This recipe is da bomb!  It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare.  And yes, this is Vegan.  The "cream" comes from raw organic cashews.  The only drawback is waiting for the pie to chill.  This will take two to three hours in the refrigerator. Well worth the wait!

I wish I could say it is my own creation, but I can't.  I must give all the credit to Christel, a fellow admirer of Sarah Shilhavy @ Free Coconut Recipes.  I have adjusted the recipe so that it meets the requirements of the Maximized Living Advanced Plan - using liquid stevia instead of honey, for instance; and I should also mention that the original recipe was for STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE, and I changed that, too.  This was to meet the requirements of Dr. Cliff, who does not eat strawberries, so if you are so inclined, feel free to switch out the berries. Just make SURE the berries are organic.  Conventionally grown berries are loaded with pesticides.  Just don't eat them.

I am including a link to Sarah Shilhavy's website, so you can watch her prepare this recipe, all in a high speed blender, in less than 5 minutes.  Just be sure to use the "Maximized" ingredients below.
