Raw Vegan Recipes: Heavenly Key Lime Pie

January 26, 2016
Raw. Nutritious. Delicious. ;) This raw vegan key lime pie will make you go back for seconds, thirds, maybe even fourths! It's that good. And no refined sugar, wheat, cream whatsoever in this recipe. All natural and whole ingredients. So go ahead and eat your third slice confidently! It's 100% guilt-free. ** I usually cut the pie into squares and freeze it in a square 8 x 8 inch baking dish, but the circular one also works as well, plus I think it came out prettier as a whole pie. ;) But still equally delicious. Please comment below if you have any questions! :D

1. Soak the raw cashews in 1 cup of filtered water for 30 minutes. 2. To make crust, add into the food processor 1 1/4 cup of dates, 1 cup almonds, 1/2 cup walnuts, 1/4 cup coconut shreds. *Make sure dates are thoroughly pitted! There can be hidden seeds. Process for about 1 minute or until well combined. The crust should all clump together in a doughy ball. If too crumbly, add in 1 - 2 tablespoons of water. 3. Place the date nut crust in an 8 x 8 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper. Press down to make the crust until bottom is covered. Once finished, put in freezer to harden. 4. In the meantime, drain and rinse cashews. 5. To make the filling, add the cashews (drained and rinsed) and 1/4 cup of water in a small blender or food processor. Blend until you get a cashew cream. This will take about 2 minutes. Scrape down sides if needed. Place cream into a bowl and set aside. 6. Place 2 dates (pitted) and 2 tablespoons of water into the food processor or high speed blender to make a date paste. 7. Then add the 1/4 cup of lime juice, 1 avocado, 3/4 cups of coconut shreds, 1 tablespoon of orange juice, and the vanilla bean seeds --- Cut open the bean and scrape the seeds out of the vanilla bean with a knife --- with the date paste and cashew cream, and blend everything until smooth and creamy. Scrape down sides if needed! Should be smooth and creamy. 8. Take out the crust from the freezer. Then with a rubber spatula, scrape out the filling on the cooled crust and place back into the freezer to harden. This will take about 1 - 2 hours. 9. Slice it and indulge. <3
