Raw Lime Avocado Pie

I had a few ladies from my Crossfit gym over last night and we had a blast! Most of them follow the Paleo Diet so I tried to find a recipe that would please everyone’s dietary needs. This pie looked really good so I decided to try it and I’m glad I did because it was delicious! Very rich but delish! Who would’ve thought to use avocados in a pie?!

This recipe uses a ton of limes so prepare yourself, I got quite a workout zesting them all!

Raw Lime Avocado Pie

Original recipe from Health Damy.

Crust Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Raw Cashews
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (a little extra to top it before serving too, if you wish)
  • 1/2 Cup Pitted Dates
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Lime Zest
  • 3 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • Dash of Salt
  • 4 Packets of Stevia
  • 2 Tbsp Agave (You can use maple syrup)

Mousse Ingredients:

  • 4 Large Ripe Avocados (Pealed and Pitted)
  • 1/2 Cup Lime Juice
  • 1/3 Cup Lime Zest (You’ll need 8-10 limes for this entire recipe)
  • 1/4 Cup Agave (or maple syrup)
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Dash of Salt
  • 8 Packets of Stevia

Directions:

  1. Place the crust ingredients in your food processor and blend until dough-like.
  2. Spray your 8 inch spring form pan with non-stick cooking spray – I’m sure any pan would work, really.
  3. Using your hands press the dough evenly into the pan.
  4. Place all mousse ingredients in your food processor and blend until smooth (stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides).
  5. Pour mousse over-top of crust.
  6. Chill in your refrigerator or freezer (depending on your desired texture) for at least 3 hours.
  7. Cut and serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!

    I use avocados in my chocolate mousse recipe so I’m not against avocados. I’ve never used them in a non-chocolate dessert. Was it reminiscent of key lime pie or just sort of a sweetened avocado pie? Just wondering, I could totally see myself making this.

    I cannot wait to make this; however, can you tell me how much sugar or honey I would use in place of the stevia? Thank you

    • I’m not sure about honey but i found a stevia conversion:
      1/4 tsp of stevia = 1Tbsp sugar
      Hope that helps!!
