Key Lime Pie the Paleo Way

I don’t believe that there were pies in the Paleolithic age, but it’s hard to imagine any reasonable caveman (or cavewoman) turning down this rendition of the classic dessert.  So pucker-up and get ready for a tarty explosion in your palate.

For crust
  1. 2 tablespoons (30 g) coconut butter
  2. 6 medjool dates
  3. 1 cup (110 g) toasted almond slices
  4. 1/2 cup (40 g) unsweetened coconut flakes
  5. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. Pinch of salt
For Filling
  1. 2 ripe avocados
  2. 1/2 cup (120 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice
  3. 1/3 cup (80 ml) maple syrup
  4. 1 to 2 tablespoons (8 to 16 g) coconut flour
  5. 2 cans (14 ounces, or 425 ml, each) full-fat coconut milk, chilled
  1. To make the Crust: melt the coconut butter in a skillet over low heat, being careful not to let it burn.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the dates for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add the almond slices and coconut flakes and process again for 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add the melted coconut butter, vanilla, and salt and process until sticky and crumbly.
  5. Press the crust into a pie dish and refrigerate.
To make the Filling
  1. Peel the avocados and place in a food processor together with the lime juice, maple syrup, and coconut flour. Process until smooth and thick.
  2. Carefully remove the coconut milk from the refrigerator and scoop out the cream at the top. Beat the cream in a bowl until it reaches the consistency of whipped cream.
  3. Fold the avocado mixture into the coconut cream and continue to beat until well incorporated.
  4. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust and place in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours, or until the center is firm.
  5. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for another 2 hours before serving.

  1. Thanks for the recipe Going to give the lime pie a try 🙂 sounds like it will be delicious , hopefully my cooking will do it justice 🙂

  2. I have a lot of food intolerances so I’m always looking out for new recipes to try. Paleo is growing on me lately as I find these meals and treats to be not only healthy alternatives but taste still rules.

    I think most would love to eat healthy but don’t want to feel like they are eating grass or cardboard. Paleo seems to have changed that.

    Great contribution, thanks for the share.

    • Ty,

      Thanks for the visit and for taking the time to comment! Your comments are dead on accurate regarding how most people think healthy eating taste….I hope this site will help to dispute that claim.

      Thanks again!
