Makes: 1 pie


  • 2 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1/8 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 pinch salt (generous)


  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 4 limes, zested and juiced
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. To make the crust, pulse all ingredients in a food processor until it forms a coarse meal and begins to come together. Press into a 9 inch tart or pie pan and refrigerate while you make the filling.
  2. To make the filling, blend the cashews, agave nectar and coconut oil in a food processor until smooth. Add the avocados, lime juice, lime zest and salt and blend until airy and smooth.
  3. Spoon the filling into the crust. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.
