Nicole MacPherson: Meatless Mummy Con Carne


Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Pie

The dessert that is like an edible spa treatment


If there's one thing I love to do, it is to create a dessert that features all sorts of nutritional goodness - especially if no one eating it can tell that there are "secret ingredients."

Oh, strawberries! Could there be a more perfect fruit? Sweet, juicy, and so tantalizingly colourful, strawberries are the stars of the berry world, in my opinion. One cup contains 47 calories and 141% of your daily total of Vitamin C, so eating them is exactly akin to boosting your immunity in a very tasty way. 

Did you know that avocado and coconut milk are both great for your skin and hair? Put them together with all that Vitamin C, and it's practically a beauty crime NOT to make this frozen strawberry daiquiri pie! It takes a little planning but is so easy to throw together, you'll want to make this all the time. This dessert will make you feel beautiful, and glow from the inside out.


1-397 mL can full-fat coconut milk
3 cups frozen sliced strawberries
2 ripe avocados
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup honey or agave
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted



  24 hours prior to making this recipe, put the coconut milk and the strawberries in the fridge. The coconut milk needs to be fully chilled before use, and the strawberries need to be thawed. 

  In a food processor, puree together the thawed strawberries, avocados, lime juice, and honey or agave. Keep pureeing until the mixture is very smooth with no lumps. 

  Turn the can of coconut milk over, open it from the bottom, and pour off the watery liquid (save it for a smoothie later!). Scoop out the thick, hardened, creamy part and add it to the food processor. Blend together with the avocado-strawberry mixture.

  In a medium bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs and melted coconut oil. Press firmly into a 9-inch pie pan to make a crust.

  Pour the strawberry mixture over the graham cracker crust. Place in the freezer for 5-6 hours, until very firm.

  Garnish with fresh strawberries, if desired, or a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Perfection! You can feel your skin glowing and your hair shining!
