Avocados are a great food. The best part about avocados is that they are super healthy for you. In fact, avocados are so good for you regardless of the fat and calorie content, you could eat one or two raw avocados every day and be super healthy!
Avocados are one of the richest sources of fiber among all fruits and vegetables. It is loaded with vitamins A, B-complex, B3 (folic acid), and powerful anti-oxidants such as vitamins C and E, calcium, iron, potassium, and so on. They are a great preventative measure against cancers (it literally kills cancer), heart disease, and strokes. As well as fighting off bad breath, great for mouth health, helping with digestion, great for the skin, lowers cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, great for the eyes – the list goes on and on and on! “See, FAT can be GOOD! You just have to pick the right kind!!!”
Believe it or not, avocados are a fruit – so what a perfect idea to make a “sweet” creamy avocado pie! The rich, buttery flavor of fresh avocados gives the creamy pie a delicious, sweet buttery cream flavor – really nice! Here’s my recipe for avocado pie. I hope you love it!
1 cup raw cashews (dry)
1 cup raw walnuts (dry)
2/3 cups pitted dates
2 T melted coconut butter
1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
Combine nuts in a food processor and pulse until almost flour-like in consistency. Add dates and pulse again until crumbly and well combined. Add remaining ingredients and blend again until a dough forms. Remove and transfer to pie pan. Spread dough out over the bottom and sides of the pan, evenly distributing it and pressing it down and smoothing it with your hands to create a shell. Place in the freezer until filling is completed.
1 1/4 cup Irish moss (soaked 24 to 38 hours, and drained)
1 cup raw almond nut milk
3/4 cup water
1 cup soaked cashews
1 tsp non-alcoholic organic vanilla extract
2 fully ripened avocados (peeled and stoned)
1 lemon zest
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup yacon syrup
1/3 cup raw agave nectar
1/4 cup raw honey (slightly warmed)
6 drops vanilla cream flavored SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia
Combine Irish moss, cashews, and nut milk together in a high-speed blender for food processor. Pulse until completely broken down and creamy, adding the water a little at a time. Add remaining ingredients and blend until thick, smooth, and creamy. It should hold a shape. Pour over pie crust. Spread evenly, cover with saran wrap, and place in the freezer for 12-18 hours before serving. Top with fresh berries, or berry puree.
This is so darn good! Fat never tasted so great!
