Raw Key Lime Pie

Crust

3 cups almond flour*

1/4 cup fresh medjool or barhi dates

2 Tablespoons coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt, finely ground

1.   To make crust, place almond flour, dates, coconut oil, vanilla and Celtic sea salt into a food processor and blend until it balls up. Firmly press crust into pie pan and set aside.

*Almond Flour is made when you grind almonds for making almond milk. After the grinding process, strain the pulp through an almond milk bag or cheesecloth as much as possible and dry it in your dehydrator. Once dry, put it in a Vita-Mix and use the slow speed to slowly make flour. It is kept best in the freezer in an air-tight bag or container.

1/2 cup agave nectar

1/3 cup, coconut milk

1  1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon Celtic sea salt

1 Tablespoon lecithin

Add the lecithin and coconut oil with the blender going on slow speed and then raise the speed until the lecithin and coconut oil are blended.
