RAWMAZING KEY LIME PIE

Soy-Free, Grain-Free, Raw

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Setting Time: 3 hours

Serves 8–10

 

Crust

1 cup dried dates

1/2 cup whole almonds, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup whole pecans, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut

1 Tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of sea salt

 

Filling

2 cups cashews

3/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/2 cup maple syrup

⅓ cup melted coconut oil

1 tsp matcha powder (optional for color only)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

 

Garnish

6 key limes, sliced (optional)

 

Make It Like So

  1. Put all the crust ingredients into a food processor, and process until the ingredients can just stick together. You shouldn’t have a gooey mess. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Press the crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9­inch glass pie dish.
  2. Place all the filling ingredients in your high-speed blender or food processor and blend until the filling is completely smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour the filling evenly over the pie crust, smooth with a spatula. Place the pie in the freezer covered to set for at least 3 hours, or overnight if possible.
  4. Let the pie sit at room temperature for 10 minutes and garnish with key limes before serving.

The colder months can make it hard to find inspiration to workout. The tennis courts are barren, the outdoor pools are being drained and covered, and morning runs are becoming a struggle as the sun doesn’t even want to wake up early anymore.

Soothe Tea to the Rescue!

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again – cold and flu season.
