Got Limes?

Last weekend I went to Trader Joes in search of limes because I saw this amazing recipe online that looked delicious. It was a raw avocado and lime tart. But, when I arrived at Trader Joes I couldn’t find one lime. I asked the store clerk and he said he might have a few. He then brought me two ugly limes. Now, these limes might have tasted just fine, but I had a vision of beautiful, green limes and I needed at least 7 of them.  Fast forward to Tuesday or Wednesday one our students brought in a bag full of beautiful limes. They were calling me and I was super stoked to see them. So… I went to the store, picked up all the avocados I need and friday I started making  the beautiful raw tart.

I found this Recipe on Nutrition Stripped and followed it pretty closely. After eating I decided it could use a little more sweetener in the filling. Another friend said she thought the crust was a little too strong with the coconut. So… you be the judge.

 

Raw avocado lime tart.

What you’ll need
Crust:
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted
1/2 cup cashews, toasted
½ cup pitted dates
⅓ cup melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon lime zest
Pinch of sea salt

For the Filling:
5 avocados, pitted and skins removed
1 teaspoon lime zest
Juice from 6 limes
⅓ cup maple syrup
1 cup melted coconut oil
Pinch of sea salt
Garnish with lime zest or avocado
use a spring form pan or pie pan

What to do:
1. If using pie pan grease all sides and bottom with coconut oil
2. In a dry skillet toast the coconut, then pecans set aside- just until fragrant
3. In a food processor process all the crust ingredients until small particles. Then press into pan covering the entire bottom, then refrigerate until firm.
4. While crust is cooling combine all ingredients into food processor or blender until extremely smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness.
5. Pour the filling into the pie pan and smooth the top. Refrigerate pie at least two hours or overnight.

Serve cold, garnish as you like and use a hot sharp knife to cut.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Its full of all kinds of good fat. I would love to hear about it when you make it.
