Mango Key Lime Pie

Standard

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.

INGREDIENTS

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)

RECIPE

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.

Enjoy!

Standard

Baked chicken is my go to for those evenings when a movie or a good book call my name. Like tonight! Other than a few minutes of preparation time, baked chicken takes care of itself in the oven while you enjoy life.

The great thing is, quick dishes don’t need to mean boring dishes, and this Tropical Chicken Wing recipe is one of those that will have guests think you spent hours in the kitchen. It’ll be our little secret!

INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon coconut oil, for greasing
3/4 pound organic chicken wings
1/2 mango, sliced into thin strips
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika spice
1/2 tablespoon garlic
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil or grass-fed butter, melted
Oregano spice, for a finishing touch

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 450 degree F.
Grease a baking dish with one teaspoon coconut oil.
Place the chicken wings in the dish and sprinkle with the paprika spice.
Add the mango strips to the dish, placing them at random between the chicken wings.

Tropical Chicken Wings Preparation
Place the dish in the oven to bake for 20 minutes.
During those 20 minutes, prepare the garlic glaze by mixing a 1/2 tablespoon of paprika spice, the garlic and a 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil or grass-fed butter in a small bowl.
Remove the chicken dish from the oven and coat the wings with the spicy garlic glaze.
Place the dish back in the oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until the chicken is well done.

It’s almost like dining in the tropics while getting your nutrients and omega-3!
