No-Bake Key Lime Pie

keylimepie3

I have seen multiple websites with recipes to a raw or no bake key lime pie. Since I had two avocados that needed to be eaten up, limes in the fridge and dates and nuts on hand I thought it was the perfect time to make this healthy dessert.  And I was happy I did. Although the crust didn’t come out like I’d hoped for (I soaked my dates too long and the crust was a bit too soft), the taste was still great. Keeping it a little longer in the freezer helped make the crust hard enough for me to get a piece out without having to spoon it out in a huge mess. I  was very impressed by the filling of this pie, the avocados blended with maple syrup and lime was a perfect combination. I could imagine eating it alone for a super quick treat.
