We are so excited about this Raw Key Lime Pie Protein Cup Cake Pie Recipe!! Ever since we visited Key West last year and had a slice of Key Lime Pie we knew we had to recreate a healthier version of this creamy and delicious dessert! As we know the original version of the Key Lime Pie is so rich and sweet but also loaded with unwanted calories and high in sugar. Our recreated version has added protein and uses a sugar free syrup as a sweetener. The sweetener can easily be exchanged for coconut sugar or Stevia if desired. This raw key lime pie is a no bake recipe and it is a great guilt free dessert!


RAW KEY LIME PROTEIN CUP CAKE PIE RECIPE is a protein loaded, sugar and guilt free dessert.

    Key lime is a favorite in my family. I love finding recipes that don’t rely on refined sugar for that touch of sweetness.

    I like how this dessert is added with a touch of lime so at least I know it is not as sweet and quite refreshing! And on top of that it is loaded with protein, great for me as I am into bodybuilding but I do need my treat and can have this in my cheat day!

    I love recipes that use protein powder. That way my kids get the needed protein as we do eat meat here.

    This is such an interesting name for a dessert that is full of protein. This would be great for me as I am a fitness geek and into bodybuilding but at times, I crave for dessert and this fit me well as it full of protein.
