Raw Key Lime Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1/2 a cup of almonds
  • a pinch of salt
  • 10 big, soft medjule dates
  • a dash of agave or coconut nectar or maple syrup
  • 1 cup of raw cashews
  • a small handful of spinach
  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 a cup of coconut oil
  • 2 table spoons of sweetener (agave or coconut nectar)
  • fresh fruit (to go on top of the lime pie)

Method

To make this Raw Key Lime Pie you will need a pie dish with the pop out middle bit (not sure what they are called) and a food processor.

Before you begin

Soak 1 cup of raw cashews in water for about 2 to 4 hours.

  1. Put a cup of walnuts, half a cup of almonds, a little salt (I use pink himalayan) about 10 big soft medjule dates, and a dash of agave or coconut nectar even maple syrup into the food processor, and process until it is combined and will press and hold together when pinched.
  2. Press the mix into the tin and smooth it over leaving no holes, if you have a big tin you might need to up the nuts and dates in the mix. Once its done put it in the fridge.
  3. Now have a cup of raw cashews that have been soaked and rinsed in water for 2 to 4 hours, put them in a blender with a small handful of spinach, the flesh of 2 limes, half a cup of warmed coconut oil (leave it in the sun or you can submerge it in hot water) 2 table spoons of sweetener in agave or coconut nectar- if you want it sweeter add more.
  4. Blend the mix until it’s super smooth, taste test it for lime and sweetness and adjust how you want it then pour the mix into the pre-made pie crust and sit in the fridge for a few hours to set.
  5. Decorate the top with fruit.

Growing up on a small farm in northern Victoria, veganism was the furthest thing from my mind, other than being something I couldn’t spell. I thought the idea of it sounded ridiculous. I was well indoctrinated into the idea that animals are a commodity.

At age 19 I went vegetarian for my health, and a couple of years later while doing research into vegetarianism I stumbled across information about veganism. The more I read the more it made sense, and I started putting it into play.

I didn’t know any other vegans at the time and wouldn’t for a long time, until I become part of the community many years later. I realise now it was silly but I was ashamed to call myself vegan at the time, and even though I lived the life I never called myself one, but I spent my days happily learning the ins and outs of my new life.

My health improved and I became fitter and stronger than I ever thought I could be. And I was happy. Now, many years later I feel at home and very comfortable with my choices, and relish the vegan community that I have joined. I now work as a career firefighter with a passion for the kitchen. I hope my recipes that I share will help you to embrace and enjoy your choice to live a compassionate life.
