For the crust:

  • 1 cup raw unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 1/4 cup raw and unsalted cashew nuts
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 6 dates
  • dash of rock salt

For the filling:

  • 1 large avocado
  • juice from 3 key limes
  • 3 tbsp organic agave or honey
  • pinch of rock salt
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • sliced lime wedges for garnish


  • Crush the crust ingredients in a food processor until the "dough" sticks together well. Press the dough evenly into a standard, 9-inch pie plate, to create a crust.
  • Using a a blender, blend filling ingredients until completely smooth, adjusting sweetness to your liking.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared crust, spreading evenly. Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of three hours, or overnight, until firm.


You will not believe this wasn't made with a bunch of sugar and dairy, it's just as dreamy as your classic key lime pie!
