Dairy-free Raw Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Bars are a sweet and sour treat that can delight your tastebuds.
A few months ago I realized I hadn’t made any kind of lime-infused dairy-free, gluten-free cheesecake, and that had to change right away. I texted my husband when he was out that day to ask if he’d stop at the store to get a bag key limes. Once I got it in my head I was making these bars, there was no turning back.
I was surprised that every recipe for a raw key lime pie cheesecake that I saw on-line was made with avocado. If you’ve followed me last year at all when I posted, basically, a new smoothie a week, you will know the one thing I couldn’t do was bring myself to put an avocado in my smoothie. I don’t know what it is. I have some kind of block in my brain that thinks avocado should go on salads and in guacamole but not in smoothies or in raw desserts. I hope I can change this some day.
So to add a little natural green hue, I added a vegetable. Can you guess what it might be??? If you guessed spinach, you are dead on! The taste of raw spinach is hard to detect in desserts and in smoothies.
The Verdict: The combination of the sweetness from the maple syrup crust in contrast to bite of the lime is simply divine. I also love making two of these at the same time, and keeping one in the freezer ready to serve at a moment’s notice.
