I feel like I haven’t posted a dessert recipe in FOREVER even though it was this PB and J Pie a couple of weeks ago. I was inspired to make another pie for y’all today, and I present you with our key lime pie! It has a homemade ginger cookie crust, and it is divine! The texture is perfectly creamy and it is the right amount of tart and sweet.
There is also no food coloring here! The green comes from just a tiny amount of matcha powder. It has fresh lime juice, lime zest, coconut cream, and is sweetened with agave nectar. The crust is crushed up ginger snap cookies and melted vegan butter, though coconut oil would also work. The recipe is quick to make, pop it in the freezer for a few hours, and enjoy! Top it with vegan whipped cream, crushed up ginger snaps, or goji berries like I did.
Should I Open A Pie Shop?
I’ve recently toyed around with the idea of doing a pop up shop and selling pies. They are a lot of fun to make. Once you have a base, you can do so many flavor combinations. I would sell whole pies and mini pies. What kind of pie would you want to buy? Let me know, and I may even take your suggestion and turn it into a recipe here!

Pin Our Key Lime Pie
- 1 10 oz box ginger snap cookies
- 3 tbsp melted vegan butter or coconut oil
- 1 cup lime juice (key lime or regular)
- 2 cans refrigerated coconut cream
- ¾ cup agave nectar
- 1 tbsp lime zest
- 1 tsp corn starch
- 1 tsp matcha powder (optional)
- Blitz the cookies in the food processor until they are crumbs, melt the butter, and combine in the food processor.
- Press the crust into a pie pan with your hands and let it set in the freezer.
- Open the canned coconut cream and drain the liquid. Since it was refrigerated, it will be solid. Scrape into a large mixing bowl, add in the lime juice, the agave, the zest and mix with a hand mixer.
- Once combined well add the matcha powder if you are and the corn starch.
- Fill the pie crust and let it set in the freezer overnight or for at least four hours.
- You will have extra filling. You can freezer it and eat it or make a mini pie!
