No-Bake Strawberry Coconut Cream Pie, Vegan + Gluten-Free
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: dessert
Cuisine: vegan, gluten-free
Serves: 8
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 8 dates, soaked in water 30 minutes
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 cans full-fat coconut milk (see preparation instructions)
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in water 2 hours
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • dash of salt
  • 10 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • coconut butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
  1. Refrigerate the cans of coconut milk overnight. This causes the cream to separate from the liquid.
  2. To prepare the crust, pulse the oats in a blender or food processor until flour is made. Add dates, shredded coconut and coconut oil and blend until mostly smooth texture is achieved. Use your hands to press mixture into bottom of pie dish. Place in freezer to set.
  3. To prepare the filling, open the cans of coconut milk and scrape out the cream. Discard or save the liquid. Blend the coconut cream with cashews, maple syrup, vanilla extract and lemon juice until completely smooth. Pour into pie dish over crust. Place in freezer for at least 1 hour to set.
  4. When filling feels firm to the touch, remove from freezer. First, top with strawberry slices. Stir peanut butter and maple syrup together then drizzle over strawberries. Next, drizzle coconut butter on top. Sprinkle shredded coconut and cacao nibs over everything.
  5. Enjoy right away or store in refrigerator.

  1. This looks fantastic Ilene! So fresh and summery. I can’t get enough of strawberries this summer and always have a pound or two hanging around. But I think I’m about to have a few less, real soon 😉
