Avocado Pie with Agave Nectar



I usually don't give out our secret recipes but this one is too good to not give out for friends and readers.   It's so simple and so good for you!  If you use agave nectar you are doing much better than using sugar, or honey.  So I would suggest the agave!




If you love avocados, you'll love this recipe!  This is a no-bake pie.  And you can let your little ones help you or your husband like I had my husband make the whole thing while I snapped pictures of him having a good time!


INGREDIENTS:


1 (9-inch) prepared graham cracker crust
2 avocadoes (peel them, pit and puree)
1/8 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 (5 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (LIGHT!)




DIRECTIONS:
1.  In a medium mixing bowl combine avocado, agave nectar, lemon juice, and condensed milk.  


2. In a blender... mix all these ingredients and pour into shell.


3. Smooth over with a spatula.

4.  Chill before serving.

5.  Garnish with whipped topping and your favorite fruit!  We grow strawberries year-round in Oxnard so this is what we use! Enjoy!

Interesting! Never heard of avocado pie. Actually never had sweet avocado. Since its no bake I guess I would probably like it. I have two avocados on the counter to get ripe hmm...
