Blueberry Cream Pie
Blueberry creamy pie made with dairy-free coconut cream filling and homemade paleo coconut flour crust. Fresh and easy summer dessert topped with plenty of fresh blueberries! An easy paleo blueberry cream pie recipe.
I had good intentions of publishing recipes I had filmed last week, but when I got on the plane, I accidentally instantly switched onto vacation mode.
Oh well, somebody has to do it. 🙂
There was no turning back.
I got caught up in the long walks in the sunshine and the views of rolling mountains and vineyards.
Plus, you can only imagine the boatloads of homemade gnocchi, pasta, and mind-blowing meatballs and red sauce that is involved in our family parties.
With a house filled with Italian family members who all love to cook, there was no shortage of homemade tiramisu and cannolis (eating it for daaaays, no problem!).
So, now I am clicking away in the airport, trying to get some recipes out before we board.
Better late then never, right?
I guess there is always room for blueberry pie- at least in my world.
Benefits of going home include: the blueberry cream pie waiting for me in the freezer and leftover paleo brownie cookies from last week that are calling my name!!
cream pie of all kinds
I love this pie, because it is so easy to make and it’s a light a refreshing dessert, when you aren’t in the chocolate mood.
Because there are only two dessert categories in my mind:
- And everything else.
Yes, chocolate is most definitely it’s own category.
I adapted this filling recipe from one of my all-time favorite coconut cream pie recipes that somehow isn’t published yet.
It’s sandwiched with a layer of chocolate and I knew I had to make something similar, but with fruit.
It’s the bomb!
So, I decided to put a spin on it and I’m liking the blueberry turn we took.
- 1 cup soft medjool dates pitted
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup arrowroot flour
- 1/4 cup cococnut flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups full fat canned coconut milk about 1 1/2 can Chaokoh brand
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 5 teaspoons gelatin
- 1/2 cup coconut shreds
|Cook Time||15 minutes|
|Prep Time||15 minutes|
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a 8" pie or tart pan with parchment paper.
- In a food processor, combine ingredients for crust until it pulses together and becomes a graham cracker crust consistency.
- With your fingers or the bottom of a measuring cup, press crust into the bottom and halfway up the sides of pie pan.
- Bake crust on 350F for about 15 minutes until golden, then cool before adding filling.
- In a saucepan whisk together all ingredients (except coconut shreds) for filling. Heat on stove until simmers and becomes smooth. Use an immersion blender or transfer to a regular blender to puree until completely smooth of any gelatin clumps. Then stir in coconut flakes.
- Pour filling over crust and chill in freezer for about 30-60 minutes or until reaches desired consistency.
- Once pie is chilled, top with fresh blueberries and serve. Optional: drizzle lightly with honey or top with ice-cream.

There is no mention of coconut flakes in the ingredients 🤔
Hi Mona, just updated this, thanks for pointing it out! I missed that one. 🙂
What coconut shreds? How much?
Hi Patty, it’s 1/2 cup coconut shreds.
Thanks for the recipe, I love so many of yours! Can I just check; should it be coconut flour or cocoa in the crust?
Hi Nicole, it’s coconut flour. Thanks!
This looks amazing!! In the instructions, though, it calls for adding coconut shreds, which is not listed in the ingredients. Was that an “oops” and should we just omit the coconut shreds??
Hi Kati, it’s 1/2 cup coconut shreds… I updated the recipe. Thank you! 🙂
The recipe sounds delicious and I cannot wait to make it! But it does not say the amount of coconut shreds which are to be used. I am going to try and guess the amount when I make it.
I apologize; I wrote asking about there not being an amount of coconut shredding listed. I was writing down the recipe after that and I found it. I am so sorry that I did not see it when I was looking at the recipe the first time. I am excited to make it!
Do you continue to store this in the freezer or will it do okay in the fridge?
Hi Jenna, I store it in the fridge for 1-2 days, then transfer to the freezer. 🙂
Any subs for the gelatin??
Hi Marci, maybe making a custard with eggs would work.
Thank you for this recipe. I almost didn’t click on it as I was thinking it was another cheesecake type pie which will be made with cashews (deadly allergic). I was so happy to see the ingredients lists has no cashews and plan on making this pie sometime in the next few days. ^_^
I did not get this recipe to turn out for me. Is the filling supposed to thicken a little after it simmers? Is it ok to use beef gelatin powder?
Hi Sarah, it won’t thicken until it chills. 🙂
This looks so good! Can I make with other kinds of berries?
For sure! That’s a great idea- raspberries or strawberries would be fantastic!
Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
Hi Vanessa, it should last about 4 days in the fridge, then you can transfer it to the freezer and keep it for a few months. 🙂
