Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 16 servings
  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs (vegan or gluten-free, if needed)
  • ¾ cup dairy-free buttery spread or sticks
  • ⅜ cup (6 tablespoons) sugar
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cracker crumbs, butter alternative, and sugar until combined.
  2. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 10-inch spring-form pan or into 2 regular (9-inch) pie pans.
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the coconut milk, lime juice, and sugar. Place the pan over medium heat, and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat, add the white chocolate and stir until smooth. Allow to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the ice cream and lime zest together with a hand mixer. Slowly beat in the cooled white chocolate mixture.
  4. Spoon the filling into your spring form pan or divide it between the 2 pie pans, and smooth it out.
  5. Cover the pie and freeze overnight.
  6. Remove the pie from the freezer. If using a springform pan, run a sharp knife around inside of spring form pan to help loosen the pie. Release spring form ring from the bottom of the pan and transfer the pie to a serving plate.
  7. Cut the pie into wedges with a knife that has been dipped into hot water and serve immediately. Store leftovers in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Tip: Instead of discarding the lime and sugar water, you can save it and use it for cocktails, or a nice lime ice tea.

Candied Lime Peel Garnish Option: Remove the peels from 4 limes, and slice the peels into strips. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over medium heat. Add the peels and blanch them for a few minutes. Remove the peels and discard the water. Return the peels to the pan and cover with 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water. Simmer, covered, over low heat for 1 hour. Remove the peels and drain until almost dry. Roll in sugar and let cool.
