So I was watching the news this morning – and they mentioned key lime pie! KEY LIME PIE (drool). As they made it, they named off a bunch of ingredients as I whizzed together an almost raw, gluten free, dairy free Key Lime Pie (vegan too if you switch out the honey for another sweetener).
For the Crust
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup coconut
3 medjooled dates (pitted)
3 tsp maca powder
Pinch of sea salt
Whiz all crust ingredients together in food processor. The crust will not be solid when finished, it’s more crumbly! If you want it more solid, use more dates.
Use 2 heaping TBSP per mini mason jar
For the Top
2 ripe avocados
Juice of 1 – 2 limes – if you are using actual key limes you will have to use a few more. A little under 1/4 cup lime juice.
Zest of one of limes
1-2 TBSP honey or sweetener of choice (or enough to your taste)
Put all top ingredients together in food processor and whiz together until smooth. Taste and adjust flavors as needed. You may like it sweeter, or want more lime or lime zest at this point!
Spoon 2 TBSP on top of crust.
Awesome breakfast or snack – plus it freezers awesome (and will help avocado stay green– so would be a great snack to send with the kids in their lunch kits – as it should be thawed by lunch time!
And of course there is something special about mason jars! I don’t know why but I love them – they range up there in my favorite things with sharpies, bath and body works and lululemon
ps. Thank you to the news this morning for inspiring this recipe!! It was tasty!
