What is your favorite Key Lime Pie experience?!!
never let the things
take you away from
the things you have
We just celebrated my dad’s 85th birthday today, which blows me away. One, because he is the most inspirational 85 year old around and can out-run all of us put together, and Two, because it’s just weird and wrong. How did he get to be that old.
If you know my dad, you can’t help but have a huge smile on your face because he’s such a cutiepie, lol. And he’s proud of every one of those 85 years and works it all the time.
And does that have anything to do with Key Lime Pie?
Actually, it does! Not only is ti by far the BEST Key Lime Pie Recipe I’ve ever tasted AND it’s not just free of sugar, grain, gluten, dairy, soy, and chemicals, but also super easy and pumped to the max with phytonutrients, omega 3 fatty acids, protein and the list goes on and on.
The reason I made this pie today was for my cute Daddy because he grew up in Key West, Florida and loves Key Lime Pie. So instead of the usual birthday cake, we thought this would put a much broader smile on his face.
And how did this recipe come to be?
I was running late, with overlapping meetings and very little time. I needed it to set up faster than I had time for.
So I searched for Key Lime Pie recipes, and found a recipe that caught my eye, which was a vegan one. But it required baking and there was no way I wanted to heat up these healthy ingredients and compromise their nutrients. So I searched through a few more recipes and figured out which ingredients I thought would blend well for flavor, and still give me a texture that would be thick enough to serve quickly.
And this is what I came up with. I can’t wait to hear how it works out for you!
I didn’t add any liquid, but if your blender is screaming at you, it may be necessary to add a tablespoon or two of rich coconut milk. If you can get it to work without, it will be super light and fluffy and amazing.
I took it to the family party and this pie was a huge hit. It truly was delicious and seriously the best raw key lime pie I have ever tasted!

Best Raw Key Lime Pie Ever!
CRUST: For lack of time, I’ll direct you to my favorite pie crust recipe, my “Cookie Crust” recipe in my “Beauty In Every Bite Desserts Cookbook. I used almonds for the flavors of this pie (instead of walnuts) and it was so light and yummy!
- 1 cup cashews (soaked)
- 1/3 cup organic coconut oil
- 1 avocado
- 1/3 cup raw honey – if you can find it local, that’s best, if not, here’s one we love
- 1 scoop of Green Superfood, lemon lime flavor
- 2 tablespoons pure organic maple syrup
- 3 limes, mostly peeled, leaving a sliver of peel on each
- 1/2 teaspoon Probiotic Powder or 1 Tablespoon homemade water kefir
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- dash of himalayan sea salt (fine grade)
Mix all of the filling ingredients together in the above order in a high powered blender (my favorite is Blendtec) Mix until light and fluffy. If you need a little moisture, add rich coconut milk, one teaspoon at a time.
Refrigerate 30 minutes. Serve.
