Last night I made this really easy and delicious pie. Who would have thought that avocados and limes can go together and make a dessert? The original recipe calls for a homemade crust, but I was lazy and just baked a frozen one. It turned out great. My picture (bottom) doesn’t do it justice.
Found this on www.foodgawker.com (I am addicted to this site)
3/4 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tart crust (recipe below)
Heat the cream in a small saucepan until small bubbles form around the edges. Remove from heat, add sugar, and stir until sugar dissolves. Pour the liquid in a bowl and allow to cool.
In a food processor, blend the avocado and cream cheese until smooth. Add lime juice and process again until smooth. Pour mixture into a bowl and whip in cooled cream.
Pour into tart crust and place in freezer for at least two hours. Allow to soften on kitchen counter about 15 minutes before serving.
