Key Lime Pie in Keto Form
Key lime pie is known as one of the most decadent desserts ever. From the light richness, to the velvety soft texture and crumbly crust — it’s really hard to hate on any aspect of key lime pie. Yet, as good as it sounds, this classic dessert might not fit with your diet, especially if you’re following non-dairy or keto meal plans. Luckily, we created a simple, plant-based recipe for key lime pie fat bombs with only 4 grams net carbs per serving, that will help deliver the sweet serenity of classic key lime pie, without the hassle of counting calories or taking countless hours of preparation.
We start our prep by zesting a few key limes, and then juice them once the zest is removed. You’ll need ½ tbsp zest, and juice should yield 1 tbsp. Key limes can be hard to find, so you can substitute with regular limes. The most labor intensive part of this recipe is most likely the zesting process. Once complete, combine the zest and juice in a food processor with delicious whole ingredients like cashews, walnuts, coconut butter, and a variety of seeds for an easy and quick vegan snack.
At the core of this key lime pie fat bombs recipe is fiber, which comes from chia seeds, hemp and flax meal. While fiber has great digestive benefits, the combination of these three seeds provide additional health benefits that work together, creating a real nutritional robustness in this simple, vegan recipe.
Chia seeds, for example, are rich with antioxidants which promote healthy skin, hair and help with overall cell protection. Flax meal is known to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer, and is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Lastly, recent research on hemp seeds has indicated they are more than 20 percent protein and contain high amounts of vitamin-E, along with other essential minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, and zinc. So, if you’ve got an extra 10 minutes – yes, that’s all! – grab some key limes and start zesting!
