How To Prepare The Crust

    Step 1 Blend first 5 ingredients in a food processor.

    Step 3 Line pie pan with saran wrap and press crust on top.

    Step 4 Place in freezer while making the filling.

For the Filling:

 

2 Cup Young Coconut Meat

½ Cup Virgin Coconut Oil

2 to 4 TB Agave Nectar (to taste)

Coconut Water (if needed)

1 TB Lime Juice

¼ tsp Salt

½ tsp Vanilla Extract (or seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean)

1 to 2 bananas, sliced in 1/2″ slices

How To Prepare The Filling

    Step 1 Blend the rest of the ingredients, except banana slices, in a blender until smooth.

    Step 1 Make sure there is enough liquid to have the ingredients swirling in a vortex.

    Step 1 Add coconut water, if needed.

    Step 1 Take crust out from freezer and place sliced bananas on top of crust.

    Step 1 Pour filling on top of bananas.

    Step 1 Place in freezer for 3-4 hours to set.

Topping

Vanessa adds a coconut cream topping by running the meat of a mature coconut through a heavy juicer. The “juice” will have the consistency similar to whipped cream. Spread cream on top of pie filling before placing pie in the freezer.

    What type of “heavy juicer” is being used?

  • http://www.someliketiraw.net Vanessa Sherwood

    A Greenstar juicer….

    Which green star filter do you use to juice the ripe coconut. Fine mesh, medium mesh, or homogenizing blank? Also, with the ripe coconut do you have to take off the brown before you juice the pulp?

    Hi

    How many coconuts did you use? I noticed the topping looks very dense, what type of juicer could a person substitute if we don't have a greenstar juicer? I can't wait to try this recipe!!

    Linda-

    Coconuts vary in how much 'meat' they have in them, but you'll probably need around 6 to get 2 cups of coconut meat. That's just a guess though. The topping is very dense because it is juiced mature coconut which has a completely different texture. Once the juice is chilled, it sort of resembles a dense whippped cream. You can try any juicer, but it's at your own risk! It may or may not work, I haven't tried with anything other than a Greenstar because that is what I have. You could also eliminate this topping and the cake will be just as awesome!

    I was able to use my champion juicer( the instructions are on the web site) to make the coconut cream.

    loved the “off-setting” idea hahaha.. anyway just here to inform you that by placing your off-settings in a compost bin along with shreaded bark, News paper, live bacteria etc for up to 6 months (time to ferment..I know it may sound gross), to then use it as manure (food for your plants)…the fruit for which the plants provide you with will actually contain all the vitamins minerals you name it, for which you are in need of
