Put the lime in the coconut…or is the coconut in the lime? Either way, you’ll eat ‘em both up – and now the whole family can, too. Though these snack-sized pies taste a lot like a beach-worthy adult beverage, they’re completely kid-friendly. Each mini treat is a simple mixture of creamy coconut milk and cashew butter that gets topped off with a zesty tinge of fresh lime juice. Try not to put a straw in the blender and sip it all up!
