Raw mamey pie

Written by Kajsa IngelssonApril 3, 2021

Mamey is a delicious fruit I recently discovered. It tastes a bit like sweet potato with a mix of cinnamon and apricot, if that makes sense? The flesh is orange, and it’s high in both vitamin C and A, making it great for skin, eyes and your immune system. Its only in season from march to the beginning of may though, so enjoy it while you can 🙂

Raw Mamey Pie

Serves 5-8 people

  • 4-5 cups (12 dl) mamey
  • ½ banana (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A pinch salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoon psyllium husk or ground flaxseeds
  • ½ cup (1 dl) plant-based milk
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 cups (5 dl) Walnuts
  • 1 cup (2.5 dl) Dried Coconut
  • 8-10 dates
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons water

How to make it come together:

  • Place nuts in the food processor and chop fine.
  • Add all coconut and spices pulse a few times to evenly distribute.
  • Add dates and process until mixture either balls up or keeps pushing up the side and not falling back into the center.
  • Using hands (it helps to keep fingers moistened with water) press the mixture into an 8″ pie pan or springform pan.
  • Time to make the filling! Place all the ingredients for filling in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  • Pour into the pie crust and put in the fridge or freezer until it sets and becomes more firm.
  • Garnish with chopped nuts and serve cold.
