Sometimes you just need something really nourishing and delicious to fill your winter cravings. And winter is definitely the best time time nurture yourself, care for yourself and give you body and soul exactly what it needs. So here’s a recipe that a good friend of mine taught me yesterday.
A delicious, nourishing raw pie / cake that will make you feel so loved and full of goodness!
Raw Organic Key Lime Pie (also known as Tahitian Coconut Lime Cake)
Macadamia Nut Crust:
1 1/4 Cups Raw Macadamia Nuts
1/4 Cup Cashews
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
1 Cup of fresh dates
Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt
To make the crust, process the macadamia nuts and cashews in the food processor until they form a fine meal. Add the coconut oil, salt and dates and continue until the mixture forms a wall on the side of the food processor. Empty into a pie pan and firmly press crust into place and place in the freezer while you prepare the Key Lime Filling.
Key Lime Filling:
1/4 Cup Fresh Lime juice
1 Cup of fresh dates
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, (liquid/melted/room temperature) or the meat of a fresh young coconut
2 Table Spoons Lime zest (save some for topping)
2 Ripe Avocados no brown bits, cut into small cubes (do this last to prevent browning).
To make the filling, add all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and fluid. Avocado can turn brown quicker if you over blend so be sure to blend just enough till smooth.
Pour into the Macadamia Nut Crust and smooth off for a nice finish.
Sprinkle lime zest over the top and freeze about 1-2 hours or place in the fridge overnight to set.
