Nothing ushers in Spring quite like a key lime pie. However, I didn't want to make something that was filled with artificial garbage so I scoured the Internet for a healthier recipe. I found one worth trying on this website, so I gave it a try! Honestly, I think they used a stock photo for their picture because mine didn't even come close to looking like theirs. However, my friends and I, as well as my 7-year-old daughter, loved the taste! So, as the old Louisiana saying goes, "Don't look at it, just eat it!" Bon appétit!
**Please note the recipe doesn't call for Pomegranate juice. I positioned the bottle in this ingredient grouping by mistake. However, you can enjoy this delicious Key Lime Pie with a small glass of Pom Wonderful. :)
2 cups organic raw mixed nuts
1/4 cup coconut manna
4 large medjool dates, pitted
*Next time I make this crust, I will add some ground organic flaxseed for added omega-3's.
Pulse in food processor until it looks like a sticky granola texture. Press into pie mold.
3 ripe organic avocados, mashed
Juice of 4 organic limes
2 tbsp lime zest
1/2 cup organic Lucuma powder
3/4 cup organic raw honey
Mix well. Pour and spread to fill the crust. Freeze for at least an hour to set.
1 cup organic raw cashews, soaked
3 tbsp organic coconut manna
1/4 cup Fage Greek yogurt
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
2 tbsp organic Lucuma powder
2 tbsp organic raw honey
Pinch sea salt
Process the cashews. Add them with the rest of the ingredients and whip them up until fluffy. Top the pie and re-freeze.
Set out 10 min prior to serving.
