Key Lime Pie

Just because we’re in the trenches of winter, doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some tasty spring-inspired desserts.

There’s something about January that makes me ache for spring. It’s still cold outside but the days have already started getting longer and the snow from last week’s storm has started to thaw.

It’s the perfect time of year to start making desserts that inspire you to look ahead to the new year and new beginnings. This oh-so-heavenly yet healthy vegan key lime pie is the best start.
