Raw Avocado Lime Tart


Raw Avocado Lime Tart | Nutrition Stripped

Avocado and lime go together far beyond the traditional savory way – avocado toast. I’m about to share with you one of the best desserts to share during the warmer seasons of the year, a completely raw, dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free Raw Avocado Lime Tart. It’s loaded with healthy fats, especially those from the avocado, but also the raw crust is made up from nuts, coconut, and a couple extra ingredients to boost the nutrition of this dessert making it a true #skinfood. Who doesn’t want that…especially for dessert!?

dessert #skinfood

When I’m asked to give my top recommendations on foods for healthy and glowing skin, I have a hunch you can guess what my #1 is. If not, it’s avocados! Avocados are truly a “beauty” food, if you will, because they’re full of healthy fats which we know are crucial to healthy hormones, strong and elastic cell membranes, and collagen. Healthy fats also aid in keeping our skin moisturized and hair strong. Not only are avocados rich in monounsaturated fats, but they also contain fiber which keeps our digestive systems healthy and moving along, another huge factor when we think about radiant skin. Avocados also contain vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, manganese…I could go on and on but I’ll let ya read up on the NS Pantry page for more specifics! Besides avocado, coconut oil and coconut in general are on my list for top “beauty” foods and guess what? This recipe has both coconut oil and shredded unsweetened coconut in it!

Have you ever had cheesecake? (yeah) Have you ever had key lime pie? (yeah) See what I’m doing there? I’m answering for you because I’m pretty confident that you guys have tried one of these and that you’ll LOVE this one. The Raw Avocado Lime Tart is a crazy-cool combination of these traditional desserts that embraces whole foods completely without any of the dairy, refined flours, or refined sugars. I use good ole’ avocados as the bulk of the pie filling, and lime balances the sweetness of the maple syrup and cuts the rich texture and flavor of all the healthy fats from the avocado. It’s a beautiful balance. Since it’s the summer, this is a go-to recipe I’ll bring when hanging out with friends by the pool, at a party, etc. People love it!

Raw Avocado Lime Tart
Recipe type: dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10-12
A thick and creamy vegan and gluten free friendly raw lime tart with avocados as the filling for a hearty, delicious, and simple to make dessert!
  • For the crust:
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted
  • ½ cup roasted pistachios
  • ½ cup pitted dates
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • For the filling:
  • 5 avocados, pitted and skins removed
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • Juice from 6 limes
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Stevia to taste, optional
  • Optional garnishes, to serve: fresh mint, toasted coconut, lime wedge, bee pollen, crushed pistachios
  1. Grease a pie tin (preferably with a removable bottom) with coconut oil.
  2. In a food processor, combine all the crust ingredients and blend until the mixture holds together when you push it between two fingers.
  3. Pour the crust into the well greased pie tin and firmly push crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides until an even layer of crust is covering the entire pie pan. Place in the fridge to harden and cool while you make the filling.
  4. In a high speed blender or food processor, add all filling ingredients and blend until velvety smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste (add more sea salt if needed, add stevia to sweeten, etc., but you want it to still be tangy).
  5. Pour this mixture into the chilled crust from the fridge and evenly smooth out the top using a spatula. Place complete pie in the fridge to firm overnight or in the freezer for up to 2 hours or until firm before serving.
  6. To serve use a hot knife (run under hot water) to slice, serve with optional garnishes and enjoy! Store in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for 3 weeks.
This recipe is inspired by Hemsley and Hemsley's Avocado Cheesecake which you can find here.

  • Karli

    Hi, you stated toasted coconut and roasted pistachios. Did you buy them both already toasted/roasted or did you do them yourself?

    • McKel Hill

      You can do both! I toasted them myself on a dry skillet until fragrant, but if you do buy them from the store, get them unsalted 🙂


    This is delicious! I used what I had on hand–which meant, sweetened coconut, mixed unsalted nuts instead of almonds, cashews instead of pistachios. Didn’t need any more sweetener than the maple syrup in the recipe. This is very rich, just a small piece is all you need.

    • McKel Hill

      Yes a very small piece goes a long way as with all desserts should be! 😉 Glad you enjoyed it Susan

  • Felicia

    This sounds delicious! I’m allergic to almonds tho :-(. Do you have a suggestion for what you think would be the best substitute? Thank you!

    • McKel Hill

      You can use sunflower seeds or walnuts instead of almonds!

      • Felicia

        Thank you! ????????????????

  • Mickey

    Looking to make this in a pinch, but have no shredded coconut on hand – is it necessary?

    • McKel Hill

      It helps give the crust it’s texture, but you can just add extra nuts/seeds you have on hand and adjust per texture! Hope that helps Mickey xM

  • Leslie Cain

    Made this over the week-end, sprinkled w/ hemp seeds. Very good and rich!

    • McKel Hill

      Love that idea! xxo

  • Jisnne

    Does it turn brown if you don’t eat immediately or does the lime solve that problem?

    • McKel Hill

      Lime helps, but also it should be enjoyed within 3 days or so! I haven’t had an issue with it turning brown even 5 days in the fridge/freezer!

  • Courtney

    This was sooooo good- maybe the best dessert I’ve ever made!! It took me 1.5 hours to make with clean up and my filling is pretty tart when I followed your directions (didn’t add any extra sweetener bc i got lazy at end and liked the tartness- hope my dessert sharers like it)
    The downfall in my opinion was the price to make it.
    I’m wondering if you have thought of or tried less pricey crust options? like oats or some sort of gluten free cookie/cracker ?
    Thank you for posting !! <3

    • McKel Hill

      SO glad you enjoyed it Courtney! The crust ingredients are considered NS staples in the pantry! You can easily swap out some of the nuts and seeds for sunflower seeds or more affordable nuts/seeds. ALSO, it’s a very beautiful and special dessert 😉
