Lime & Coconut Tarts (Recipe)
Who doesn't love the creamy tartness of a lime pie? It's like Summer on your tastebuds! Unfortunately, the traditional recipe is usually based on sugar, butter and more sugar... We've come up with a raw version using some of the best whole food dessert ingredients you can find.
Though it is not even close to Summer in the US right now, why not treat your tastes-buds to something that will take you there? This dairy-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar free tart will do the trick!
