Raw No-Bake Key Lime Pie is Vegan, Gluten-Free and Delicious!

Are you looking for a dessert recipe that everyone can enjoy?  This raw no-bake key lime pie is perfect to serve for a party or bring to a potluck because it covers almost everyone’s diet including vegan, gluten free and paleo. It’s creamy, delicious and nutritious, so even those who are not on any kind of restrictive diet will totally enjoy it. I know I did! Besides, who doesn’t love key lime pie?

No-Bake Key Lime Pie Is Easy To Make

First of all, this tasty no-bake key lime pie is easy to make. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare. The crust is made of pecans, walnuts and medjool dates with accents of vanilla, cinnamon and himalayan pink sea salt in a food processor. You simply press the crust onto the bottom of a spring-form or regular pie pan.

The vegan part of this recipe is the use of avocado instead of any kind of dairy. Often key lime pies are made with sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks, but this is a dairy-free vegan key lime pie. The avocado gives the pie filling a velvety smooth texture and creaminess. And of course all the health benefits of avocado including nutrients, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.

For the key lime pie filling I recommend using ripe avocados to counteract the tartness of the limes. Using ripe limes will make it less tart, too. The filling also includes maple syrup to give it additional sweetness. So be sure to taste the filling when you are mixing it because you may want to adjust the amount of maple syrup to make the filling more or less sweet.

Then you simply pour the filing into the prepared crust. The hardest part is waiting for the pie to freeze and set for 2 hours! Garnish with fresh limes and keep it in the fridge until it is ready to serve. You can make this pie a day ahead so it is perfect to bring to a party or make in advance you are entertaining. And remember, this dessert is a crowd-pleaser because it is vegan, gluten free and paleo. It will be the hit of the party.
