- 1⁄2 cup almonds, not soaked
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 21⁄2 tablespoon coconut oil

- 1/3 cup agave nectar

For the crust, place the almonds in a food processor and process until ground, like crumbs. Add the coconut, coconut oil and a pinch of salt and combine.
Divide this mixture between eight 21⁄2-inch tart pans or a 10-inch pie pan.
For the filling, place all of the filling ingredients, except the coconut oil, psyllium and shredded coconut in a blender and blend at high speed until completely smooth.
Add the coconut oil and psyllium and blend to combine. Pour over the crust and chill in the fridge uncovered for at least 1 hour.
To serve, garnish with shredded coconut and a thin sliver of lime peel.
