Key Lime Pie Vegan Recipe August 2023 Update
It’s funny the first time I wrote this recipe I was living in Casablanca Morocco. I think it was during COVID. I’ve always loved lemony flavors and when I saw this recipe I was like “I need this in my life”. This vegan / sugar free version was delicious and I loved it. The funny part of the story is that few years later, here I am, living in Miami! I am literally living few hours drives away from Key West, where Key Lime Pie was born!! Isn’t it crazy?
Is the best Key Lime Pie in Key West ?
I went to key west and I tried the key lime that was featured as Top key lime in Key west and honestly I was a bit disappointed :(. My favorite key lime is the one I found in Miami actually. They have the cutest little shop in Coconut Groove (literally long the road). There is also a key lime pie vending machine at Julia & Henry’s haha. Yes you’re in Florida! That was my fun story with the key lime pie. And now the recipe.
Key Lime Pie Vegan Recipe: Mini Bites, Tarts, and Muffin Tin Delights
Key lime pie is a classic recipe in the United States, originating from the Key region of Florida. Traditionally, key lime pie is made with egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, and lime juice, which gives the pie its name.
Now, we’re bringing you a 100% vegan twist on this beloved dessert – Key Lime Pie 100% vegan, 100% delightful!
Ingredients for Vegan Key Lime Pie:
The base of the vegan key lime pie is a crushed biscuit that we’ll butter to create a compact texture during baking. I recommend using digestive biscuits, which are not overly sweet, but you can choose your preferred type of biscuit.
Cashews are rich in healthy fats, vitamin K, magnesium, and phosphorus. For this recipe, opt for unsalted cashews. Make sure to check the label for the “unsalted” indication, as cashews are commonly enjoyed as salted snacks.
For this recipe, soak the cashews in water the night before or in the morning for the afternoon preparation. This step is crucial to achieve a smooth consistency for the filling.
I’ve used a special ingredient for this recipe – coconut cream. Please note that this is not coconut oil or coconut milk, but a liquid cream. It often contains sugar, so try to choose a variety with the least amount of added sugar.
Key limes will bring a tangy flavor to the recipe. If using zest, opt for organic key limes.
