On Tuesday I named my Produce Mom Picks™ for a Wisconsin retailer’s upcoming ad. I named Hass Avocados as my primary Pick & the co-stars for this ad included some of the Avocado’s classic compliments – namely, limes!
Avocado is often used for guacamole dips, salad toppings, etc. Not so often, however, Avocados are used in desserts… but they should be! Avocados are a healthy substitute for butter or cream! Avocados offer the same creamy texture as butter & while they do have a high fat content, avocado fat is the “good fat” aka monosaturated fat aka the kind that lowers cholesterol. I’m often experimenting in my kitchen & exploring ways to incorporate more produce into my recipes and avocado substitution/addition is becoming more & more popular at my home!
Your typical custard pie would include cream or half-and-half & a bunch of eggs. That same velvety decadence can be achieved with avocados. Enjoy this recipe that showcases 2 of my upcoming Picks: Hass Avocados & Limes.
My avocado pie is so easy and super unique!
Give this simple pie the professional’s touch—use a piping bag & tip to decoratively apply the whipped cream.
Piping the edges takes 2 minutes & makes a huge difference in presentation.
So pretty…and tastes great too!
Next week we will talk about Hass Avocados—and why I selected them as a Produce Mom Pick!
