Vegan Key Lime Pie

Key lime anything is pretty much the perfect summer treat, and luckily for all of us (you know the ones who do LIKE key lime) this is the perfect little pie - just the right amount of tart and sweet.The other night we had a friend over for dinner, we decided it was going to be our "key lime extravaganza" night and all that really included was Stewart's Key Lime soda and this pretty yummy key lime pie that I made. I would have to say that our dinner extravaganza was a success. I had a small piece of the pie and everyone else devoured it. Thanks guys!

Vegan Key Lime
 Pie 2 8 oz packages of Toffutti better than cream cheese, softened 
3/4 C sugar in the raw 
1 TS pure vanilla extract 
1/4 C key lime juice (if you can't find that you can use regular lemon juice) 
Zest of 1 lime 1/4 C all purpose flour, sifted 
1/4 C vanilla soy milk - I use 8th Continent 
1 Premade graham cracker crust, or you could get fancy with it and make your own. Choose wisely
1 container of Rich Whip

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixture or with a hand held mixer, beat together the cream cheese and sugar. Add in the remaining ingredients, and beat until smooth. Pour into crust and bake for 35-40 minutes or until set but still a bit jiggly.
I took mine out at about 32 minutes, so keep an eye out! Let cool completely and prepare the rich whip according to package directions. I never sweeten mine, I like it how it is but if you want you can. Again, choose wisely and enjoy!
