Sweet as regular pie but with a vegan and GF twist. We teamed up with Nikki Elisheva of My Sweet Belly to share her recipe for no-bake key lime pie. The summer dessert is sure to be a hit at your next social-distanced picnic or backyard get-together.
“Most pies have little to no nutritional value. This no-bake option is the opposite; it’s nutrient-dense and one of my most popular recipes. It should still be treated as a dessert because it has natural sugars. However, the whole food ingredients in the mix give nutrients your body wouldn’t normally get from a traditional or store-bought pie (which are mostly made of sugars and processed ingredients),” Nikki shares. Learn the step-by-step instructions for the mouth-watering dessert below.
