Vegan Mini Key Lime Pies

Cook Time: 8 minutes

This is a very simple recipe; especially made for my husband's birthday. It was such a hit!

Ingredients:

For the crust

For the filling

For the whipped cream

  • 1 cup organic heavy coconut cream (refrigerated overnight)
  • 2 tablespoons organic powdered sugar
  • zest from 3-4 organic key limes *optional for topping

 

Directions

  1. Place all of the crust ingredients into a food processor and process until they are mixed completely.
  2. Press the mixture down with your fingertips into a 12 cupcake silicone pan to form the crust.
  3. Chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Bake on the middle rack for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to the freezer.
  6. To make the filling, blend the ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is completely smooth.
  7. Spoon filling into the crusts in the cupcake pan. Tap to let the mixture settle.
  8. Freeze for about 2 hours before serving. (Prepare the whipped cream while they’re in the freezer)
  9. To make the whipped cream, scoop the coconut cream and discard the liquid.
  10. Pour the cream into a chilled bowl and add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
  11. Using an electric hand mixer or balloon whisk, beat the cream to a firm consistency until stiff peaks form.
  12. Push the bottom of each pie and pop them out.
  13. Defrost your pies about 5 minutes before serving and top with whipped cream.
  14. Sprinkle with key lime zest.

Enjoy!

 

Notes

This recipe will yield 12 mini key lime pies.

I topped half with whipped cream and zest; the rest with blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. I dusted the berries with a little organic powdered sugar (hold a sifter or strainer over the berries and sift the powdered sugar over them).
