Vegan Key Lime Pie Recipe? (Soy-Free)
- losangeles May 19, 2012 09:57 PM
My husband is craving key lime pie and I'd like to make one for him.
I've searched around online & on Chowhound but can't find a soy-free recipe. (We're soy-intolerant so tofu is a no go.)
Does anyone have a tried-n-true recipe they'd like to share? Thanks in advance!
Looks good. You could also try modifying some of the raw cashew based cheesecake recipes out there. I am a big fan of raw cashew based desserts, even though I'm skeptical of raw food in general.
You might consider using real sugar instead of the ubiquitous agave (which is not really as great as some people make it out to be).
I've never made one myself, and I did suggest using a raw cheesecake recipe (for which there should be plenty of recipes on the net) as the basis.
A quick search (for "cashew key lime pie raw") suggests this recipe; I have not tested it myself:]
[the avocados sound like a weird addition, but could be good...
Here's another one to try, also from the first page of Google search results:
It is best to beg, borrow, or steal a high powered blender like a Vita-Mix when working with raw cashews, even well-soaked (you should soak them for quite a while before using); even a food processor may not have enough juice to make a really smooth cashew cream without straining; the Vita-Mix makes quick work of it.
