Avocado Key Lime Pie


Ingredients for Crust:

2 tablespoon coconut butter
6 Medjool dates
1 cup toasted almond slices
½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt

Ingredients for Filling:
2 ripe avocados
¾ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (I used key limes but regular limes will work, too)
⅓ cup maple syrup or coconut nectar or raw honey
1-2 tablespoon coconut flour (see notes)
2 cans of full fat coconut milk, refrigerated over night

Instructions for Crust:
-Slowly melt coconut butter over low heat (careful, it burns easily!)
-In the meantime, pit and cut dates into small pieces and place in food processor; process for 1-2 mins
-Add almond slices and coconut flakes and process again for about 1-2 minutes
-Finally, add the melted coconut butter, vanilla extract and salt and process until you have a sticky, crumbly mass
-Press crust into pie dish and refrigerate
Instructions for Filling:
-Peel avocados and place in food processor together with lime juice, maple syrup and coconut flour and process until smooth and thick
-Carefully remove coconut milk from refrigerator (don’t shake!), open coconut milk cans and scoop out cream that has accumulated at the top into a separate bowl (you won’t need the coconut milk for this recipe; I recommend making a smoothie with it!)
-Whisk with a hand mixer until thick and stiff; until it resembles regular dairy whipped cream (see notes)
-Add avocado mix to coconut cream and continue with hand mixer until well incorporated
-Pour filling into pie dish and place in freezer for 2-3h or until the center is firm
-Transfer to refrigerator and chill for another 2h before serving
-Keep refrigerated
Some cans of coconut milk seem to produce thin (or thinner) coconut cream. If the coconut cream that has accumulated on top of the coconut milk is rather liquid-y, you may have to use the hand mixer for up to 5 minutes to stiffen the cream and add 2 tablespoon of coconut flour to the avocado mix rather than 1 tablespoon.
