Another title for this recipe could have been No-Bake Blueberry Ginger Lemon Ice Cream Pie with Coconut Walnut Crust, but I forgot to add the ginger.

Disclosure: I received free samples of California walnuts mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the California Walnut Commission and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

Alternatively, you could also call this a parfait or ice cream sundae if you have trouble slicing yours like I did.

No matter what you decide to call it, crumbles and all, this No-Bake Blueberry Ice Cream Pie with Coconut Walnut Crust, is absolutely delicious.

And, even a little bit nutritious too!

The Health Benefits of Walnuts

Walnuts, more so than any other nut, are rich in omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA for short, a plant-based essential fatty acid that’s important for both heart healthy and overall health.

In addition, walnuts have 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein to help keep you feeling full throughout the day~super important when you’re busy and on the go!

Oh, and of course they taste delicious too, and are super versatile, making them a delicious pairing with other nourishing foods.

One of my all time favorite healthy treats is to melt some dark chocolate chips in the microwave, then top off the melted chocolatey deliciousness with some walnuts, and a pinch of sea salt.

If this sounds good to you, make a note to stock your pantry {or freezer like I do} with walnuts and dark chocolate chips. Pronto!

Walnuts are a nourishing and delicious snack! #sponsored by California Walnuts

For this Recipe ReDux contest, I thought about making Walnut Mushroom Crostini with Goat Cheese…

Or, maybe a Spinach, Bell Pepper, Manchego, and Walnut Pesto Pizza…

Ingredients

Lemon Ice Cream

Coconut Walnut Crust

Pie

  • 1 recipe Lemon Ice Cream {above}
  • 1 recipe Coconut Walnut Crust {above}
  • 12 ounces fresh blueberries

Instructions

  • Pour 1/2 cup of the almond milk in a liquid measuring cup and stir in tapioca starch until dissolved. Add remaining 1/2 cup almond milk and pour into a blender. Add coconut milk, lemon juice, maple syrup, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Blend until all ingredients are well combined. Pour into a bowl and place in freezer to chill for 20 minutes.
  • While ice cream mixture is chilling, prepare the crust. Grease a 9-inch pie or tart dish with coconut oil. Combine walnuts and coconut in a food processor and pulse until walnut are finely chopped. Add maple syrup and sea salt, and pulse again until walnut mixture is moistened, and nuts are very finely chopped. Spread walnut coconut mixture on the bottom of the pie/tart dish and set aside.
  • Remove the ice cream mixture from the freezer and pour into a chilled ice cream maker, and mix per manufacturers instructions {it took ~15 minutes for the ice cream to form in my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker}. When it’s ready, spread ice cream over crust and place in freezer for ~30 minutes, or until ice cream is firm,
  • Remove from freezer, top with blueberries, slice, and serve immediately.

  1. This looks and sounds INCREDIBLE! And so easy too. Pinning for trying very soon. Once I have my family back from various travels to help me eat it. Good luck with the competition. This has my vote xx

  2. This is SUCH a brilliant recipe idea. I make a new homemade ice cream every week in the summer…will be making this for sure…crust optional. Of course it looks amazing, but we might end up eating the ice cream before I get the crust made. GORGEOUS pics…as always!

    1. Thanks so much Serena! I hear what you mean about eating up the ice cream ASAP, although I think the combo of crust + ice cream = blueberries goes fabulously together 🙂 Don’t be surprised if I show up uninvited at your house this summer to sample some ice cream! xoxo

  3. No words are coming to my mouth right now to describe this beauty! Other than, I want, I need, and can I please have!? Great recipe EA! If I’m to lazy to make the ice cream, maybe I’ll use the lemon cake Halo Top I have in the freezer!

    1. Awww….you’re too sweet Liz! You know there’s a slice waiting for you in my freezer any time you want it 🙂 I bet this would be yummy, and SUPER easy with Lemon Cake Halo Top-great idea!
