Raw Key Lime Pie

We were in Montreal this week for a family wedding, and after it was all over it felt like we had pretty much eaten non-stop for 36 hours.  Feeling that we needed to get back on track instantly, we went for a grueling morning run to Mont Royal and then up and down, up, down, up, and down the staircase of death that is the Mont Royal Staircase.

Starving and barely able to walk, we were so excited to try out Montreal’s raw food restaurant: Crudessence.  Once there, we were bitten by the raw food bug once again.  When we got home I dug out my dusty raw food word docs and pulled out this gem!  Here is a recipe that I initially wrote 8 YEARS ago, back when I discovered raw food, David Wolfe, and was attending the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition!


Raw Key Lime Pie


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Place walnuts and pecans in food processor and pulse until nuts start to stick together.  Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until well combined.  Press into the bottom of a tart pan and refrigerate while you make the filling.


  • 2 cups cashews
  • 1 cup coconut cream (the solid mass in one can of coconut milk)
  • 2/3 cup fresh key lime juice (or regular lime juice)
  • 1/3 cup local honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.

Pour into your tart shell and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
