Raw Key Lime Pie?


Aw, hell yeah, raw key lime pie!

I just freestyled a raw key lime pudding and it came out so good, I had to write about it.  Here is what I put in my Vita-Mix:

  • Coconut water from one freshly-opened young coconut
  • Coconut flesh from two young coconuts
  • Juice from 4 limes (roll them — hard — on a counter before cutting to make more juice come out)
  • Zest from 2 limes
  • (Approx.) 1 cup of raw cashews, soaked for an hour prior, drained
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 fresh medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup of pre-blended Irish moss

I blended it until it was ridiculously smooth and then I put it in wine glasses, you know, just to be sexy.  That’s how I roll.

It is far, far less sweet than a key lime pie would be (for that level of sweetness, I would probably triple or quadruple the number of dates, or just use a cup of agave or something).  It’s very tangy and smooth.  A mint leaf garnish would be nice, or perhaps a single raspberry or very perfect small strawberry.

    I mentioned the key lime pie available at Lifethyme. Something happened between last year and this year that somehow made the key lime pie there sub-par. I no longer recommend it. It used to be firm, with a natural lime taste and have a subtle sweetness — the one I just got from there (May 2010) was runny, loose, far too sweet, far too tart and the lime taste seemed artificial to me.
