Raw vegan key lime pie Recipe

in ecoTrainlast month (edited)

For this I merged a couple of recipes together with a few of my own mix ups and twists

I made the buckwheat pastry base first

I started by blending 1/3 of a cup of sunflower seeds so they were more of a flour like texture. I then added 1 cup buckwheat flour, pinch of salt, zest of a lime, 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, a little agave to taste (personally I only added about half a tablespoon but add up to two for personal taste. Blend in a food processor adding a little cold water at a time till you have dough like texture.

I then rolled out the dough adding extra buckwheat flower to stop it sticking to the board and rolling pin.
once done I pressed it into a tart tin and popped into the dehydrator till slightly crispy. I kept mine a little more doughy as I like that consistency.

For the filling.
In a food processor blend:
1/2 cup of lime juice
1 tin of coconut cream full fat
The zest from the limes, around 1 tbsp
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
A pinch of turmeric
A pinch of spirulina for colour.
2 tablespoons of agave or natural sweetener if desired ( I used no sweeter as I like it tangy)

Pour into the base and chill or freeze till set.





I can almost taste that smooth tanginess.... Sunflower seeds blended into the dough, great idea!

it's very limey and tangy!

I'm used to seeing cashews in raw cheesecake-ish vegan things. This is an interesting take, thanks for sharing it with us, it looks delicious.

I’ve wish I had the Ingredients to make this right now. I just got in from shopping so I’m not going out again. This is definitely going to be on my mind during my next grocery trip!
