Key Lime Pie (Raw)

What you need: 

Filling:
2 avocados
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons agave or other sweetener Crust:
1/2 cup almond pulp/flour
1/2 cup dates (not soaked)
pinch salt
pinch cayenne (or nutmeg)

What you do: 

1. Lightly oil a muffin tin (springform could work if you doubled the recipe). Blend the filling ingredients until smooth.
2. In processor, combine crust ingredients until fairly smooth, no big chunks of dates.
3. Press crust into prepared muffin tin. Spoon in filling.
4. Freeze 1-2 hours. 3-4 hours gets it hard like ice cream cake. If that happens, set out for 5 minutes before eating.
I can't usually make raw dessert recipes because of all the nuts/complication/special ingredients, but this is pretty easy and I've subbed the lime for many different fruits.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I have a tiny issue with the coconut oil. The amount in the recipe was waaay too much coconut oil and the taste was just  bitter and coconutty.  Not very key-lime-ish.. 
Next time i will double the lime and decrease the coconut by half.

Like others I used way less coconut oil and doubled the amount of lime.  I doubled the whole recipe and made a regular sized pie.  This came out beautifully and I had no trouble scooping it out with it holding shape.  Who knew avocado and lime could go so well together?  The pie was delicious!

I practically doubled the lime juice and added the zest as well. Used maple syrup as the sweetener and less coconut oil than called for. Didn't get to freeze for very long so they stuck to the mini muffin tin which is non-stick and was greased with extra coconut oil. Blended the heck out of the filling and it was super creamy. Definitely press some plastic wrap directly on the surface as my filling did oxidize a bit on top. Despite little technical difficulties this is a great base recipe and my boyfriend's family loved them. Thanks so much!
