Raw Vegan Avocado Key Lime Pie Recipe

The magic of key lime pie… Ahhhh it is to die for isn’t it? Creamy delicious sour but sweet flavour dancing on your taste buds…

I used to eat the whole damn pie as a kid! I remember going to potlucks with my mom and just skipping the meal so that I could steal that key lime pie right our of the kitchen and sit outside and eat it alone. It is absolutely shocking that I was not a child of 1,000 pounds.

Originally key lime pie was made with condensed milk after its invention in 1856, but we don't like milk around here condensed or not it's bad for you. So we are going to substitute instead with delicious cashews and coconut oil. Oh and forget the graham cracker curst.. I can do one better, coconut almond and date crust. HELLO!!!!!!!
