Blueberry Cream Pie


Crust recipe:

2 1/2 cups almond flour

1/4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

To assemble Crust:

Set oven to 350°F

Blend almond flour and salt in a bowl. Add coconut oil and maple syrup, stirring until dough is formed. Using parchment paper to prevent sticking, gently press dough into the bottom and sides of a pie plate. Place parchment paper over crust and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake for 15 minutes.

Blueberry Filling

3 cups blueberries

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 teaspoons arrowroot powder

For blueberry filling:

Rinse berries and place in a saucepan. Turn on heat to low, and add lemon juice and maple syrup. Begin to stir. After 4-5 minutes when blueberries begin to soften, slowly add arrowroot powder. Stir until sauce like texture begins to form. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Whipped Cream topping:

2 cups coconut cream, refrigerated overnight (I use Natural Value)

2 tablespoons of maple syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

After the coconut cream has set in the fridge overnight, the coconut fat solids separate from the coconut water. Beat the solid coconut cream on high speed until peaks form. Slowly stir in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.   Refrigerate until use.

To assemble pie:

When crust and filling have completely cooled, add filling to cooled crust. Top with coconut whipped cream and enjoy!
