This scrumptious pie can made in under 10 minutes. It will have you dreaming about summer and warm, sunny days. It is made of pure, nourishing ingredients. After serving it to my family this past weekend for dessert, everyone came back for seconds!
You’ll get a healthy dose of Vitamin C from the limes in this dish. Pecans provide magnesium, protein and zinc while dates are a good source of B Vitamins, dietary fiber and potassium. The addition of avocado adds a boost of Vitamin K and folate to the dish.
2 cups pecans
1/2 cup dates, soaked in water for 20 minutes
1 1/4 cup coconut milk (use the cream on top)
1 avocado, pitted and peeled
2/3 cup coconut sugar
juice of 4 limes (or 20 drops Lime essential oil)
zest of half an organic lime
2 Tbsp. agar powder
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt
Discard the water from the dates and remove the pits. Place dates and pecans in a food processor and pulse until completely chopped and mixed. Press the mixture into a pie dish. Next, combine all filling ingredients in to the food processor and mix together for several minutes. Slowly pour the filling on top of the crust. Decorate with shredded coconut and lime slices if desired. Place the pie in the refrigerator for 1 hour to chill prior to serving.
Cut into slices with a knife. Makes 6 servings.
