Avocado Key Lime PiePosted: May 24, 2022
I LOVE Key Lime Pie! BUT this way of making it has become my favorite dessert!!! This dessert is uncooked except for the pie shell, so making it very healthy, low glycemic and sugar free! The recommendation for eating avocadoes in 1/2 avocado a day for heart health.
Avocado Key Lime Pie
Key Lime Filling
2 ripe avocados
1/2 cup key lime juice
1 Tablespoon gelatin powder
8 oz cashew or sunflower cream cheese, room temperature
2 large Tablespoons of lime zest
1/3 Monk Fruit Sweetener
½ teaspoon stevia (or another ¼ cup sugar)
1 cup coconut milk, don’t shake it, just scoop the creamy part into the food processor
1 gluten free pie crust, baked and cooled
Key Lime Pie Filling
Place the lime juice in a small saucepan, whisk in the gelatin. Gently heat, while stirring, to dissolve the gelatin. Do not boil!
Place cream cheese, coconut milk/cream, lime/gelatin mix, lime zest, sugar, pinch of salt in food processor. Blend really well, you may have to stop and use a spatula to get it off of the sides and then continue blending.
Pour the mixture over the prepared crust, spread the top smooth and place in the fridge to set for at least 6 hours.
