3          medium ripe avocados, peeled and pitted

1/2       cup coconut cream

1/3       cup fresh lime juice

1/2       teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Place all the pie crust ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until combined.
  • Grease a circular cake springform pan lightly with coconut oil and press the mixture on to the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pan; it does not need to be even.
  • Place in the fridge to set.
  • Place all the filling ingredients in a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.
  • Taste for sweetness, adjust as needed.
  • Pour into chilled pie crust, and place back in the fridge to set for at least two hours.
  • The pie can be served semi-frozen
  • Whip the remaining coconut cream with the sweetener and vanilla until soft peaks form
  • Serve topped on slices of pie, garnished with lime slices and mint leaves.

Notes

Adjust the sweetness according to taste, a little goes along way. I prefer to use a both maple syrup and monk fruit together for taste, monk fruit can be used alone.
