I love the Lime Coconut flavour combo and it appears regularly throughout my many recipes. This pie was bound to happen, a version came through my inbox from one of the many recipe sites I subscribe to (for the life of me I cannot remember which) and this is the result. Their recipe was very complex and I have simplified it right down to this. You are literally making your own coconut condensed milk. So store that little fact away and pin this so you remember where to find it next time. If you are dairy free and there is a call for condensed milk, this is that!
The rest is simple. Perfect pastry (thank you) with loads of cream and that hit of lime. Just heaven.
