I made this pie to bring to a paleo potluck over the weekend, and it was a big hit. I got the recipe from Kelly over at Primally Inspired. It’s easy to make, requires no baking (it’s raw!), is refined sugar free, and filled with healthy fats. No unpleasant blood sugar crash afterwards– this is a healthy dessert! I even ate it for breakfast the next morning, and why not? The filling is light and airy and contains avocados and whipped coconut cream for healthy fats. The crust is made with almonds, coconut butter, dates and shredded coconut, so you get some protein, fiber, and even more healthy fats.
This would be a great dessert to bring to a dinner party, or just to make as a healthy alternative if you want a dessert that isn’t filled with junk. You could even top it with a little additional whipped coconut cream, which is very easy to make.
