Happy Easter Raw Vegan Key Lime Baby Pies

I have been thinking of making a lot more sweet stuff, but healthy alternatives instead of the sugary junk everyone stuffs themselves with. I thought this raw vegan key lime pie was perfect, and I haven't seen it done this way anywhere. It's delicious & fruity and perfect for this season.

Ingredients (for 5 little pies)

1/3 cup dried mulberries
1/4 cup raw almonds
2 dates

1 big lime
1/2 ripe avocado
2-3 tbsp cultured coconut yogurt
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/3 cup soaked cashews
Stevia (depending on how sweet you want it)
drizzle coconut nectar 

For the crust, grind your dried fruit & nuts in your food processor so that they become a crumbly sticky paste. For me it took about 5 good minutes, but I am guessing it depends on the food processor you use. I don't think a blender would work for this crust in particular, so I would def invest in a small food processor. I got mine on amazon and its tiny, but I only payed about $15 with shipping. 
Once it's all ground take 5 little silicon cupcake forms and a table spoon and press it into the bottom of the form making sure it sticks and its compact and concentrated. Then you can stick the forms in the freezer to solidify while you are making the filling. 

For the "lime" part of the key lime pie you take your lime and shave off at least 1/4-1/3 of lime zest to put into the filling and then squeeze half of the limes juice in your food processor too.

The cashews for the filling should be soaked for at least 30 min to an hour (more if you can), the more they soak, the creamier the consistency of the filling will be. 

The filling, consisting of all of the ingredients listed above is just blended up in a food processor and then layered on top of the crust, making them look like little cupcakes. 

Then all you do is stick them in the freezer for an hour or two 
and you've got your dessert. Thats the best thing about raw baking: 
No cooking. 

These are amazing, and perfect for your easter holiday festivities, or really any day of the year, since they are guilt free and quite easy and quick to make.
I hope you all had a great Easter!
