Raw Lime Pie

I’m in heaven! This is an incredibly easy recipe and tastes amazing. Plus it’s so good for you! I have slightly changed the recipe from how I made this pie (see picture) as I felt I needed a thicker base so I have increased the amount of almonds. Like all recipes, play around a bit until you feel it is right for your eye and taste. Enjoy!

1/2 cup of almonds
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons desiccated coconut
3/4 cup dates
1.5 cup raw unsalted cashews, soaked
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Zest of one lime
3 tablespoons of maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
Soak cashews in cold water for at least 8 hours but overnight is best
Soak dates in warm water for 15 minutes and then drain the water before putting in the food processor
Add almonds, walnuts and desiccated coconut to the food processor along with the dates and pulse into a fine grain
Press the mixture into an 22cm springform pan. Push down firmly until it is well compacted and even. Put in the fridge to set. This can be made the day before
Add soaked cashews to the food processor along with lime juice, lime zest, coconut oil, coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla, and blend well until the mixture is smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed.
Pour mixture onto the base, spread evenly and sprinkle with lime zest
Store in the freezer and take out 30 minutes before serving
Serves: 8
