1/2 cupDates, pitted

1/2 cupPlain Yogurt or Coconut Yogurt (dairy free)
2-3Limes or about 4 Key Limes (about 2 tbsp zest, ¼ cup juice)
2 tbspHoney
1/4 cupCoconut Flakes (optional)


  1. Combine cashews, dates and 1 tbsp of lime zest in a food processor and pulse until it all comes together.
  2. Press mixture into a pie shell or into small muffin tins. You can line the tins with parchment paper for easy retrieval. Place in the freezer to set.
  3. Combine coconut milk, yogurt, lime juice, zest and honey in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into frozen shells and return to the freezer to set.
  4. Let them thaw about 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with coconut flakes.
  5. *To make your own coconut milk, combine 1 cup of grated coconut with 2 cups of hot water in a blender. Let it sit for two minutes. Blend on high for about 2 minutes. Strain through a cheese cloth or a clean dish towel and squeeze all the pulp to ring out any last bit of water. Transfer the coconut milk into a tight fitted jar and use as you would in any recipe. You can dry the remaining pulp in a low heated oven and grind into coconut flour.
