This sounds unusual but it is DIVINE! give it a try and find a lifelong favorite. Plus it is amazingly simple to make.
- 1 graham cracker crust
- 1 avocado
- 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄2 pint whipped cream
- Mix the avocado, condensed milk, and lemon juice until smooth and creamy, using a blender or mixer (whichever works best).
- Pour the mixture into the graham cracker shell.
- Whip the cream with a little sugar to taste and spread on top of the avocado pie evenly.
- Refrigerate until firm (and then a little longer).
I prepared this drem pie from scratch as I did no have graham crackers on hand: I simply combined flour, sugar a pinch of cinnamon and enough margarine to form small crumbs. I pressed this mixture on the bottom and border of a mold. After baking and colling down I filled the crust as descibed. It was so good that we (4 people) are 3/4 of this. It was really difficult to stop eating! A big THANKS for posting this aweasome recipe.
Made as written for the Bahamas Region of Culinary Quest #3 - I say as written because that is true for the heart of the recipe - the filling. W/your kind permission, I did chg the presentation by using mini-tartlet shells as seen in the pic so I could get small individual servings for guests. FYI: The yield for my method was 10 well-filled mini-tartlets plus 2 6-oz ramekins. All that said, this is now my favorite recipe of CQ #3 so far. I love all things avocado & this recipe shined brightly because it was smooth, rich, creamy & tasty beyond my expectations. Great recipe! Thx for sharing it w/the Quest. :-)
I loved this pie and you would never know it was avocado except for the beautiful green colour! I made my own graham crust and then just served Cool Whip on the side when it was plated instead of putting it on top. Made for ZWT 9
