Key Lime Pie

Yesterday we went to visit some friends for afternoon tea.
My friend is a chef and used to own her own catering business.
She stopped this when she had children and now writes for food magazines.
She is always so excited when people bring her food to try.
But by the same token I am always nervous as she is such a good cook.

I made a lovely raw food Key Lime Pie
which Mr O thinks is the nicest thing I have ever made.
Luckily my friend and her family liked it to.

Key Lime Pie


1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup walnuts
¼ tsp salt
6 medjool dates

I have added 1 TBS of cacao as well to dampen down the sweetness and also a nice
contrast to the lime

Process the coconut, walnuts and salt until finely ground, then add the dates and cacao if
you are using it and process until it all sticks together.


1 ½ cups avocado
¾ cup lime juice
¾ cup honey
1/8 tsp salt
½ cup coconut oil
2 TBS lecithin powder

Blend avocado, lime juice, honey and salt. Add coconut oil and lecithin and blend some

Pour over your base and set in the fridge or freezer.

You can top with fresh raspberries or raspberry coulis (blend frozen raspberries with

My friend had made a lovely Lemon and Lime cake so they complemented each other perfectly.
Nothing like being with good friends eating good food.

Talking about good friends and Lime things.
Some new Pixies joined us this week.
