So creamy and sweet with tangy lime with bits strawberry throughout. You would never know there is an entire ZUCCHINI hiding in this pretty pie.

And the crust is my go-to favorite for creamy pies and vegan cheesecakes.

It’s almonds, dates and coconut with  a touch of pink salt and vanilla beans. LOVE. A little salty and chewy. Mmmm.

I added coriander to this crust because I think the flavor pairs really well with lime, but it’s totally optional.

Pretty is so much more than the outside. It’s what you’re made of. Use beautiful real-food ingredients, and your pies will be oh so pretty!

    This pie is delicious! I made it for Mother’s Day to take to my daughter’s. It was a hit and no one knew there was avocado and zucchini in. I only had a 8 1/2/” springform pan so I increased the recipe by 1/2 and it was perfect. Thanks Emily for a great pie recipe. I will definitely be checking out your other pies.
