Raw Coconut and Lime Cheesecake

I developed this recipe because I love raw desserts. However, my little one is allergic to about 50% of nuts and it’s hard to find recipes that don’t include the ones she’s allergic too. Almonds are safe in this house, so that’s I’ve what I’ve included in the base as they are mild in taste and don’t over power the tangy goodness of the lime.
