Lemon Pie!
Posted by: mmmveg ()
Date: May 18, 2009 03:17AM

i made a lemon pie today! this is the best! the meringue is made mostly of coconut and the lemon filling is over a cup of lemon juice, irish moss, a bit of agave, coconut oil, turmeric for color and some stevia. i was a bit worried how it would set up since it was a bit runny before i put it in the freezer. but just after 10 minutes it was already firming up! irish moss is magic! you can't taste a bit of it either. it's a super essential ingredient in these kind of pies.
the crust is macademias, cashews, shredded coconut and dates.
i wish i could share!
take care yawning smiley)

why not-
You'll need to rinse and soak the irish moss overnight as well as premake the meringue before making the pie.

Crust:
1.5 cups macadamias
3/4 c. cashews
3/4 c. coconut flakes
2 oz. date paste
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt

Process all ingredients and press into pie dish

Lemon Filling:
2 oz irish moss(soaked)
1 c + 2 tbs lemon juice
6 tbs. water
Blend until smooth then add:
3/4 c. agave and 1/8 tsp. turmeric

Blend again until smooth then add:
2 tsp. lecithin and 6 tbs. coconut oil.
Blend until well mixed.

Coconut Meringue:

3/4 oz. irish moss
1/4 c. water
2/3 c. coconut milk
Blend until moss is completely broken down the add to blender:
1 c. coconut milk
1/4 c. coconut meat
1/2 c. soaked cashews
5 tbs agave
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp. salt
Blend until smooth and creamy then add:
1 tbs. lecithin & 1/2 c. + 1 tbs. coconut oil.

Resume blending until all incorporated. Pout into container and set until firm (overnight for best texture)

FYI: I cut down on the agave and add stevia. I'm not sure the exact amounts (to taste)

Please post your pic when you're done!

Irish Moss is carrageenan (could be too many es or rs not certain of spelling) Thickening ingredient in many regular food products. Comes from health food stores.

Looks wonderful! Might be just the thing to make for my family next time we're all together for dinner.
Is it young coconut meat or the mature kind that you're using? I'm assuming young since the hard stuff doesn't blend up very smooth but maybe I'm wrong...

hey mmveg

i feel silly

but i was a little confused ( as well as SUPER amaaaaazed!!)

okay... so first of all, the "meringue" is the TOP frosty coating? is that right?

and then.. the second question is this:

so.. you are saying that the beautiful lemony filling is just the irish moss and lemon juice? WHOAAHH? really? that's incredible..

seems to defy logic

gorgeous

am i right though?

the filling will just hold like that from irish moss and lemon juice?

wow

geniuzz!

wow, looks so delicious, I didnt notice the recipe on here last time I posted,lol... but wow, up here that would cost like $30-$40 to make, but looks so delicious... maybe I'll splurge and make it if I end up going to visit my friend Angels Family again... they are all still raw, and im sure would LOVE this recipe, as I do happen to know her mom has a weakness for lemon meringue pie...

This looks delish but I cannot eat so much coconut oil. I have GERD and coconut oil really gets it going.

Kind of annoying when trying to eat raw ice cream, which I will NOT give up.

I make banana ice cream in a masticating juicer for my kids, it doesn't have anything in it but banana. You can make a 'chocolate' sauce with blended soaked dates and cocoa powder to drizzle over it.

I mixed chocholate chips with frozen bananas today too, that was awesome...although not completely raw... my favorite "ice cream" ive made swo far with that juicer is the canteloupe strawberry...that was awesome...

I bought a whole bag of keylimes the other day to make a key lime pie using this recipe but... now that I really look at it many things aren't clear...

2 oz of date paste - purchased or made by me, and if made by me is it just dates processed in the food processor until pasty?

Is it 2 oz of dried irish moss soaked, or 2 oz of soaked irish moss? That measurement would make a big difference I think.

What kind of coconut milk? Surely not the tinned sort. How do you make coconut milk, by blending raw coconut meat with water or something? How much coconut to how much water I wonder?

Coconut meat, from a young coconut or a mature coconut?

I'll have to figure out what 2 oz means in tablespoons and teaspoons and cups...

I might juice and freeze these keylimes until I figure this one out. Then I'll show you pictures, if I can manage to take some before we eat it all grinning smiley.
