Easy Vegan Key Lime Pie recipe

In case you are not familiar with what the traditional key lime pie is, here are some facts about this popular American dessert. Key lime pie is a Southern American dessert recipe, traditionally made of lime juice, egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk in a pie crust. Sometimes it is served with a meringue topping and baking it is entirely optional, due to a chemical reaction between condensed milk and the acidic lime juice the cream will thicken by itself.

Serves: 3
Ingredients
  • Cream:
  • 250g raw cashews, soaked overnight
  • 3 Tbsps coconut oil
  • the juice of 2 limes
  • the zest of 2 limes
  • healthy sweetener of choice, to taste (I used fructose)
  • Crust:
  • 100g plain biscuits (gluten-free, if needed)
  • 2 Tbsps coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Add the biscuits in a blender and blend until they have the consistency of breadcrumbs.
  2. Pour them into a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Mix well.
  3. I used 3 souffle forms for these mini vegan key lime pies. Use some parchment paper to cover the bottom (cut it into a circle). Grease the bottom and the walls of the form.
  4. Divide the crust composition into three, and add it into the forms. Press gently to cover the bottoms.
  5. Add the cashews, coconut oil and lime juice into the blender or food processor. Blend very well until the composition is extra smooth. Add a little bit of water or more lime juice if needed.
  6. When the composition is smooth and creamy, add the sweetener and blend for 1-2 more minutes.
  7. Add the lemon zest into the blender and mix using a spoon.
  8. Add 2-3 spoons of key lime pie cream into each form.
  9. Sprinkle some lemon zest on top of each one and place them in the freezer for 2-3 hours.

    Aloha,
    I want to try this recipe but concerned about the fructose. Could you suggest something healthier or tell me a little bit about the fructose that you use

    1. Ruxandra

      Hi, Shirley! You can use any other sweetener you want if you have fructose intolerance. Stevia powder may be a good substitute. For me it’s ok. I use fructose from the Sucrazit brand, it’s Romanian.
