  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Add all crust ingredients except for the water to a food processor and blend until finely ground. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time while food processor is running until the mixture starts to clump together.
  • Press crust mixture into the bottom of a pie plate and 1 1.5 inches up the sides.
  • Bake crust for 15 minutes.
  • Add all filling ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and silky.
  • Pour filling mixture into the pie plate making sure not to go over the crust edge.
  • If there is remaining filling, pour it into an airtight container and put it in the fridge. It makes a perfect pudding.
  • Place pie into the fridge overnight or at least 4 hours so that it will set.

  1. One quick question. I can’t find “silken tofu” where I live. But I can fine “firm” and “extra firm”. Can either of these be modified to work in this recipe? It looks delicious and I am anxious to try it.

      1. I’ve made this a few times and it’s awesome. I skip the crust and eat it like pudding. I found that adding the zest of a lemon, or a couple of limes for my lime version, really makes it all pop. Definitely recommended. Off to buy your second cookbook (as I already have the first!). Thanks for your hard work putting these recipes together!

  2. Jill, what size zucchini do you consider small? I’ve seen zucchini labeled “small” that were 6″ long, maybe an inch in diameter, and other “small” zucchini that were a foot or more long and 2 to 3 inches in diameter.

    1. Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you, Jeffrey and your family for all of the hard work you do to accomplish great recipes, videos and cook books!! It’s really great to have a resource like yours and have everything we need to be successful on our plant based journey! God bless you all and wishing you continued success! I hope one day to buy your prepared meals from our local grocery store!!

  3. I made this lemon pie last night using lemons and limes. I let it sit overnight in the fridge and I just had a slice. It’s delicious and so much lighter than I thought it would be. I love it and I cannot find even a trace of zucchini flavor. It was a little soft (it held it’s shape but slumped just a bit when I put the slice on the plate) so I’m wondering what I could do to make it just a bit firmer. Thank you for another fabulous delicious recipe! ?

  4. The silken tofu in the video didn’t look like it was Mori-nu brand. Would that work as well? I’m a little doubtful about it setting up, but it looks like it did great in your demo. Thanks!

  5. This is an awesomely delicious pie! None of my dessert-grubbing friends knew it was g/f, vegan, made with a whole pack of tofu, or had a shredded zucchini in it. And since it was a cold dessert on a hot day, it was devoured first. Anyhow, I’m no recipe developer, but I couldn’t help bet wonder if the crust could have used a bit of salt. In any case, I I look forward to perusing your other recipes.

  6. This is so delicious! Lemon icebox was always a favorite, so happy I can enjoy a plant based version! Thank you for your recipes!

    Another amazing recipe!! This is soooo delicious and pretty too. I posted a photo and everyone wanted to come over for dessert!! I made mine lemon-lime and would even try all lime for a healthy key lime pie.

  8. Mmmm Mmmm good. I made just the filling and eat it as lemon pudding. I added the zest from two lemons and I found yellow zucchini squash and I used that without peeling. It made the pudding a nice light yellow color.

    Is there any substitute for squash? This is winter and I live far north – no squash of any kind to be had now… So thankful for quick reply!! 🙂

    I also added the zest of one lemon—delicious! The filling can also be made into a scrumptious “ice cream” using an ice cream maker.
