Ingredients

For the graham cracker crust

  • 1/4 Cup organic almond flour
  • 3/4 Cups organic coconut flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup organic coconut oil, softened
  • 1/4 Cup organic sugar
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla

For the filling

  • 4 Ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 Cups juice
  • 1 Tablespoon unflavored gelatin
  • 14 Ounces can Heavenly organic sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 Cup fat-free organic Greek yogurt
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

For the graham cracker crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Mix the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. In a seperate bowl small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix until combined. 

Using your fingers, press the dough evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie or tart pan.

Bake for 15 minutes for a pie (7 minutes for a tart) if you will not be baking any further after adding your filling. Cool completely, then add filling.

If your filling requires baking, bake the crust for 5-7 minutes until it's a very light golden color. Freeze the crust for 30 minutes, then add the filling and return to the oven. You may also need to cover the edges as almond flour burns easily. 

For the filling

Combine 3 tbsp. lime juice and gelatin in a small bowl and let sit until gelatin softens, about 5 minutes. Microwave until mixture is bubbling around the edges and gelatin has dissolved, about 30 seconds. In a stand mixer, combine the condensed milk, yogurt, and cream cheese and blend until smooth. 

With the machine running, pour in the gelatin mixture, remaining lime juice, zest, and vanilla, and beat until thoroughly combined. 

Scrape the mixture into the pie shell and smooth the top. Cover plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 3 hours.
