Filling:

  • juice the limes into a large bowl and sprinkle top with the gelatin powder

  • pour filling over the crust and chill overnight
  • once the filling is completely set cut into squares and serve. Top with coconut whipped cream.

Notes

*Coconut butter is not the same as coconut oil. Coconut butter is made from dried shredded coconut. The coconut is processed until it becomes creamy like peanut butter. Below is a link to the one I use.
