Try this one. If you can find Key lime juice, use it, but it is good
with regular lime.

Well, this is the recipe that you asked for, but you might be
disappointed in the results.  Then again you might not.  Not knowing
where you had the pie will tell what it was like.  The true Key Lime
pie, uses Key Lime juice and it is very hard to get outside of

      Title: Key Lime Shamrock Torte
 Categories: Desserts, Vegetarian, Cakes
   Servings:  6
      2 pk Firm silken tofu
    3/4 c  Brown rice syrup
    1/2 c  Honey
    3/4 c  Lime juice
      1 tb Agar powder
      4 tb Arrowroot
      2 tb Corn oil
      1 ea Carob cake, see recipe
      2 ea Kiwi fruits

      1 ts Agar powder
    1/2 c  Water
    1/2 c  Brown rice syrup
      2 dr Mint extract

  Blend the tofu, brown rice syrup, honey, lime juice, agar, arrowroot &
  corn oil until smooth.  Transfer to a double boiler & heat till the
  mixture thickens.  It should reach the consistency of heavy cream.  Set
  aside to cool.
  Split the carob cake into 2 layers (you'll need only 1 layer).  Line a
  9-inch cake pan with a sheet of plastic wrap.  Place one layer of cake in
  the bottom of the pan & refrigerate while the filling is cooling.

  When the filling is cool, pour it into the cake & refrigerate until the
  filling sets completely (about 2 hours).

  Peel the kiwi fruit, cut it into thin slices & fan out the slices over the
  entire torte.  Glaze if desired by pouring a thin layer of still warm
  glaze over the cool cake.  Refrigerate the cake again for 10 minutes
  before cutting it.
  To serve, remove the cake from the pan by lifting out on the plastic wrap.

  GLAZE: In a small pot, dissolve the agar in the water.  Add brown rice
  syrup & mint extract.  Bring to a simmer & remove from heat.  Allow to
  cool slightly.
