Pies are such a great treat but when you’re trying to make them paleo and cut out any refined sugars and processed additives it can seem impossible feat. Thankfully paleo pies are often easier to make than normal pies.
Key lime pies have always been a favorite of mine and when I decided to make my own paleo version I wanted to spice it up a little. I had mangos sitting around my house and thought, wouldn’t that be delicious. It was delicious and I’m happy I get to share it with you, here’s an easy recipe for mango, key lime pie.
1 cup mango puree (roughly 1 ½ mangos blended in your food processor)
1/2 cup of blended avocado (ripe avocados work the best, it is roughly 1 avocado blended in your food processor until you have a creamy, smooth mixture)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed key lime juice
3 tablespoons coconut sugar
3/4 cup coconut milk (scoop out the cream at the top of the can first then add the remaining liquid until you reach 3/4 cup)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
rind 2 key limes, grated
2 teaspoons tapioca flour
gelatin eggs (1.5 tablespoon gelatin + 1/4 cup hot water)
1 pie crust (goes great with our coconut pie crust)
Mix all ingredients together in food processor, except gelatin eggs; until thoroughly combined.
Pour mixture into saucepan and heat over low heat for 10 minutes. You’ll see a bubble escape here or there, it should not be bubbling regularly.
In a bowl whisk together 1/4 cup warm water and 1.5 tablespoon gelatin until slightly frothy (sprinkle gelatin over water slowly when whisking).
Pour both mixtures back into processor and pulse until thoroughly combined.
Pour into pie crust, let cool and stick in fridge to set. This will take roughly 3 – 4 hours.
Slice and serve!
There are a lot of ingredients in this pie but it’s nutrition packed. Not to mention that it doesn’t take long to prepare at all, at the most you’re looking at roughly 30 – 40 minutes to prepare your pie. Then all you need to do is let it cool; it’s the best part about a no bake pie.
