get it at the co-op. They have two different sizes at ours.

    Susan: YOUR flaked coconut looks freshly grated–and thicker than most dried cocount flakes yu get at health food stores. Am I correct and/or can you use something different than the typical dried coconut you get at health food store?
