This Dairy-Free Key Lime Pie was inspired by some of my good friends. For my friend’s birthday, we wanted to make her favorite dessert instead of getting a traditional cake. Her favorite dessert is key lime pie. Unfortunately, I can’t eat traditional key lime pie because of my food allergies. My friends asked me if I had an allergy-free recipe because they wanted me to be able to share in the celebration too. No Pressure right??? So my first attempt at dairy-free key lime pie was for my friend’s birthday. They all loved it, but I knew it needed a few tweaks.
After a few revisions here is the new, updated recipe. It’s also gluten-free, and easy to make. This pie is for those who want to share in celebrations with others while managing food allergies. Give it try for your next summer gathering.
