Key Lime Pie, Remix!

Say hello to my NEW lime PIE! This is a remake of one of my FAVORITE pies of all time and one of the most popular recipes on Pretty Pies…. my KEY LIME PIE.

That’s one of the recipes I make over and over again, take to parties and serve to friends. It’s such a classic!

But now it got a special LOW CARB makeover, plus a flavorful twist! And I’m so EXCITED!!

Easy Method

There’s nothing complicated about this recipe. It’s easy and foolproof!

No baking. No ice baths. No gelatin.

Mix and chill.

You’ll need a food processor to make this recipe. I recommend this one.

To make the crust, pulse together the ingredients (almonds, coconut oil and sweetener) then press into a 7″ springform pan. (This makes it tall and pretty. If you use a standard pan, I would double the recipe.)

To make the filling, blend the ingredients in a food processor, starting with avocado then adding the remaining liquids then oil at the end. The coconut oil helps solidify the filling so you don’t have to bake it to set.

I always recommend tasting your filling and adjusting to your preference. Sometimes it needs a little more sweetener or a little more salt.

Low-Carb Alternative to Maple Syrup

For a while I’ve been experimenting with replacing the maple syrup in recipes with canned coconut milk and stevia to cut my sugar intake. And it has worked amazingly well.

Especially for tangy flavors like LIME. The lime flavor compliments the taste of the stevia so much. You may not notice the stevia at all — just the delicious flavors.

Update: I discovered sugar free syrups that work as a 1:1 replacement to pure maple syrup!

Lakanto and Besti both have these syrups – that I think are technically marketed as coffee syrups! – but I use them in everything, ha! Especially cake.

Lakanto makes sugar-free maple syrup, too but the maple flavor may come through too much. I would stick with vanilla or classic.

Avocado… in Desserts!

I’ll never give up my AVOCADOS. They go with everything. Their smooth, silky texture and natural richness makes the BEST cream pies!

Not to mention they’re SO good for you! High in fiber and healthy fats plus more potassium than bananas! DESSERTS WITH BENEFITS 😉

I use medium size avocados in my recipes. I buy from Aldi where they are all about the same size (that fits in the palm of your hand) and they are less expensive.

Does it turn BROWN with Avocado in it?

Nope.

Lime juice is a natural preservative to keep it fresh.

Over time, the color will become less vibrant, but it definitely does not turn gross and brown like an overripe avocado or old guacamole lol.

Goodbye, Dates. A Sugar-Free Alternative

To remake my Key Lime Pie without added sugar, I also had to redo the CRUST. And that means no more medjool dates (tear). I really love dates, but unfortunately they’re not low-carb.

BUT all hope is not lost. I made a crust that I REALLY love. Dare I say.. even more??

It’s still made with almonds (yay!), but instead of dates, I used coconut oil and stevia to add sweetness and stability.

The Easy No-Bake Crust

It’s now even MORE of a fine crumb crust. It reminds me of those GRAHAM CRACKER crumb crusts from traditional cheesecakes. Light and sweet with all those delicious tiny bits. Crazy good!

And still SO simple and easy to make in a food processor. The whole pie can be made in under 15 minutes. Then pop it in the freezer for a few hours to set up.

Hello, Easy Blueberry Compote!

I had no idea a compote would be so EASY! Don’t let it intimidate you if you’ve never made one.

Simply cook down a handful of blueberries with a splash of lime for about 5 minutes. This concentrates and enhances the flavor and sweetness.

AND makes this gorgeous deep purple color that’s SO pretty against the soft green of the pie.

How to Store

Keep this pie refrigerated for up to 5 days, although its best freshness is within 1-2 days.

Freezing is not recommended due to the change in the texture of the compote.

Who’s ready for some luscious lime pie? This may be my new go-to pie! (Especially when avocados go on sale for 29 CENTS at Aldi! Woot!)
