These raw cheesecake squares are simple to make but contain a delightfully complex flavor. The lime is citrusy sweet, the pistachio is salty, and the coconut adds a nice tropical flair. Enjoy these straight out of the freezer for an icy treat or allow them to soften a bit for a creamy dessert. Either way, they're delicious!
