This healthy and delicious Vegan Key Lime Pie is quick and easy to make! Coconut milk, agar, and cashews work together to create a light, rich, and creamy texture! The perfect dessert to refresh your palate!
Add cashews, lime juice, canned coconut cream (you can also use full fat canned coconut milk), spinach leaves, agave, lemon extract, vanilla extract, and salt to blender. Blend until smooth.
In a small saucepan whisk ⅓ cup cold water and 4 teaspoons of Agar powder. Cook over medium heat while whisking constantly for several minutes until agar mixture thickens and turns clear. It will be VERY thick.
Use a spatula to scrape activated agar into blender, adding to the rest of the pie filling ingredients. Blend everything together until smooth and frothy.
Pour the key lime pie filling into a large prepared crust and place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours!
Garnish with lime zest, vegan whipped cream, lime slices and serve!
HOW LONG WILL VEGAN KEY LIME PIE KEEP?
You can keep this vegan key lime pie in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. I haven’t tried freezing it yet, so let me know in the comments if you try that and how it goes!The pie will tend to soften a bit at room temperature so keep it chilled to keep it sliceable.
MORE ABOUT AGAR POWDER:
Maybe you’ve used Agar a bunch or maybe it’s your first time. It’s a vegan substitute for gelatin and Agar powder can be used to replace gelatin in a 1:1 ratio for most recipes.Agar flakes work similarly to Agar powder but aren’t as concentrated. In case that’s what you’ve got on hand here’s the replacement ratio: 1 tsp of powdered agar = 1 tbsp agar flakes.If you’re interested in learning more about Agar, check out this article by On Green Planet.
