Recipe Directions

Open up the young coconut and save the water. Carve out the meat, clean it off, then dump it into the blender. Add the trimmed strawberries, some sweetener (mine weren’t very sweet, so I had to use quite a bit of sweetener) and coconut water to get it mixing well (I have a wimpy blender). Blend until smooth. Lastly add the melted coconut oil. You can also add some vanilla. For the crust, which should be made FIRST, maybe a couple hours in advance, soak the almonds overnight, then dry them in the sun for a couple hours, then grind into a meal. Pour in some sweetener (I used maple syrup) until a little sticky. Add the salt and psyllium, then press into a bowl or plate to form the crust. I let my crust dry in the sun for a few hours to help it set. Pour in the mousse and chill a few hours in the fridge. My hubby loved this.

An easy mousse you can enjoy plain or make it into a pie as I did.

This is delicious and I have made it twice. However, mine didn't set up as well as yours. Maybe I had too much moisture??

This does look absolutely yummy; and easy to make too! Do you think you can grind the almonds and make the crust while they're wet so-as to do the sun dehydrating process just once instead of twice? Also I'm thinking about throwing a banana into the mix for a bit more flavor... think it will be a positive or negative?

I like the idea of drying the crust in the sun before pouring in the filling. I made a fruit pie last week and the crust was disgusting - all soggy. I think I added too much moisture also.

Thanks. I was wondering because I don't have a psyllium. We have a lot of young coconuts. :)

I think the pie crust will hold without the psyllium. You can make crusts in many ways, but I didn't have any dates, so I did without.

When I first saw the picture I thought, is this really raw?? :D Thanks!! I never thought of making a mousse for pie. Is there anything I can substitute for psyllium?
