What you’ll need:
Matcha Pie Recipe
- 1 cup of dates
- 1 cup of walnuts
- 1-2 tbsp of water
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender until combined into a “dough”. Line a baking dish with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil and press date and walnut mixture firmly into pan.
- 1 cup of cashews soaked in water overnight
- 1/2 lemon juiced
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1/2 cup of coconut yogurt (we love Cocojune or Culina!) (1/4 for mixture, 1/4 for topping)
- 1/4 cup of coconut milk
- 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup of maple syrup
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 2 tsp of Matcha powder
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender until smooth and creamy. Add 2 tsp of matcha powder to the remaining filling and blend.
Pour filling into crust. Add a few dollops of the remaining coconut yogurt on top of the pie. Using a toothpick swirl the coconut yogurt into the matcha filling until you have your desired design. Place in the freezer for 2 hours, remove 30 mins before serving.
