No Bake Key Lime Pie Bites – These mini bites of key lime pie are extremely refreshing. They have fresh lime juice and zest which make them punch with flavour. In addition to this they have the creaminess of the cashews to balance the flavours.
The weather has been so hot recently and having something cold and refreshing to grab out of the fridge has been a god send. First we made an incredible lemon cheesecake and now we have these key lime pie bites. I think these have topped the cheesecake, if that is possible!
We keep these in the freezer as they firm up really well and it makes them nice and cold! You might need to let them thaw slightly, depending on your freezer. 5 minutes on the counter should be fine! It is totally up to you, see what works best.
They are similar to a cheesecake, honestly. The same type of base: a mix of oats, cashews and dates. Topped with a creamy and refreshing topping. We use oats in the base to reduce the amount of nuts (cost and balance) but also for a variety of texture.
