Paleo Key Lime Pie

I saw a version of this pie on that evil site that makes us all feel completely inadequate because we lack the creativity and time of those who post pictures of their beautiful works of art and say it took them 10 minutes to create, yet when you try to recreate it you spend an hour and it looks nothing like what they made Pinterest.  I changed it up a bit to make it Paleo and it was a hit with the fam.  Consistency is somewhat like a cheesecake, but yummy lime flavor.

Paleo Key Lime Pie


Filling -
6 avocados
6 TBSP honey
1 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup lime juice

Crust - 
1 1/2 cups almond flour/meal
1/2 cup dates
2 TBSP almond butter
2 TBSP honey
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut, shredded
1/4 cup coconut flour


Place all crust ingredients in food processor and pulse until grainy.  It should stick together when you press on it, but not form a ball by itself.  If it does, add more almond flour.

Dump blended ingredients into spring form pan and press down to form crust.

Wipe out food processor and place all filling ingredients within.  Blend for several minutes (4-5) until completely smooth.  

Pour over crust and smooth out.

Place pie in freezer for 1-2 hours.  Serve chilled.
