EASY NO-BAKE KEY LIME PIE (LOW CARB, GLUTEN-FREE)

This creamy, refreshing key lime pie recipe requires only 7 ingredients, 10 minutes of prep time, and no baking at all. Low carb, gluten-free, and sugar-free.
INGREDIENTS
Crust
Filling
  • 2 medium Avocados (very ripe)
  • 12 oz Cream cheese (softened at room temperature or by heating)
  • 4 small Limes
  • 1 cup Erythritol *
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Line the bottom of a pie pan with parchment paper (optional, but makes it easier to remove the slices later).
  2. To make the crust, stir together the almond flour, coconut oil, and erythritol. Press the crust into the pie pan. Set aside.
  3. Place the avocado (skin removed), softened cream cheese, erythritol, and vanilla extract into a high power blender or a food processor.
  4. Zest the limes using a zester and add the zest to the blender. Squeeze the juice out of all the limes in there as well. Puree the mixture until smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula.
  5. Pour/spoon the pureed mixture into the crust. Smooth with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
  6. Refrigerate for at least two hours, until the pie is firm. Serve with homemade sugar-free whipped cream if desired. Keep refrigerated.
NOTES
