We’re big fans of pies around here. There’s something about a good pie that just brings people together. Slices of pie are often enjoyed and raved over around dinner tables, fires, and picnic blankets. We love experimenting with healthy versions of classic pies like apple pie, getting creative with beneficial ingredients like with this cacao and coconut cream pie, and taking advantage of seasonal ingredients like in the open-faced strawberry pie.
Another famous pie that warrants a healthier rendition is key lime pie. The creamy texture of the cool filling combined with the sweet and crunchy crust is irresistible. Top it with some homemade whipped cream, and you’re set! This sugar free, grain free key lime pie has a crust made out of coconut oil, coconut flakes, dates, and almonds, and a filling comprised of healthful ingredients like raw cream, yogurt, eggs, and gelatin. When it comes time to treat yourself with a little something sweet, this key lime pie is the way to go. It only takes a little bit to fill you up and satisfy that desire for something sweet, but thankfully, its ingredients promote your health and can boost your wellbeing.
“This refreshing dessert combines a simple pie crust made with almonds, dried fruit and coconut flakes with homemade ice cream. I love lime but you can easily adapt using lemons. Of course any homemade ice cream recipe will work for the filling. Homemade coconut ice cream makes a great dairy-free version!
