This Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie is delish! It is gluten, dairy & refined sugar friendly. The taste actually reminds me of the Raw Macadamia & Lime Cheesecake but its much cheaper to make. It's super easy, I've been keeping it in the freezer and I grab a slice when I feel like a treat (let it defrost for about 10-15mins). Taste the filling mixture once you've blended it all and adjust it to taste - I added lots more lime and a bit more sweetener.
Almost all of the ingredients can be purchased from our online store. Hope you enjoy it!
