When I lived in California, I had avocado trees in my backyard. So I came up with this about 38 years ago. Don't tell anybody it has avocado in it, they will think it's key lime pie! It's so easy and good!

This was a good recipe, but I added an extra avacado, the juice of 1 lime, and a package of reduced fat cream cheese. The avocado flavor was very faint, but it was really good. Read More

I hate bad reviews from people that are not satisfied with anything but their own cooking. I am not a picky eater. I have to be honest though and say that I REALLY did not care for this pie. Read More

This "key lime pie" was tremendously easy to make and so divine to eat. I used the juice of one lemon, about 1/8 cup and it was quite enough. Read More

We have huge avocados here and I got tired of always making avocado milkshakes. Spotted this and haven't turned back since! I agree that it needs to be a LARGE avocado (or 2 small store bought ones) to be good. It's become a family favorite. I make my own cookie crumble crust though since prepared pie shells are unavailable but I'm certain that the pie shell would be delicious too. Read More

I'm giving it a 4 for potential and creativity. I'm used to avocados in savory things not sweet which I think made it harder for me to enjoy this. On that note this is really easy to make. I used a graham cracker crust and would stick with that. My pie wouldn't set up so I had to freeze it. First bite was good very sweet then suddnly felt overwhelmed by the sweet and was left with an avocado after taste that was a little weird for me. I did reduce the lemon juice a little and probably shouldn't have. I may try this with 8 oz of cream cheese next time. Personally I'm not planning on making this again soon especially with how expensive avocados are. BUT if you like avocados give it a try. Read More
