This no bake key lime pie recipe is the last video to put up in my raw food recipes video series. Actually this post will have the last 2 videos, one for the pie and another showing how to make the crust, which is amazing! The filling for the pie is incredibly nutritious with an avocado base. The avocado gets completely hidden behind the lime and no one will detect it in there at all. All you notice is a heavenly creamy smooth base with great mouth feel, for the sweet lime flavor to slide over your taste buds on. 

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the more common flavors: vanilla and chocolate and even strawberry that a dessert that is ultra delicious, and a flavor we haven’t had much of, will transport us to an exotic land, and yet at the same time wake us up into really experiencing it in the now.  You taste this and suddenly go ‘Oh wow Lime! Lime is amazing!!’ This pie recipe seems to do that more than any other, and so it is a great dessert to take to a pot luck. It is unique and memorable.

The Wonderful Macadamia Coconut Pie Crust

This raw pie crust is wonderful and quite amazing. It has only 3 ingredients. It is so easy, so nutritious and best of all it tastes great. I get asked about it incredulously by people eating it often. ‘How can it be?’ That a crust this healthy, and easy to make, can be so good?  No grain, no baking, just process macadamias and coconut with a touch of agave and it holds together well. It is rich yet light and the tropical macadamia and coconut go so well with lime too.

I am happy to share this recipe with you. But I can’t share the pie; it’s gone. However, we have the recipe so we can make more! Yay!!  Let’s start by making the crust recipe.

Macadamia Coconut Crust

Ingredients

1 ½ cups Macadamias (don’t soak)
1 cup dried shredded Coconut
1 Tbsp Agave, or Honey

Directions

Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until they are well broken down and start to clump together. Then transfer the mixture to a pie plate and press into bottom and along the edges. When it is formed set aside and get your filling ready to pour in.

Note: in the video below I used 1 cup of macadamia nuts. If you use either 1 cup or 1 and a half cups your crust is going to turn out great. I added extra nuts into mine this time because I am using a large pie plate.

Transfer to a plate. I garnished with a mint leaf, just because I had them, but there is no mint in it. It was just pretty. Some reserved lime zest sprinkled on top would look nice as well!
