Lime is one of the  most delicious flavours of summer — sour, bright, pungent, it is a perfect refresher in hot weather. If you are looking for something a little more yoga friendly than a mojito (ahem!) try these no-bake Key lime pie bars. They are easy to make, vegan and gluten free.

The recipe is from the Minimalist Baker, which is a terrific site. It focuses on amazing food made from simple, whole food ingredients. Whenever I browse I immediately want to try every recipe!
