No Bake Coconut Pie

I think you all will know by now that since giving up dairy I have been in love with everything coconut, and this one is delicious. My father In law, in the past few years hasn't eaten any desert but I managed to twist his arm and he tried some of this pie and of course went back for seconds. its east as its no bake and would take no longer than 10 minutes to prepare then in the refrigerator to set.

  • 6 Dates
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 Cup Almonds
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Water

  • 1/2 Cup Cashews
  • 1/2 Cup Dates
  • 1 vanilla Bean or 2 tsp. extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 2 Cups desiccated Coconut
  • 3 Tbsp. Raw Honey
  • 3 Tbsp. Water
  • Juice of 1 lemon

What To Do:
  • For the base combine all ingredients in a blender on high speed until well chopped and holding together. Add another tbsp. of water if its not coming together. Press base in to a lined spring form pan with an approximate diameter of 20cm.

  • For the filling place a whole vanilla bean in a high powered blender until finely chopped. Alternatively scape vanilla pod and add to other ingredients. Add remaining ingredients and blend until all finely chopped and well combined. Ensure that all nuts are chopped finely. Press firmly on top of base and sprinkle with coconut. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. This will keep in the refrigerator for at least a week and in the freezer for at least a month.
