Peanut Butter Coconut Cream Pie

by José Stichbury

This impressive make-ahead dessert is both gluten and dairy free and would be a great one to serve up at a special occasion. Just remember to make it the night before you plan to eat it, to give the pie time to set in the fridge. This pie has a healthy amount of coconut oil, which has been shown to be easy to digest and also produces sustained energy and increases your metabolism. Thank you Jose Stichbury at Swoon Food for this crowd-pleasing dessert!
