Healthy Coconut Cream Pie - THE FIT MUM FORMULA

Healthy Coconut Cream Pie

coconut cream pie

Healthy isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you consider making a cream pie, but this coconut cream pie contains protein, healthy fats and no refined sugar.

 

It’s British Pie Week this week (#BPW17) but while most people will be serving up huge calorific mounds of pastry served alongside buttery mash (don’t get me wrong I love this too once in a while),

 

I thought I’d go a little off piste with this nutritious little pudding that won’t sit quite so heavy in your belly for the next 48 hours.

 

In fact you could eat it guilt free for breakfast (in fact I think I did, when I made it last time).

 

(read this too: blueberry coconut chia bowl)

 

The texture is a little bit like rice pudding but without the refined sugar and carbs.

 

Feel free to reduce the sugar even further by swapping the maple syrup for the natural sweetener stevia.

Crustless Coconut Cream Pie, serves 6

 

INGREDIENTS

250ml coconut milk

4 large eggs

60ml maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla extract

40g unsweetened desiccated coconut, plus more to decorate (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 170˚c.

Combine all the ingredients except the desiccated coconut (a blender makes light work of this, or use a whisk), then stir in the coconut.

Grease 6 ramekins and divide the mixture between them. Or make one large one – this will require longer to cook.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the tops just start to turn golden.

Eat warm, or chill in the fridge.
