This PIE. This fluffy cream pie! I am in LOVE with this lemon pie. Out of the dozens of healthy desserts I’ve made in the past two years, this is easily one of my absolute FAVs. I can’t wait to share the recipe. It’s so simple and quick!
Lately, I have been all about EASY. When I don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen, but I still need a yummy treat, this is the answer.
Just 6 simple ingredients and 6 minutes to make it! No baking, no food processor, nothing fancy. The best part? You don’t have to put it in the fridge or freezer for HOURS to let it set (like most raw vegan desserts). Enjoy it right away!
The caveat — you need coconut cream from a can of coconut milk that has been chilled overnight (but sometimes a few hours is all you need… Actually my house is cold enough that the cream is usually already separated, but I always try to keep a can (or two!) of coconut milk in my fridge at all times so I’m prepared for when the craving strikes 😉 )
A delicious lemon cream pie made entirely from healthy whole foods? Yep!! It sounds too good to be true, right? And only 3 Tbs of sweetener in the entire recipe! That’s all it needs. (Another reason I love coconut! It’s already mildly sweet on its own.)
It’s mostly made of variations of coconut with some maple & lemon. Yum! (ps does anyone else buy coconut oil in these HUGE containers? lol I use a LOT of coconut oil. Love it! Delish and it’s super healthy.)
I made a quick VIDEO of me making this recipe to show you how ridiculously easy and quick it is. Watch it over on my Facebook page, Pretty Pies! 🙂
This pie has a soft, cake-like crumb crust and fresh lemony cream piled on top. I can’t get enough. (I may have a whipped cream addiction.) The fluffy cream is light as a feather, melt in your mouth. Perfect for an after-dinner treat.
These mini tart pans I used make the perfect size pie for sharing, but you may want to keep the whole pie for yourself. No judgement here. I could totally polish off the entire recipe.
But in case you want to share, it’s something almost everyone can enjoy! No gluten, dairy, grains, eggs or refined sugar. It’s vegan, Paleo and nut free, so it’s allergy friendly. If you make this recipe, I’d love to hear what you think!
