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.

Prep time: 30 minutes    |    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.

✏️ Tips & Hints

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