Are you looking for something to do with all of those summer berries? Want something nice for summertime celebrations and parties? This is a simple, beautiful, and delicious pie. This recipe makes a 9″ pie.





  • 1 cup finely shredded, unsweetened dried coconut
  • 1 cup almonds, preferably soaked and dehydrated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans, preferably soaked and dehydrated
  • 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates


  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced

  • Shredded coconut, as desired 


  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 4 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla beans or vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sunflower lecithin



  1. Process the coconut, almonds, and salt in a food processor until finely ground.
  2. Add the pecans and process just until they are coarsely chopped.
  3. Add dates and process until the mixture begins to stick together.
  4. Press the crust mixture into a 9″ glass pie dish.


  1. Place the two sliced bananas in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
  2. Put 1 banana, 2 cups of whole strawberries, coconut butter, dates, vanilla, and salt in a blender, and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the lecithin and blend until it is incorporated.
  4. Pour the mixture over the sliced bananas in the bowl and stir well.
  5. Spread the strawberry banana coconut filling into the pie crust.
  6. Decorate the top with banana slices, strawberry slices, and coconut flakes, if desired.
  7. Chill at least 4 hours.


TIP: For a lower glycemic version, omit the dates and add an equivalent amount of chia gel plus stevia, to taste

    Sounds WONDERFUL!!! So – OK – about that sunflower lecithin …. what does that “do” for or in this, and would it hurt to leave it out?? (…an ingredient I’m not familiar with…) Thanks!!!

      Hi, Jan, I know that we spoke over Facebook about this, but I’ll share it here for the benefit of others.

      Sunflower lecithin is an emulsifier, so I’m assuming that it was used in this recipe to keep the ingredients from separating. There may be other ingredients that you can use as well, but this is an easier way to do this in this recipe.

      Sunflower lecithin is a phospholipid based dietary supplement rich in Phosphatidylcholine (PC), Phosphatidylinositol (PI), Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and Omega-6 (Linoleic Acid), which are considered beneficial to the brain and nervous system.
