"This pie is so rich and decadent it almost tastes more like a key lime cheesecake! I made it for a Caribbean-themed party without telling what was in it and everyone raved about it! I'm not even a vegan and I plan on making this one frequently. I got the recipe from VegWeb."

"The flavor of this is terrific, even though I didn't have the grated lime peel. It didn't firm up as much as I expected, but not one cared because it was so delicious. I wonder how it would be to freeze it. Thanks for a great recipe."
"We made this and it was fantastic! What I like most is the low sat fat aspect - less than 3 grams per 1/8 of 9" pie! Awesome recipe - I can't tell the difference from full fat key lime pie! This is so much healthier for most as well. We'll make it again and again...."
"Mine did not firm up very well and would have been better served as a parfait in individual glasses. Having said that, I am certain this is the same key lime pie that I enjoy at a local vegan restaurant. I made my own crust (blended 2 cups of granola with 2 TSP sugar and mixed with 4 TSP melted vegan butter. Voila!) The taste was good, but I'm not sure it is worth ALL that sugar (see the sugar content in the Mori-Nu pudding mix alone)."
"I liked the key lime pie so much that I made a variation. It is mango cream pie. I used mango juice in place of the key lime juice. I also put cubed mango in. It seemed like more than 1 cup. I forgot to put in the vegan cream cheese and it still tasted nice. I left out the sweetner. Everything else was the same. It was just as great as the key lime!"
"This pie is delicious!! I grew up in south Florida and this better than the real thing. I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and used agave nectar instead of honey. Amazing@!"
"I found this recipe to be very sour...were my key limes extra bitter for some reason? I'm not sure. If you like sweet, make a raspberry coulis or add A LOT more honey. Otherwise this is a great recipe. Note, it does not freeze well, mine because a key lime soup after I did that!"
"This pie is amazing! Easily one of the best vegan recipes I've ever made."
"This pie sets up really nice and firm and looks pretty with the specs of real lime rind. It was a little too bitter, so in the future I'll use one packet lemon pudding mix in place of one of the 2 vanilla pudding mixes and use a little less lime juice. Still a great vegan treat for everyone!"
"This is a great recipe that I've made at home - and also had at a restaurant in MD. I've used regular vanilla pudding mix, and it works just as well as Mori Nu."
