Walnut Pie Crust Ingredients: 

Filling Ingredients:

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 can coconut cream, chilled

  • 12 ounces fresh raspberries

  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup

 

Directions:  

Soak cashews in water for at least 3 hours or overnight and drain before using.

Combine all Walnut Pie Crust ingredients in a food processor and process until mealy. Grease an 8x11 glass baking dish generously with coconut oil. Firmly press the pie crust into the pan with your fingers until a smooth crust begins to form. Chill for 20 minutes.

In a high-powered blender, add cashews, lime zest, lime oil, maple syrup, lime juice and a pinch of salt. Blend until creamy and smooth (sour cream consistency or a bit thicker). Spread over the crust and place in freezer for 1 hour.

For topping place coconut cream, raspberries, and maple syrup into a blender. Whip until smooth and creamy. Top lime layer with the raspberry layer and freeze at least 30-60 minutes. Thaw to desired consistency before serving.  Any leftovers should be kept frozen or refrigerated.
