Heart Healthy Key Lime Pie

Well ok mine doesn't look like the one on the Steven and Chris Website, but I made it because I really approve of all the ingredients (plus I had them all).  In the next couple of days my diet is going to be restricted again, my tri-weekly reboot, part cleanse, part diet, part rebooting my palate.  I don't dread the two week process, not at all, I know I'll lose some excess weight, I'll feel amazing, and most of all I'll re-train my taste buds to what real (sugar free, un-processed food, salt-free) food really tastes like.  Sooo anyway here are my pictures to the recipe. 

1 cup raisins
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
3 tbs cocoa powder
2 tbs hemp seeds
 As you can see I didn't have the fancy shmancy pie molds that they had on the S&C show, but improvised.  I combined all these ingredients in my food processor (I took about 5ish minutes to really break down the ingredients), it looked crummy but when I pressed it together it held, so I assumed it was right!

1/4 cup key lime or lime juice, freshly squeezed
 I used 2 limes to make this.  Which is probably why it tastes fantastic.  Ummm real lime!!!!  but I don't actually have a "reamer" so I did it with a fork.
1 cup pecans ,1 avocado
1/4 cup key lime or lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 tbs extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup agave nectar
 I just added these ingredients to my food processor and let it whirl away for a good long time.  The brown flakes were clearly from the pecans (I have no idea how theirs looks so good) and my avodado was really ripe so I think that is why the green colour isn't as vivid.  But let me tell you the taste makes up for it!!!

 I ended up with 6 tarts!
It might not look delicious, but do not be fooled!!! This is amazing.  It is creamy and the fresh lime just bursts in your mouth.  And OMG I feel so good about all the ingredients. 


  1. I just made this, too. I had way too much filling and very little crust. I wonder: is the pecan meant to be part of the crust, maybe?

  2. There definitely was way more pie filling, but I think that's how a normal pie would be? The texture of the filling was right, so I wouldn't take any way, but I think you could double the recipe for the crust! Wasn't it good though???

  3. Yeah, I really liked the crust. And I like the idea of rolling bits of it in coconut for a macaroon-like treat. Definitely a keeper!
