The Pie

The secret is out. I’m going to share thee recipe. Like every good new raw foodie, I learned of the wonders of avocado based desserts quickly upon discovering the famous avocado pudding. This concept was then plopped into a crust and called a pie.


I’m a fairly practical person, not usually a perfectionist, and although I lean to the type A personality, I still live in reality. Anyway, this pie is different. It took me a year to perfect. Every attempt was “good”, but I always tasted more potential. It was among my family’s favorites and oohed and awwed over by anyone else who tried it, so the recipe quickly became top secret. You see I had dreams of selling this and other pies. Then my sister started a baking business, and I soon lost my desire to sell my pies. If someday, down the road I feel inclined, I can and will, even if the whole world knows my secret recipe. Let’s just say I’ve got my name on this recipe, but it’s time I shared :)

So welcome to the wonderful world of The Pie.

Key Lime Pie
crust:
1 c oat groats (soaked and dehydrated)
1/2 c coconut oil
1/4 c golden flax seeds
1 T raw honey
1/2 t Celtic Sea salt

filling:
4 large avocados
1 c fresh lime juice
1 c coconut oil
1 c raw honey
1/4 c Irish moss gel

First grind oat groats, flax seeds, and salt into a flour. Process with remaining ingredients and press into a spring form pan (a spoon is helpful to get it evenly distributed). Refrigerate.

In a high speed blender thoroughly blend all filling ingredients. Pour into crust, refrigerate, and set 12-24 hours. It should be as firm as a cooked cheesecake, so be patient :)


On a different note. It’s fall and my cat is cute :)

  1. I am drooling to try this pie! It sounds amazing. Do you think it could be somewhat successful without the Irish moss?
    Thanks for the lovely recipes and the photography to make everything better.

  2. Love: The filling ingredients without Irish moss make an equally yummy pudding. However, without it the pie never firms up like a cheesecake. Hope that helps! And thank you for your sweet compliments :)

  3. Hi, I’m interested in making this for a friend when he drives down to visit. I’m wondering if the avocados in the pie filling brown over time? I want to make this pie ahead of time, but I’m worried about the browning.

  4. Che: With the amount of lime juice you use the pie will stay nice and bright green :) Be sure to use green avocados without any browning or bruises and it should be just fine.
