Instructions

Crust:

1) Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until mixture is crumbly and starts to stick together. Do not over process, as too much oil will be released from the nuts and you will end up with a nut butter.

2) Press into a 9-inch spring form pan. Place in the freezer as you prepare the filling.

Filling:

1) Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender (ie. Vitamix) and blend thoroughly.

2) Pour over crust and let set in the fridge up to a few hours. The mixture will be a solid gel when set.

Meringue:

1) Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender (ie. Vitamix) and blend thoroughly. Pour into a container and let set in the fridge up to several hours.

Assembly:

1) Top the filling with the meringue and place in the fridge again until firm.

2) Remove from spring form pan, top with lemon slices and shredded coconut. Enjoy!
