Raw Coconut Cream Pie

With a Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day color twist!

Two summers ago, I visited a 100% raw restaurant, Quintessence, in New York City. Ever since that visit, I’ve been dreaming of their raw coconut cream pie.

Sadly, I do not live anywhere near Quintessence, and therefore don’t have easy access to the pie. However, I do have two hands, a powerful blender, and a local Asian grocery store that put Thai coconuts on sale for $1 last week. Translation: time to make some coconut cream pie!

Raw Coconut Cream Pie

  • 1/2 cup Thai coconut meat (about 110g)
  • 1 1/2 cups raw zucchini (250g) (For a pie with a more traditional “coconut cream pie” taste, or if you don’t want the green color, omit the zucchini and add that much more coconut meat.)
  • scant 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • sweetener of choice
  • Optional: for a richer pie, you can add some coconut oil
  • Add 4tbsp cocoa powder for chocolate cream pie.

Add all the ingredients together and blend very well. If you’re using a Magic Bullet, you might want to blend the zucchini by itself first so it doesn’t stay chunky. Taste and add more sweetener if desired. Transfer your mixture to a pie-crust (or pie pan for a crustless pie) and freeze. If you freeze it more than a few hours, thaw before eating.

Raw Grasshopper Pie: Add a few drops pure peppermint extract, as well as some cacao nibs (or chocolate chips) to the filling.

    Hi Katie, this looks delicious! I bought a young Thai coconut and scooped out all the meat from that, but I’ve been since reading about how mature coconuts are usually the ones people use for their meat. Do you know if it matters which I use? Which did you use?

    Hi Katie,

    I am a thirteen year old vegan obsessed with your website! And I love all of your recipes! This one was a little weird though, The constituency was frozen solid when I put it in the freezer… And when I tried to thaw it, it would just turn into goop. Probably something I did, but just wanted to let you know 🙂
