Avocado Pie


By Lori Taylor

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.
