I am a big fan of simple recipes that don't need fancy equipment. For this recipe it does help to have a good blender, and 4 ramekins (about 10cm diameter, 5cm deep).
Use a blender to mix together all ingredients for the base. The mixture should be quite fine, moist and sticking together when molded with the hands.
Press the mixture firmly into the base of your tin or ramekins.
Use a blender to mix together all of the ingredients for the filling. The mixture should be thick but very smooth.
Pour the mixture on top of your base(s).
Pop the pies in the freezer for a minimum of 3 hours.
Allow to soften for 15-20 minutes before serving
