View Full Version : Recipe for lemon pie?
I'm looking for a recipe for lemon pie, preferably an easy one with simple/few ingredients. I don't own a dehydrator. I'm thinking of a tasty crust with a kind of lemon cream or something on top. Does anyone have ideas how I could make such a thing? :confused: I'm craving one... Hmmhmmm... :rolleyes: Thanks!
Oh, something that looks a little bit like this:

Here's a recipe of mine:
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup shredded coconut
1 t. lemon zest
2-4 T. agave
Process the macadamia nuts, shredded coconut and lemon zest in a food processor until fine. Add the agave one tablespoon at a time until the mixture starts to stick together.
If you have a tart pan, line it with saran wrap and then press the mixture into the tart pan and up along the sides. Or, you can use a pie plate or whatever it is that you want. Put the tart pan or pie plate in the freezer while you make the filling so the crust will firm up.
1 cup young coconut meat
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 T. agave (you can add a little more if you want it sweeter)
1 t. lemon zest
1/2 t. turmeric- optional (for that lemony yellow color only)
1 T. cocnut oil
In a Vita Mix or high speed blender, blend all of the filling ingredients until smooth. Pour the filling into the tart or pie pan. Chill in the fridge until set, 3-6 hours.
Hope you like it!

Is there something that one can substitute for young coconut meat? I am assuming it is used to yield a super-smooth and white base base. I see that a lot of people can't get it.

Thanks for Sharing............

I also can't get young coconuts so am also interested in what can be substituted in this recipe.

Well, it won't be yellow, but you can use avocado.

Yeah definitely avocado, though as JustMe stated, it won't be yellow.
Also, when I used to make chocolate pudding, cashews were my base before learning of using avocado. So, that's also an option if you don't mind using them...or maybe part cashew, part avocado or how about even trying to soak shredded coconut and blend that until creamy as was mentioned in another thread (forgot which one...I think it was the "Food Pics" thread) instead of young coconuts.

If you can't use/find young coconut, this is what I would do:
1 part lemon
1 part cashews
1 part coconut oil (a mild flavored one if possible- some brands are better than others I find :) )
1 part sweetener (honey or agave)
a pinch or two of salt
I would do either 1/2 cup of everything, or 1 cup of everything- depending on how much you want to make.
Blend everything until smooth. If you have a Vita Mix, you don't even need to soak the cashews. Pour on top of a crust of your choice and freeze or chill in fridge. This is almost like a lemon cheesecake. Use mini cheese cake pans, press the crust on the bottom, pour the filling on, freeze and enjoy until your hearts content!!
For those of you on Greenchefs- glad you're liking it:) If you ever have any suggestions or recipes that you would like to see, let me know or post something on the forum at Greenchefs.

Thank you for posting this recipe, it sounds delish! In the part where you provide a substitute for coconut meat, what is the one part lemon - is that the actual fruit, or just lemon juice?

are the cashews soaked for awhile?
