Matcha coconut pie

Only sweetened with maple syrup
Peanut free
Vegan pie with matcha: that's quite adventurous for many of us. But it can be even more adventurous. When we say: put matcha and tofu in your cake, do you think: YES? I didn't at first, but I did want to try. After perfecting this cake I was completely blown away. Can you handle some adventure in the kitchen? I can tell you that silken tofu doesn't taste as savory as the tofu you usually buy. Silken tofu is much softer and more neutral in taste. Almost a pudding in itself. Combined with the coconut milk, cashew nuts and maple syrup, this is a healthy cake that you could almost eat for breakfast.

This is how you make it

  1. First prepare the crust. Melt the coconut oil in a fireproof bowl in the oven. Add all ingredients in the blender and grind until fine.
  2. Put the mixture in the spring form. Firmly press down with a spoon. Put in the freezer for a while.
  3. Grate the zest of the lemon. Cut in half and squeeze out the juice. Put in the blender.
  4. Put the silken tofu in the blender.
  5. Also add the coconut milk, cashews and maple syrup and grind until smooth.
  6. Put everything in a saucepan and heat.
  7. Add the agar powder and stir well. Reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes simmer very slowly. Stir every now and then.
  8. Pour the mixture into the spring form. Let cool for at least 3 hours.
  9. Before serving, sprinkle a wafer-thin layer of matcha powder over the cake using a strainer.


  • Not a matcha fan? Then mash fresh fruit or heat dark chocolate with a good splash of coconut milk, and divide this over the cake.
  • Use the other 80 g of silken tofu in miso soup, for example. Add this to the soup last minute!
