This Chocolate Avocado Pie with a Cashew Crust is so creamy and delicious! You honestly can’t even taste the Avocado, it tastes so incredibly chocolaty!
Whoever invented the first Chocolate Avocado Dessert was absolutely genius! I mean who would have ever thought that you could put Avocados in a dessert and make it taste good?!
This was actually my first time experimenting with Avocados to make a dessert. I’ve used them in Smoothies like this Healthy Chocolate Avocado Smoothie, which BTW is super good for breakfast.
What makes this Smoothie so chocolaty is the Cacao Powder, so I decided to make a yummy dessert with Avocado, Cacao Powder and a few other ingredients (full recipe below).
Now let’s take a moment to talk about this Cashew Pie Crust shall we? It is super easy to make!
In a large food processor (affiliate) add Raw Cashews, Sweetened Coconut Flakes and Cacao Powder. Blend 20-30 seconds until Cashews are finely chopped.
Add in the Maple Syrup and Coconut Oil. Blend until it forms a sticky dough.
Press the crust into an 8 inch Pie Pan. The crust will be sticky so it helps if you use a spatula or parchment paper to spread it out.
Then place it in the fridge to let it set.
Once the pie crust has set add in the Chocolate Avocado filling. Top with Cacao Nibs and place the pie back into the fridge for at least 4 hours.
Note: The crust will be sticky. If you want a more firmer crust just put it in the freezer for 30 minutes before serving.
I hope you guys love this Chocolate Avocado Pie with a Cashew Crust as much as we did! It’s:
- and Oh So Savory!
