This key lime pie is a low-carb, fat burning, ketogenic dessert recipe that helps to reduce inflammation and improves metabolic function. It is easy to make and tastes wonderful. I know you will love it!
Coconut provides medium chain fats that are easier on the digestive system and turn into ketones with fewer steps than long-chain fatty acids. This makes the process of using fat as your fuel source easier on the body and turns you into a lean, mean fat burning machine.
In this key lime pie, we use grass-fed beef gelatin for this recipe which provides high quality collagen peptides in a gelatinous form that thickens the recipe. The collagen protein provides key amino acids that support healthy intestinal lining, joints, skin, nails and bones.
We used stevia in this recipe as it is a healthy natural sweetener that does not impact your blood sugar and has nutritional value. If you don’t do well with stevia, you can also try the Honest keto maple syrup here or the Lakanto brand keto maple syrup here. Both of these are made from natural ingredients and do not contain anything that elevated blood sugar levels.
