avocado pie

Let’s just get right into why this is amazing:

It’s no bake!

Right? You know how exciting that is.

Also, it’s made with avocados. So, you can act like you have superior tastes and like this is a healthy pie. (It’s not.)

And it’s made in a blender. (Is that better or worse than a hand mixer? I can’t decide.)

I found this recipe over at How About Orange. It’s originally from the California Avocado Commission. See more amazing avocado recipes here!

Ingredients:
2 avocados, peeled
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
graham cracker pie crust

 Instructions:
I just plopped everything in the blender and let it rip until the engine almost burnt out. Looking back, the recipe says to blend the avocado and lemon juice first, then add the condensed milk last, after the avocado is well-blended. Maybe that’s why mine came out looking like funfetti. Or because the blender isn’t the best. Whatever it was, I just went with it. Sometimes baking is about the mistakes.

Pour the mixture into a pre-made graham pie crust (I’m not above it), and refrigerate for at least an hour.

 The taste? Sort of like key lime pie. Or at least you’re tricked into thinking you’re about to eat key lime pie, because it’s so green. It’s a little creamier and definitely has a hint of avocado. I served it with whipped cream.

It so happens that I’m in a long distance relationship with my two best friends. And when they’re upset or hurting, having a bad day or broken hearted, I just feel awful that I can’t be there to console them.

What better way to cheer someone up than with freshed baked goodies? Meg’s Creations in a Jar are “layered with love.” She makes cookie mixes, soups, cupcakes, brownies, and pies. Since they’re in jars, you can ship them anywhere.
