Key Lime Pie #lchf #sugarfree

So lovely, refreshing and tasty.  Traditionally this would have a biscuit base, but I have swapped this for a lovely nutty base and removed condensed milk for a more natural, filling, with added avocado for more essential fatty acids.  I don’t think this needs any sweetener.

Top Tip:  To get the most juice out of your lime, press down roll on the table with your hands for a few minutes.

 

200g ground nuts, (I use pecan, walnut, almond, brazil, hazelnut and ground in the food processor)

50g butter

 

2 ripe avocados, mashed

4 limes, zest and juice

1 lemon zest and juice

180g cream cheese

300g extra thick double cream

1 tsp gelatine powder (mixed with 75ml water)

 

  • Ground the nuts in a processor to give you 150g of ground nuts (any of your choice)

  • Place these in a bowl and add the melted butter.  Combine well.

  • Place into your greased or lined flan dish.  Use your fingers and press down evenly.  If you can, go around the edges to form raised sides

  • Once flat and even, pop into the fridge to help set.

  • Place all the filling ingredients into a bowl and whisk with your food mixer until evenly combined.

  • Pour onto your nut base and smooth.

  • Place back into the fridge and leave to set (around 2 hours).

  • You can decorate with whipped cream and slices of lime.
