Creamy Key Lime Pie {Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo, Refined Sugar-Free}

Creamy Key Lime Pie {Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo, Refined Sugar-Free}

I was recently invited to partake in a virtual potluck for the 1 year anniversary of Ilene’s blog The Colorful Kitchen. Ilene is a health coach and has many gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free recipes on her blog — all things I dig, as you know :) , so it was easy to jump in and partake in the celebration.

I was pondering what kind of a dessert I would bring to a healthy vegan potluck and finally decided to share my recipe for a gluten-free vegan creamy key lime pie for the occasion, which happens to also be refined sugar-free and suited to a paleo diet.

Creamy Key Lime Pie {Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo, Refined Sugar-Free}

Key lime pie used to be one of my most favorite desserts, and sadly since it’s traditionally filled with a ton of sugar, dairy, eggs, and gluten, it was a dessert I thought I had to leave behind… When I recently made a refined sugar-free and vegan lemon curd, someone suggested in the comments using avocado in it as a substitute for silken tofu. Suddenly I had a beautiful vision of how I could make a healthful, nutritious, and delicious creamy key lime pie! Now that’s a dessert I’d absolutely LOVE to eat up at a potluck (and on any other occasion, really ;) ).
