  • 1/2 c raw pistachios (soaked in water for 2 hours then drained)

  2. Line a 5-inch springform pan or 3-inch x 5.5-inch container with parchment paper. Press the crust onto the bottom of whatever vessel you use to create an even flat layer.
  3. Place the crust in the freezer while you work on the filling.

For the Filling

  1. Add all of the ingredients, except that 1/4 cup of pistachios, to a food processor or high-speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Remove the crust from the freezer and pour the filling onto the prepared crust. Gently mix in that 1/4 cup of pistachios, leaving several on the top to make it pretty.
  3. Place this back in the freezer for about 5-6 hours to properly harden.
  4. Slice the cake and enjoy. Keep leftovers in the freezer.
