This Vegan Key Lime Pie is creamy and delicious, with a flavorful sweet and sour taste. I used some healthy ingredients like non-dairy yogurt, sugar free maple syrup and fresh squeezed lime juice. The crust is made from unsweetened coconut flakes and sugar free maple syrup.

Ingredients For Crust:
2 3/4 Cups of shredded (unsweetened coconut)
1/4 Cup of sugar free maple syrup

-Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a pie plate or tart pan and set aside.
To Make The Crust:
-In a medium size bowl, mix together the shredded coconut, maple syrup, vanilla extract and flour. The mixture should be able to stick together then press into a pan.
-Press the coconut mixture into the tart or pie pan, pressing the crust evenly into the bottom and sides of the pan.
-Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until coconut starts to lightly brown. Remove for oven and set aside.
To Make The Filling:
-In a large bowl, mix together the coconut yogurt, cornstarch, maple syrup, vanilla extract and lime juice.
-Pour mixed filling into the coconut crust and bake for 35-40 minutes. The crust should be a deep golden brown and filling will be somewhat set.
-Make sure the pie cools to room temperature then refrigerate the pie for 2 hours or over night, before serving. Remove from refrigerator and enjoy!
