Key Lime Tart

Updated: Jul 7, 2023

This Key Lime Tart is a healthy and refreshing summertime dessert recipe I created several years ago that is bursting with lime flavor. The filling is made from avocados which gives this tart a brilliant green hue and a creamy texture. The crust is a no-bake crust and the addition of shredded coconut creates a slightly tropical taste. Even though this tart is raw, gluten free, grain free, sugar free and lactose free, it is sure to not disappoint. It can easily be made vegan by substituting maple syrup for the honey.

I used a spring form pan with removable sides to make it easy to remove, however, a traditional round pie pan can also be used and it will still turn out great. This tart is a frozen summer treat and will need to thaw for 15-20 minutes before serving. The crust and filling will start to become soft once out of the freezer, so make sure to re-freeze any leftovers quickly.

Ingredients for the crust:

1 cup of pecans

1 cup cashews

16 pitted dates

1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1 tbsp coconut oil melted

1 tsp lime zest

Pinch of salt

Ingredients for the filling:

4 ripe avocados

1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice

1/3 cup honey

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp lime zest


1. Place all ingredients for the crust in a food processor and pulse into fully ground up.

2. Press the crust mixture evenly into a round pie dish and freeze for 20 minutes.

3. While crust is freezing, make the filling by placing all ingredients in a blender and blend until a smooth creamy mixture forms.

4. Pour the filling mixture over the crust and place back in the freezer for several hours or until set.

5. Let thaw for 15-20 minutes before serving.
