Raw Coconut Cream Pie

Updated: Mar 25, 2019



I love to make healthy desserts. I used to be addicted to sugar, and raw desserts helped me to overcome that addiction.

Sugar cravings can be one of the most challenging obstacles to overcome when starting a more nutritional diet.

The fact of the matter is that sugar is addictive. Eating sugar stimulates the production of dopamine in the brain, which sends pleasure signals throughout the body. When you come down from your sugar high, your dopamine levels fall, and you’re likely to reach for those sugary foods again to feel happy.


If you're trying to reduce your sugar intake, or looking for a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth, this recipe is for you.


I hope you have the opportunity to make it. Enjoy it!


The recipe is one of Matthew Kenney's favourites. Kenney is a global pioneer of plant-based cuisine.
