Preparation

To Make the Filling:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium-high until mixture comes together, and blueberries are well blended.
  2. Pour into the prepared crust, and place in the freezer while you prepare the whipped cream.

To Make the Whipped Cream:

  1. Carefully open the can of chilled coconut milk, keeping it level.
  2. Scoop the thick coconut cream into a large bowl of a stand mixer. Save the coconut milk liquid for another use.
  3. Beat the coconut cream for 3-5 minutes on high speed, until it becomes fluffy and light with soft peaks. Mix in your sweetener and vanilla, if using.

To Make the Crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Melt together coconut oil and maple syrup. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor, pulse together the coconut, almond flour, lavender buds, and salt until finely ground.
  4. Add liquid mixture to almond-coconut mixture in the food processor. Pulse until coarse crumbs form (dough should clump together when squeezed).
  5. Transfer dough to a greased 9-inch pie pan. Using a measuring cup or your fingers, evenly press dough in bottom and up sides of pan.
  6. Bake in center of oven until golden and firm, about 12-15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, at least 1 hour.
