There’s nothing quite like lime and coconut to me (“You put the lime in the coconut…”) to create instant summer, beachy vibes. Add some creamy cashews, freeze, and you’ll have a delicious, ridiculously tasty and refreshing dessert with a minimum of effort. If you use a raw crust, you can also avoid heating up your kitchen. It tastes a little like an ice cream pie! Feel free to substitute lemons for a lemonade version or Key limes when they are in season.
1 9-inch vegan pie crust, homemade or purchased, baked 1½ cups raw, unsalted cashews, soaked for 1 hour, then drained 1½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk ⅓ cup fresh lime juice ⅓ cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ½ teaspoon coconut extract (optional) Candied limes, vegan whipped topping (optional)
Blend together everything but the pie crust (heh) until smooth and creamy. Pour the contents into your pie crust and freeze for two hours or longer. Before serving, allow to defrost for 30 minutes, slice with a sharp knife and serve cold.
