Citrus lovers rejoice! A raw, vegan, and gluten-free pie that is definitely not short on that citrusy sweet-tart flavor you love. Use lemons or limes, or a combination of both; whatever suits your fancy!

Ingredients

Crust
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour or almonds
  • 3-4 Tbsp water, as needed
Filling
  • 2 cups soaked raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup coconut butter , melted
  • Juice from 4 limes (or lemons)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (room temperature) water
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 6 stevia drops or 2 extra Tbsp liquid sweetener

Instructions

  1. Start by soaking the nuts for 5-6 hours.
  2. Prepare the crust by processing the dates, coconut and coconut flour in your food processor or vitamix. Add the water as needed, until you have a sticky consistency. Transfer mixture to a cheesecake pan or mini cheesecake molds like I did. Leave in the freezer and continue with the filling.
  3. Blend the cashews, melted coconut butter, maple syrup, lemon juice, water, vanilla and stevia drops until you have a very creamy consistency. Transfer the mixture to cheesecake pan and freeze for at least 10 hours.
  4. Once ready, leave outside the freezer for 5 minutes and remove from pan while frozen.
  5. Top with fresh berries or lemon zest.

Notes

This holds really well if left in the fridge but you can also put it back on the freezer if desired.  
About Priscilla Soler

My name is Priscilla and I'm half Mexican and half Canadian. I live in Montreal where I go to college. My vegan path started  3 years ago, after suffering of an eating disorder. I believe God has healed me and my life changed completely. By changing my eating habits and appreciating not just myself but everything around me, I finally saw how beautiful, unique and special life is. After 2 years of following a raw vegan lifestyle, I read the China Study AND tHE 80/10/10 diet and started eating a low fat mostly raw diet. It's been a year and I never felt better! I have so much energy and the benefits are beyond. I created my blog a few months after I changed my diet to low fat, so pretty much all my recipes are free of oils, nuts, seeds or gourmet ingredients like agave and cacao. I think these are super healthy and tasty recipes that focus on what a real raw food diet should look like, the natural whole state of each and every food, without adding tons of refined ingredients. To know more about me you can go to my website: www.gastrawnomica.com where I share my recipes and a little bit about my life.
