I love May more than the summer months – everything that is blooming in the nature is so pretty and I want to freeze time and just be here and now. This is the first time our small cherry tree blossom with its pretty pink flowers. Of course I had to put some of the pretty pink cherry blossom next to my raw cake. ; )
Just look at that amazing sky – yesterday´s national holiday just could not have offered a nicer weather. I took a shot of my neighbors flag and I love the colors of the Swedish flag – blue as the sky and yellow as the sun.
Some of the ingredients used for my raw key lime pie.
Raw key lime pie with with passion fruit flavor
The other day I tried a raw key lime pie at a cafe and I loved it. This is my version that is slightly inspired of what I enjoyed there. Since I had raw passion fruit powder at home I decided to “spice it up” with this as well ; ) But that is naturally optional and tastes great without adding passion fruit flavor. Since this was a first attempt I only made a small cake (15 centimeter spring form pan), so if you want to make a larger cake go ahead and double all ingredients. I really loved this cake but I am also crazy about avocado and lime and not to mention nuts and figs… ha ha.. just a perfect combo for me in other words. I hope you will enjoy!
Makes about 6 pieces – read above for recommended spring form pan.
For the crust:
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 6-7 soft dried (organic) figs
Mix all ingredients in a mixer until it comes nicely together or you can press it together with your hands and it stays together. Press down the crust in your spring form pan. Use a baking paper to be able remove your cake nice and easy once it has set in the fridge.
For the filling:
- 1 cup cashew nuts soaked for 2-3 hours and thereafter rinsed in new fresh water
- 2 large avocados
- juice from two large lime fruit
- 2 tbs raw passion fruit powder (optional) and I think fresh passion fruit would be great too
- 1 tbs lucuma powder (optional)
- 5 tbs raw honey or substitute for other natural sweetener
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- Topping: for instance fresh raspberries (I loved this combo)
Mix all ingredients in a blender until you have a wonderful mousse consistency. Depending on your mixer/blender this will take a few minutes. Spread out the filling on top of the crust. Let sit in fridge – preferably over night. Top with for instance fresh raspberries.
