Avocado and Lime Pie

img_4874

 

This the pie I made for my son and his girlfriend when they visited tonight, vegan and raw. ย It was lush and although a little fattening, very healthy as made with avocado, limes, honey ( I know some vegans won’t eat honey) and a base of dates, almonds, coconut and dairy free chocolate. I love the vivid green colour too.

I didn’t have any but I did lick the knife!

The rest is in the freezer for when the diets over ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Did you just use the words avocado, lime and pie in the same sentence? Those are my secret passwords to eternal happiness and ultimate yumminess. I am not too sure if you have a recipe you follow and feel like sharing, otherwise, I feel a google search coming on. Thanks, you made me smile. xo Harlon
