06 Jan Coconut Cream Lime Pie with Hemp Seed Crust
If you’re a fan of pie, you’re about to be truly excited. This coconut cream lime pie with hemp seed crust will most likely end up among your favorite pies. This recipe is both health and nutritious. It’s completely vegan and features only whole food ingredients.
Because it’s made of hemp seeds, the pie crust itself will provide you with protein, fiber and the healthy essential fats, omega-3 and omega-6. While they pack a nutritious punch, they don’t have any THC, which is the mind-altering ingredient found in its marijuana family member.
This particular recipe is for one small (4-inch) pie, which is an ideal size for sharing between two people. Making the pie is easy and takes just a few minutes, but it’s recommended to set for a couple days in the fridge before serving. Plan ahead if you’re making the pie for an event.
¾ cup hemp seeds
¾ cup dates
Add the hemp seeds into a food processor and blend until they have a powdery consistency. Add in the dates and process until the mixture is thoroughly blended together. Press the mixture into and around the edges of a 4-inch pie dish.
Coconut cream lime pie filling:
½ of a coconut’s meat
¼ cup coconut water
1-2 tablespoons coconut nectar
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 lime, peeled
½ teaspoon ginger powder
½ teaspoon vanilla powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
Add all the ingredients into the food processor and blend until the consistency is smooth. If you find that the mixture is too thick, add a little more coconut water.
Once you’re finished blending, pour the mixture into the crust and then place the pie in the fridge for about 48 hours to harden.
