This is a great lime-lover’s dessert. It does contain cashews, so enjoy in moderation.
CRUST INGREDIENTS* *Organic if possible
- 1 cup raw walnuts, soaked for 15 minutes and rinsed well
- ¾ cup raw pecans
- 4 dates, pitted
- 2½ Tbs. coconut nectar or maple syrup
- ¼ tsp. high quality sea salt
FILLING INGREDIENTS* *Organic if possible
- ¾ cup fresh lime juice
- 2 cups raw cashews
- ½ cup coconut nectar or maple syrup
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- ¾ tsp. vanilla extract
Put all the crust ingredients together in the work bowl of a food processor with the blade in place and process until the ingredients form a ball. Press into a 9-inch Pyrex pie pan.
Wash and dry the food processor bowl and blade. Add the filling ingredients to the bowl with the blade in place. Blend the filling ingredients together in the processor, and pour over the crust. Place in the freezer and allow to set for at least 3 hours or overnight. Take out and let rest at room temperature for about 10 minutes, or as long as it takes to soften, before serving.
