Eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to ditch the treats.
This amazing key lime pie is vegan, gluten free, dairy free and is loaded with vitamins. It tastes amazing and nourishes not only your palette but your soul.
1 3/4 cups of almonds
17 medjool dates, pitted
2 tablespoon of coconut oil
Herbal powder: 1/2 tbsp of ashwagandha powder
5 ripe avocados (you don’t want them to be brown on the inside)- larger size if possible. If using smaller size you may need 6-7.
juice of 3 limes
1 cup of maple syrup
4 tablespoons of coconut cream
Herb powder of choice-
Siberian ginseng 1tbsp –
For your herbal or super food powder you can add whatever you like. For this purpose I used adaptogen herbs (herbs that help your body deal with stress). You can also emit this if you do not want to add any herbs to it.
For the topping you can sprinkle the limes zest on the top, goji berries or edible flowers. Get creative! 🙂
Start with the base ingredients.
- Put the almonds and herbal powder in a food processor and blend until they become small pieces. Then add the dates and blend again, until they are well blended and sticky.
- Put the base into a round cake pan. About the size of 8-10 inches. Put the base evenly and firmly down so that is is firm and a solid base. Set aside.
For the filling:
- Empty the avacadoes without the pits into the food processor. All the lime juice, maple syrup, coconut cream, herbal powder and blend. Blend it until everything looks a lime green and there is no solid pieces.
- Put the filling onto the base.
Put the pie into the freezer to set for an hour or so. You want it to be firm but not frozen completely.
Add the toppings you wish to add.
For eating Ayurvedically:
It is best to eat this pie when it isn’t frozen to keep your digestive (Agni) fire strong. Also advised to eat it midday when your digestion is strongest . If your Kapha dosha is high it is best to avoid this pie for the time being until you are more in balance. This recipe is more suited for Pitta and Vata types. For Vata, soaking the almonds/dates beforehand can be of benefit.
