There has been an open bottle of key lime juice in my fridge for about six months. Perhaps a leeeetle longer. I found it while doing my annual clean out of the fridge and decided to try to make a Trim Healthy Mama recipe that caught my eye in their cookbook. I had family visiting and thought it might be something everyone would enjoy.
We did make the lime pie in the THM cookbook and honestly, didn’t particularly care for it. So off to the drawing board I went.
Much to my husband’s delight, I had to make this recipe a few times to get it exactly right. Now it’s perfect and would be a wonderful addition to your Easter feast. It will be a part of our Easter celebration for sure.
There are a few different parts to this recipe, so whereas it isn’t difficult, I would recommend that you read the whole recipe from start to finish before you begin cooking.
Since I started doing more cooking videos, both on YouTube and Facebook, I’ve really begun to appreciate how convenient it is to cook when all my tools and ingredients are laid out ahead of time. Of course, this is not the Food Network over here so I don’t have a staff getting everything ready for me, but even so, the cooking goes so much more smoothly when everything is ready. Plus, this process forces me to read a recipe fully before I start, which is always a good thing.
I really think you’re going to love this recipe. Paleo friends, I’m sorry, but this one just will not work if you cannot eat any dairy at all. I’m sure you could substitute a whole bunch of dairy free products, but those are less than pure and definitely not paleo. I have lots of other delicious desserts that are totally paleo and you can find them on the recipe index page linked along the top menu bar.
Honestly, I love this pie so much that we might just have it for Thanksgiving too! Who needs pumpkin pie?
