Summer Berry Cashew Cream Pie [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

Everyone who tried it enjoyed this recipe and they were all quite surprised that the only ingredients were fruit and nuts! I was able to whip this up easily in an afternoon and let it set in the fridge so the flavors would be able to develop in time for dessert that evening. I also didn't have a food processor on hand, so this was made with just a blender and my two hands! This is refreshing and not too sweet. Serve with extra berries. Extra berries = extra fun. Every time. It would be lovely with some mint sprigs too.

Summer Berry Cashew Cream Pie [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]



  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups dates


  • 2 cups cashews
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Pinch Himalayan salt
  • Water, as needed


  • Sliced strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Anything else you like


To make the crust:

  1. Process the oats into flour in a blender or food processor. If you’re using a food processor, add in the dates and process until it all sticks together. If you’re using a blender, dump the oat flour into a bowl and combine the dates and oat flour together with your hands until it all is evenly gooey. This will take a few minutes and you will have to get your hands a bit dirty. Press this “dough” into a pie dish and put in the fridge.

To make the cream:

  1. Blend everything together until it’s smooth and thick, adding water as needed. You want it to be the texture of a thick yogurt. Pour this into your crust and leave in the fridge for three hours or preferably overnight. Decorate with berries and enjoy!

I loved this recipe. I had no problems with the crust, it came together beautifully.
I skipped the oil and added more lemon. It might be nice with key lime juice instead.
I love simple recipes and this one hit the sweet spot between the amount of work and the result. It will be one of my regular dishes for company and for my husband so he never buys the diary version again!

Having tried this one this week, the recipe needed lots of \'tweaking\' in order to work.. The crust, as suggested, just stayed dry & crumbly & wouldn\'t mesh together.. In the end, I added a little water & an egg to bind & baked it for 15mins. Also, the \'cashew cream\', made as suggested, was very bland.. In the end, I added 4x the amount of suggested lemon juice & finally got an interesting & delicious filling. Overall, it still had lots of sugar equivalents in.. (next time, I\'ll add Fig paste to the crust instead of dates & less Maple syrup to the cashew cream).. In summary, with considerable changes to the recipe, it finally came together as something that would not crumble & tasted delicious (I added seasonal plums & bananas to garnish).. Good luck!

You can help it while keeping it vegan by using a flax substitute for the egg, which is 1 Tbsp ground flax, 3 Tbsp water. Mix and let is set for a few minutes. Then mix with it like it is an egg.
