Instructions for Making the Raw Vegan Recipe for Lemon Meringue Pie
Raw Base Recipe
Blend dates,salt, oils and honey/agave in a blender until smooth. Add almond flour OR crushed almonds and blend quickly , scrape down and quickly blend again. Don't over do it you don't want a bowl of muck :) You can also do this part by hand if it's to thick. Press into your muffin tins, molds, or cake tin ( which ever you use ) and freeze over night to really set it well. This is super important, Don't skip it!
Raw Lemon Cream Recipe
Combine all ingredients in the blender but only 1/2 of the lemon juice stated until really smooth. Taste it. Is it lemon enough for you or is it to sweet? This part is really your choice- keep adding until it tastes lemon enough for you. Keep blending until super fluffy smooth. Pour over the base and set in the freezer until firm to touch
Raw Meringue Recipe
Obviously we can't make real meringue so I have gone with a coconut whip! The flavours are very complementary. Your can of coconut cream should have chilled over- night. If it hasn't yet then you will need to let it have this time. Once chilled open and drain off fluid. Scoop out the thick cream. Add the rest of the ingredients ( agave and vanilla 0 and whip with beaters until smooth. Slather your pies and place back in the fridge to set :) Now go and enjoy your raw lemon meringue pie recipe!
