Who could resist a fat-burning dessert? Is that an oxymoron?? It may sound too good to be true, but Kimberly Snyder has created this delicious, raw key lime pie recipe that you can make super quickly and easily in your high powered blender, such as a Blendtec or Vitamix! We love using unrefined coconut oil in our healthy recipes, which contains Lauric Acid. This unprocessed, cholesterol free oil can help stimulate the thyroid, which in turn increases your metabolism and helps burn stored fat! It’s the perfect creamy and satisfying dessert for anyone who craves something sweet and wants to indulge guilt-free, especially in the summer! Both adults and kids will enjoy these tasty key lime pie bars!

BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
“All ingredients are readily available. I tried this with both key limes and regular limes (as key limes are not always readily available); both results were very toothsome and delish! This tastes like a frozen key lime pie…really…and you can make it as sweet, or as tangy, as you desire. I might try this with fresh lemon juice, or a combination of lemon and orange.” “I had everything in my pantry! The amount of stevia I used was about 1/2 teaspoon. I was a little worried the cashews would overpower the recipe, but this did not happen. It tastes like a lime creamsicle. The end result is a lot more like ice cream than I expected. Which is perfect because I have not had anything resembling ice cream in a year and my cravings have been bad!”
