Introduction

This is an amazing dessert or treat, but healthy! Now, it isn't exactly low in fat/calories. But you can have a small slice and it does hold you over, since there is plenty of protein/fat in there. Very refreshing!

(I don't care for avocados, and you don't even know it is in here.)

Ingredients

    RAW KEY LIME PIE

    FILLING:
    1 CUP Walnuts. Soaked in water, 3hours or more (FYI - I use Walnuts)
    3/4 CUP Olive oil
    3/4 CUP Honey (I use local honey)
    1/2 CUP Lime Juice (from fresh Limes)
    Zest of 3 Limes
    1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
    1 Medium Ripe Avocado (cut up in smaller pieces)

    FILLING instructions: Put the ingredients in a Blend-Tec, Vita-Mix or high speed blender and blend until smooth. (FYI _ If you are using a normal everyday blender, it is harder and you may need to mix it as you go instead of all at once). You can also use a Food Processor to mix it, but it won't be as "creamy".


    CRUST:
    1 CUP Almonds
    1/4 CUP shredded coconut (optional).
    2 Tablespoons butter
    1 CUP Dates (pitted, and cut up on smaller pieces. Helps to mix/process better).
    Pinch of Vanilla
    Pinch of Salt

    CRUST instructions: Put nuts in the food processor and mix. Then add the coconut (if adding), dates and process. Last add the butter, vanilla and salt. Mix well.


    Press the crust into a pie pan, or 9x9 pan. Then pour the filling onto the crust. Even it out.
    Put plastic or foil over the top of the pan. Put in the freezer and let set for 3-4 hours. The longer, the better.

    NOTES:
    It will be quite tangy the first day, but the following days, the tanginess will subside as all the ingredients blend together.

    KEEP in the freezer! Get a slice when you want a treat!
    NOTE: This will soften up and if put or stored in the fridgerator, or out for a "dinner/dessert". It also changes the taste of it. It is meant to be a frozen/cold treat!

    I learned of this recipe from a friend of mine, and I modified it to my taste and food restrictions.

Tips

You can use any type of "soft" nut in place of the walnut.

You can use any type of "hard" nut in place of the almonds

Basically - have fun playing with it for your taste.
