Raw Key Lime Pie

27 Jul

This is another raw recipe that I have been playing with.   The creamy lime filling is lovely.    I do enjoy the raw nut pastry too and it’s quite fun to make a dish that does not need any baking too!    This is a great alternative to the unhealthy version and worth a try! 

You could vary the nut crust if you wanted…but I like the combination of cashews and walnuts.  The unbaked crust is just lovely.  I might try this as a cheesecake base…nom nom!

INGREDIENTS

1 1/4 cup walnuts

1/4 cup cashews

2 tblspns coconut oil, melted

1 tblspns agave nectar

4 avocados

1/2 cup agave nectar

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup lime juice (or more to taste)

1 tblspn lime zest

METHOD

  • Process the nuts in a food processor until finely ground.
  • Add the 2 tblspns coconut oil and agave nectar and blend well.
  • Press into a pie dish (or individual bowls) and place into the freezer.
  • Place the avocados into a food processor and add the lime juice, 1/2 cup agave nectar, lime zest and coconut oil and blitz until smooth.
  • Pour into the nut crust and either place in the freezer for 1-2 hours or in the fridge overnight to set.
  • Eat and enjoy!

      About 1/4 cup…but you could add more to suit your own taste…I used a bit more because I like the lime taste.
