Methods/steps

For the crust:

1) Put the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until crumbly and sticking together a bit.

2) Dump the contents into the bottom of a 9-inch spring-form pan and press down until the entire bottom is evenly covered.

3) Place in freezer until you are ready to pour the filling on top.

For the filling:

1) Place everything but the coconut, vanilla, and salt into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.

2) Add the remaining ingredients and blend until everything is incorporated, but do not over blend.

3) Pour the filling atop the crust and then place the pie into the freezer for 2-3 hours. Move to the fridge and keep there until ready to eat.

Enjoy!
