Avocado Pie, part 2

30 Comments

Now, what we’ve all been waiting for… avocado pie!!! I know that some of you might have passed on this post, or perhaps you’re furling your brow trying to imagine what in the world this must taste like. I’m just glad that I tried it way back when, because it really does sound strange. But, it’s delicious – and you really taste the avocado!

So, you now have the graham cracker crust – on to the filling!

Avocado Pie

1 can condensed sweetened milk
Juice of 4 large lemons
1 large or 2 medium ripe avocados

Crème fraiche, home-made if you can’t find it

Make sure the graham cracker crust has cooled completely before beginning with this filling.

Place all of the ingredients for the filling in a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour the green gloppiness into the crust, then smooth it out. Refrigerate for at least four hours, or overnight.

Serve with some crème fraiche or only slightly sweetened whipped cream, if desired.

You just have to try this pie if you like avocadoes and are intrigued by this dessert. I know it sounds strange, but it’s downright delicious.

  1. Yes, there it is, in all its glory! I know my Dad would absolutely love this…

    (by the way, I am flying to Brazil tomorrow, will have to show your pie to my niece, the baker extraordinaire in the family)

  2. what an interesting pie. I’m a sucker for unusual ingredients and I love avocados and sweets. won’t say I’ll make this (as am not much of a pie maker and overwhelmed with stuff) but I *really* hope to find this on a menu somewhere as would love to sample a taste

  3. Hi Mimi, I’d never have thought of this. The color looks nice in the shots with the whipped cream, but weird in the shot of the whole pie. Next time I’m having avocado, I’ll try a small piece with sugar to find out what it tastes like.

  4. Hi, Mimi. I bet this is delicious. This is similar to the avocado pie I have been meaning to make but haven’t gotten to yet except my recipe uses gelatin which makes it a little firmer.
    I finally made the avocado ice cream last night and am going to try to get it posted today. The combination of avocado and lime is really nice and makes a fabulous, very rich dessert. Nicely done. :)

  5. Hi Mimi. I have once done a chocolate cake with avocado cream filling for a baking competition back in university..we won the originality prize and the cake was really good. However this was nothing compared to your genius creation : an all avocado pie! Amazing! Definitely something to try! Just an aesthetic question: does the avocado cream become brown with time as avocados would, or is the lemon in the cream enough to prevent this?
