Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 150 g (1 cup) walnuts chopped or ground
  • 4 tbsp ground flaxseed organic
  • 1 pinch Fleur De Sel or Mediterranean Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp almond flour organic
  • 2 tbsp Stevia blend sweetener (you can use Monk fruit blend)
  • 1 tsp natural rum flavouring (You can use plain rum)
  • 120 g (1 cup) melted butter grass-fed

Cream

  • 6 medium eggs free-range
  • 2 tbsp Stevia blend sweetener (you can use Monk fruit blend)
  • 1 whole lemon zest organic
  • 12 drops natural orange flavouring (or orange peel essential oil)
  • 2 whole lemon juice organic
  • 600 g (2, 1/2 cup) sour cream organic

Decoration

  • 2 tbsp earlier prepared pie cream
  • 8 drops natural orange flavouring you can use natural food colouring

Instructions
 

Crust

  • Melt the butter and add the natural rum aroma.
  • Mix walnuts, flaxseed, salt, stevia and almond flour and add melted butter. Mix with your hand and tap in this mixture into a pie pan. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Cream

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with stevia, lemon zest, natural orange flavouring and slowly start adding lemon juice. Beat until you get a foamy emulsion.
  • Heat the sour cream in a deep saucepan and at the moment it starts boiling remove it from heat. Slowly start pouring in the eggs mixture and keep mixing with a whisk. At this point return the saucepan to very low heat and keep stirring. You will want the cream to thicken, so be patient and wait for it to get a nice creamy consistency. Don't stop stirring.
  • Let the cream cool down for at least 15 to 20 minutes. Take 2 tbsp out in a small glass and add extra orange flavouring to get a darker orange colour. This will serve as the decoration. 
  • Using a ladle, pour it slowly over the frozen crust. Decorate the pie by sprinkling it with your darker orange cream. Using a wooden stick, create mandala art effects. You can see how it's done in the video tutorial. 
  • Freeze for 1 hour or leave it in the refrigerator for at least 15 hours before serving.
