already 2…..party and raw key-lime pie

Times flies…we had this Sunday a big child-party, my son had become 2….he got a lot of presents…When there is a bday-party in our house I like to let people taste of some vegan pies and “snacks”, so I am spending a lot of time in the kitchen, cooking, baking and also cleaning because when I am busy in the kitchen there is a war happening in the kitchen.
So also this Sunday, making pies in the morning, 3 home-made bread (and know we have some nice terracotta pot to put the bread in, so you get a different shape!) my boyfriend made some nice herb-butter.
It is funny how the taste of people are, some liked the brownies I made the other the raw key-lime pie. For me the brownies were ok, but the chocolate glaze on top made for me the special chocolate taste, on the key-lime pie I forgot the pistachios (unfortunately), but even-though it has a nice fresh taste and is healthy (so also nice for little kids, without poisoning them with too much sugar) no sugar, only nuts, dates, lemons and avocado
It’s not mine recipe I have it from internet many years ago, so I want to share first the key lime pie recipe and thanks to anonymous girl/boy from the internet

Ingredients raw key-lime pie (whole pie)

for the crust
1 cup of almonds
2 cups of walnuts
1 cup of dates
1/3 cup of raisins
2 tablespoons of orange juice

-for the filling
2 avocados
juice of 4 limes or 7 keylimes
zest of organic lime
1/2 cup of cashew nuts

-for the frosting
1/2 cup of almond milk/oat milk
1 cup macadamia nuts (I didn’t had this nuts, I used a mix of almonds and walnuts)
1/4 cup cashew nuts
2 vanilla beans scraped
7-10 dates

Garnish
I used lemon wedges and vanilla beans rest-overs and some blue berries
An d of course I forgot the pistachios but it’s really nice to put on top, or maybe some dried grated coconut

Kitchentools
a pie-spring 10 inch
a spatula
a mixing machine (magimix is perfect : ))
a fridge

So lets go and make the pie!

we start with the crust, just put all the ingredients in a machinery and process it till its crumbly and soft. Now this is ready to put in the bottom of the spring. Put this in the fridge and cool down. now begin with the filling

the filling is also easy to prepare and make, again put all the ingredients of the filling together in a blender, mix it till it’s creamy. Taste also the cream, if you like it put it on top of the crust with the spatula and again put the spring in the fridge
Of course you can experimentate with the taste maybe you like to put some dried coconut in it or more lime lets chill this for 1 hour

Almost the last action for making the pie ready, lets make the frosting. Again put all the ingredients in the blender and whip until smooth, (and he/she said in the recipe no lumps please ;))
Ready? put this on top of the pie, pipe or spoon this on top…now you can get creative…make the garnish and make the pie beautiful

Have a nice bday and enjoy the fresh pie
