Key Lime Avocado Pie

This Key Lime Pie is a refreshingly sweet and tart tropical dessert that wins over everyone's tastebuds!   And it's so easy to create!  No cream, no eggs, no butter, and no processed graham crackers. A creamy tart and sweet lime pudding sits atop a sweet walnut and oat crust. I have always loved creamy Key Lime Pie, but could not give in to my cravings because of the butter and cream. Fresh avocados with a splash of coconut milk are the secret to this much loved traditional recipe.

Cook time   0 minutes    

Yield               8 servings

🌱 Ingredients

     Crust:

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

     Filling:

  • 4 avocados
  • ½ cup lime juice (5-6 limes)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • Zest from 2 limes

Garnish:

  • 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced

👩‍🍳 Directions

  1. To make the crust, pulse the crust ingredients into a food processor to form a coarse meal that has started to come together. Press into a 9-inch tart or pie pan. Set aside.

  2. To make the filling, put the filling ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Be sure to blend until the mixture is completely combined, creating a smooth and creamy pudding-like texture.

  3. Pour the filling mixture into the crust and spread evenly. Place the pie into the freezer for 1-2 hours until firm, then decorate with coconut flakes and lime slices. Slice and serve cold. Store the pie in the freezer or refrigerator.

You can also add the avocado filling to popsicle molds to create refreshing key lime popsicles!
