After my friend Laura, from Gluten Free Pantry, made her no-bake vegan key lime pie, I started dreaming about it and wanted to make a SCD version. I’m trying to “beef up” my SCD dessert list here. The only thickener allowed on SCD (aside from eggs) is gelatin. Luckily, it works just perfect for this recipe. I did try this recipe with eggs, but it was too eggy for my taste and didn’t set up quite right. If you like tart, well this dessert if for you. I LOVE tart, it’s my favorite (far more than the sweet, sweet chocolaty stuff my husband devours). My daughter loves this pie like mommy, but my son (who is almost 3) says it’s “spicy.” Cute. The coconut cream is so sweet with a hint of lemon, and the light texture balances the thick tart lime filling. I’m in love with this. Thank you Laura for the inspiration!
